With just days to go until Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle, excitement about the royal wedding has reached boiling point. However, there’s more than one royal wedding this year, with Princess Eugenie set to marry partner of seven years Jack Brooksbank on October 12.
And while both couples are using the same venue – St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle – the weddings are expected to be vastly different. Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said that Princess Eugenie’s wedding will be less publicised and smaller than Prince Harry’s, telling Express that: “In total contrast, the wedding between Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will be a charming affair but low key with little public interest and there will be considerably less fascination in the media.”
Princess Eugenie’s dress will also differ in both style and grandeur, commentators say. While Meghan Markle is thought to be wearing something romantic – possibly by Ralph & Russo – Princess Eugenie is expected to show her creative flair in her choice of gown.
“Princess Eugenie has shown us all over the last few years that she knows her own sense of fashion and is not afraid of colour and bold shapes”, says fashion expert Kate Beavis. “I think we will see something more contemporary and fashion-forward than Kate and Meghan’s dress choices.”
