She wows the wed­ding:


PRINCESS Eu­ge­nie fi­nally got her fairy­tale wed­ding yes­ter­day as she tied the knot with Jack Brooks­bank.

The ninth in line to the throne, 28, wed the tequila am­bas­sador, 32, in a star-stud­ded cer­e­mony at St Ge­orge’s Chapel in Wind­sor.

The event was more muted than Prince Harry and Meghan’s wed­ding in the same venue just five months ear­lier.

Celebrity pals among the 850 guests in­cluded The X Fac­tor stars Rob­bie Wil­liams and wife Ayda Field, ac­tress Demi Moore and mod­els Kate Moss, Cara Delev­ingne and Naomi Camp­bell.

Co­me­dian Jimmy Carr, Pixie Geldof, Chelsea Davy, Jamie Red­knapp, El­lie Gould­ing, Liv Tyler, James Blunt and Ricky Martin also watched.

They joined se­nior roy­als in­clud­ing Eu­ge­nie’s mum and dad Sarah Fer­gu­son and Prince An­drew, grand­mother the Queen, Prince Philip, William and Kate and Harry and Meghan.

Prince Ge­orge and Princess Char­lotte starred as page boy and brides­maid.

The new­ly­weds left the lav­ish cer­e­mony in a sil­ver As­ton Martin. The princess wore a white dress, with a faint scar show­ing the sign of her surgery to cor­rect her child­hood spinal curve con­di­tion sco­l­io­sis.

Richard Ba­con, a pal of the cou­ple, re­vealed af­ter­wards how the princess helped his wife deal with his re­cent ill­ness. He said: “I was in a coma. Eu­ge­nie wrote my wife sev­eral lovely emails.

“She un­der­stood it’s worse for peo­ple close to you when you’re ill than it is for your­self.”

He said Prince An­drew, “made a very lov­ing speech”. The for­mer Blue Peter host added: “It was mov­ing.”

Mean­while, the BBC made an em­bar­rass­ing gaffe af­ter a re­porter said “what a beau­ti­ful dress” – but the sub­ti­tles read “what a beau­ti­ful breasts”.

Royal fans went into over­drive spec­u­lat­ing that Meghan was preg­nant and hid­ing a baby bump. And Prince Ge­orge showed his cheeky side as he was caught pick­ing his nose on TV.

Dr An­thony Waller­steiner, the groom’s head­mas­ter from Stowe School, Bucks, said: “Jack’s speech was lovely. There were lots of tears.”
