Holding their hats, guests celebrate next big royal wedding

Kate stepped out in the chic lilac dress for an event in London

Jack Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie exchange rings during their wedding ceremony.

William and Kate's 5-year-old son, Prince George, served as a page boy, and their daughter, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, was one of six bridesmaids.

Eugenie's elder sister, Princess Beatrice, the maid of honor, will deliver a reading, an extract from the novel "The Great Gatsby".

Because the wedding takes place on a weekday, and they are "minor" royals, it is unlikely to attract the 13 million United Kingdom audience of her cousin's wedding.

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived with Prince William, wearing a dress by Alexander McQueen and a Philip Treacy hat.

Eugenie's dress showed off the scars on her back from a surgery she had at the age of 12 for scoliosis.

Given it was only five months ago, trends are still reasonably consistent, so it's more sensible to compare Eugenie, who has no official royal role, to Meghan, rather than her cousin, Kate, who married Prince William in 2011.

The couple will celebrate their nuptials with a reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle.

Eugenie is the younger daughter of the queen's third child, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, whose hat was mocked on Twitter.

The gown's low back was purposefully created to show off Eugenie's scar from her childhood spinal surgery, while its jacquard fabric included a motif of Scottish thistle, Irish shamrocks, the York rose and ivy to represent the bride and groom's families and home.

The couple got engaged in January when Brooksbank, 32, proposed during a holiday trip to Nicaragua in Central America.

A history of art graduate from the university of Newcastle, Eugenie is a director at the London gallery Hauser & Wirth. Eugenie and the groom, Jack Brooksbank, will be taking a carriage ride through the streets of Windsor.

In the above photos, Sarah poses for a dramatic profile shot, enveloped in a luxe, ruffled shawl and can also be seen strutting her stuff on a runway, sporting a stunning ruby gown.

"I'm a royal superfan, so when her majesty organizes a big event for her granddaughter, I can't stay at home", said Joseph Afrane, 54.
