At the time of her wedding Princess Alexandra was a senior working royal and one of the most high-profile and popular members of the family.

The order of service for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle:

The order of service was taken from from the Church of England's Common Worship text.

Even though it is the normal order of service for weddings in the Church of England since 2000, the Common Worship marriage rite has only been used this once in a televised British royal wedding. The weddings of Prince William and Kate Middleton and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank used the alternative "Series One" marriage service.

3. Giving away the bride is optional in the default service, but it is mandatory in the alternative service.
Correction: Both services give the bride a choice to vow or not to vow to obey her husband, so this has been a decision faced by every royal bride who has married since 1963. (Grooms have so far not been given the option of vowing to obey their wives.)

Remember Edward and Sophie had married in Windsor June 1999, the last big royal wedding. I think times have moved on from every member of the RF being able to have a London - WA - wedding. Such a wedding in a high profile place in the middle of London required much more security and logistics than ever before. I was surprised tbh that Beatrice had planned a wedding at St James but then it is very close to Buckingham Palace and many of the family could walk fro their St James' apartments to the Chapel and others driven the short distance from BP to St James. I think Westminster Abbey weddings are now reserved pretty much or direct heirs. Given that according to a number of sources Harry and Meghan had already planned on moving from the UK, taking on commercial ventures, worried about privacy etc I'm not surprised a Windsor wedding was planned.
