Princess Eugenie, 28, will wed Jack Brooksbank, 31, in a lavish ceremony in Windsor Castle this coming October.
And now further details of the day have been confirmed. From the location to the star-studded guest list, here’s everything we know so far about Eugenie and Jack’s upcoming royal wedding!
Eugenie and Jack’s big day will take place this Fall on Oct. 12, 2018.
The couple will exchange “I dos” in front of their family and friends at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, which also happens to be the same venue where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married in May.
The Guest List
Given the fact that a handful of Eugenie’s friends are celebrities, it’s possible that the royal wedding will be a star-studded affair. Everyone from Ellie Goulding to Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis to the Beckhams will likely be present at the wedding. The couple will also follow in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s footsteps by inviting members of the public to their big day. The royal family revealed that Eugenie and Jack have decided to invite 1,200 members of the public, who will be able to “view the arrival of the congregation and members of the Royal Family, listen to a live broadcast of the marriage service, and watch the start of the procession as the couple depart at the end of the wedding ceremony.”
It’s being reported that Eugenie will reportedly follow in her mother Sarah Ferguson’s footsteps and wear the York tiara on her special day. Sarah first sported the tiara when she married Prince Andrew back in 1986.
While Eugenie has yet to say “yes” to the dress, during a recent interview with BBC’s The One Show with Matt Baker, Eugenie revealed that her dress will not have “meringue shoulders [because] that’s a bit unfashionable.”
After their church ceremony, Eugenie and Jack will take part in a short carriage procession through part of Windsor High Street. The carriage will depart via Castle Hill and proceed along part of the High Street before returning to the castle via Cambridge Gate. The Princess’ engagement was announced in January via the palace. Jack and Eugenie also appeared on The One Show, where they opened up about the proposal in Nicaragua.
Eugenie revealed that it was an “incredible moment” when her partner of seven years asked her to be his wife, and that she “cried” when he proposed. She said: “The lake was so beautiful, it was a special light and I even said, ‘This is an incredible moment’ and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we had been together seven years. It was the perfect moment because we knew it was going to end up this way.” She added: “I was over the moon, crying.”
