Princess Eugenie is married!
The youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson married Jack Brooksbank at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on Friday. The venue is the same location where Eugenie's cousin Prince Harry tied the knot with Meghan Markle just five months ago. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were in attendance at Eugenie's nuptials on Friday, arriving alongside fellow royal attendees like Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Eugenie chose a stunning Peter Pilotto dress for the ceremony, where she walked down the aisle with her father, Prince Andrew. Now that the ceremony is over, we're learning more details about Eugenie's wedding day, including her bouquet.
Eugenie's bouquet was created by floral designer Rob Van Helden's sister, Patrice Van Helden Oakes, and consists of Lily of the Valley, Stephanotis pips, hints of baby blue thistles, white spray roses and trailing ivy. The bouquet also includes sprigs of myrtle from Osbourne House.
According to the official royal website, many royal brides over generations—including Queen Elizabeth II, the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex—have chosen to include myrtle in their bouquets, which represents love, innocence and fertility.
This royal tradition dates all the back to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's daughter Victoria's wedding in 1858.
Eugenie, 28, and Jack, 32, announced their engagement in Jan. 2018 after eight years together. The duo were introduced by mutual friends during a skiing trip to Switzerland in 2010. Jack proposed to Eugenie while on vacation in Nicaragua in early 2018 with a pale pink padparadscha sapphire and diamond ring.
Weeks later, the couple opened up about their relationship in their first joint interview on BBC's The One Show With Matt Baker. During the interview, Eugenie said it was love at first sight, sharing, "We fell in love and we have the same passions and drive for life."
Jack also dished about Eugenie's engagement ring during the interview, saying, "I went and found an amazing padparadscha sapphire, but then didn't want to do anything until Eugenie had signed off on it."
