George and Amal Clooney were sup­posed to be guests at their sec­ond royal wed­ding of 2018, hav­ing fa­mously ap­peared at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wed­ding in May.

But ob­servers of all the celebrity guests fil­ing in to St. George’s Chapel at Wind­sor Cas­tle for Princess Eu­ge­nie’s wed­ding Fri­day no­ticed that the power cou­ple were con­spic­u­ously ab­sent.

It was widely ex­pected that the Clooneys would at­tend the wed­ding, given that the ac­tor knows groom Jack Brooks­bank well. Brooks­bank has been since 2016 the U.K. brand am­bas­sador for Casami­gos, the tequila com­pany Clooney co-founded with Cindy Craw­ford’s hus­band, Rande Ger­ber.

While Ger­ber and Clooney sold their tequila com­pany for $1 bil­lion in 2017, ac­cord­ing to Peo­ple, it’s be­lieved that Clooney and Brooks­bank have re­mained friends. There’s no word on why Clooney and his wife, an in­ter­na­tional hu­man-rights at­tor­ney, were ab­sent from Fri­day’s lav­ish royal event, where Eu­ge­nie, the daugh­ter of Prince An­drew and Sarah Fer­gu­son, tied the knot with Brooks­bank.

She wore a dress de­signed by Peter Pilotto and Christo­pher De Vos, and the Gre­ville Emer­ald Kokoshnik Tiara, lent to her by the queen.

But if the glam­orous Clooneys didn’t make it, there was plenty of other celebrity glam­our served up by the likes of Liv Tyler, Kate Moss, Naomi Camp­bell, a very preg­nant Pippa Mid­dle­ton and Prince Harry’s ex-girl­friends Chelsy Davy and Cres­sida Bonas.

Model and ac­tress Cara Delev­ingne prob­a­bly made the big­gest splash, fash­ion-wise, by es­chew­ing a dress and in­stead don­ning a women’s tuxedo and top hat.

The big­gest sur­prise guest was Demi Moore. The 55-year-old ac­tress joined the other guests in bat­tling strong winds as she headed into St. George’s Chapel.

She was dressed for the au­tumn weather in a ma­roon midi dress and match­ing fas­ci­na­tor. Peo­ple re­ports that Moore is a long­time friend of Eu­ge­nie’s par­ents.
