It seems that many British upper class weddings only have the bridal party children attend and not other children; is that a correct impression? If so, I cannot imagine that those children wouldn't get a day off to be a flower girl or page boy at a wedding.

Getting a day off for your parent's cousin (or your second cousin) is probably a bit too much to ask if not in the wedding party.

According to UK school guidelines, which I looked up, you get fined if it is an unexcused absence. If you make a request of the school for the day off, you wouldn't face a fine. I would think the kids in Eugenie and Jack's bridal party would have plenty of time to get that permission from school.

Well was right on likely weekend of the 13th, just the wrong day

Tad surprised weekday when not bank holiday but maybe it was the only day that worked for the schedules of everyone.

Only if the request was accepted you wouldn't face a fine. Schools in the Windsor district (ordinary ones) break up for October half term the week after.

I do think it'll be a daytime wedding simply because of the time of year, I don't think anyone would have any issues taking children out of school as I think this will be a child friendly reception at the very least.

Looking at back copies of Hello.

Charles and Camilla - Beatrice & Eugenie (16 & 15) seem to be the only children. (Photos of arrivals only.)

Peter & Autumn - young Chattos and Linleys. Youngsters from Autumns family and children in the bridal party.

Zara & Mike - only children seem to be those in the bridal party - again, only photos are those of people arriving.

Not a scientific study by any means but it seems Peter & Autumn were really the only couple who invited children outside of the bridal party.

Will the Queen gives formal consent to the marriage of Jack and Princess Eugenie like W&K and H&M?

She doesn’t need to; Eugenie is far enough down the line of succession that she doesn’t require the Queen’s consent to marry.

I wonder if Prince Andrew will like his son-in-law, Jack.

I have a lot of questions about Mr and Mrs Brooksbank.

1) Is Jack Brooksbank the typical British upper-middle class, or is he part of British aristocracy?

No. Since the Succession to the Crown Act came into effect in 2015 only the first six need permission to marry. As Eugenie - by the time of her marriage will be 9th in the line of succession she won't need permission to marry at all.

After the new baby is born Andrew won't need permission and everyone lower than him in the line of succession will be able to marry without asking for the Queen's consent.

It means that there won't be a Privy Council meeting where the issue is raised and that Eugenie and Jack - and hopefully later Beatrice - won't get the fancy parchment consent that William and Kate have, as do Peter and Autumn and Zara and Mike. Eugenie will be the highest in the line of succession, since the introduction of Royal Marriage Act under George III to not need consent.

There is a thread about Jack's family and their background. You can find all we know about his parents and heritage there.

Jack Brooksbank: Family and Background

His great-grandfather was a baronet. But he is descended from a younger line. The current baronet is first cousins of Jack's father.
