I do think the possibility of the wedding being streamed is a more likely option rather than having the "big" networks covering it. Either way, its fine with me.
I can see BBC America and maybe PBS carrying some of it. There might be a special of highlights on a network.

I understand Thomas, Jack's brother has also got engaged. So I expect they will be best man to each other. I know Sarah had Apricot dresses for her Bridesmaids, and Princess Margaret Lemon dresses. I do hope white is not chosen. Lilac would be nice!

I think deeper colors would be better for an October wedding.
Perhaps plum or berry?
I'd even like copper or bronze.

Drips and drabs are coming out about Eugenie and Jack's wedding but not as saturated as with the Cambridges and the Sussexes. DM hardly talks about it. Whether the wedding will be televised is still debated:

ps://www.ibtimes.com/princess-eugenie-jack-brooksbanks-royal-wedding-will-be-televised-reason-2708322

No news if the invitations have been sent yet (it should be around this time) or how Eugenie is going to the church. Would she go by carriage, like the Scottish State Coach, because her mother Fergie went to the church by coach and that Eugenie is a blood princess?

The reception - it may be outside

https://www.news.com.au/entertainmen...6b43164c09a03b

Not only the weather but the paps with long range lenses that get shots from the reception.

Security is still an issue

ttps://www.express.co.uk/life-style/life/1009356/princess-eugenie-wedding-meghan-markle-kate-middleton-cost-latest-news

Eugenie is ninth in line to the throne. I would think the scale would be smaller but claiming Andrew wants a big blowout is making him father-of-the-bridezilla.

I would think the invitations have gone out--my niece is getting married the same weekend and we got our invite 10 days or so ago.

I think Eugenie will ride in a car to the wedding from Royal Lodge. Depends upon how her grandmother feels about it though.

Wouldn't that be dadzilla of the bride, if even true? I don't picture Eugenie as a bridezilla.

TALK OF THE TOWN: You're invited to the wedding of Eugenie and Jack... by Nelson Mandela | Daily Mail Online

The first batch of wedding invites already went out and were received by guests on August 3rd.

We have some pictures of what it looks like in the article linked and how the invite includes a quote from Nelson Mandela.

Wow I love this article, and no, it's not one of those generic and copy/paste pieces but one that seems thoughtful and aware.

While Andrew and Fergie still keep it civil there is still bad family blood between Fergie and Philip. If Fergie still has to leave Balmoral one hour before Philip arrives the hatchet hasn't been buried despite Fergie's presence at the Sussex wedding. If the wedding is televised I don't want to see split screens of Fergie and Philip during the broadcast. The press treats Fergie as a lock for a good royal scandal.

It's a good analysis that is a bit let down at the end by some dodgy math ("Half a century ago she would’ve been cosseted in castles and expected to do little more than embroider and play the pianoforte." --- ummm, tell that to the Princess Royal, who graduated exactly 50 years ago with six GCE O-Levels and two A-Levels).

Which is not enough to go to university in the UK, so the Princess Royal never finished her formal education at the post-secondary level. Are Beatrice and Eugenie the first princesses of the blood in the UK to have university degrees ?

I think so, yes. Alexandra was the first British princess to attend a boarding school and trained as a nurse at Great Ormond Street.

My point was that, even if you go back a century, British princesses were expected to do more than "embroider and play the pianoforte" -- Queen Mary's "We are never tired and we love hospitals".

Eugenie and her sister Beatrice aren't as famous or well known/popular as the Cambridges or Sussexes are, despite them being in a relatively high place in the line of succession. And now that the Cambridges have children and the Sussexes will probably have children in the future, there's less interest of Beatrice and Eugenie from the general public. I think it's only really those who are interested in royals like us who know of them (I guess some members of the general public will have a vague idea of who they are but won't be interested) or those who are involved in the same charity organisations as them etc (e.g. I had a classmate at secondary school who was very into horse riding and show jumping and only knew of Princess Anne and Zara Tindall through their shared love of horses - she has friends at her stables who have competed with Zara and taken part in trials that Anne and her family have attended).
As a Brit I'm not surprised that her wedding isn't garnering as much interest as her Sussex cousins.

I looked at the invitations and I am struck by two things. The dual monograms, E and J interwined, no coronet. That could have been the sign Jack was not going to get HRH or a title. And there is no badge or symbol of the Duke of York on the invitations. Charles' Prince of Wales feathers were on Harry and Meghans wedding invitation. It could be why there is complaint about the ssecurity costs - no trappings of royalty. It looks like a regular wedding.

I think the interest will pick up now that is it a month out but it is just a fact they are not as and popular as the Cambridges and Sussexes. That is not their fault.

As for it being televised, I kind of hope it is in the UK but not expecting it. It seems they at least want camera inside for some footage even if not live.

Anyways, details should be coming out more frequently now. Really looking forward to this. Crazy it is already September. I remember thinking it was such a long ways and now its already here.

Since it was mentioned that you had to send your acceptance to the Lord Chamberlain at BP, I assume the Duke of York's invitation and the formalities are on the inside of the card. It would be weird if there was no information at all about the date and time. Anyways we will probably get more official info later in the month. The next I'm expecting is time of the ceremony and events of the day.

Perhaps if the wedding isn’t televised in many countries, it might be streamed so we can watch online in real-time or later? Perhaps we’ll find out more soon as the special day is almost here.

There was never any chance or expectation that Jack would become an HRH and almost no chance of a title.

Thanks for sharing. It's a very nice article, except for the several occasions where the writer ends up comparing Meghan's wedding to Eugenie's, exactly the thing the writer purports to be trying to minimize and defuse.

Of course he was nevr going to become an HRH. Its completely unprecedented. I can't believe anyone would think he was going to, or to get a title. Why should he?

of course they're not popular. And I think that the whole Meghan and harry wedding, while not as grand as it woud have been in the past, was big enough and fussed about enough in the media, to bore people and get them fed up with Royal weddings for the present.. and to gripe about the cost rather than take any interest... I don't believe there will be any general interest.... just from non British and from the small number who will follow any royal couple...
