Sealed with a kiss... Jack and Eu­ge­nie be­gin life as hus­band and wife af­ter dream Royal wed­ding

Roy­als and celebri­ties turn out for the big day

Belfast Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE - LINDY McDOW­ELL,

ROYAL bride Princess Eu­ge­nie shared two shy kisses with her new hus­band Jack Brooks­bank af­ter their lav­ish royal wed­ding cer­e­mony.

On the West Steps of St Ge­orge’s Chapel, new­ly­weds Eu­ge­nie and Jack beamed with de­light and waved to on­look­ers.

The cou­ple ten­ta­tively per­formed the kisses for the cam­eras on the steps, which were dec­o­rated with masses of au­tumn flow­ers and lined with Gre­nadier Guards in their dis­tinc­tive red tu­nics and bearskin hats.

Af­ter their af­ter­noon re­cep­tion in Wind­sor Cas­tle, Jack drove Eu­ge­nie away in a sil­ver DB10 As­ton Martin sports car.

They were head­ing to the York fam­ily home Royal Lodge in Wind­sor Great Park for the evening cel­e­bra­tions.

The Queen’s grand­daugh­ter, who is ninth in line to the throne, and tequila brand am­bas­sador Jack said their vows in front of a star-stud­ded con­gre­ga­tion of 800 peo­ple.

Watch­ing in the his­toric 15th-cen­tury chapel of the cas­tle were the monarch, the Duke of Ed­in­burgh and more than 40 mem­bers of the royal fam­ily in­clud­ing the Prince of Wales and the Dukes and Duchesses of Cam­bridge and Sus­sex.

Celebri­ties in­cluded Hol­ly­wood ac­tresses Liv Tyler (be­low right) and Demi Moore; su­per­mod­els Kate Moss and Naomi Camp­bell (right); singers Ricky Martin, El­lie Gould­ing and James Blunt; ac­tor Stephen Fry and artist Tracey Emin, as well as pop star Rob­bie Wil­liams and his wife Ayda Field.

Blus­tery con­di­tions led to some guests los­ing their hats as they ar­rived.

Eu­ge­nie’s so­phis­ti­cated dress, which fea­tured wide fold-over shoul­ders, a low back and full-flow­ing train, was by Peter Pilotto and Christo­pher De Vos.

The low-back fea­ture was specif­i­cally re­quested by Eu­ge­nie, who has scars af­ter surgery when she was 12 to cor­rect sco­l­io­sis.

Eu­ge­nie was also wear­ing the Gre­ville Emer­ald Kokoshnik Tiara loaned to her by the Queen.

Brides­maid Princess Char­lotte took a tum­ble as she ar­rived be­fore the cer­e­mony.

Ac­com­pa­nied by brother Prince Ge­orge (5) act­ing as page boy, the three year-old en­thu­si­as­ti­cally waved to the ador­ing crowds as they ap­proached the chapel. Char­lotte was not the only mem­ber of the young bridal party to strug­gle with the steps.

Page boy Louis de Givenchy also stum­bled as he en­tered the church. The gag­gle of young­sters in the bridal party had a few min­utes to wait be­fore the bride ar­rived, and were kept in check by the Cam­bridges’ nanny.

Ge­orge held his hand over his ear as trum­peters lined out at the back of the chapel to her­ald the ar­rival of Eu­ge­nie.

Meghan, dressed in a navy dress and coat by her wed­ding dress de­signer Givenchy, and Harry were re­turn­ing to the chapel just five months af­ter they pledged their love for one an­other in the same Wind­sor Cas­tle venue.

Eu­ge­nie and Jack left the chapel in the cov­ered horse­drawn Scot­tish State Coach for their short car­riage ride through the town.

Well-wish­ers gath­ered on Wind­sor High Street to catch a glimpse of the new­ly­weds. Emma Mc­Carthy (46) of Swin­don said of Eu­ge­nie: “She looked ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful.”

But Caro­line Lewis (50) from Cardiff ex­pressed dis­ap­point­ment she did not see any other roy­als.

“I did think they might have fol­lowed her around the block or some­thing,” she said.

Mother of the bride Sarah, Duchess of York, in a vi­brant green out­fit, was seated in the row in front of her for­mer fa­therin-law the Duke of Ed­in­burgh. It is the first time the pair are be­lieved to have been pic­tured to­gether for 26 years.

Maid of hon­our Princess Beatrice de­liv­ered a read­ing from F Scott Fitzger­ald’s The Great Gatsby.
