Everything We Know About Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's Wedding Reception Venues
You'll definitely recognize one of these places.
Shortly after announcing their engagement earlier this year, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank revealed that they (like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!) were tying the knot in St. George's Chapel. Thanks to a Vanity Fair source, we now know where their October celebration will continue, post-ceremony.
The duo will again follow in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's footsteps during the daytime portion of the festivities, which will be hosted by Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle. Later that night, their second party will allegedly take place at the Royal Lodge. The home belongs to Eugenie's father, Prince Andrew, and is also commonly frequented by the mother of the bride, Sarah Ferguson, when she is in town.
The outlet also reported that hosts Sarah and Andrew are thoroughly involved in the planning of the evening event, which will feature a festive tent and late-night dancing. They aren't overstepping any boundaries, though. "Eugenie and Jack are planning the whole thing, but Sarah and Andrew are very involved," the source revealed.
Though the Royal Lodge serves as a residence, Eugenie and Jack's nuptials won't be a casual backyard wedding. According to Woman & Home, the Georgian-style estate boasts manicured gardens, an indoor swimming pool, a chapel, and 21 acres of private grounds. But it will still feel like home for Eugenie, who according to People, "is a local to the area and spent a lot of her life in Windsor." Before the newlyweds' festivities begin, though, they will take a horse-drawn carriage ride through town, surrounded by 1,200 members of the public. Eugenie and Jack will journey down High street and end back at Windsor Castle, where they will prepare themselves for the first reception.
