Last week, the social media accounts of Floors Castle provided the following announcement:
We're delighted to announce that The Duke of Roxburghe and Miss Annabel Green were married this weekend at Floors Castle. We wish the happy couple all the happiness for their future together.

It is likely that the couple were married on Saturday, 11 September.

The Duke announced their engagement via a notice in The Telegraph on 30 January 2021:
The engagement was announced between the Duke of Roxburghe, eldest son of the late Duke of Roxburghe and of Lady Jane Dawnay, and Annabel, daughter of the late Mr Ian Green and of Mrs Patrick Quirk.

This is the second marriage for the duke. In 2011, when he was still Marquess of Bowmont and Cessford, Charles Innes-Kerr married his long-time girlfriend the Hon. Charlotte Susanna Aitken, daughter of Lord Beaverbrook. The wedding announcement placed in The Telegraph by the bride's father read as follows:

The marriage took place on Friday, July 22, at the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory, Warwick Street, London, between Charles, eldest son of the Duke of Roxburghe and Lady Jane Dawnay, and Charlotte, elder daughter of Lord and Lady Beaverbrook. Dom Edward Corbould officiated, assisted by the Rev Anthony Hogg.

The bride was attended by Isabel Sanderson, Iris Goldsmith, Emilia Methven, Frankie Goldsmith, Milo Methven and Ben Way. Mr Freddy Galliers-Pratt was best man.
Alas, the marriage ended in divorce a year later in 2012.

After a relationship of several years, in April 2016, Charles welcomed the birth of a daughter, Eugenie, with his partner Morvarid Sahafi, a fashion designer. Alas, the couple parted ways in 2019, which was the same year that Charles succeeded as 11th Duke of Roxburghe upon the death of his father Guy, who had been battling cancer.
