Princess Eugenie’s Royal Wedding: Where public will see couple’s first kiss after the wedding
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will mark their marriage with a public kiss before they head out to meet excited royal wedding watchers, and a royal expert has revealed where it is likely to happen.
Like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry before them, the romantic gesture is sure to be one of the defining images of their momentous wedding day.
Thousands of royal fans are set to flock to Windsor on October 12 after Buckingham Palace revealed the newlyweds will embark on a procession around the royal city after the televised ceremony.
However palace officials have remained tight- lipped over details surrounding the couple’s much-anticipated first kiss.
But royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk the moment will mirror that of Princess Eugenie’s cousin, Harry, who kissed his bride on the steps of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
He said: “I would certainly anticipate a kiss on the steps of St George’s Chapel as Harry and Meghan did, they were the first royal couple to do so publicly after marrying in the Chapel.
“The wedding will be undoubtedly be a joyous, colourful and fashionable affair.”

When Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer married on July 29, 1981, their kiss on Buckingham Palace balcony became one of the most enduring images in royal history and the first of its kind.
This was mirrored by their son Prince William who affectionately kissed his giggling wife, Kate, as thousands of well-wishers cheered beneath the famous balcony.
And just a few months ago, the newlywed Duke and Duchess of Sussex became the first royal couple to kiss on the steps of St George’s Chapel in front of hundreds of well-wishers.
With less than a week to go before their big day, the pair released further details, including information about the royal wedding service, cake and military involvement.
The Dean of Windsor will give the address and officiate as the couple make their vows and the Archbishop of York has written a personal prayer for the service.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO), of which Eugenie’s father the Duke of York is Patron, and Italian singer-songwriter Andrea Bocelli will perform during the ceremony.
Mr Bocelli will serenade Eugenie, 28, and Mr Brooksbank, 32, with two pieces at the service.
And State Trumpeters from the Band of the Household Cavalry will perform a fanfare during the service.
As the couple leave St George’s Chapel, members of Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards will line the West Steps. Pipers from the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Scotland will perform as the newlyweds set off on their carriage ride through Windsor.
