Princess Eugenie's Wedding Prep Included a Massive Hair Change

But this royal wedding brings up a "genuine debate" about Britain's royal family, said BBC News' Simon Bates.

All eyes will be on Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tonightas they make their way out of St George's Chapel as man and wife.

Eugenie, 28, younger daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, will marry Brooksbank, 32, at the queen's Windsor Castle home, west of London.

While there's been prolific speculation as to what Eugenie's wedding dress will look like, fans are also keen to see what the mother of the bride wears.

If you've been jonesing for more royal weddings since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle famously tied the knot back in May, then you're in luck.




Further details of Eugenie and Jack's big day have emerged as it draws near, with the world-famous Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli set to perform at the ceremony. They will also have Prince George and Princess Charlotte in their wedding party and even some of the same guests like George and Amal Clooney. The Rev. David Connor, the dean of Windsor, will give the address, while American Bishop Michael Curry spoke at Harry and Meghan's wedding.

Eugenie and Jack have shared family photographs from their childhood on the eve of their wedding.

She studied English, politics and history of art at Newcastle University - graduating with a 2:1 - and is now an associate director at contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth in central London. The couple says he got down on one knee and proposed in January during a trip to Nicaragua while the couple was visiting a spectacular lake next to a volcano.

The royal family is paying for the wedding, but the anti-monarchist group Republic is lobbying Parliament to prevent any public money from being spent on security or other wedding-related costs.

Art-loving Eugenie (pronounced YOO-juh-nee, not you-JAY-nee, but she's said she's "used to every pronunciation") is the Queen's granddaughter and is ninth in line to the throne. "But there's something different about Friday's royal wedding, and people aren't happy".
