New­est royal cou­ple share kiss on wed­ding day at Wind­sor.

Eu­ge­nie ties the knot with tequila brand am­bas­sador Jack Brooks­bank

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - PA.

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, the new­ly­weds beamed with de­light and waved to on­look­ers.

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

The Queen’s grand­daugh­ter Eu­ge­nie, 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 Wind­sor Cas­tle were the monarch, the Duke of Ed­in­burgh and more than 40 mem­bers of the royal fam­ily in­clud­ing the Prince of Wales, the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sus­sex.

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.

Mother-of-the-bride Sarah, Duchess of York, in a vi­brant green out­fit, was seated in the row in front of her for­mer fa­ther-in-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 Great Gatsby, with some on so­cial me­dia ques­tion­ing the use of the ex­cerpt from the tragic tale about con­man Jay Gatsby.

Celebri­ties in at­ten­dance in­cluded Hol­ly­wood ac­tresses Liv Tyler and Demi Moore, su­per­mod­els Kate Moss and Naomi Camp­bell, 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 her grand­mother, the Queen.

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

Ac­com­pa­nied by brother Prince Ge­orge, five, 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 as page boy Louis de Givenchy also stum­bled when he en­tered the church.

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

Eu­ge­nie and Jack left the chapel in the cov­ered horse-drawn 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 and very, very happy.”
