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.

This . I don't understand the issue here . No doubt the Cambridges and Sussexes received gifts from friends and family . Eugenie isn't hanging a giant list on the gates of Buckingham Palace telling John and Jane Smith to buy her something .

I remember that Charles and Diana received 23 yes Twenty Three silver toast racks as wedding gifts. Among the many thousands of gifts they received.
I doubt anyone uses a toast rack anymore.

Anyway looking forward to watching from 7.30 pm here.

We’re ready! Tomorrow is going to be splendid. @GrenadierGds and @2_SCOTS will give of their best to make their Colonel @TheDukeOfYork and the nation proud. And @BandHCav has a very special fanfare for the bride...

Nice to see how citizen invites look ! He's basically saying how a friend (Guessing the friend is from the UK.)and him had applied for wedding invites. How he is so excited to see a royal wedding, he's from Mexico.

Yay!, they are using their full names during the vows. Also, unless I read this wrong, they are stopping at the entrance of the Quire and than will process to the altar, like what was done at Edward and Sophie's wedding.

This wedding is already giving me the same vibes that I get when watching Princess Alexandra's.

ETA: Oh Lord, please don't tell me that's Ave Maria I see being sung by Mr. Bocelli!

Who is "Mr Peter Roper-Curzon, a member of the Bride’s family"? Is he a maternal family member - who will play the organ (next to the St George's organists)?

Jack's parents and Sarah and Beatrice as close family members enter via de West Door while the (other) members of the royal family use the Galilee porch. And while people have to stand for all other member of the family, they are not supposed to stand when Beatrice enters because she enters with her mother...

In addition, there is a gap of 15 minutes between the bridegroom arriving and the prince of Wales arriving; apparently they are to listen to the organ music while waiting for the two (or three) most senior members of the family to arrive - and for the bride and her father to arrive 10/8 minutes later.

And it looks like there will be no ring for Jack...

Looks like Jack won't be wearing a wedding ring.

Did Harry and Meghan use their full names for their vows?

Oh I have nothing against it personally, I love the song. I just know it will be used as another angle to say Eugenie is copying Harry and Meghan because the piece was used at their wedding, and I'm so tired of all these comparisons.
