Just to mention that this engagement, if it is that which I assume it is, is not listed in the CC. The Duke of Kent is the only one listed to have an engagement that day in the evening.

The absence of the Duchess of Cornwall is regrettable, but 'duty before pleasure', since HRH has a long planned prior engagement, and isn't keen on 'letting people down'..
Waiting for the other shoe to drop usually means that one negative thing has happened and there will inevitably be another - or more - to follow.

The CC won't have the engagement yet as they only list events after they occur.

The Future Engagements lists some upcoming events but rarely for the Wales or York branches of the family.

The FE lists the Duke of Kent because his engagements are listed there. To find out upcoming events for Charles, Camilla, the Cambridges, Sussexes or Andrew you have to look elsewhere and even then they don't publish much in advance.

Currently Charles has nothing listed in the FE for the rest of the year although Camilla has two - the Man Booker Prize and holding a Reception on behalf of HM. No mention in the FE of their upcoming tour to Africa for instance.

The FE also lists no engagements for Harry or Meghan for the rest of the year and yet we know they have a tour to the Pacific starting in less than two weeks.

William and Kate have one engagement in the FE on the British monarchy website for the rest of the year while Andrew has none listed there.

No one believes that these 7 most senior royals after the Queen will do four engagements between now and the end of December but that is what the FE is saying.

Meanwhile the Duke of Kent has 10 listed.

In the same time period Edward has 47 and Anne over 70 with a tour to Chile listed from the 27th November to 2nd December.

On the Clarence House website there are three engagements listed for Camilla but still nothing for Charles for the rest of the year.

Do not rely on the Future Engagements page of the British monarchy website for upcoming engagements for Charles, Camilla, William, Kate, Harry, Meghan or Andrew as they simply don't give their information to BP to put up. They also don't always publish on their own sites either.

Leave it to the British press to frame it negatively. While in every other country the press would simply report that a royal wants to honour a previously made engagement, in the rags it is immediately put down as "a snub". Pffff.

Is it just a "snub" or a more troubling sign of a shift in Camilla's status within the RF ? The tabloids and fake news sites will have a blast with her absence.

The Weather forecast isn't great, but is so notoriously changeable in England [especially in Autumn] that it could easily change between now and next Friday..

IMO, there is no snub and if there is anything pointing towards a shift within the royal family, it would be that Camilla is exhibiting putting duty before anything else and, to me, that's a good sign for a future Queen Consort.

Of course the tabloids and fake news will have a blast with it. It would be too hard for them to pass up.

I wonder if Camilla will miss the ceremony, but be at the night time reception?

There is, but the reporting on this is a no for Camilla on all subsequent wedding events as well.

ETA: now that I read it, it doesn’t specify. But Emily Andrew’s tweeted that she’s a no for the receptions as well.

It's a sign of neither, Camilla has promised herself to this event and to her word she's going. Eugenie clearly understands.

Yes, one on Friday and there is a private event on Saturday which I imagine if she can attend she will.

If true, and if you read the text, Camilla responded early that the date was one for which she was unavailable. And it reads as if that info was shared at the time the family was searching around for a date that worked best for the whole family.

If true, that headline could just as validly say "Camilla snubbed by choice of wedding date." Because it would be Camilla's unavailability that was ignored.
And don't lets move this discussion much more onto Camilla, because it is off topic.

I am sure she will be sending a lovely gift, even if she cannot attend. Which is much more than many step-aunts do in many families.

Eug and Jack are going to be such a handsome couple! That's my speculation and I am sticking to it!

Royal.uk has the following for Eugenie's wedding:
Quote:
Following the carriage procession, The Queen will give a Reception at Windsor Castle for the couple and their wedding guests.
Royal.uk had the following for Harry's wedding:
Quote:
Following the service, there will be a reception at St George's Hall for the couple and guests from the congregation. The couple will join this on return from the Carriage Procession.

Later that evening, The Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family.
This, along with the reports of the Saturday event, is why I am not sure if there will be an evening event.

ETA:
Since the engagement announcement there have been reports that Andrew will be hosting an evening event at the Royal Lodge but that seems to be educated guessing being presented as fact like the reporting on who will be in the wedding party.

There could be an evening event but seems odd when they are throwing a big party the next day. Might be overkill. But either way, they can do what they want!

Oh I agree with you 100%. There are just some people in this sorry world that love a scandal and will invent one at any cost if one doesn't exist. It was known Camilla had a prior, period. I am sure the wedding couple knew and might be sorry but certainly not important enough to change the date. It was already stated somewhere that the couple changed their original date due to Harry and Meghan's wedding. Enough is enough. An uncle's second marriage partner is just not that important [no matter who they are] to disrupt their special day. It is their wedding and no one else should matter. JMHO

Do you think Charles will arrive in a car by himself or will he walk with the rest of the family as a lot of the royal family did at Harry’s wedding?

It may have to do with the fact they are getting married on a Friday. Instead of having all three events on the same day like her cousins, hers is two days. Eugenie has also spent a lot of time at weddings on the continent and a wedding weekend is the norm. It is similar to Zara, who had a dinner cruise, but Zara had it the night before the wedding.

If the weather is predicting rain for the wedding what is plan B for the carriage ride? They have not stated what carriage is being used. And the military details - Jack had not served but he is getting military flourishes because of his grandfather's service. I find it oft putting. Military for Eugenie and she didn't serve but because of Andrew? Andrea Bocelli singing - nice but I didn't know E & J are opera fans. Sarah putting in a hymn to honor Diana - did the couple want it in? It is sounding more like Andrew and Sarah's remarriage ceremony.

Like many other brides have done, Eugenie probably went along with some of her parents' suggestions, in order to keep the peace.

Where does it say anywhere about the hymn to honour Diana....
