It's a private event on private land, nobodies said that the public would be invited nor that the taxpayer would be paying for any security.

Iíll bet it was the idea of the girl who thought having a Snow White-themed 25th
birthday party was a fun idea.

I'd forgotten that. Yes, seems along the same lines, so very much in character.

If the wedding festival is a private event, then no pictures should turn up in a tabloid. I remember the stink raised when Peter and Autumn sold their wedding pictures allegedly for 500,000 dollars.

....i get the feeling that we here possibly obsess more about this wedding than the wedding couple themselves...

Sounds pretty normal to me. Most royal couples have a pre-wedding ball or banquet, followed by the actual wedding the next day. And often a farewell brunch on the day after that to wave goodbye to guests.

It is not private land. It is the residence of The Queen. Wedding or no wedding, there are dozens of security officers anyway. And this happens at all royal residences in the world. In an ideal world there is only the gardener opening the gate. But when in Norway a madman kills teens on a holiday isle, or in the Netherlands a lunatic crashes with his car into a crowd in an attempt to hit the Queen, sadly this is reality anno 2018.

Eugenie cannot help that her wedding needs security. In an ideal world no security was needed and all people would be kind towards each other. Unfortunately that idn't the case, so in the case of gatherings with many royals and other famous people thst requires security as do gatherings of large groups in general.

I believe Lumutqueen was referring to the extravaganza the day after the wedding which will be a private event on private land at Royal Lodge. Although Royal Lodge is part of the Windsor estate, it is also the Duke of York's private home which he has a lease on. I'm sure there will be some kind of security but nothing like the wedding day when the couple wed at St. George's Chapel with a reception to follow at Windsor Castle.

Seating arrangements are coming up. Where will Sarah sit?

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.hel.../%3fviewas=amp

How are they going to work this out? I don't think the BRF wants to send signals Fergie's officially back in the fold by her sitting with the royals but it looks bad if she sits with the Fergesons.

Surely she will sit with the father of the bride as she is the mother. That is what normally happens when the child of divorced parents' marry.

I would hope that The Queen, Philip, Charles etc aren't that petty that they would deny Eugenie the right to have both her parents sitting in the seats normally used by the parents of the bride.

Maybe they will arrange to have Sarah and Andrew have 2 chairs up in the altar area away from the other royals.

About the carriage ride: when Lady Melissa Percy can have one, I fail to see why a princess of the blood royal can not have one...

See picture: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/...67_470x596.jpg

It would surprise me to see the Duke of York and Sarah apart. Everyone knows their marriage did not work but they remained very friendly. It is their daughter. None of both has a partner. No problem to have the couple together, in my book.

Why would people not show up for the wedding?

I think Eugenie's focus at the moment would be more along the lines of her actual upcoming marriage rather than how many people would show up to actually witness her day. I don't see the people that actually entered into the public ballot and winning deciding not to go. If I had an interest in applying to the ballot, I'd be there with bells on if I won at the luck of the draw.

The public lining the roads is just that. The public lining the roads. Whether there are gobs of people or a few onlookers, its not going to detract from Eugenie and Jack's day.

I also expect Andrew and Sarah to be present as a unified couple on their daughter's wedding day. They've been unified parents for their girls for their entire life and they're going to be the unified couple as their daughter marries. I think the royal family will survive quite nicely into the future even if an ex-wife sits with them during a wedding ceremony.

well if she doesn't get a decent crowd, it may not affect her that much but Im sure she'd feel silly about the carriage ride if there are not many of the public taking an interest.
Im sure that the RF can stand Fergie being around for a few hours, just about, now and when Bea marries or when they have kids..

If Eugenie doesn't want the carriage ride why have it? Whose wedding is this anyway? And it would be embarrassing if there is not a decent crowd. The wedding is on Oct. 12th, a Friday and not a bank holiday. Who is taking off from work and going to Windsor to see Eugenie and Jack get married? Trust the press will compare crowds from Harry and Meghan's wedding to the York wedding.

As Windsor Castle and Frogmore House seem to rate the best of tourist attractions as far as the Crown Estates go, there's *always* a pretty good crowd in and around Windsor royal wedding or not. I don't see October as a time of year when things slow down but rather a more comfortable type of weather to go touring in.

I don't think Eugenie and Jack have much to worry about with there being very little people around to witness a carriage ride.
