Princess Eugenie's wedding is just over two months away—the royal is set to marry fiancé Jack Brooksbank on October 12—which means she's currently finalizing her big-day plans. This includes choosing a maid of honor, something Eugenie has officially crossed off her planning to-do list. In a joint interview with British Vogue, Eugenie revealed that her sister, Princess Beatrice, is taking on the important role.

 

This comes as no surprise to the sisters' fans, who've long witnessed their special bond. The women told the magazine they're "each other's rocks," reports People. While her choice of maid of honor isn't unexpected, another just-revealed detail about her nuptials certainly is. Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter is taking an eco-friendly approach to planning, in what appears to be a first for the royal family. "My whole house is anti-plastic now and Jack and I want our wedding to be like that as well," she explained.

Eugenie also dished on how she's feeling now that her wedding is fast approaching. "I'm not stressed at all," she shared. "It's nerve-racking because you want it to be perfect, but then you realize that you're going to be with the person you love forever and nothing else really matters." Beatrice complimented her sister's chill attitude, saying, "Euge is amazing, she's a very modern bride."

 

Eugenie and her future husband announced their engagement at the start of this year. Their nuptial celebration will take place at St. George's Chapel, which is where her cousin, Prince Harry, recently married Meghan Markle (now Duchess Meghan).
