Royal wedding: Princess Eugenie marries Jack Brooksbank

Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank were married today at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in Windsor, England.

The bride wore an ivory satin gown by London-based label Peter Pilotto. It had a cold-shoulder neckline, long sleeves, and a sweeping train. She went without a veil, instead opting for an emerald-encrusted tiara borrowed from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. Her matching emerald drop earrings were made for her as a gift from her Brooksbank.

The wedding drew familiar royals, including Prince William and Kate Middleton, who wore a deep pink dress with three-quarter sleeves by one of her favorite designers, Alexander McQueen. Her monochromatic ensemble featured a matching fascinator, burgundy heels, and a clutch.

Kate’s sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, arrived in a chic, navy midi dress by Givenchy, the label that designed the gown for her wedding to Prince Harry, who also attended. Her matching topper was by milliner Noel Stewart. She also kept her look to a single hue, with matching heels and clutch.

Other royals at the ceremony included the Queen and Prince Philip; the bride’s sister and maid of honor, Princess Beatrice; and their parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson. Eugenie’s bridesmaids included members of the royal family, while the groom’s brother, Thomas Brooksbank, served as best man. Two of Prince William and Kate’s three children were also in the bridal party: Princess Charlotte, 3, was one of six bridesmaids, and Prince George, 5, was a pageboy.

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and wife of Prince Charles, appeared to be the only member of the family not at the event. She had a prior commitment to visit school children in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
