CBBC Newsround: What did you think of the royal wedding?

  • Princess Eugenie

Compared to Harry and Meghan's shindig back in May, it was calmer in Windsor when Eugenie married Jack - a little subdued perhaps, and certainly windier.

There had been doubts about whether the 97-year-old Philip would be well enough to attend, but he seemed to be in good form during a rare public appearance.

Eugenie's sister, Princess Beatrice, served as maid of honor _ she read a selection from F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" during the service.

Princess Eugenie made a bold statement with her choice of bridal gown, designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, for her wedding to Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle Friday.

Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle for the second Royal Wedding in 2018.

The Princess of York is a long-time fan of the designers who she met while co-hosting an event in support of women artists.

Meghan wore a Givenchy coat and dress with a Noel Stewart hat.


Mia, 4, who is the daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall and Maud Windsor, 5, who is Eugenie's goddaughter and daughter of Lady Frederick and Lord Frederick Windsor joined the gorgeous bunch as bridesmaids too.

Eugenie hinted at the design of her dress in an interview broadcast on ITV earlier Friday, when she spoke about the importance of changing people's conceptions of beauty.

The sights of St George's Chapel might also be familiar to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who will be in attendance after having tied the knot only a few months back at the same venue.

That's reflected in the souvenir shops that line the streets leading to the imposing castle.

"It was love at first sight", Princess Eugenie told This Morning.

But Camilla sent a letter of apology for her absence - snubbing her niece's big day for a pre-arranged tour of the Crathie Primary School in Aberdeenshire.

"I stayed up just to see what Meghan Markle is wearing and if she looks pregnant".
