Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding: The ceremony, guests, receptions and all the key moments

The celebrities are arriving and the castle has been bedecked in flowers – it must be another royal wedding.

Princess Eugenie will today marry her long-term partner, wine merchant and tequila ambassador Jack Brooksbank.

Stay here for all the major wedding events, from the sermon to the party.

Eugenie, 28, younger daughter of the queen’s third child Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, will tie the knot with Mr Brooksbank, a 32-year-old drinks executive, at Windsor Castle.

The ninth-in-line to the throne is following in the footsteps of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who also chose the venue for their wedding in May.

The ceremony will take place at 11am at the castle’s 15th Century St George’s Chapel with the Dean of Windsor David Conner officiating.

Female guests held onto their hats and headpieces as powerful gusts of wind whipped around the castle grounds.

Pre-wedding jitters

Jack Brooksbank has paid tribute to his future wife Princess Eugenie, calling her a "bright shining light".

The Queen’s granddaughter returned the compliment and described her fiance as "so humble and generous" during a television interview ahead of their wedding.

But Eugenie did reveal the moment she first saw Jack and the pair fell in love during a Swiss skiing trip.

She initially thought "what a silly hat" Jack was wearing, but was "all butterflies and nervous" when he came over to say hello, and later rang her mother that night to say she had met a new guy.

The couple were interviewed by husband and wife Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford from ITV’s This Morning, who quizzed them about wedding jitters.

After Eugenie replied, "It’s definitely creeping up on us now, the nerves" she went on to describe her first encounter with Jack while on the slopes at a friend’ place in Verbier, Switzerland in 2010.

With her fiance beside her, the princess added: "I thought, ‘what a silly hat!’ and I thought, ‘who’s that?’ and then you came over and shook my hand and I was all butterflies and nervous.

"I think I rang my mum that night and said ‘I’ve met this guy Jack’… and that was it I think about how it started.

"I remember being like ‘I really, really like this guy, I really want him to like me too’ and then you gave me this huge windscreen wiper wave and that was it, right, he likes me."

sked by Holmes to describe each other in three words, Jack said about his future wife: "She’s this bright shining light."

Eugenie was not so succinct and replied: "Jack’s the kind of guy, you know when you’re lost at a party and you can’t find anyone to talk to, and you start panicking and you need help? He’ll walk in and make everyone feel so special.

"He’ll scoop you up and talk to you and make you feel a million dollars… you’re so humble and generous. So humble and generous – that’s two words…"
