Alex Kingston sobbed at her wedding to her third husband, Jonathan Stamp, on July 18, 2015. The wedding took place at the All Saints Anglican Church in Rome, Italy, where the Doctor Who star went down the aisle for the third time in her life.
Kingston, surprisingly, donned a pastel green skirt instead of the typical white gown. Similarly, her husband, Stamp, wore a white shirt and a black suit. Her daughter, Salome Violetta Haertel, was among the bridesmaids, dressed in her black prom gown.
Alex Kingston’s first husband Ralph Fiennes
The actress was married to actor Ralph Fiennes for a while before marrying freelance journalist Florian Haertel. Kingston met Fiennes while studying at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Before marrying him in 1993, she dated him for 10 years. Unfortunately, their marriage did not endure more than four years when Fiennes chose the love of actress Francesca Annis, who was eighteen years his senior. Ralph Fiennes was Alex Kingston’s first wife.
After their divorce in 1997, Kingston felt worthless and was plagued by suicidal thoughts. She relocated from the United Kingdom to Los Angeles in an effort to escape the turbulence surrounding her marital problems. After almost two decades, the actress acknowledged that she had forgotten about the misery she had been forced to through.
“I no longer have any feelings for him or her [Annis]. I can’t believe I was ever married to him after all these years “In 2012, Kingston revealed with Standard.
She also remembered seeing the 2005 picture The Constant Gardener, starring Ralph Fiennes, as the first time she saw him on screen following their divorce. Kingston said that she watched the whole film with ease and liked the experience of seeing her ex-husband on the big screen. The actress claimed she loved Fiennes’ performance but was not emotionally connected to him, which she described as a positive thing. According to her, time may have healed her emotional traumas, as well as her second marriage, which may have helped her look forward in life.
