She could, but that's highly unlikely given the approach QEII has taken to handing out that honor. For instance, Kate doesn't have the RVO yet, and she's a working royal.

Seems a tad insulting [as though the Princess were some problem to 'offload' ]!

Mr Brooksbank will ONLY get a knighthood IF he [through service & 'good works' deserves one],as Commander Lawrence has..

You missed some promotions in rank
Vice-Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.

I can see Jack being recognized eventually if his business continues to grow successfully, not just for marrying Eugenie.

My original inquiry about Princess Eugenie using the Glass Coach would be only for her to have the Glass Coach bring her to the chapel for her arrival. She and Jack can use the Ascot Landau after the wedding.

They aren't likely to use 2 different carriages for the wedding. Eugenie will most likely arrive by car like other recent brides, and leave by carriage.

All the royal weddings at St George's have used the landau. There is no reason to think they will change that. If the weather is bad, and with a fall wedding that is possible, the Scottish coach is likely to be used. It was stated to be the fall back for Harry and Meghan due to weather.

Besides, it wouldn't make much sense transporting the Glass Coach from the Royal Mews in London to Windsor and then back again just to have the bride arrive in it at St. George's Chapel.

It would either have to be loaded into a vehicle big enough to transport it or roads have to be closed down for it to be drawn by horses between London and Windsor. It just wouldn't be worth it in the long run when they have landaus and the Scottish coach on site and available for use.

I don’t think Peter Phillips used the Ascot Landau. They used a different carriage. That’s also an option for Eugenie.

You're right, they used the balmoral sociable carriage. So I guess there are 2 options, the landau or sociable. Still more likely to be the landau.

The Balmoral is called so as its lined with Balmoral tartan.

Do you think that Princess Eugenie's bouquet will consist of all white flowers?

If she follows royal tradition, yes. British royal brides go all white on flowers.

I am hoping at least in the décor, we will see some beautiful autumn colored flowers.

Even if she does use all white flowers, she could possibly incorporate some colorful leaves and berries; they will be at their best in mid-October.

Yes! I hope so! That's the best thing about autumn weddings other than lack of pollen allergies.

Yes, certainly could add some berries and leaves into the bouquet, so not to break the 'white bouquet flowers'. I do hope the actual flowers in the church and reception are in some colors. And would be nice if there were some photos released, since the wedding wont be filmed. Like on Eugenie's Instagram.

Yes!
Anything like that would be gorgeous.

Jack's father is CEO of some flower company in London, so if anyone has beautiful wedding flowers, it should be Eugenie!

I'm very intrigued on how the Firm/Royal.UK website will go about handling Eugenie's wedding. They handled the engagement almost the same way as they did Harry's; engagement announcement, pictures, and interview. Then we had place and time. There is even a press release for the engagement on the RF website, which in my mind affirms it is a Firm wedding unless this was done for Peter and Zara. So will they create just one page that will give updates on the preparations or nothing at all.

I believe it was handled like Peter Phillips' engagement. It was certainly not handled like Harry's. Harry and Meghan had an engagement photocall the day of. Eugenie and Jack released their engagement photos (equivalent of the Alexi photos for Sussexes). And no sit down interview. I believe the Princess Anne's children both had short interviews at some point during their engagement as well as releasing engagement photos. Obviously, it'll be up to the Duke of York and the couple how much they want to announce, but there is more option to keep it all private here.

I suspect it will be like Peter and Zara's wedding. All the bells and whistles but very downscale in comparison to Harry's. I'm looking forward to it. Nice to know we have another wedding in a few months.

Princess Eugenie and Jack gave an interview on the day of the engagement.
