Eugenie, 28, younger daughter of the queen's third child, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, tied the knot with Brooksbank, 32, in the castle's 15th Century St George's Chapel.

"Most Brits opposed taxpayer funding of Prince Harry's wedding but as with all royal events were forced to accept it", a spokesman for the group said. Several representatives from the charity were invited to stand inside the grounds of Windsor Castle along with representatives of other charitable organizations supported by the couple.

The pictures coincided with the announcement of the bridal party.

Eugenie's sister, Princess Beatrice, will read a passage from "The Great Gatsby".

Thousands of well-wishers are also expected to line the streets of Windsor to cheer the newly-married couple as they drive past in a carriage procession at 12pm BST.

The queen will host a champagne luncheon for the newlyweds shortly after the ceremony.
