Prince William’s old flame from Kenya, Jessica (Jecca) Craig, got married there over the weekend, to one Jonathan Baillie, a Canadian-born animal-conservation scientist. Wills attended the wedding; his wife didn’t.

The prince and Craig were never officially a couple, but last week the British papers were full of stories about how she was his first love, back when they were teens. Five years ago Jecca, with her then-boyfriend, attended William’s wedding to Kate Middleton.

Craig’s parents founded a rhinoceros sanctuary and still have an estate nearby; that’s where she got married Saturday. The groom is an endangered-animals expert at the Zoological Society of London.

Conveniently, William was in Kenya for a hastily arranged official visit with the president, Uhuru Kenyatta. Kate was home with the kids.

Wills is 33. Craig is 34.
