Celebri­ties were out in force for the wed­ding of Princess Eu­ge­nie yes­ter­day


HOL­LY­WOOD roy­alty joined English roy­alty to cel­e­brate the wed­ding of Princess Eu­ge­nie and Jack Brooks­bank yes­ter­day, with hun­dreds of star-stud­ded guests fill­ing St Ge­orge’s Chapel in Wind­sor.

Guests bat­tled with strong winds as they started ar­riv­ing 2½ hours be­fore the ser­vice, with many hav­ing to hold on to their hats and tame their hair and out­fits.

Prince Harry and Meghan did not walk through the crowd when they ar­rived and were quickly ush­ered into the cas­tle, so as to not draw at­ten­tion to them­selves.

Meghan chose a chic navy coat and dress by Givenchy, the de­signer of her wed­ding dress, and hat by Noel Ste­wart, while Harry wore a clas­sic suit.

Cather­ine, the Duchess of Cam­bridge, wore a rasp­berry Alexan­der McQueen dress and a hat by Philip Treacy, with Prince Wil­liam also sport­ing a dark suit.

The Queen wore an ice blue cash­mere coat with large gold and di­a­mond but­tons and a match­ing peach scal­loped dress by one of her favourite de­sign­ers, An­gela Kelly.

Prince Philip, Duke of Ed­in­burgh, wore a clas­sic black suit.

Maid of Hon­our and sis­ter Princess Beatrice ar­rived in a royal blue dress by Ralph and Russo and pur­ple head­band by Sarah Cant, with mother Sarah Fer­gu­son in the same car.

Hol­ly­wood heart­throb Ge­orge Clooney was ex­pected, as he was a part-owner of the Casami­gos Tequila for which Jack is an am­bas­sador. How­ever nei­ther he nor wife Amal at­tended. Amal was in­stead sched­uled to speak at a con­fer­ence in the US.

Camilla, the Duchess of Corn­wall, snubbed the wed­ding for prior com­mit­ments in Scot­land, reignit­ing ru­mours her rift with Prince Andrew has not sim­mered down.

How­ever, her hus­band Prince Charles ar­rived in a sig­na­ture grey suit.

English model Pixie Geldof ar­rived early with drum­mer Ge­orge Bar­nett.

Prince Harry’s for­mer girl­friend Chelsy Davy wore a navy lace dress and match­ing fas­ci­na­tor – the same colour she wore to Prince Harry and Meghan’s wed­ding in May.

Lady Melissa Percy ar­rived with Ms Davy, in a baby blue jump­suit, match­ing hat and furry clutch.

Au­tum­nal colours ap­peared to be a favourite among guests, with Amer­i­can ac­tress Demi Moore opt­ing for a ma­roon dress.

Ac­tress Liv Tyler chose a struc­tured navy blazer and match­ing skirt ensem­ble.

Su­per­model Naomi Camp­bell looked un­sur­pris­ingly dra­matic in a feath­ered black and white tweed dress and match­ing jacket look by Ralph and Russo.

She paired this with black leather gloves and a large fas­ci­na­tor de­spite the gusty winds.

Rob­bie Wil­liams ar­rived hold­ing hands with his wife Ayda and mother Janet Wil­liam in a three-piece suit in­clud­ing a black jacket, grey vest, sil­ver tie and white shirt.

Ayda wore a metal­lic cham­pagne dress with match­ing jacket and fas­ci­na­tor while Gwen’s blue hat, which matched her dress, blew off in the wind.

Prop­erty de­vel­oper Nick Candy and wife Holly Candy, the singer for­merly known as Holly Valance, were among celebrity guests.

For­mer foot­baller Jamie Red­knapp was dressed in a morn­ing suit as was singer­song­writer James Blunt.

Su­per­model Kate Moss sported a white navy polka dot ensem­ble and navy fas­ci­na­tor while model Cara Delev­ingne wore a pedal pusher trouser suit and a top hat.

Comic and ac­tor Stephen Fry chose a brightly coloured waist­coat with his morn­ing suit.
