The most recent royal wedding has taken place, and for all those who couldn’t wait to see Princess Eugenie’s wedding look on Friday, October 12, she did not disappoint.
The daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York arrived at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle for her wedding to Jack Brooksbank in a stunning gown that was designed with an open back in order to feature the scar from her spinal surgery.
The gown which was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos featured a fitted botice and full pleated skirt as well as a neckline fold that hugged the shoulders with a high v-neck in the back and the front. The v-neck in the back was requested by Eugenie herself, who had surgery on her spine when she was 12 years old to correct her scoliosis.
The designers also paid tribute to prior royal wedding dresses, with the gown having a very simple and elegant look reminiscent of Meghan Markle’s wedding gown from earlier this year.
The fabric was designed by Pilotto and Vos at their studio in East London and includes a number of symbols that are meaningful to Princess Eugenie as motifs: a Thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple’s fondness for Balmoral; a Shamrock for Ireland as a reflection of the bride’s maternal family; the York Rose; and ivy representing the couple’s home.
As for her stunning tiara, Eugenie donned the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara that was lent to her by her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. The tiara is made of many rose cut diamonds pave set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side and matched the tiara with gorgeous emerald drop earrings which were a wedding gift from Jack.
Congratulations Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank!EPA/NEIL HALL Steve Parsons, Pool via AP
