Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank hold final rehearsal ahead of Royal Wedding

The happy couple are set to tie the knot at St George’s Chapel with a regal escort including Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The Queen's great-granddaughter, 28, will say her wedding vows with Eton-educated Tequila ambassador Tom at exactly 12 noon on Friday.

The Dean of Windsor describe them as the "perfect couple".

The pair were spotted hours earlier arriving at Windsor as the final preparations were being made.

With Mr Brooksbank at the wheel of the car, they travelled in convoy with a vehicle driven by the Duke of York with his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York beside him and Princess Beatrice on a back seat.

In Windsor, there was a noticeable police presence as security was stepped up ahead of the couple's big day – which is expected to attract thousands to the Berkshire town.

David Conner, the Dean of Windsor, said it had been a pleasure to work with the Queen's granddaughter and her fiance in the run-up to their wedding service, which he said would be a mix of the "traditional and modern".

The dean, who will officiate when the couple make their marriage vows and give the address, has also been giving the pair the traditional pre-marital guidance counselling.

He said: "As a couple they come across as just the perfect couple.
"They are very natural with each other, they obviously love one another but they also have a lot of fun together and it's been a real pleasure to work with them."

The couple have invited 850 guests to their special day – 250 more than Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Several members of the Royal Family are set to attend, including Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Prince Charles, however, will attend his niece’s wedding alone as Camilla has a previously-arranged royal engagement.


Celebrity guests will include singer Robbie Williams and wife Ayda Field.

The Grenadier Guards, of which the bride’s father, Prince Andrew is colonel, will line the West Steps as the couple leave as man and wife.

They will then parade through the streets of Windsor in an open-top carriage.

Prince George, five, and his little sister Princess Charlotte, three, are back in the wedding spotlight as a page boy and bridesmaid.

They will be joined by Zara and Mike ­Tindall’s daughter Mia, four, and Peter and Autumn Phillips’ daughters Savannah, seven, and six-year-old Isla.




During the service, which takes place at 11am, opera star Andrea Bocelli, 60, will sing two songs while state trumpeters from the Band of the Household Cavalry will perform a fanfare as the bride arrives.

Eugenie’s goddaughter, Maud Windsor, the five-year-old granddaughter of Princess Michael of Kent, also makes the party and the second pageboy is Louis de Givenchy, six, the son of high-flying JP ­Morgan banker Olivier and his wife Zoe who are close friends.

Princess Eugenie, 28, has also created special “attendant” roles for her cousins Louise, 14, and James, ten, the children of the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

The wedding service will include a personal prayer written by Archbishop of York John Sentamu.


Dean of Windsor David Conner will give the address and before officiating as the couple make their marriage vows.

After the ceremony, guests will enjoy a traditional champagne reception hosted by the Queen.

The evening reception is being organised by wedding planner Peregrine Armstrong-Jones, the man behind David and Victoria Beckham's 1999 big day.

They will have a sit-down meal at the Royal Lodge, where Princess Eugenie grew up and Prince Andrew and mum Sarah Ferguson still live – despite being divorced for 22 years.

The couple have opted for a lavish three-course dinner in a private marquee laid with a glass dance floor.
