Royal Wedding: Jack Brooksbank BURSTS INTO TEARS as Princess Eugenie enters Church
Groom Jack Brooksbank burst into tears as he first spotted Princess Eugenie entering St. George’s Chapel ahead of their wedding ceremony.
An already close-to-tears Jack Brooksbank burst into tears as his Royal bride-to-be walked down the aisle of St. George’s Chapel on Friday.
Jack was forced to momentarily remove his glasses to dry his tears before the ceremony started and was forced to take them off completely as Princess Eugenie joined hit at the altar.
The couple, who started dating in 2010, will be wed at St George’s chapel – the same venue as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
There will be a reception after the marriage in the Windsor grounds, which will comprise a funfair and festival-themed party day.
Over 850 guests have allegedly been invited – more than St George’s chapel 800 person capacity allows.
The public had their cameras and phones at the ready at the West Door eager for the first glimpse of Princess Eugenie and her dress as she arrived with her father in the Queen’s Rolls Royce Phantom VI.
As the bride waved from the car one woman in Horseshoe Cloister remarked: “Oh, she looks stunning.”
Onlookers waved small union flags as she ascended the steps with the Duke of York, who at one stage moved to help fix her train.
The Queen and Prince Philip and Prince Charles – without his wife Camilla – arrived in Windsor together.
The monarch was wearing an ice blue Angela Kelly coat, dress and hat – with large gold and diamond buttons and an ice blue and peach scalloped lame dress.
Other royals in attendance include Princess Anne, Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Prince Edward, Zara Tindall and her husband Mike Tindall.
Meanwhile, Kate’s pregnant sister Pippa Middleton has also been spotted in Windsor showing off her growing baby bump alongside her husband, James Matthews.
Oh, she looks stunning
Sarah Ferguson, also in attendance, was said to have been a “bag of nerves” ahead of meeting her former father-in-law Prince Philip, who has never forgiven her for the scandal she caused when she was caught in the infamous “toe-sucking” incident with oil tycoon, John Bryan.
Princess Eugenie, who is ninth in line to the throne, stunned in an ivory dress, designed by British-based Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.
The 28-year-old’s dress featured a neckline that folds around the shoulders to a low back that drapes into a flowing full-length train.
The dress also included a number of symbols meaningful to Princess Eugenie as motifs, including a thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple’s fondness for Balmoral, a Shamrock for Ireland as a nod to the bride’s Ferguson family, and the York Rose and ivy representing the couple’s home.
Eugenie was also wearing the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, made in 1919 in the fashionable “kokoshnik” style popularised in the Russian Imperial Court, which was lent to her by the Queen, along with diamond and emerald drop earrings, a wedding gift from the groom, and satin peep-toe heels by Charlotte Olympia.
The low back feature was specifically requested by Princess Eugenie, who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis.
Three-year-old Princess Charlotte, wearing a white dress with floral belts, waved to the crowds as she was joined by her brother, Prince George, five.
Kate and William’s children arrived along with Eugenie’s gaggle of bridesmaids and pageboys, who also included Prince George and Theodora Williams – daughter of pop star Robbie Williams and Ayda Field.

The others were Zara and Mike Tindall’s spirited four-year-old Mia, Peter and Autumn Phillips’s daughters Savannah and Isla, Eugenie’s goddaughter Maud Windsor, and family friend Louis de Givenchy.
The pageboys were decked out in white shirts with navy blue trousers.
Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, eldest daugther of Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, kept the adorable youngsters in check.
Lady Louise greeted the bridal party at the West Steps before they entered the chapel, and the team of youngsters were kept in check by the Cambridges’ nanny as they waited to follow the bride down the aisle.
