All eyes were on Kate Middleton, Prince William, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as they arrived at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

The 14-year-old, who was given a special role at the wedding along with her younger brother, Viscount James Severn, looked simply lovely dressed in blue was she helped the little bridesmaids and pageboys up the stairs of St. George's Chapel, holding hands with Prince George and helping the other pageboy, Louis de Givenchy, after he took a tumble on the steps. Only eight years old at the time, the youngster looked simply adorable in a white bridesmaid dress, and joined the family while waving to well-wishers on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

Eugenie is ninth in line to the throne and the daughter of Ferguson and Prince Andrew, Duke of York.

William and Catherine's children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are also there.

The crowds caught a glimpse of the bride and her wedding dress.

Final preparations are being made in the English town of Windsor for Britain's second major royal wedding this year, this time involving Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter Princess Eugenie.


Eugenie and Brooksbank, 32, have dated for many years. This has led to raised eyebrows over the couple's decision to copy Harry and Meghan with an open-topped carriage ride through Windsor, requiring road closures and an estimated £2m policing bill.

"There will be a few more people than most people have, there are a few more than Harry had, but that's just the nature of Eugenie and Jack - they've got so many friends that they need a church of that size to fit them all in", he told ITV's "This Morning" which broadcast the event live. Her sister, Princess Beatrice, will be maid of honour. The invitation list stretches to 850 guests - 250 more than Meghan and Harry.

The celebration will then continue with an afternoon reception hosted by the Queen in St George's Hall, followed by an evening party at the York family home, the Royal Lodge, in Windsor Great Park. 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.

"This is so they do not upstage the bride", she said on United Kingdom chat show This Morning.

She paired the dress with new, floral hooped statement earrings from the label and teamed the frock with deep purple accessories, including a waist cinching belt and plum velvet pumps from Jimmy Choo.

The presence of so many royals - and a number of celebrity guests - has prompted extra security measures to be put in place.
