The second Royal Wedding of 2018 is just weeks away. These are all the details we know so far, including the date, bridesmaids details, guests attending and more.
When is Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding?
Eugenie and Jack are tying the knot on 12 October 2018 after seven years together.
Where is the ceremony taking place?
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding is taking place at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor - the same venue Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married in earlier this year. The chapel has played host to plenty of royal weddings in the past - including the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, and five of Queen Victoria’s children.
Tell me about the engagement…
Jack proposed to Eugenie while they were on holiday in Nicaragua in January 2017. The palace made the announcement via Twitter on January 22, confirming the couple were officially engaged and that Princess Eugenie’s parents, the Duke of York and former wife Sarah, Duchess of York, were ‘delighted’ at the news.
And the ring?
A beautiful pink and orange-hued oval padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds. The ring has reminded a few people of the engagement ring Eugenie’s father proposed to her mother with.
What is the wedding guest list looking like?
Naturally, all key members of the Royal Family are expected to be there. Buckingham Palace did announce this summer that the couple were inviting 1,200 members of the public to ‘inside the precincts of Windsor Castle’ and anyone interested had to apply via a public ballot.
Who will be Princess Eugenie’s bridesmaids, pageboys and flowergirls?
While there’s been no formal announcement about Eugenie’s bridal party, the bride-to-be did reportedly confirm that her sister Princess Beatrice would be her maid of honour in an interview with British Vogue. And we’re expecting (and hoping) that we’ll see a reappearance of Prince George and Princess Charlotte as pageboy and flowergirl, roles they’re well versed in now after both Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry’s weddings.
What will design Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress?
Of course, there’s been a lot of speculation regarding Eugenie’s wedding dress. She did say in an interview with British Vogue, “I'm not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer. [The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I'd be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I've been pretty on top of it." Designers in the running include Erdem, Vivienne Westwood and Ralph & Russo, all labels the young royal is a fan of.
Will Eugenie wear a tiara?
Like most royal brides, Princess Eugenie is likely to wear a tiara on her wedding day. It will mark the first time the royal has been pictured in regal headgear since, according to etiquette, tiaras are only reserved for married women. Eugenie is expected to wear the York tiara, a family heirloom first worn by Sarah, the Duchess of York on her wedding day in 1986. It was custom-made by Garrard and a gift from the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
Will the wedding be televised?
The palace has not confirmed whether the wedding will be aired or not. It is expected that it won’t be, since it is not a state wedding.
