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.

You're entitled to your opinion but I believe her proud parents & grandparents simply want to give her a proper wedding & proper royal weddings involve money and publicity. No ulterior motives.

TLC will broadcast it live starting at 3:30 a.m. Central Time and will rebroadcast it at 6:30 a.m. You can also watch it live on the Duke of York's YouTube channel.

She is not getting married at Westminster Abbey nor taking a long carriage ride like the Sussexes, so I don't see how it can be construed as trying to be as important as the Wales boys. Eugenie doesn't strike me at all as someone who would try to do so. She is, however, a princess and as such a royal wedding is to be expected.

The second day is private party and therefore completely irrelevant - other than that their foreign guests willmost likely appreciate another opportunity to spend some time with the couple - as Eugenie herself experienced at many of their weddings.

Again, it would be very unkind to forbid friends of the couple and family to attend just because they happen to be famous. And imo it is really thoughtful to include some references to Jack's family. Most details already point to the bride and her family, so well done to include the Scots Guards as well.

Jack's great-grandfather & namesake was also an equerry and favorite of Queen Mary's so this might also be a nod to his connection to the royal family.

He is both family and a bit if a well known organist. He is the son of the 20th Baron Teynham. His maternal grandmother Patricia was born Patricua Montagu Scott. She was the sister of Sarah's grandmother Marian. Patricia was countess of Dundee by her third marriage. Peters mother was her daughter from her second marriage. Their father Herbert was the uncle of Princess Alice.

He won some music competitions. And seems to have performed at a few upper class weddings.

Once again, this is not about the Cambridge or Sussex weddings. Nor is it about the jobs Beatrice and Eugenie have held. Let’s stick to the topic, please.

Lol! It's 3am in London! I suspect many of our British posters are fast asleep....but

It's 8 hours until we see Princess Eugenie.

This wedding is special as it's the first Royal Princess from the UK that is getting married in my lifetime. Princess Anne was married 4 years before I was born.

A Princess who is in-line to become a Counsellor of State under Charles' reign, as it appears Beatrice has made NYC her home, indefinitely. I mean, Edward was 7th in-line, with no plans to be a working royal, when he had his St. George's wedding. So 9th in-line Eugenie, who could be a CoS in her future, getting a similar wedding to Edward, really isn't all that surprising.

Cousin not uncle. George has only one sibling, his brother David. David had three kids according to peerage page. His middle is a son Charles.

And your point is what? This is the kind of wedding many of Eugenie's friends have had--why is there a problem? This is not a competition.

Agreed on her friends.

And not really twice as long either. Harry and Meghan had two receptions all in one day. Eugenie and Jack are having the wedding and lunch reception one day and the evening reception another day. Zara did the same though in flip thought having a boat cruise the night before.

They may have chosen to do so because she is used to the weekend wedding on the continent with friends. Or because the wedding is on a Friday. It's possible some of their friends may be unable to make the ceremony because it's a work day. May allow some guests to attend Saturday that couldn't make ceremony.

The figures provided in the article are the costs of the previous royal weddings, which were larger in scale.

Quote:
Not long after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's big day, Thames Valley's police and crime commissioner, Anthony Stansfeld, told the BBC that the estimated cost of policing their wedding was "between £2m and £4m".

We also know that £6.35m was spent by the Metropolitan Police Service on security for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton back in 2011 - that's based on a Freedom of Information request released to the Press Association.

We asked Mr Stansfeld's office to provide a similar estimate for Princess Eugenie's ceremony - but we were told this wouldn't be possible "until it has concluded".

Eugenie's wedding is expected to attract a smaller crowd and there will also be a considerably shorter carriage ride.

The BBC understands that logically, the cost to Thames Valley Police should be lower than that of Prince Harry's wedding - but until all the numbers are crunched they can't say for certain.

And Harry's has been stated as 2-4 mil. Not sure why the 2 mil estimate is so unrealistic. What was unrealistic was the 30+ mil being thrown around before May. Good thing this is happening later, otherwise, God knows what kind of number will be out there.

Anyone who knows anything accurate about the Yorks knows that Eugenie previously worked for an auction house that dealt in art and now for an art gallery. Beatrice is currently VP Partnerships of the Local Leaderships Team in New York for Afiniti. https://www.afiniti.com/offices/new-york


Andrew can spend his money on his daughter's wedding. I don't understand why that is even being questioned.

Just when I was warming to Camilla, now the wedding day has arrived, I'm not OK with the school harvest festival previous engagement as a reason for her not attending.
