The York family have generated substantial amounts of negative attention for a long time now, for many many different reasons. A low key, non public wedding could have been a unique opportunity to show the family in a more positive light.

Being a princess shouldn't mean wanting attention or publicity or trying to outdo your other relatives with a better wedding. Edward and Sophie (non working royals at the time) are a perfect example of how minor royals can do a wedding.

The order of service was nice read. Looks to be a lovely service. Interesting that Sarah will walk in with Beatrice. I am curious how the little bridal party will work now. Are the mothers walking in with them again like they did for the Sussex wedding?
Do you know the link to the order of service ?

I don't think that Eugenie and Jack's wedding has substantially more bells and whistles that Edward and Sophie's.

You do know that Eugenie and Jacks's wedding is more identical to Edward and Sophie's than Harry and Meghan's. Also, there's the fact that the union in '99 had more coverage, so I guess they are following their example really well .

And who exactly wants attention or publicity or is trying to outdo their other relatives with a better wedding?

Eugenie is an HRH and grandchild of The Queen. She’s deserves every bit of this wedding. Nothing about it is inappropriate.

As has been pointed out, even ‘normal’ Zara, who’s not actually normal with her granny being The Queen, her wedding wasn’t exactly a registry office affair.

There’s always costs involved with royal events and it falls to the state to pay the cost.

Actually, as I see it, its the media and the public that's doing all the comparisons and putting slants on this wedding with gripes and moans and generally making tsunamis in a teacup.

Eugenie and Jack are getting married in a wedding ceremony that will mean something to them. They've tailored the wedding to be exactly how they want it to be, invited whom they want to invite and are making the day memorable for themselves and their friends and family. They are not using this wedding as a PR stunt, a photo op or put any kind of "light" on the family or trying to outdo or outshine or top anyone else.

I'm just going to enjoy the wedding for what it is. A happy occasion that includes a lot of my favorite royal family. I'm sure all of those in attendance in St. George's Chapel will do likewise.

If I remember correctly, Catherine did promise to 'obey' - which is not included in Eugenie's vows.

Prince Andrew wanted the wedding broadcast on the BBC, and the wedding celebrations will last two days, twice as long as H&M.

Catherine didn’t promise to obey but Sophie did.

So? What is your point? Its the way the bride and groom want their wedding weekend to be like. They're entitled to the celebrations of their choice.

Well, there are two 'special attendants' who should be able to take on that task. I am not such a fan of the mothers trying to handle them. In general, I didn't like how the children had such a small role in the Sussex wedding: their mothers walked them into the church. They somewhat joined the bride for her entry in the church (but only when she already was in the church) and walked the couple to the front door again. Only the twins had a proper role and George and Charlotte were at least allowed to join the couple on the stairs (but didn't walk with the other children when walking out - instead joining their parents). Hopefully, this time the bridal party gets a proper role.

I didn't like that version either . It sounded way too casual . Hi we're Harry and Meghan and we're sooo cool and modern . It just didn't fit the place they were getting married at .

No , then people would complain about all the secrecy and how evil Charles/Camilla are trying to hide the poor York girls and how they deserve a big wedding .

Is Charles Brooksbank Jack's uncle, maybe godfather too?

Wedding for TV viewing

I'm sorry if this has already been covered, but I would like to know if TV coverage of the wedding is available in the United States. We have Direct tv and can get most channels. What channel...time? Can anyone help?
Thank you...

Not quite, I believe the reason for wanting the wedding televised is purely for publicity and to be seen as being as important as the Cambridge and Sussex weddings were.

This, together with a two day long wedding celebration, the involvement of the Scots Guards based solely on the link of Jack's great grandfather being in the regiment, fairground rides, insistance on a carriage procession, and a very large number of celebrities in attendance or even performing would, IMO, point to a very big effort to be in the limelight.

I'm not sure if it was Eugenie or Beatrice who was exposed a while back as earning £19k a year for working at a technology company, but one would expect someone who has actually worked in a low paid job in the real world like many of us have done, to have a better understanding and appreciation of the huge expense involved in the whole two days.

So excited for the wedding! My alarm is set for 4 a.m. here on the east coast of the USA.
