Princess Eugenie is set to say her “I dos” to fiancé Jack Brooksbank on Friday morning. Ahead of the second major royal wedding of the year, guests have allegedly received information packs about etiquette and rules for the big day.
Guests were given strict meeting times and locations as well as details of a no cell phones or social media policy.
The couple shared the day’s schedule with guests, including pointing out a meeting point where attendees will be escorted to the venue.
Photography is banned at the ceremony, which takes place inside St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same location Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot five months ago.
According to royal expert Katie Nicholl in Vanity Fair, the soon-to-be newlyweds have requested guests meet at the Farm Shop in Windsor at 10:15 a.m., where they will then be whisked away to the chapel by a fleet of mini buses. The same shop was used for for May’s royal wedding.
While the guest list has remained mostly private, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be in attendance, alongside the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Robbie Williams and Ayda Fields will also be at the royal wedding, and their daughter is one of Eugenie’s flower girls.
Savannah and Isla Phillips, Mia Tindall and Maud Windsor will also be flower girls. Princess Charlotte will be a bridesmaid and Prince George a page boy, while Eugenie’s sister Princess Beatrice will act as maid of honour.
According to the information packet, guests have also been asked to “surrender mobile telephones, cameras and any electronic devices used for image capture” for the afternoon reception at Windsor Castle, hosted by the Queen.
A similar request was made for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
Despite having a registry, the bride and groom have asked that guests refrain from bringing gifts to the ceremony and rather send their gifts to Buckingham Palace.
Much like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the princess and her husband-to-be plan to kiss for the cameras on the West Steps before embarking on a 15-minute carriage procession through Windsor.
