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.)

Princess Beatrice was her maid of honor.

Eugenie’s older sister and only sibling Princess Beatrice was her right hand on her big day. She arrived to the ceremony with their mother, Sarah Ferguson, wearing an indigo dress by Ralph & Russo, with a matching headband and taupe pumps. She delivered a reading from The Great Gatsby during the ceremony.

And she helped her sister fit her the whole train of her wedding dress into the car before the couple exited the lunchtime reception.

1,200 members of the public were invited.

Over a thousand lucky guests were selected to experience the festivities from Windsor Castle grounds. They were able to witness the guest arrivals, listen to a live broadcast of the ceremony, and watch up-close as the couple stepped out for their first appearance as newlyweds.

There were also representatives from charities the couple supports, students from local schools, Windsor Castle residents, and members of Royal Household staff present.

There was a carriage ride.

Like Harry and Meghan, Eugenie and Jack embarked on a carriage ride through the town of Windsor after their wedding ceremony.

“The newly married couple will then undertake a short carriage procession through part of Windsor High Street. The carriage will process through the grounds of Windsor Castle, departing via Castle Hill to proceed along part of the High Street before returning to the Castle via Cambridge Gate,” Buckingham Palace previously announced.

The couple rode in a covered carriage, as opposed to Harry and Meghan’s open Ascot Landau.

The evening reception is at Royal Lodge.

The afterparty will take place at this royal residence in Windsor, according to Vanity Fair. The Queen is hosting the soirée for her granddaughter, but Eugenie’s parents Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew are also reportedly helping to plan the celebration.

“The plan is for a marquee to be set up in the grounds and dancing late into the night. Eugenie and Jack are planning the whole thing, but Sarah and Andrew are very involved. Sarah is bringing a very eclectic and exciting guest list to Windsor,” royal expert Katie Nicholl wrote for VF.

The venue was first built in 1662, renovated in the 1830s, and was refurbished again in the 2000s after the Yorks moved in, Express reports. Read more about Eugenie’s wedding reception venue here.

There’ll be two days of partying.

On Saturday, October 13, the couple is expected to continue the nuptial celebrations with a festival-style party.

“There will be dodgems and funfair rides, coconut shies, lots of food stalls, loads of cocktails, bloody Marys for the hangovers and a festival vibe,” a source told

The Times (per Entertainment Tonight).

Eugenie’s engagement ring is a stunning pink sapphire.

The ring features a pink padparadscha sapphire surrounded by smaller diamonds on a yellow gold band. She and Brooksbank apparently worked together to design the ring of gems surrounding the rosy center stone.

It also looks a lot like the ring her father, Prince Andrew, gave to her mother, Sarah Ferguson, in 1986.

Her wedding ring is a thin gold band.

It’s made of Welsh gold, which has been used on royal wedding rings since the Queen Mother’s wedding in 1923, per People. Brooksbank did not receive and will not wear a wedding ring, but that isn’t uncommon amongst royal husbands. Prince William, for example, doesn’t wear one.

Brooksbank proposed in Nicaragua (without the ring).

Brooksbank popped the question to Eugenie in early January 2018 during a scenic trip to Nicaragua.

“We had a beautiful volcano, [the] sun was setting, birds were flying,” he told BBC in a joint interview with his fiancée.

“The light was just a special light that I’ve never seen,” Eugenie added. “I actually said, ‘This is an incredible moment,’ and then he popped the question.”

But Jack didn’t have the ring on him when he got down on one knee. “I found a ring in a jeweler’s, and then proposed to Eugenie without it,” he said, because he wanted to make sure she’d approve of the design.

The couple has been together for seven years and counting.

“We met when I was 20 and Jack was 24 and fell in love,” the princess said during the interview. She first met Brooksbank, the former manager of Mayfari’s Mahiki nightclub, during a ski trip to Verbier, Switzerland. She later revealed that it was “love at first sight” when she met her now-husband.

Eugenie wanted her wedding to be plastic-free.

The bride-to-be revealed in a recent interview: “My whole house is anti-plastic now – and Jack and I want our wedding to be like that as well.” But it’s yet to be announced if such accommodations are being made at St. George’s Chapel and the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
