It was a party fit for a princess: Princess Eugenie's two-day wedding reception took place over the weekend, and it sounds like it was a total hit.

Following her nuptials to Jack Brooksbank at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Friday, October 12, Princess Eugenie and her husband rode through the streets of Windsor in an elegant carriage to a lunch reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth with 800 of their wedding guests.

The lunchtime reception took place at Waterloo Chamber, the Grand Reception Room and St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle - just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. Some of the guests at the reception included Prince Charles, Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Harry and Meghan, who dined on the finger food-style meal which included mini bites of beef in Yorkshire pudding and Scotch eggs. They also reportedly drank Pol Roger champagne.

Both Prince Andrew, Duke of York and the groom gave speeches during the reception. Andrew had a little fun at his new son-in-law’s expense and made the crowd laugh during his speech.

“The Duke told a story about their dog Jack [a Norfolk terrier],” a source told People. “One day, I think it was early in the relationship, he shouted, ‘Jack, get off the chair!’ And the dog didn’t move. But Jack did!”

Meanwhile, Jack thanked everyone for coming out to the wedding. "He did what grooms do!” the guest adds.


At the evening reception, Robbie Williams, whose 6-year-old daughter Theodora served as one of Eugenie's bridesmaids during the ceremony, serenaded the guests with his hit song “Angels” and other pop songs “from different artists that the crowd sang along to,” a source at the reception told People.

Additionally, a gourmet pizza truck provided pizzas and other food for guests to enjoy. Casamigos, George Clooney and Rande Gerber's tequila brand, provided margaritas for the guests. The groom was a brand manager for the tequila brand before the company was sold for $1 billion last year.
