Also, this is a little off-topic. But I am disappointed Camilla will not attend. I know she has an event. But it would have been lovely to see her. But the main focal point is Eugenie and Jack. So, mazel tov!
The outlets are always looking to take advantage of a situation when they see viewer interest. There really hasn't been much. Even weekly magazines like People haven't had it on the cover (I don't read the actual magazine, so I can't tell you what's in there). So not so much a missed opportunity. Most only remember Beatrice's hat from the wedding. Although it'd be hard for nonroyal followers to actually name which one wore it that day. They might remember the hat if they saw it again.

Pretty much. Harry's would've been covered well because he is well known. But nowhere near how it was covered had he not married a beautiful (reality is this matters when it comes to interest in the wedding) American. It was made into a bigger deal than even the Cambridge wedding was in US.

Interesting article about Eugenie’s cake, apparently red velvet cake originated in Texas thus it’s an ‘American cake’

I Vow To Thee My Country is a very popular hymn in the UK and often used at weddings and funerals. It was used at the funeral of Lord Mountbatten before Diana even married into the Family. It is (or was) sung in schools all the time. The tune being from Holst’s Planet Suite it is also a very popular orchestral piece and has been since it was first written during the First World War.

Eugenie is a Princess of the UK, working or not, the sentiments of the hymn are perfect in that setting.

Oddly enough, not everything in British or Royal life revolves around Diana.

Yup, moist red velvet cakes are scrumptious!

Please note that a number of bickering posts unrelated to the topic have been deleted. This thread is not a platform to bicker about other real weddings or meters of the Royal Family.

Regarding fruitcake, I'm personally glad that's one wedding tradition that didn't make it over to the colonies :)
Yes, I agree. They fit with the seasons.
And both sound delicious.

Weddings are such happy events. If only pre wedding discussion threads could be as happy!

I'm really looking forward to seeing her choice of dress. We are under a hundred hours and counting now!

For Americans, TLC's broadcast, called Royal Wedding Live: Princess Eugenie, will begin at 4:25 a.m. EST on Friday, October 12, and the cable network will air an encore of the broadcast starting at 7:25 a.m. ET.

2 chances to watch plus The Telegraph will have a live stream and of course it’s on ITV.

I've been wondering whether the cake is an indicator of the color scheme for the wedding- dark red tones?

(Though I hope not; I don't think that will look great considering Beatrice has red hair).
Otoh, I am really hoping the bridal party isn't all in white, as I'm rather tired of that.

Australia's Channel 7 is also airing. So another option outside the UK/US.

I am sure all will be uploaded.

I believe Sophie and Edwards's wedding was shown in the US. Why can't Jack and Princess Eugenie?
could it be because noone's interested?

I am! I won't be able to watch the wedding live but I've got my TV set to record TLC's coverage.

But you're correct, Eugenie isn't as well known in the U.S. as the Queen's children & her grandsons William & Harry, so the interest isn't there.

The discussion about tiaras has been moved to 'Princess Eugenie: Wedding Tiara and Jewelry Suggestions and Musings' thread.

Exactly, she is hardly known In the US and is not much thought about in the UK...

It's going to be interesting to see Friday, if Camilla is there or not. The idea that she won't be there is causing quite some upset among some royal watchers.

And rightly so !
It's not rocket science to see that the "previous engagement" thing sounds a bit fishy to say the least.

I don't understand why its "fishy". Andrew himself said after the news of the engagement that they were consulting diaries to find a date that worked for everybody (harder given they chose to marry on a Friday). Obviously they found a date but Camilla already had an event and chose not to cancel an event booked in before the wedding to attend. At the end of the day I doubt Camilla will be crying she is missing it and will send the couple her best wishes and love and Jack and Eugenie will have 800+ other people there to focus on, I'm sure when trying to find a date it was more important Andrew, Sarah, Beatrice, the Queen, Philip, Charles, Edward & Anne could attend rather than Camilla.
Remember William missed Peter & Autumns wedding because he had a prior commitment and that was for his own cousin not just a niece-in-law. I really don't see the fuss and any gossip of anything more untoward is just people trying to create a drama and push an agenda.
On a side note I wonder if they chose the Friday to avoid marrying on Sat 13th Oct.

Possibly. I wouldn't like to get married on the 13th. But it would have been easier to avoid people having engagements if they had made it for another Saturday.
Not that I think there is anything sinister about Camilla not going, Im sure sh'es invited to the party or whatever,the next day...
