Princess Eu­ge­nie weds her beau at Wind­sor Cas­tle

The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - LOCALNEWS -

WIND­SOR, ENG­LAND >> Bri­tain’s Princess Eu­ge­nie mar­ried tequila ex­ec­u­tive Jack Brooks­bank in a starstud­ded royal wed­ding Fri­day at St. Ge­orge’s Chapel on the grounds of Wind­sor Cas­tle.

The 28-year-old bride, a grand­daugh­ter of Queen El­iz­a­beth II, is ninth in line to the Bri­tish throne. She wore a long-sleeved gown with a fit­ted top, a pe­plum and a long train by Bri­tish-based de­sign­ers Peter Pilotto and Christo­pher De Vos and a di­a­mond-and-emer­ald tiara loaned to her by the queen.

The queen and her hus­band, Prince Philip, at­tended the wed­ding, along with other se­nior roy­als, in­clud­ing Prince Charles; Prince William and his wife Kate, the duchess of Cam­bridge; and Prince Harry with Meghan, the duchess of Sus­sex.

There had been doubts about whether the 97-year-old Philip would be well enough to at­tend, but he seemed to be in good form dur­ing a rare pub­lic ap­pear­ance. Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla, missed the wed­ding be­cause of other com­mit­ments.

Eu­ge­nie’s sis­ter, Princess Beatrice, served as maid of honor — she read a se­lec­tion from F. Scott Fitzger­ald’s “The Great Gatsby” dur­ing the ser­vice.

They are the daugh­ters of Prince An­drew and Sarah Fer­gu­son, who are di­vorced but en­joy an am­i­ca­ble re­la­tion­ship.

The A-list guests in­cluded Hol­ly­wood stars Demi Moore and Liv Tyler, fash­ion lu­mi­nar­ies Kate Moss, Cara Delev­ingne and Naomi Camp­bell and pop singer Rob­bie Wil­liams, whose daugh­ter was a brides­maid.

Eu­ge­nie’s dress was cut in a deep V in the front and the back, a fea­ture re­quested by the bride that re­vealed a ver­ti­cal scar from her surgery at age 12 to cor­rect sco­l­io­sis. She has said pre­vi­ously it’s im­por­tant for peo­ple to show their scars.
