Princess Eugenie Marries Jack Brooksbank In Fairytale Wedding in Windsor, England

Princess Eugenie Marries Jack Brooksbank In Fairytale Wedding in Windsor, England

Following their wedding at Windsor Castle, the newlyweds attended a private evening dinner reception at Royal Lodge, where Eugenie changed into her second gown for the night.

Britain's Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank leave St George's Chapel after their wedding at Windsor Castle, near London, England, Friday.

Eugenie was reportedly introduced to the former Take That singer by her mother the Duchess of York on a Caribbean holiday in 2011.

Writing in the Times newspaper, commentator Matthew Bell said the grandeur of the wedding showed Prince Andrew's desire to cement his family's royal status.

Future king Prince George is looking at the camera with a wide grin next to his sister Princess Charlotte, who is dangling her legs with her feet crossed.

It was a far cry from the brilliant white Stella McCartney number that the Duchess of Sussex wore for her evening reception at Frogmore House back in May.

The royal wedding guest used her first Instagram post to thank her friend and British designer Stella McCartney for creating her royal ensemble for Eugenie's big day. "Her Majesty has worn them as both hair slides and brooches".

Yesterday it emerged that long before the Duke of York walked his daughter down the aisle at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, on Friday, there was concern at Buckingham Palace about public reaction to the unusual extravagance of the two-day event. Soon after, she told Oprah Winfrey, "It was so hard, because I wanted to be there with my girls, and to be getting them dressed and to go as a family".

Have you ever given a wedding speech? I felt so attractive, so comfortable.

Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip attended the wedding, along with Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry and other senior royals.

It was the same setting as the lavish wedding in May of Prince Harry and his American actress wife Meghan.

Is there bad blood brewing in the British royal family?

The Duke of York was said to have given a traditional father-of-the-bride speech, and reportedly teased Jack with a joke about the family dog before embracing his new son-in-law.

"But it's a lovely way to honour the people who looked after me, and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this".
