Clooneys are no-shows at latest royal wedding, but Demi Moore attends
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.
