Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank after their wedding ceremony at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, near London, England, Friday Oct. 12, 2018.

Eugenie, a director at London's Hauser & Wirth art gallery, and Brooksbank, who is European brand manager for Casamigos Tequila, which was co-founded by US actor George Clooney, met in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier in 2010.

Eugenie's elder sister Princess Beatrice, the maid of honour, read a passage from the The Great Gatsby describing the smile of the title character, a rich man famed for throwing parties for the 1920s NY glitterati.

Hollywood actress Demi Moore, model Cara Delevigne and singer James Blunt were also in attendance at the event, alongside numerous other stars of stage and screen.

"When it is all over, Eugenie will continue to live with an identity experienced by a tiny minority: as a fully fledged princess, gawped at, envied and scrutinised by all", Bell wrote. The pair met on a skiing vacation in Switzerland in seven years ago, and Brooksbank proposed in January when the pair were in Nicaragua.

Princess Eugenie'sroyal wedding was a fashionably fabulous affair!

Usain Bolt fires two goals in Australian league trial
Bolt started for the Mariners against a second-tier National Premier League combined team representing Sydney's southwest region. And a couple of months on, he's bagged a brace on his first start for the club - with the first goal a very tidy finish.

But when Eugenie arrived, wearing jewellery the exact colour of her mother's dress, Fergie was every inch the proud mother - and the public couldn't get enough of her. William and Catherine's children Prince George and Princess Charlotte were on hand to serve as a page boy and bridesmaid.

Eugenie's wedding dress was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos and featured long sleeves with a flowing train, folded shoulders, and a low back. The Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also expected to attend.

Many have speculated that they could return to the place where Jack asked Eugenie to marry him, Calala Island just off the coast of Nicaragua. Anne was also the first English princess to be heavily involved in the design process herself.

Meanwhile, maid of honor and sister Princess Beatrice arrived in a royal blue dress by Ralph and Russo and purple headband by Sarah Cant, which was a modest choice compared to the flamboyant hats she has worn in the past.

Is there bad blood brewing in the British royal family? Eugenie, though, opted not to wear it (guessing it's cursed?) and instead, for her "something borrowed", she wore the Queen's Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara. "And she likes to have fun with fashion".
