Pre-wedding nerves may be kicking in for Princess Eugenie and her husband-to-be Jack Brooksbank as the big day is mere hours away.
Eugenie has been with fiancé Jack for eight years, after meeting him on a skiing trip through mutual friends.
For the second royal wedding of the year, the Princess has chosen the same venue as cousin Prince Harry’s nuptials to Meghan Markle in May this year.

What time is Princess Eugenie’s wedding?
Whilst guests will be arriving from 10am, Princess Eugenie will make her entrance just before 11am for the ceremony to begin on the hour.
Lasting for approximately an hour, the Dean of Windsor, David Connor will officiate the wedding whilst John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York will lead prayers.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds will take to a carriage for a procession out of Windsor Castle grounds and into the town.
Royal fans will be able to see the couple pass through Castle Gate and travel along Windsor High Street, before returning back to the castle via the Cambridge Gate.
On the couple’s return, the Queen will then host a reception in Windsor Castle for the 850 invited guests.
Later, a black-tie reception will be held at the Royal Lodge, the home of Eugenie’s father – the Duke of York, Prince Andrew.
The Royal Lodge is located in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire, approximately three miles south of Windsor Castle.
The Grade II listed property was home to the Queen Mother for more than 70 years until her death in 2002.
Prince Andrew was then granted a 75-year lease of the Georgian House in 2003.
The second day of celebrations will be held at the Royal Lodge, however, will be a much more relaxed affair than the night before.
The guests will return to the 17th-century property and its 51-acre grounds for a funfair-themed celebration.
A royal source told The Daily Telegraph: “After the more formal celebration at Windsor Castle, the Saturday bash will be a relaxed party.
“There will be dodgems and funfair rides, coconut shies, lots of food stalls, loads of cocktails, Bloody Marys for the hangovers and a festival vibe.”
For those wanting to watch the big day as it happens, ITV1 are broadcasting the ceremony live on This Morning at the Royal Wedding hosted by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
The programme will begin at 10am to give viewers the chance to witness royal and celebrity guests arriving.
