Princess Eugenie, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, marries in 2nd royal wedding of the year
Celebrities joined British royalty at Windsor Castle today for the second big royal wedding of the year, with Princess Eugenie, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, 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 to the west of London.

Windsor Castle was also the venue for Harry and Meghan's wedding 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 have been invited into 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 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.

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.

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

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

WINDSOR, England — Princess Eugenie married tequila executive Jack Brooksbank in a star-studded royal wedding Friday at St. Georges Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

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.

Holding their hats, guests celebrate next big royal wedding

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.

Britain will have its second royal wedding of the year when Princess Eugenie weds a tequila brand executive in a gala ceremony on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

As Eugenie — ninth-in-line to the throne — 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 are only paying for the wedding itself.

Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip attended the wedding, along with Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry and other senior royals.

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

Princess Eugenie has married tequila executive Jack Brooksbank in a solemn ceremony at St. Georges Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

"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.

It was the same setting as Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as the couple are now known, were among the star-studded congregation.

There will be a few more people than most people have, there are a few more than Harry had, but thats just the nature of Eugenie and Jack – theyve got so many friends that they need a church of that size to fit them all in, he told This Morning which broadcast the event live.

The 92-year-old queen and her husband Philip, 97, who has retired from official engagements, were joined by other royals and celebrities including Hollywood stars Liv Tyler and Demi Moore, models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and singer Ellie Goulding.

Female guests had to cling on to their hats as a blustery wind threatened their wedding outfits and a page boy tripped on the stairs walking into the chapel.

Queen Elizabeths granddaughter Princess Eugenie married wine merchant Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle on Friday in front of celebrities and Britains senior royals including Prince Harry and wife Meghan who wed at the same venue in May.

“I’m a true royalist,” David Weeks, 77, bedecked in a Union Jack suit and bowler hat, told Reuters. “I was here for the queen’s 90th birthday. I was here for Harry and Meghan’s wedding, I wouldn’t miss it, I love the atmosphere.”

The ceremony was conducted by the Dean of Windsor David Conner, and Eugenie‘s elder sister, Princess Beatrice, the maid of honor, read an extract from the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel “The Great Gatsby” which the bride had read after meeting her future husband in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier in 2010.

“One particular passage in which Jay Gatsby is described reminded her immediately of Jack,” Conner said. “She decided she wanted eventually to let Jack know how much those words had brought him to mind.”

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.

Eugenie is a director at London’s Hauser & Wirth art gallery, and Brooksbank owns a wine wholesale business and is European brand manager for Casamigos Tequila, which was co-founded by U.S. actor George Clooney.

Security around Windsor was tight, with airport-style security checks and large numbers of police. As Eugenie does not carry out official royal duties, republicans have said it is wrong that the estimated 2 million pound ($2.6 million) security bill will be paid by taxpayers.

Writing in the Times newspaper, commentator Matthew Bell said the grandeur of the wedding showed Prince Andrew’s desire to cement his family’s royal status.

Here Is What The Pageboys And Bridesmaids Looked Like At Princess Eugenies Wedding

“When it is all over, Eugenie will continue to live with an identity experienced by a tiny minority: as a fully fledged princess, gawped at, envied and scrutinized by all,” Bell wrote.

“Yet as the years roll by, and her royal status diminishes, as a peripheral figure of almost no consequence at all.”
