Princess Eugenie married James Brooksbank in a glamorous ceremony at Windsor Castle in October, just months after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry uttered their vows in the same chapel.

Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson knew each other long before they both married into the Royal Family.

The pair were distantly related and their parents went to school together.

The couple also regularly met for lunch when in their twenties.
