Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are set to tie the knot on October 12, and there will be no shortage of famous faces in attendance to watch them walk down the aisle.
The couple will be married at St. George’s Cathedral, aka the same place where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry celebrated their big day, and it’s likely that many of the same guests will be returning for the second royal wedding of
Seeing as Eugenie is Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter, Prince Charles’ niece and Prince Harry and William’s cousin, the royal family will no doubt be in attendance. The only person who may not make it is Kate Middleton, as her sister Pippa Middleton may go into labor with her first child around the same time as the wedding.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, it’s likely that there will be no shortage of celebrities present as well. George and Amal Clooney, who attended Meghan and Harry’s wedding back in May (where George bartended with Casamigos!) May be on the guest list, as well as Ellie Goulding who has been known to vacation with Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice. Singer James Blunt and his wife Sofia Wellsley, the daughter of Lord and Lady John Henry Wellesley, will probably have a seat in the pews of St. George’s thanks to their royal connections, as will Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriends Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy (Fun fact: Princess Eugenie was actually the one who introduced Prince Harry to Bonas back in the day, according to Bazaar.)
In addition to their A-list guests, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbanks have also invited 1,200 members of the public to share in their special day. “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York and Mr. Jack Brooksbank will invite members of the public to join in the celebrations of their wedding on Friday 12th October,” a Buckingham Palace statement announced in July. The Palace added via Twitter that “1,200 members of the public will be able to view the arrival of the congregation and Members of the Royal Family, listen to a live broadcast of the Marriage Service and watch the start of the procession as the couple depart at the end of the Wedding ceremony.”
As for the rest of us, we’ll be watching on Instagram (or hopefully on TV!) to see what kind of fascinators these famous guests accessorize with this time
