Sec­ond royal fete sees Eu­ge­nie wed

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - INTERNATIONAL -

WIND­SOR, Eng­land — Bri­tain’s Princess Eu­ge­nie mar­ried tequila brand am­bas­sador Jack Brooks­bank in a star-stud­ded royal wed­ding Fri­day at St. Ge­orge’s Chapel on the grounds of Wind­sor Cas­tle.

It was the sec­ond wed­ding ex­trav­a­ganza of the year for the royal fam­ily.

The 28-year-old bride, 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 92-year-old 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.
