Congratulations to the engaged couple !

Congratulations Eugenie and Jack! Why should they marry at Windsor? Peter Phillips did!

Jack's parents, Nicola and George Brooksbank, said: "We could not be more delighted with the news of the engagement. We are completely over the moon and are very excited for them both."

Congrats to the happy couple !!!

The point is not that Eugenie shouldn’t marry at Windsor after all Peter got married there .
But that looking at the popularity levels and the future role for about 15-20 years than Prince Harry should have gotten married at Westminster Abbey . He is a full time working royal so will his wife be unlike Eugenie and Peter Philips .

Peter married at St George's as did Lady Helen Windsor - daughter of the Duke of Kent.

The marriage won't be televised I suspect - more in keeping with Peter's and Zara's in that respect - but St George's is the local church to her home at Royal Lodge.

The Queen probably knew this was on the cards already when she made her Christmas address about 'new additions'. Everyone assumed she only meant Meghan and the new Cambridge baby but now there will be four new additions - Zara's baby and Jack.

Makes me feel sorry for Beatrice who has to sit back and watch all of her adult cousins and sister find happiness and family life while she is apparently unattached. I fear she will rush into a marriage just to feel 'one of the gang' again but I do hope she concentrates on building her business and let's love find her rather than go chasing it. This will be a poignant time for her - happiness for her sister and cousin and sadness when Dave marries someone else.

Eugenie is the Queen’s granddaughter. Harry is her grandson - there is no difference. Not only did Peter marry there, Lady Helen Windsor also did. Popularity has got nothing at all to do with where anyone gets married. It’s to do with where they want the ceremony. Zara chose Scotland, Peter, Harry and Eugenie have chosen Windsor.

It’s lovely news. I’m looking forward to the wedding.

Yes, but Peter Phillips got married in 2008 before the current trend to scale down the monarchy really took off. Harry's marrying at St George's rather than the Abbey is already part of that scaling down; by logical implication, if the same "one-notch down rule" were applied to Eugenie, her wedding should be more like Zara's, which was my point.

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.
