The Top 5 Moments From Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s Royal Wedding

On October 12, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank wed in St. George’s Chapel, at Windsor Castle’s second royal wedding of the year. For such a large and glamorous affair (there were 850 guests, including Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss), it raced by: The ceremony started at 11:00 a.m. London time and was over within the hour.

Below, the morning’s most memorable moments:

1. Princess Eugenie’s Back-Bearing Dress
Designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress wasn’t just a beautiful garment. It also carried a deeper significance: With its low back design, it showed off Princess Eugenie’s scar from a scoliosis surgery she underwent at age 12.

2. The Emerald Tiara
It was rumored that Princess Eugenie would wear the York tiara, like her mother did on her wedding day. Instead, she opted for a different “something borrowed”: the Queen’s Emerald Kokoshnik tiara. Originally made for society host Margaret Greville in 1919, its style reflects that of the Russian Imperial Court. Greville gave the showstopping tiara to Queen Elizabeth in 1942.

3. Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s Bridal Party Performance
At this point, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have a been page boy and bridesmaid in multiple weddings—including that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle—and they never disappoint. Especially today: Princess Charlotte couldn’t stop waving at the crowds, and inside the church, Prince George was seeing palling around with cousin Savannah Phillips.

4. William and Kate Holding Hands
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex frequently engage in public displays of affection. But William and Kate? Not so much. Which is why, when a camera caught the two briefly holding hands in the pews, it caused Twitter to let out a collective “aww.”

5. The Great Gatsby Influence
Yes, you read that right. One predominant theme running through Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s service was The Great Gatsby. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s description of Jay Gatsby’s smile reminded Eugenie of her now-husband. Princess Beatrice read a passage from the book, and it was mentioned in the Dean of Windsor’s homily. Observers were divided over whether this was cute or not, considering the book’s tragic ending.
