The British Army's Major General Alastair Bruce has married his partner of 20 years in Edinburgh.

Maj Gen Bruce, one of the service's most senior reservists, married Stephen Knott at St John's Episcopal Church on Saturday.

"This would not have been possible in [the] @BritishArmy I joined in 1979," Maj Gen Bruce said, confirming the news on Twitter.

"Attitudes change but love is constant."

Forces News was among those to wish the newly married couple congratulations, with British Army veteran and MP Tom Tugendhat also replying with good wishes.

"The very model of a modern major general! Congratulations to you both," he tweeted.

In June, Maj Gen Bruce was sworn in as the new Governor of Edinburgh Castle during a ceremony in Scotland where he was granted the ceremonial keys to the castle.
