Anyway, Andrew is said to be Queen Elizabeth II's favorite son( which is probably a myth anyway) and the Queen is said to "adore" the York girls. It is unsurprising then that Eugenie will get a wedding at the Royal Chapel.

The rumours of the scaling down of the monarchy have been around since 1992 and is based on a comment from a low level staffer referring to an alleged throw-away line made by Prince Charles at an early meeting of how defunct 'Way Ahead Group'.

The only evidence of a 'scaling down' has been now royal duties for the York girls and a replication of the balcony scene from Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897 with just the monarch and direct heirs there rather than the extended family.

Since 2008 the family has actually expanded and will continue to do so with William and Kate having three children and no doubt Harry will have two or three meaning more HRH grandchildren of Charles than of The Queen - hardly scaling down.

Eugenie is just as much the Queen's granddaughter as Harry is her grandson. Zara didn't marry in Scotland because she was directed to have a smaller wedding, she married in Scotland because that's where she and Mike chose to marry.
BTW, reportedly William didn't want the huge wedding at Westminster. That was one of the things he didn't get to choose.

So happy for Eugenie and Jack. I somehow knew we could expect more than one royal wedding this year. Can’t wait to see what tiara she’ll wear (very likely it’ll be her mother’s tiara).
At the same time this will probably be a difficult time for Beatrice, while she’s undoubtedly be happy for her sister, I’m sure she’d have wanted to settle down before her (or around the same time).

Congratulations to Eugenie and Jack. I look forward for their wedding as well. It won't get as much press coverage as Harry and Meghan, but I imagine there will a photo call and an interview. Eugenie is the first blood princess to marry since Anne. And since the rules went bent for Meghan to attend Royal family events that have been barred from fiance(e)s and significant others in the past, Jack should be going too.

I hope there is no drama for this wedding. Fergie should be there; this is her daughter. I never understood why she was not invited to William and Kate's and only going to the outskirts of Sandringham. I also remember reading that Andrew want assurances that any man that marries his daughters get an earldom. Or Jack may turn down a title. And don't use the wedding as an opportunity to get RPOs for the York girls and more roles in the Firm. All in good time. Tiara - the one Fergie wore when she married Andrew, that's a given. Eugenie is 8th in line to the throne so she didn't need the queen's permission to marry.

It seems St George’s Chapel is the new firm favourite for marriages now. Two royal weddings his year, although as everyone has said, Eugenie's will be nowhere near as grand as Harry’s. We will still see photos of the family arriving and leaving as we saw there for Peter’s and Lady Helen’s. That will be just as lovey.

I think Windsor provides a lot of advantages:
  • It's relatively secure in a time where security is a constant concern. At the very least, as there is security there all the time, security for a wedding is both easier to scale up and less expensive than it would be at some accessible church.
    It's royal - indeed it is so very royal
    It's beautiful
    It's huge - not gigantic on the scale of Westminster - and this allows for a less expensive ceremony than Westminster would.
    Given the Queen and Prince are slowed down, this is really convenient for them. Even if they stay at BP to avoid the additional hubbub on the weekend of the wedding, those royal cars have made that trip so often, they could almost drive themselves. Both have rooms there to retreat to/change/etc.
Anyway, I am so pleased for Eug and Jack. Honestly, when I saw the rather dour look on Bea's face at church yesterday, the first thing that flitted through my head was the engagement would soon be announced. And I am not saying that out of cattiness, but out of concern for her.
For me, the fascinating thing will be the timing of the ceremony and meals/receptions for E and J. I can see them wanting to do a later afternoon to early evening thing leading right up to a reception.
We shall see in the fullness of time.

Congrats to the happy couple.

Pardon me if this question has been answered elsewhere but do we have an idea of the future role of the couple?
That is: Will Eugenie be Mrs. Eugenie Brooksbank, who happens to be a Princess or will she be Princess Eugenie, who happens to be married to Mr. Brooksbank?

"Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank" I imagine. That's how Princess Alexandra and Princess Anne were styled.

Congratulations to the engaged couple !
I SAID THE SAME THING!!!! Maybe Andrew and Sarah may reunite someday 🙂. I'm very happy for the Princess. I can't wait to see her dress and of course, the tiara. *Cough* King George Fringe *Cough*. I feel like BRF is pulling a SRF with all these weddings and Babies. this gonna be a great year!!!

The Princess's title is likely to be - HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank.
Just as HRH Princess Alexandra of Kent became HRH became HRH Princess Alexandra, the Hon. Mrs Angus Ogilvy upon marriage.

This is what I would expect.

Though at least one princess in the early 20th century (Princess Patricia of Connaught) did ask to give up her royal status when she married, and on the off chance Eugenie wanted to do that, she'd become Lady Eugenie Brooksbank.

I'm glad if Eugenie keeps her title.
I wonder if they will have an active role within the BRF?

As I understand Eugenie is not particularly active at present and if that continues she will first and foremost be Mrs. Brooksbank, who happens also to be Princess Eugenie, - if you understand my meaning.
