Another Royal Wedding! 

It looks as though Princess Eugenie will follow in Prince Harry’s footsteps when it comes to her wedding and is looking at inviting members of the public to her wedding to Jack Brooksbank.

The couple is tying the knot on October 12 at St George’s Chapel, the same venue where Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding took place. 

Buckingham Palace released a statement saying:

“Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank would like to invite members of the public to join their wedding on 12 October, 2018, to attend inside the Precincts of Windsor Castle.”

“1,200 members of the public will be able to view the arrival of the congregation and Members of the Royal Family, listen to a live broadcast of the Marriage Service and watch the start of the procession as the couple depart at the end of the Wedding ceremony.”

People will have to apply via a ballot to join the crowd on the couple’s special day.

Eugenie and Jack met while skiing and dated long-distance while the Princess moved to New York City for her career.

Prince Andrew is very happy his daughter and Jack, saying:

"Jack is an absolutely outstanding young man and Eugenie and he have got to know each other over a number of years, and I’m really thrilled for them.”

“I’m just completely overjoyed for them and wish them every happiness.”

Sarah Ferguson, Eugenie’s mother also added:

“We love Jack and I am so excited to have a son.”
