I doubt the lack of interest in Eugenieís wedding has anything to do with the Sussex wedding. Letís face it, media would only continue to report if it is selling copies or generating clicks. And the ratings for the Sussex wedding certainly proved that people arenít bored or fed up. Eugenie simply doesnít generate nearly as much attention. And honestly, I doubt there would be much attention from non British media as various reporters have said they often have to remind people who Eugenie is. Most of the attention will be in UK.

Of course H and Meg got a fair amount of attention as they are senior royals, HE is fairly popular and she's either liked or very much disliked...
but even so, I think a lot of the public, judging by people I've talked to, felt the Sussex wedding was "enough" and they are not in the mood for paying any attention to a royal who is harldy known at all and who is unfortunately not liked because of her parents

It could be why there is complaint about the ssecurity costs - no trappings of royalty. It looks like a regular wedding.

Getting HRH was never on the table for Jack. The only remote possibility available to him would be a peerage, which, as I said before, would be perfectly reasonable IMHO. Unfortunately, given the current social and political circumstances, he will most likely remain Mr Jack Brooksbank.

Since there are no hereditary peerages being given out any more, I cannot understand why anyone would think he'd get one..

Sarah is apparently trying to use Eugenie's wedding to stage a comeback

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.van...l-comeback/amp

Vanity Fair did Fergie no favors. Reporting that she is working with designers to come up with killer outfits for the wedding and reception, bringing in the glittering guests, working on the events. Although Eugenie wants Fergie active in the wedding, Fergie is getting close to look like she's trying to outdo the bride.

Eugenie and Jack's wedding is definitely going to be a York family affair. This is what happens when a couple have "the happiest divorce on Earth". I would be very surprised if Sarah wasn't totally and completely involved in every aspect of this wedding along with Andrew. We know both parents are close with their daughters.

Of course the article had to mention the DoE and his antipathy for Sarah. In regards to this wedding, I see no reason why Philip, being the well bred gentleman he is, wouldn't handle being in close proximity to Sarah during the wedding ceremony with dignity, grace and aplomb. If the media is going to be looking for glares and stares, I think they'll be sorely disappointed.

Everyone wants the best for Eugenie and Jack and that is what will matter.

Philip was at his grandson's wedding a little over a month after he left the hospital after his surgery.

He sat across in the quire along with Sarah for his grandson's wedding. I can't imagine he won't do the same for his granddaughter.

My reaction was that this article, which is from late June by the way, is that the article is not even Daily Mail caliber, it is more OK Magazine. I am not a royal reporter nor do I have inside sources and I could have written the same article.

Basically Sarah, Duchess of York, is acting like many other mothers of the bride - she wants to wear nice dresses and she has input on the guest list and other aspects of the wedding.

It is incorrect to say that Sarah is using Eugenie's wedding to stage a comeback, rather the comeback is that Sarah and her past and her relationships with members of the BRF will be tabloid fodder, so in addition to discussing Eugenie's dress, what others are wearing, cute children in the bridal party, the music, the ambience, etc., we will also be treated to commentary on Sarah getting a good seat at her daughter's wedding (gasp) and her proximity to the Queen and Prince Philip.

I think Sarah will be made to sit with the Fergusons if Phillip shows up. If anything goes wonky I fear Sarah will wild out and the focus will be on her and not Eugenie and Jack. Dignified silence is not in her I'm afraid.

This is her daughters wedding and Sarah will have a front row seat, as it should be.

The only way things would go wonky is if Prince Philip made a scene and we know he’s not going to do that on his granddaughters wedding day.

Eugenie and Jack: Wedding Suggestions and Musings Thread

I’m begging the moderator to control this conversation. This is just a bunch of Andrew hating fear mongers baiting everyone else. No one has ever said that Philip won’t attend. They both attended Harry’s wedding. Philip loves his grandchildren and won’t do anything to embarrass Eugenie in her big day.

I have seen Sarah do things that are considered indecorous but big whoop if Sarah shows up in a fashion don't outfit, makes funny faces and/or gesticulates wildly.

I'm confused - I don't see any posts about Andrew, all I see are a few musings whether Phillip's well known antipathy towards Sarah will effect seating at Eugenie's wedding. I suppose the best guidance would be where Peter Phillip's father sat vis a viz. the rest of the Royal family during his wedding to Autumn at Windsor since Mark and Anne are divorced just as Sarah and Andrew are. Unfortunately, I can't locate any pix which show the seating arrangements.
Wasn't Peter's the wedding which William missed (although Catherine attended?) Thus it's not unheard of for a family member to miss a wedding for 'other commitments.'

The world didn’t come to an end back in May when Sarah and Philip were in the same church. Can’t see it being any different for Eugenie’s big day.

I'd say missing your cousin's wedding (to be able to attend a different wedding IIRC) is different from not attending your granddaughter's wedding (that is held at the chapel in your own castle).

Given his advanced age and possible health issues, it is possible that Prince Philip will miss the wedding. He didn't attend Trooping the Colour this year and has made few public appearances.

Yes he has had surgery, and he's made good recovery but he's old and ill, and he may not feel up to another wedding.. Im sure he wishes Eugenie well... but he is certain to tire easily at his age...

Given that within this past week we've seen pictures of Philip out driving around the Balmoral estate and looking in great shape, this is a man that likes to stay active and the antithesis of a couch potato. This is his granddaughter's wedding and I don't see him missing it.

I agree, I was just pointing out that it has happened, and I've read that Peter and William were particularly close.
I expect if he's able physically that Phillip will attend because he's a no nonsense sort of fellow and wouldn't let being in proximity to the bride's mother for a brief period of time stop him from attending his granddaughter's wedding. After all through the years I'm sure he and the Queen have met some truly abhorrent people at the behest of the government and managed to be civil, in comparison being civil to Sarah, even if he thinks her a fool, will be easy for him, IMO.
If he's unable to attend due to his health, Eugenie will be far more aware of the true state of her grandfather's health than we outsiders will be and will likely be less concerned about his absence than certain tabloids would be.
