WINDSOR: Hollywood stars Liv Tyler and Demi Moore and singer Robbie Williams were among the first celebrity guests to arrive at Britain’s second royal wedding of the year on Friday to see Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie marry Jack Brooksbank.Models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell as well as singer Ellie Goulding were also among the attendees at Windsor Castle, the venue where Eugenie’s cousin Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married in May.
Britain’s Princess Eugenie married tequila executive Jack Brooksbank in a star-studded royal wedding Friday at St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.The 28-year-old bride, a granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, is ninth in line to the British throne. She wore a long-sleeved gown with a fitted top, a peplum and a long train by British designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos and a diamond-and-emerald tiara loaned to her by the queen.The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, attended the wedding, along with other senior royals, including Prince Charles, Prince William and his wife Kate, the duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry with Meghan, the duchess of Sussex.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.They are the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, who are divorced but enjoy an amicable relationship.Eugenie’s dress was cut in a deep V in the front and the back, a feature requested by the bride that revealed a vertical scar from her surgery at 12 to correct scoliosis. She has said previously it’s important for people to show their scars.There were occasional blue skies on a generally cloudy, gusty day as the royal standard flew atop the Windsor Castle complex, indicating the queen was in residence. The strong winds forced many women to hold on to their elaborate hats as they approached the chapel.
