Celebrities Attend Princess Eugenies Royal Wedding To Jack Brooksbank
Celebrities joined British royalty at Windsor Castle today for the second big royal wedding of the year, with Princess Eugenie, granddaughter of the Queen, following her cousin Prince Harry down the aisle.

Eugenie, 28, younger daughter of the Queen's third child, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, married Jack Brooksbank, 32, at the monarch's home west of London.

The 28-year-old bride, a granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, is ninth in line to the British throne. She wore a long-sleeved gown with a fitted top, a peplum and a long train by British-based designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos and a diamond-and-emerald tiara loaned to her by the queen.

Windsor Castle was also the venue for the wedding of Harry and Meghan Markle in May, and Eugenie, ninth in line to the throne, has copied much of her cousin's blueprint for her big day.

There were occasional blue skies on a generally cloudy, gusty day as the royal standard flew atop the Windsor Castle complex, indicating the queen was in residence. The strong winds forced many women to hold on to their elaborate hats as they approached the chapel.

The ceremony took place at the castle's 15th-century St. George's Chapel with the Dean of Windsor David Conner officiating. Charity guests and 1,200 members of the public were invited onto the grounds for the occasion.

Eugenies dress was cut in a deep V in the front and the back, a feature requested by the bride that revealed a vertical scar from her surgery at age 12 to correct scoliosis. She has said previously its important for people to show their scars.

One noticeable absentee was Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, the wife of heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, as she was carrying out an engagement in Scotland.

While Harry's wedding featured a fiery sermon from a U.S. Episcopalian bishop and a gospel choir, Eugenie's was more traditional with a performance by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli and the address given by Conner.

Watch the arrival of some of the celebrity guests, including actress Liv Tyler and model Naomi Campbell:

The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, attended the wedding, along with other senior royals, including Prince Charles; Prince William and his wife Kate, the duchess of Cambridge; and Prince Harry with Meghan, the duchess of Sussex.

Her elder sister Princess Beatrice, the maid of honour, delivered one of the readings, an extract from The Great Gatsby.

Several celebrities were among the guests — including singer Robbie Williams, actress Liv Tyler, models Naomi Campbell and Cara Delevingne, actress Demi Moore, television presenter Stephen Fry, and singers James Blunt and Ellie Goulding.

William and Kates 5-year-old son, Prince George, served as a page boy, and their daughter, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, was one of six bridesmaids. There was no sign of 5-month-old Prince Louis, William and Kates youngest child.

Princess Charlotte, 3, daughter of Harry's elder brother, Prince William, and his wife, Kate, was a bridesmaid while her brother, Prince George, 5, was a page boy.

After the service, the couple was to embark on an open-top carriage tour of Windsor, although shorter than the one Harry and Meghan, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, took when thousands lined the streets of the town.

Eugenie, a director at London's Hauser & Wirth art gallery, and Brooksbank, who is European brand manager for Casamigos Tequila, which was co-founded by U.S. actor George Clooney, met in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier in 2010.

The A-list guests included Hollywood stars Demi Moore and Liv Tyler, fashion luminaries Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell and pop singer Robbie Williams, whose daughter was a bridesmaid.

As Eugenie does not carry out official royal duties, republicans and some newspapers have said it is wrong that the security bill for the event will be paid for by taxpayers because the Royal Family is only paying for the wedding itself.

But local council deputy leader Phillip Bicknell was relishing the prospect of another big royal draw.

"Its nerve-wracking and a bit scary and all the things that come with getting married, but at the end of the day you get to marry the person you love," she said.

"The monarch and her family are part of the shop window for Great Britain, and at the end of the day anything that goes on that creates people wanting to come to this part of the world — come and see what goes on in Windsor — we're very happy for that," he said.

Eugenies sister, Princess Beatrice, served as maid of honour — she read a selection from F. Scott Fitzgeralds "The Great Gatsby" during the service.

"The Royal Family paid for the service itself, but the British taxpayer is expected to pick up the £2-million ($3.5 Cdn) tab for the security and cleanup after the service," said CBC's Thomas Daigle, reporting from Windsor.

The brides parents left the chapel together smiling as the newlyweds embarked on a horse-drawn carriage ride through parts of Windsor.

The anti-monarchy group Republic has presented to Labour MP Emma Dent Coad the results of an online petition with nearly 50,000 signatures. It calls on the U.K. government to commit no public money to the wedding and to publish a report of all costs to taxpayers.

"I support this petition, apart from those who first signed it," Coad said in an interview this week outside the U.K. Parliament.

The queen hosted a champagne luncheon for the guests just after the ceremony, with a second reception planned for the evening.

"To me, it's unconscionable that a minor member of the Royal Family who doesn't even have a role is having her dream wedding subsidized when in the same borough which she's moving into, in Kensington, we have food banks. We have people literally starving," she said. 

To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.
