Is there anything that we love better than a royal wedding?

With all the pomp, ceremony, and outrageously outdated dress codes, excitement levels are reaching fever pitch with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry set to tie the knot in just a few days.

But for those who are already dreading the post-royal wedding blues after the couple’s big day is done, fear not, there’s another wedding on the horizon – with Princess Eugenie set to marry her long-term love Jack Brooksbank in October.

While royal watchers might be loving the glut of weddings, one person who might not be that excited is former Suits star Meghan.

Although newlywed Meghan will likely be riding high after her wedding and honeymoon, reports claim she might come crashing back to reality when she attends Eugenie’s nuptials thanks to one particular guest – Cressida Bonas.

Cressida famously dated Prince Harry for nearly two years, with royal author Katie Nicholl describing the gorgeous blonde dancer as one of Harry’s big loves.

“Harry’s had two big love affairs – Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas,” Katie tells Be.

“He was with Chelsy for seven years on and off and Cressida for two years, but neither wanted the life of a royal girlfriend… it was watching Kate [Middleton] on a royal tour that apparently spooked Cressida.”

Meghan won’t be able to escape Harry’s ex at the wedding either, following reports Princess Eugenie, who has been friends with Cressy for years and reportedly introduced her to Harry, is tipped to make her a bridesmaid as well.

“There’s a good chance Princess Eugenie will pick close friend Cressida Bonas to be one of her bridesmaids,” the Mirror reports.

“Eugenie is expected to ask sister Princess Beatrice to be her maid of honour, and close friends Molly Whitehall and Jules de Boinville are also likely to be in the bridal party.”

No doubt with her new husband Prince Harry by her side, Meghan won’t be too phased, but with the wedding taking place in the exact same chapel she’s getting married in, it all might be a bit too close for comfort…
