Where?

The service will begin at 11 am at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. It is expected to last one hour, followed by a short procession ride through the streets of Windsor.

The Dean of Windsor, David Conner, will marry the couple while the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, will lead the prayers. Conner, told reporters that the future newlyweds are “the perfect couple,” explaining that, “They come across as just the perfect couple…very natural with each other, they obviously love one another, but they also have a lot of fun together and it’s been a real pleasure to work with them.”

He added that the ceremony will “[be a mix of traditional and modern and is obviously going to be a grand occasion, but I hope also it will have an air of intimacy about it. You just have to remember it’s their day and really do your very best to focus on them and not on the hundreds of famous and semi-famous people who will be around.”

There is an estimated 800 guests that will be in attendance.

What will she wear?

The wedding dress reveal is a pivotal moment of any royal wedding, yet the princess has been coy about her dress details. In an interview on “The One Show” in January, Princess Eugenie said she had not yet decided on the type of dress she wanted, however, she did tell British Vogue that “I’m not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer.”

The Party

In true royal style, there will be two events held after the ceremony on Friday. The Queen is expected to host a champagne reception at Windsor Castle during the afternoon. 400 lucky selected guests will be invited to attend an evening event hosted by the princess’ parents.

Happily Ever After

Once the celebrations have ended, the couple will move into Ivy Cottage, a three-bedroom home at Kensington Palace, where they will be neighbors to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the newly married Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Will you be watching? We wish Princess Eugenie best wishes and a fairytale, happily ever after as she begins life with her new husband!
