Princess Eugenie, cousin to Prince William and Prince Harry, finally tied the knot to longtime boyfriend (and now husband), Jack Brooksbank. Here’s everything you need to know about their nuptials.
It took place on October 12, 2018.
The couple celebrated with a (quite windy) fall wedding, aptly decorated with autumnal floral schemes. Back in February, Prince Andrew, Duke of York (Eugenie’s father) revealed the exact date of the ceremony.
It was in the same venue as Harry and Meghan’s wedding.
Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie said their vows at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, the same place where Prince Harry and Markle are tied the knot on May 19.
Most people may associate royal weddings with Westminster Abbey, but St. George’s Chapel has been hosting its own I do’s since King Edward VII married Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863.
More recently, it was the venue for Peter Philipps (Eugenie’s cousin) and Autumn Kelly’s wedding in 2008, Prince Edward (Eugenie’s uncle) and Sophie Rhys-Jones’ wedding in 1999, and Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles’ marriage blessing in 2005. (They were actually married in a civil ceremony, followed by a blessing at the chapel.)

But the couple invited more guests than Harry and Meghan did.
Eugenie and Jack have reportedly invited over 850 people to the wedding ceremony at St. George’s Chapel, while Harry and Meghan only invited about 600, royal expert and biographer Katie Nicholl writes for Vanity Fair. The seats were rearranged to face inward so guests look straight ahead to the aisle.
Princess Charlotte was a bridesmaid and Prince George was a page boy.
Princess Eugenie selected Princess Charlotte, 3, as one of her bridesmaids and Prince George, 5, to be a page boy for her nuptials. Their cousins Mia Tindall, 4, Isla Philips, 6, Savannah Philips, 7, were also bridesmaids.
Other bridesmaids included Theordora Rose Williams, 6, daughter of singer Robbie Williams, who is a friend of the couple; and Maud Windsor, 5, daughter of Lord and Lady Frederick Windsor.
Louis de Givenchy, son of JP Morgan exec Olivier de Givenchy, was a page boy with Prince George. (He unfortunately fell while entering the chapel.)
