2018’s second royal wedding is almost here as Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbanks are set to be wed at St. George’s Chapel on Friday, October 12, and it seems the Princess is not letting anything slip by!
According to Vanity Fair, Eugenie and Brooksbank guest list is set to exceed 800 people, and to make sure nothing goes awry they have handed out “an information packet with all the dos and don’ts for the big day.”
The “information packet” is said to include information on the exact time guests need to arrive, and also forewarns them of a lack of toilets for so many people and states everyone will need to bring two forms of I.D.
Guests will also be asked “to surrender mobile telephones, cameras, and any electronic devices used for image capture” and were also told not to bring their gifts with them, as they should be send to the Duke of York’s office at Buckingham Palace.
The guide also informs guests that they are to arrive at a farm shop in Windsor early with their two pieces of identification where they will then be “escorted onto minibuses and driven to the church where they are to be seated at 10:15 A.M.”
The Dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David Conner will officiate as the couple make their vows. As they depart, members of Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards will line the West Steps of St. George’s Chapel, while pipers from the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Scotland will perform as the bride and groom set off on a carriage procession through Windsor.
Just as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did on their wedding day in May, Eugenie and Brooksbank plan to kiss for the cameras on the West Steps before they depart for a 15-minute carriage procession through the streets of Windsor.
Princess Eugenie of York is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, making her one of Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter and is currently ninth in line of succession to the throne.
