The second royal wedding of 2018 takes place on October 12, with Princess Eugenie set to marry Jack Brooksbank in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. And as the wedding day draws ever closer, more details about their special day have been revealed.
According to the palace, Princess Eugenie’s wedding will feature some phenomenal musicians. As the ceremony is taking place in the same venue as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding, Eugenie and Jack will also benefit from the talents of the Director of Music at St. George’s Chapel, James Vivian. Per the palace, Vivian has “written descants for two hymns that will be sung during the Service.”
Members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO), of which Eugenie’s father, Prince Andrew, is the Patron, will also be performing during the ceremony. By all accounts, their inclusion in the service has been a collaborative process with Jack and Eugenie. In a press release, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s James Williams described working with Princess Eugenie as “a great pleasure.”
It was also revealed that the legendary singer Andrea Bocelli will be performing two songs during the ceremony, which is sure to make the service unforgettable.
The service will also feature the Archbishop of York, The Most Reverend and Right Honorary John Sentamu, who “has written a personal prayer for the Wedding Service,” per the palace. Meanwhile, the Dean of Windsor, The Right Reverend David Conner, will officiate the couple’s vows.
It’s also been announced that Jack Brooksbank’s family history is getting a sweet nod thanks to military involvement in the wedding. Per the palace, Brooksbank’s great grandfather, Sir Jack Coke, had been an officer in the Scots Guards.
It was revealed by the palace that State Trumpeters from the Band of the Household Cavalry will perform a fanfare written especially for the occasion during the service. And Princess Eugenie’s dad, Prince Andrew, is Colonel of the Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards, who will line up on the West Steps of St. George’s Chapel for the couple’s departure from their wedding.
Finally, pipers from the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland will perform Scottish pieces from the Garter Tower as Eugenie and Jack set off on their carriage procession around Windsor. Basically, the second royal wedding of 2018 is shaping up to be spectacular.
