That was my understanding with the Sussexes, yes, and I would expect that the Cambridges had something similar. Much more discreet that way.

The registry being reported on is not available to the public, the registry information was sent to invited guests. We know about Eugenie and Jack's registry because information about the registry was leaked to the public as was the information about the registry that the Sussexes had.

Sussex's registry was not on the invitation for all the guests. They asked guests to donate to the charities. That was not made available for everyone, and items were so limited that only a small number of people would have the opportunity to buy something. Not enough for 600. And certainly didn't tell people to send presents to KP. I haven't read the entire article, but I'm assuming if it's on the invitation, it's an extensive list.

Both couples are working members of the BRF, this couple are not, and will not..
It is absolutely usual and acceptable that ANY young couple [be they ever so 'well heeled'] should 'have a list' for their Wedding.

Suggesting otherwise is merely an attempt to 'make mischief'...

The Press however have already pointed out the contrast with the other couples, and I agree with another poster upthread that this isn't very good optics, especially when criticisms about costs have been made.

If they didn't choose to make this a royal wedding and done in a way that'll cost millions to the public, that'd be different. But that's not what they chose.

But isn't security a government issue? Was it solely the decision of the couple to have this public carriage ride?

While it was the idea of the Cambridges and Sussexes not to accept wedding gifts, I don't hold it against Eugenie and Jack that they choose differently.

The Cambridges and Sussexes also had a registry, so I'm not sure why it's a big deal that Eugenie and Jack registered for gifts.

Prince Philip had an engagement at Windsor Castle yesterday, so I think it's safe to say that he will show up for the wedding.

To me it's normal that guests at a wedding give gifts to the bride and groom.

Neither do I.

But, I will hold it against them, if they do the tacky thing and sell pictures to Hello! or People.

This has bad optics written all over it.
Why?

Most couples have a bridal registry--people attending a wedding like knowing what sorts of things are wanted so they can give a gift that will be appreciated. Jack & Eugenie are not soliciting gifts from random people.

Can anyone tell me what time the wedding will take place? I'm not sure if I've missed the wedding program or if they haven't sent one out. I'll be at work so need an idea when to pop on line and see bits of the wedding :)

The wedding starts at 11 am (BST). The royal family starts arriving at 10 am.

Here's a handy schedule that breaks everything down by time zones.

Registry info was not on Eugenie and Jack's wedding invitations either. The soon-to-be Sussexes put out a statement in April that had the following, "The couple have therefore asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion considers making a donation to charity, rather than sending a wedding gift." Then a month later, the Sunday Times revealed what quite a few media outlets referred to as a "secret" wedding registry that was set up with Soho House. Personally I do not think that's a big deal but if I was going to give anyone the side-eye over their registry tactics it would be the Sussexes.

I've been to many weddings (more than 30 if I count correctly; massive, but my parents always had too many friends/big family), and we've always given the bride and groom a gift. What changed through the years was the type of gift, before it was things that the couple needed for their new home, but nowadays the gift is money since it's more practical. I don't know about the UK, but I see nothing wrong with Eugenie and Jack receiving gifts from the guests, for me it's a normal thing to do.


Glad my time zone matches with the UK, I'm gonna watch the wedding, hopefully, on TV.

Zara gave birth 4 weeks later but was 8 1/2 months pregnant according to Mike. So at that time she expected to give birth earlier...

Another big difference is that in Zara's case it was her cousin while Pippa is just a friend or acquaintance of the bride. And in Madeleine's case it was her brother, so I wouldn't expect someone to go to the same length for a not-too-close friend compared to a close relative.

I've set my alarm for the wedding tomorrow - I have a free day so I can spend it completely enjoying the celebrations. Can't wait!

I'm very much looking forward to the wedding...Eugenie is lovely and it would appear that this will be a lovely and family oriented wedding. I absolutely love that she's included all of the children along with Louise and James. Clearly she's put a lot of thought into her wedding party and wanted very much to include everyone, even going so far as to make the Wessex children "special attendants" in order to include them. While Louise was a part of the Cambridge wedding party, to the best of my knowledge James has not been included in a wedding party before (at least one that we know of) and given how clearly happy he was to be allowed to attend Harry and Meghan's wedding I think it's very sweet that Eugenie has made a special role for him. I was struck last Easter at how she seemed to pay a bit of special attention to James outside the church and I think now we may be seeing that Eugenie is indeed closer to the children in her family than we may have realized previously.

I very much get the feeling that should the children behave like...well...like children with the giggles and the waves, that Eugenie will smile, laugh, and enjoy it rather than being anxious for them to behave like small adults. It would seem that she's planned a relaxed, personal, and non-stuffy wedding. I think we'll probably see an awful lot of genuine smiles and family laughs tomorrow.

Why would Eugenie not be allowed to invite her royal friends whose weddings she attended (most recently in Lima) just because she happens to 9th in line to the throne? It has nothing to do with it being Andrew and Sarah's party. On the contrary, inviting those younger foreign royals shows it is truly her wedding.
