Princess Eugenie's Royal Wedding

Princess Eugenie Victoria Helena, HRH Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank, a British wine merchant and socialite will be married October 12, 2018 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.  Of course, this was the chapel where Prince Harry married Meghan Markle earlier this year.

Princess Eugenie is ninth in the line of succession to the throne, so this will be a "Royal Wedding Light."  All the same, it will be a royal wedding.  Yay!!!  The Princess will be "dressed in a couture gown and waving from a horse-drawn carriage as trumpets sound and red-coated calvary march to and fro."  After her wedding, Princess Eugenie will be known as HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs. Jack Brooksbank.

Princess Eugenie is the daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.  I remember watching their wedding in 1986.  Even though they divorced in 1996, they are still together today.  The couple reportedly live together at the Royal Lodge at Windsor and have a ski lodge in the posh Swiss resort of Verbier.  There is definitely a riff between Sarah and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.  He has never forgiven her for the scandal she caused back in the 90's.             .

Sarah and Prince Andrew are often seen at public gatherings, but she has never been fully welcomed back into the royal fold.

Princess Eugenie chose her sister Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary to be her maid of honor.

Which royal will not be attending the wedding?  Camilla.  She has a previous engagement. Okay.

Camilla and Andrew do not get on. Camilla has an engagement at the Craithie primary school near Balmoral which the school expected to be cancelled after the announcement of the wedding.
If Camilla had been a lower royal her absence would not have been so obvious.

Sarah's gown was and still is one of my favourite royal wedding gowns. She looked absolutely beautiful that day.

No one does a wedding like the British Royal Family. I have set my DVR for 4:30 am on Friday. Can't wait to see the bride in her wedding gown! I hope all those young members of the wedding party will behave themselves.
As the above post states, Sarah Ferguson did look beautiful on her wedding day.

I hope she has a wonderful day! Here in England, we will be overwhelmed with photos of the event. I'm sure next week's issue of HELLO will be nothing but royal wedding pictures.
