Just when you thought the royal wedding circuit had come to an end, great news: There’s another wedding (today!). Kensington Palace announced in January that Princess Eugenie of York, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, is engaged to nightclub manager Jack Brooksbank after dating for several years. (They first met on a ski trip in Switzerland.)

Princess Eugenie is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth and first cousin to Prince William and Prince Harry, which means all of your favourite royal family members will be in attendance at the wedding. Though it won’t be a global event like Harry and Meghan’s ceremony, there will still be lots of fascinators and goofing off from the royal children to look forward to.
Here, everything we know so far about Eugenie and Jack’s wedding:
The wedding is taking place today at 11am (GMT+1). Eugenie’s father, the Duke of York, announced the news in February and apparently they had to shift the date so it didn’t align with Harry and Meghan’s royal tour to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand at the end of October.
Eugenie, 28, and Jack, 31, will get married at St George’s Chapel in Windsor – the same place Harry and Meghan had their wedding. Harry’s father, Prince Charles, and his stepmother, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, had their wedding here as well.
The #RoyalWedding will take place in St George’s Chapel, a magnificent 15th Century ‘Perpendicular Gothic’ building. The Service will include prayers from the Archbishop of York @JohnSentamu, music from @AndreaBocelli and @rpoonline. pic.twitter.com/FO7UzgVdhK

No word on what Eugenie’s wedding band will look like yet, but perhaps she will follow tradition like her grandmother, aunt, and cousins-in-law, and have one made of Welsh gold. Regardless, if it’s anything like her pink Padparadscha Sapphire diamond engagement ring, it’s sure to be beautiful.
