Royal wedding kiss: Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s first kiss as crowds cheer
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank shared their first public kiss as a married couple after a touching Royal Wedding ceremony – a romantic gesture that saw thousands of well-wishers cheering at the loved-up couple.
The much-anticipated smooch is set to become one of the most defining images of Eugenie and Jack’s momentous big day.
Thrilled royal fans gathered in Windsor witnessed the emotional moment, watching the groom leaning towards the adoring bride to seal their union.
As the couple exchanged a brief, heartwarming kiss, the crowd erupted in cheer.
Eugenie and Jack then smiled at the well-wishers and walked down the steps of the chapel.
The couple held their hands as they were followed by the little bridesmaids and Prince George, the pageboy.
After them, the other guests slowly started exiting St George’s Chapel to head to the first wedding reception in honour of the bride and groom.
Die-hard royal fans will remember the ones that came before, including Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s kiss, just five months ago in the same Windsor chapel.
The first public royal kiss ever photographed was the one shared by Prince Charles and Princess Diana on the iconic balcony of Buckingham Palace on July 29 1981.
Many more followed, including Eugenie’s parents Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s in 1986 and Prince William and Kate’s in 2011.
Princess Eugenie and Jack’s wedding mirrored Meghan and Harry’s for more than one reason beside exchanging a public kiss.
Both couples chose Windsor Castle as their venue, and they both allowed royal enthusiasts to catch a glimpse of them embarking on a carriage procession along a route through the streets of the royal town.
Princess Eugenie and her new husband left the splendid St George’s Chapel as the talented pipers from the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Scotland performed.
Celebrations honouring Eugenie and Jack’s big day will last throughout the whole day.
While the thousands of well-wishers who gathered in the streets of Windsor leave the city, the couple’s guests headed inside the castle to attend a reception hosted by the Queen.
Later today, the party will move to the Yorks’ household, the Royal Lodge, for an evening reception organised by Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
Eugenie and Jack’s ceremony was broadcasted by ITV.
The Royal Family also decided to take the ceremony to the internet, live streaming it on the Royal Family and Prince Andrew’s official YouTube channels after the BBC snubbed the event amid fear the public would not be interested in the second Royal Wedding of the year.
