Royal bride Princess Eu­ge­nie shared two shy kisses with her new hus­band Jack Brooks­bank as they cel­e­brated af­ter their lav­ish royal wed­ding cer­e­mony.

On the West Steps of St Ge­orge’s Chapel at Wind­sor Cas­tle, new­ly­weds Eu­ge­nie and Jack ten­ta­tively per­formed the kisses for the cam­eras yes­ter­day be­fore wav­ing at on­look­ers.

The Queen’s 28-year-old grand­daugh­ter, who is ninth in line to the throne, and tequila brand am­bas­sador Jack said their vows in front of a con­gre­ga­tion of 800 peo­ple.

A fur­ther 1,200 peo­ple cho­sen by bal­lot fol­lowed pro­ceed­ings from the grounds.

The Duke of York had ear­lier de­clared his daugh­ter’s wed­ding had more guests than Harry and Meghan’s – be­cause she had so many friends.

Se­cu­rity was es­ti­mated to have cost tax­pay­ers £2 mil­lion.

Watch­ing in the his­toric 15th-cen­tury chapel of the cas­tle were the Queen, 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.

But the Duchess of Corn­wall missed the ser­vice af­ter choos­ing to at­tend en­gage­ments in Scot­land, in­clud­ing a dis­play of High­land danc­ing near the royal fam­ily’s Bal­moral home.

Celebri­ties in­cluded Hol­ly­wood ac­tresses Liv Tyler and Demi Moore, su­per­model Kate Moss, and pop star Rob­bie Wil­liams and his wife Ayda Field. Blus­tery con­di­tions led to some guests los­ing their hats as they ar­rived.

Eu­ge­nie wore the Gre­ville Emer­ald Kokoshnik Tiara loaned to her by the Queen. Brides­maid Princess Char­lotte took a tum­ble as she ar­rived be­fore the cer­e­mony.

Eu­ge­nie and Jack left the chapel in the cov­ered horse­drawn Scot­tish State Coach for their short car­riage ride to the evening re­cep­tion at the York fam­ily home Royal Lodge in Wind­sor Great Park

Mother of the bride Sarah, Duchess of York 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 af­ter Sarah was out­cast from the roy­als fol­low­ing the fa­mous “toe-suck­ing scan­dal”.
