AITKEN IN WED NIGHT AT THE RITZ.

DISGRACED former cabinet minister Jonathan Aitken yesterday married the former wife of actor Richard Harris in London.

Aitken, 60, wed travel consultant Elizabeth Harris at St Matthew's, Westminster yesterday.

Guests included former chancellor Norman Lamont, Labour MP Diane Abbott and To The Manor Born actor Peter Bowles.

Mr Aitken's three daughters were there, as were the bride's sons by her marriage to Harris who played Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films.

Aitken served seven months of an 18-month sentence for perjury after a failed libel trial hinging on a Paris hotel bill.

His spokesman Ashley Merry said: "They will be spending their wedding night at the Ritz in London and I can assure you Jonathan has paid in advance by cheque."
