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 and her fiancé 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.
But...we will get to see Prince George and Princess Charlotte, as they will be a part of the wedding party--bridesmaid and pageboy! Yay!!!
800 people are expected to attend the wedding. The Dean of Windsor, David Conner will officiate. Andrea Bocelli will sing two pieces, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will perform.
The wedding can be viewed in America, Friday morning October 12th, on TLC starting at 4:25 a.m. ET and repeating at 7:25 a.m. ET.
