Royal Roll Call: Which Family Members Will Be at Princess Eugenie's Wedding?
Princess Eugenie's wedding is days away, and we've been treated to lots of fun details about the big day. While there's been lots of talk about which celebrities Eugenie and her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, plan to invite, there are fewer details concerning the members of her own family who might be scheduled to attend. We've rounded up a "royal roll call" of sorts, where we'll be updating the RSVP status of each of Eugenie's high-profile relatives. Scroll through to see who is set to watch Eugenie walk down the aisle on Oct. 12 and who might be a no-show.
Is she going?: Not only is she going, but she's also got a job to do! Naturally, Eugenie asked her big sister to serve as her maid of honor on the big day.
Is he going?: Yes! Eugenie's father, Prince Andrew of York, will be on hand to walk her down the aisle at St. George's Chapel.
Is she going?: The former Duchess of York will be front and center for Eugenie's big day, and according to reports, she's been "very involved" in the planning process. Eugenie is even rumored to be following in her mother's footsteps by wearing the York tiara on her wedding day, which Sarah Ferguson first wore when she married Prince Andrew in 1986.
Is he going?: Erm, probably not, to be honest. Eugenie's 97-year-old grandfather may decide to sit out her wedding day due to some long-standing drama with her mom, Sarah Ferguson. Philip is "so estranged from Fergie," according to reports, that he will likely "decide at the 99th hour" whether or not to attend Eugenie's ceremony. Their ongoing rift — which you can read aaalll about here — even led Philip to vow never to be in the same room as Sarah again. Yikes.
Queen Elizabeth II
Is she going?: Unlike Prince Philip, the queen has a more favorable relationship with Sarah Ferguson and is planning to be there to see her granddaughter walk down the aisle. We can bet she'll be wearing a fly AF outfit for the big day!
Is he going?: There's been no confirmation of William's attendance, but it's a pretty safe bet that he will be at his cousin's wedding, especially as his kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are rumored to have big roles in the ceremony.
Is she going?: Maybe, but it's unlikely. While I had not-so-secretly hoped that Kate would show up wearing the giant fascinator that Eugenie wore to her royal wedding in 2011, it doesn't look like it's gonna happen. According to reports, Kate may have to miss her cousin-in-law's big day for an equally big reason: her younger sister, Pippa, is due to give birth to her first child around the same time. We'll just have to wait and see!
Is he going?: Along with his younger sister, 5-year-old George is reported to be a member of Eugenie's wedding party and will serve as a pageboy. Thankfully he's already got some great experience!
Is she going?: What would a royal event be without the family's reigning savage, Princess Charlotte? The 3-year-old's résumé already includes gigs at both her Aunt Pippa Middleton's and Uncle Harry's weddings, and it's reported that Charlotte will be promoted to lead flower girl at Eugenie's ceremony. Here's hoping that she pulls out some more tricks for the camera!
Is he going?: As little Louis will only be 5 months old by the time Eugenie gets married, we can't imagine that Will or Kate would bring him along. But if they do, there's a good bet that he'll sleep through the whole thing anyway.
Is he going?: Very likely! While no details have been announced, we can't imagine why Harry wouldn't show up to see his cousin get married. It will be a nice bit of déja vu, too, as Eugenie and Jack are tying the knot at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, where he and Meghan Markle were married in May.
Is he going? Eugenie's Uncle Charles is slated to attend her wedding, though according to reports, he'll be showing up solo.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
Is she going?: Days before Eugenie's wedding, it was announced that Camilla will not be at St. George's for the event. Instead, she'll be fulfilling previous obligations by attending a harvest festival and a school close to her and Charles's home in Scotland.
