She is, however, best known for her starring role in the famous American epic romantic, disaster movie, Titanic which came to the public in 1997. The movie not only gained her the fame she currently enjoys, but it also earned her a good number of awards including best director, best picture and even a nomination for a second Academy Award for best actress. Kate also starred in the modern interpretation of the Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure and in Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet.

Who Is Ned Rocknroll?

The news broke about Ned Rocknroll and Kate Winslet marriage in New York, in December 2012 and it was welcomed with mixed feelings. The wedding was kept so secret that even a good number of the couple’s relatives, including their parents and siblings, were not aware. Here are some facts to know about the couple.

How they met

Ned Rocknroll and Winslet met for the first time after Winslet helped his uncle’s 90-year-old mother out of their inflamed multi-million dollar building on Necker Island. Since then, she became friends with Ned’s famous family. That same weekend, she met Rocknroll and after dating for a few months, they tied the nuptial knot in a converted barn. The two were, however, spotted together for the first time at Branson’s father’s memorial service in London in September.

The wedding was attended by a few people

Ned and Kate chose to make their wedding a very private one with just six persons from each side in attendance. The parents of both the bride and the groom were absent, but Kate’s children from her previous marriages, Mia and Joe, were there while her Hollywood superstar friend Leonardo DiCaprio gave her away in marriage. Ned’s brother Jack, stood as his best man.

Their wedding ring

One of the most fascinating things about Kate’s secret marriage to Ned was their £250,000 platinum bands which according to some sources, were decorated with diamonds. Kate’s net worth is estimated at $35 million and Ned’s, even though is not yet specified, is expected to be quite attractive considering his famed lineage. The wedding rings Ned and Kate shared were reportedly made by a British jeweller Charles Goode, of the famous Goode and Son, who is a friend of the couple and who designed Zara Phillips’s engagement ring.

It’s not the first time they are getting married

Kate’s secret marriage to Ned Rockenroll was not her first. She was first married to Jim Threapleton, a film director whom she met on the set of Hideous Kinky. The two got married in late 1998 and had a daughter named Mia, before they divorced in December 2001. Her second marriage was to an English film and stage director Sam Mendes in 2003 and together, they had a son named Joe. Kate’s love life, however, started when she was 16 years old and it was with co-actor and writer Stephen Tredre who died of bone cancer.

Ned, on the other hand, is in his second marriage after his marriage with Eliza Pearson, the daughter of aristocrat Viscount Cowdray collapsed. But, there are no records of any child between them. Ned knew Eliza when she was just 18 years of age and he proposed to her two years later during a camping holiday in Cornwall.
