Princess Eu­ge­nie weds beau at Wind­sor Cas­tle

Orlando Sentinel - - PEOPLE & ARTS -

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.

The 28-year-old bride, the queen’s grand­daugh­ter, is ninth in line to the Bri­tish throne. She wore a longsleeved 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 lent to her by the queen.

Queen El­iz­a­beth II and her hus­band, Prince Philip, at­tended the wed­ding, along with other se­nior roy­als, in­clud­ing Prince Charles; Prince Wil­liam and his wife, Kate; and Prince Harry with Meghan.

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 works at a con­tem­po­rary art gallery. The cou­ple, who had dated for seven years, got en­gaged in Jan­uary when Brooks­bank, 32, pro­posed dur­ing a trip to Nicaragua. They mar­ried in the same venue used in May by Harry and Meghan.
