Big day arrives for royal wedding couple Eugenie and Jack

It is the same chapel the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, married at nearly five months ago at the first big royal wedding of the year.

The Queen and Prince Philip have taken their seats in St George's Chapel alongside Eugenie's mother, the Duchess of York, and her sister Beatrice.

Instead, Jack wanted Eugenie's ring to be a copy of the one her dad, Prince Andrew, gave her mom, Sarah, Duchess of York, Marie Claire reports. Among the bridesmaids and pageboys are Prince William and Kate's eldest children, Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3; Zara and Mike Tindall's firstborn daughter, four-year-old Mia Tindall; and Savannah and Isla Phillips, aged seven and six respectively, the daughters of Peter and Autumn Phillips.

They will undertake a short ride in a carriage from the Royal Mews, out of Windsor Castle and on to part of the High Street after the wedding.

Criticism has already been levied at the estimated £2 million security bill, which falls to the taxpayer, for Eugenie's wedding.

In an interview on the eve of the royal wedding, the Queen's granddaughter said she was nervous but couldn't wait to exchange vows with drinks industry executive Jack Brooksbank, 32, because "it was love at first sight", the Daily Mail reported.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attempted an inconspicuous entrance into Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding on Friday.

Until about a week ago, I didn't know who Eugenie was.

Jack Brooksbank has arrived with his best man and brother, Thomas.

George and Charlotte waved as they made their way up the steps of St. George's Chapel, the same steps they walked as page boy and bridesmaid in Harry and Meghan's wedding in May.

"We're hoping she's going to have a great day and we're very pleased that she's shared her day with us".

In other words, you could subscribe to one of these services to live stream the Princess Eugenie wedding for free on Friday, and then have a few more days to try it out.

In a departure from royal tradition, the couple chose a red velvet and chocolate wedding cake.

The couple has invited 1,200 members of the public to come onto the castle grounds for a closer glimpse of proceedings.
