I was surprised at how well covered Eugenie's wedding was here in England since the average person wouldn't really know who she was. It'll be interesting to see how Beatrice's will do indeed.

Do you think that Edoardo and Princess Beatrice will have a morning wedding or an afternoon wedding?

The ones that will not be are to be those of Louise and James in the distant future; they will be at those moments more "distant" royals - probably nephews of the reigning King (giving that Charles will live as long as his father)
And Beatrice is the direct descendant (granddaughter) of the reigning Queen.
Louise and James are as direct a descendant as Beatrice. They are first cousins and the grandchildren of the reigning queen. Of course, they will not marry next year.

I think that's what Bibi was trying to say.

At the time they marry they are most likely either niece/nephew or first cousin to the than reigning king instead of grandchildren of the reigning queen.

I think royal weddings are always in the morning.

No, from what I remember, Edward and Sophie's was in the afternoon. I watched it around noon in Canada, I think.

Yes, Edward and Sophie did have a noon wedding. I watched it live.

By the time Louise and James marry they probably won't be the grandchildren of the reigning monarch but the niece and nephew so they will be in the same relationship to the reigning monarch as David and Sarah were when they married.

Peter and Zara didn't have televised weddings and they were the grandchildren of the reigning monarch of the day but of course not royal grandchildren and as per the Queen's will nor are Louise and James.

Edward & Sophie’s wedding was at 5pm Windsor time. It was considered unusual for a Royal wedding in Britain. The ladies mostly wore evening gowns/long dresses without hats. The Queen wore a feathery headdress with her evening gown, the Queen Mother wore a day dress with a “proper hat.”

Yes! I remember Edward and Sophie had a "no hats" guideline in their invitations, but the QM was having none of that.

But the men were in morning suit, weren't they ? Shouldn't they be in white tie instead ?

Indeed. It was an odd "hybrid" of the classic Engish wedding and the continental style royal weddings.

Kudos to them for changing it up

More like Scandinavian style royal weddings.
As far as I remember, royal weddings in the Benelux and in Spain are in the morning.

Eugenie's wedding was almost not broadcast at all, the BBC didn't want to and ITV only did when then the "This Morning" programme stepped in to do so. Much of this, I suspect, was to do with the fact that their wedding was on a Friday and most people would have been in work so the expense of sending out a team to report live on it when they would usually be showing news programmes or other pre-recorded shows would have outweighed the number of viewers available. The BBC did show parts of the wedding on its news services, just as they did for Zara and Peter's weddings (although then there were no cameras inside the church).

For ITV, This Morning would have been broadcasting live anyway so it was simply a case of moving to a different location/studio for the morning and making the wedding their show for the day.

This btw isn't be having a go or being down on Eugenie and Beatrice. If Beatrice's wedding is a Saturday morning/afternoon then they may well be more interested in covering it as more people would be off work to tune in.

Not sure how accurate this is!!!! It sounds a bit contradictory. Still, it does rule out any carriage ride.

I swear among other issues (and they have many) The DM seems to suffer from amnesia. While Eugenie's wedding lunch was at the castle, her reception was hosted by her father at Royal Lodge. The same thing being suggested here being considered for Beatrice.

Love that Royal Lodge is being described as 'slightly modest'.


Or the insinuation they are going more modest as they want to hide the shame of a child out of wedlock

Wolfie as best man??? Page boy yes, standing by dad as best man

Oh and I guess Beatrice is getting revenge on Harry and Meghan. The Sussexes upstaged her sister's wedding with a baby announcement. So she purposely tried to upstage their tour with her wedding announcement.

Does the DM ever tire of all this shotty journalism??? Seems not.

What if the wedding occurred in Beverley Minster? Beverley Minster is located in the Province of York.


What if the wedding occurred in Selby Abbey? Selby Abbey is located in Selby, North Yorkshire.

The security costs would rule out anywhere outside of Windsor I think.

At Windsor Castle they can literally shut the entire castle down and not have any public anywhere there if they won't to do so.

There was a lot of criticism of Zara marrying in Edinburgh due to the security costs of shutting down the centre of Edinburgh for the wedding and the same thing would happen if she married anywhere other than at St George's or maybe the Chapel Royal at St James'.

Given the anti-Andrew sentiments at the moment, the reports about the wealth of the BRF coming out (again) and the clear and increasing anti-monarchy stance of many previous pro-monarchy papers (DM, Express in particular) the BRF would be well advised to keep this wedding close to home and spend as little of public money on it as possible. The optics are important and the political situation in the UK could easily turn ugly. While the BRF wouldn't be targeted at the moment an unnecessary show of extravagance could see them become targets rather than being a sideshow to give people some needed entertainment (such as the sheer enjoyment of seeing what total monstrosity Sarah will wear).
