Rob­bie sings hit as roy­als and celebs dance til dawn

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Pa­trick Hill and Amy Coles

PRINCESS Eu­ge­nie and new hubby Jack Brooks­bank toasted their wed­ding by down­ing tequila shots and par­ty­ing with pals un­til 4am yes­ter­day.

And guests at the cou­ple’s black-tie din­ner were thrilled when Rob­bie Wil­liams took to the stage to sing his hit An­gels.

Ear­lier the X Fac­tor judge’s daugh­ter Teddy, six, had been a brides­maid as Eu­ge­nie, 28, and 32-year-old Jack, an exec for Casami­gos tequila, tied the knot.


The pair, who have re­leased four of­fi­cial pic­tures of their big day, showed no signs of slow­ing down last night as they threw their wed­ding party.

A source said: “They’re hav­ing the time of their lives. They’re both so in­cred­i­bly happy and want to en­joy their cel­e­bra­tions as much as pos­si­ble while sur­rounded by their loved ones and friends.

“It has been the most spe­cial week­end of their lives and they don’t want it to end.”

The new snaps in­cluded one in the white draw­ing room at Wind­sor Cas­tle, one of the new­ly­weds kiss­ing at the end of their car­riage pro­ces­sion and a photo with their bridal party, in­clud­ing Prince George, five, and Princess Char­lotte, three.

They were all taken by Bri­tish pho­tog­ra­pher Alex Bra­mall, who shot Eu­ge­nie for US fash­ion magazine Harper’s Bazaar.

Among the 500 guests at last night’s bash, at Eu­ge­nie’s par­ents’ es­tate Royal Lodge in­side Wind­sor Great Park, were model Kate Moss, 44, ac­tress Demi Moore, 55, and Rob­bie’s wife and X Fac­tor judge Ayda, 39. It was fair­ground-themed party and in­cluded a big wheel, dodgems and a carousel for guests, who were en­cour­aged to wear fancy dress.

There were nearly 200 VIPS at Fri­day night’s party in a lux­ury mar­quee on the same coun­try es­tate when Rob­bie sang in front of the likes of El­lie Gould­ing, 31, and co­me­dian Jimmy Carr, 46. They en­joyed mar­gar­i­tas and food was from caterer Ur­ban Caprice, which sup­plied wed­ding grub from its top restau­rants, in­clud­ing The Ivy and Scott’s. Our source said: “The evening party was in­cred­i­ble. There was cer­tainly no short­age of tequila and there were three dif­fer­ent types. “It was part celebrity party, part in­ter­na­tional so­ci­ety event. It was just amaz­ing and Eu­ge­nie looked in­cred­i­ble and so happy.”


The cou­ple’s first wed­ding re­cep­tion was on Fri­day af­ter­noon – hosted by her grand­mother the Queen at Wind­sor Cas­tle. But not every­one was im­pressed, with El­lie Gould­ing heard com­plain­ing to pals about the lack of grub. Stand­ing in her ho­tel lobby, she said: “I’m still hun­gry. The first re­cep­tion was just finger food.” Some have crit­i­cised the bill to tax­pay­ers of around £2.25mil­lion for polic­ing and stag­ing the event, watched by a TV au­di­ence of three mil­lion. Eu­ge­nie’s wed­ding dress was ru­moured to have cost over £150,000.
