Duke of Edinburgh at Windsor Castle ahead of royal wedding

Christmas-tree-Windsor-Castle

Princess Eugenie and her fiance Jack Brooksbank are preparing for their October wedding, which is said to be much different from Harry and Meghan's ceremony.

A smattering of celebrities are expected to be among the guests with the daughter ex-"Take That" singer Robbie Williams one of the bridesmaids.

Speaking about the first time she saw her husband-to-be, Eugenie said: "I thought "who's that", then you came over and shook my hand and I was all butterflies and nervous and I think I rang my mum that night and was like "I've just met this guy Jack".

"She's been incredible, she has the ability to do a million things at once in her brain, including working as well as organising everything to do with the wedding", he added.

"Princess Eugenie and Mr Jacksbrook have invited people from the charities they support into the grounds of Windsor Castle tomorrow - to help celebrate their wedding day", the family shared on Twitter.

Part of the draw will be the chance to catch a glimpse of the queen and other royals, including William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and their two young children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The other pageboy is Louis de Givenchy, six, the son of friends.

On Wednesday, State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said the United States "had no advance knowledge" of such a plan. Asked if he believed it was the Saudis, Trump responded: 'I would rather not say, but the answer is yes, ' he said.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed - as widely speculated - that Eugenie's sister Princess Beatrice will serve as her Maid of Honour.

Brooksbank, 32, has asked his brother Thomas to be his best man.

While Harry's wedding featured a fiery sermon from a U.S. Episcopalian bishop and a gospel choir, Eugenie's will be more traditional with a performance by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli and the address given by Conner.

They will also hear a personal prayer written by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu.

Speaking about why Windsor is so important to the bride and groom, Sky's events commentator Alastair Bruce said: "It's perfectly created to be the most attractive backdrop for any occasion".

The group says Eugenie does not carry out royal duties and that weddings are personal, private occasions, not affairs of state.

Princess Eugenie, who is ninth in line to the throne, became engaged to Jack in Nicaragua in January, and they announced their engagement through Buckingham Palace.
