Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially married, the world is preparing for the next royal wedding – Princess Eugenie is getting married later this year.
Here’s what we know so far…
Who is Princess Eugenie marrying?
Eugenie, who is the Duke and Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew’s daughter, is set to marry Jack Brooksbank.
According to The Express, Jack is the son of George Brooksbank, a chartered accountant, and his wife Nicola.
Eugenie met Jack – the manager of swanky London nightclub Mahiki – while skiing in the Swiss resort of Verbier.
The pair have dated for over six years, managing to withstand the pressure of a long-distance relationship when Eugenie moved to New York a few years ago.
Where and when will Princess Eugenie’s wedding be held?
The Princess and her fiancé will actually be saying their vows at the same venue where Harry and Meghan married in May. The couple will be heading to St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle for their nuptials.
The site has seen many royal weddings over the years, including Prince Charles and Camilla’s blessing in 2005.
The pair will be saying ‘I do’ on 12 October this year. It’s thought that the timings for their wedding will follow Meghan and Harry’s closely, with the ceremony likely to start at midday.
Who will be attending Princess Eugenie’s wedding?
Of course, being the Queen’s granddaughter, the wedding will be attended by many members of the royal family. Although not confirmed, it’s likely that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, alongside the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will attend.
The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla are also sure to be there.
And of course, Eugenie’s sister, mother, and father will also be there to support Eugenie.
As the mother-of-the-bride, Sarah Ferguson will be playing an important role in the big day and the preparations ahead of time.
Grant Harold, former royal butler, explained that the Duchess will likely be very hands on with the process, and will have more involvement with the royal family than she has had in a long time.
What tiara will Princess Eugenie wear?
Ahead of Meghan and Harry’s wedding, there was much speculation over which royal tiara the bride would wear.
It’s tradition for each royal bride to choose a tiara from their family’s collection – with Meghan opting for Queen Mary’s Bandeau tiara.
So which one will Eugenie go for? Well, it looks as though hers will be much less of a mystery than Meghan’s. Reportedly, royal commentators are almost certain that the Princess will follow in her mother’s footsteps – choosing the York diamond tiara for her big day.
The York tiara was custom-made for Sarah Ferguson by jewellers Garrard, and was given to her as a gift from the Queen and Prince Philip.
What will Eugenie’s wedding dress be like?
First predictions for Princess Eugenie’s wedding gown suggest that the bride-to-be may opt for a dress from designer’s Erdem.
The ninth-in-line to the throne has long favoured dresses by the British designer. In fact, she even wore one of their designs to announce her engagement.
Others have predicted Ralph & Russo – a designer who was hotly tipped to be making Meghan Markle’s wedding dress.
We can’t wait for the big day!
