Britain's Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank leave Windsor Castle a day ahead of their wedding in Windsor, Britain, on Thu., Oct. 11, 2018. Meanwhile Prince Philip wore grey trousers, a black jacket and a tan vest.

"It's not a public wedding, this is meant to be a family wedding".

The snaps show Princess Eugenie and groom-to-be Jack Brooksbank as children, and Andrew included a few more recent images.

And similar to Harry and Meghan, Eugenie and her fiancé will invite 1,200 members of the public to the castle grounds for a better view of Friday's festivities. Pageboy Louis de Givenchy is going viral thanks to almost being knocked over by strong winds as he made his way into St. George's Chapel.

Unlike other royal weddings, the day will not be broadcast on BBC, with ITV's This Morning instead taking over the coverage.

Princess Charlotte, 3, daughter of Harry's elder brother Prince William and his wife Kate, was a bridesmaid, and her brother, Prince George, 5, a page boy.

The bride's mother, Sarah Ferguson, has also taken up a seat in the church dressed in green, alongside her oldest daughter Princess Beatrice, who is also serving as her sister's maid-of-honour.

Entire US fleet of F-35s grounded for engine inspections
Of the 280 operational F-35s purchased to date by USA and global partners, only 51 percent are now available for flight, Vice Adm. All three services have stopped flying the F-35 while fuel tubes in the aircraft are inspected and replaced if necessary.

Eugenie, 28, ninth-in-line to the throne and a director at London's Hauser & Wirth art gallery, and Brooksbank, 32, who works in the drinks and hospitality industry, are copying some of her cousin's plans.

Fans of the royal family might have been initially anxious that they wouldn't be able to watch Princess Eugenie's wedding because the BBC said it would not broadcast the event. The girls will be joined by Eugenie's goddaughter Maud Windsor, who is the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor and Sophie Winkleman, along with Theodora Williams, daughter of singer Robbie Williams and Ayda Field.

Britain's top-selling Sun newspaper ran a front-page story on Wednesday with the headline "2m too much for Eugenie wedding", saying the event could have been held at a chapel near her childhood home.

A wedding service booklet will be handed to the 850 guests gathered in St George's Chapel.

The couple's Order of Service revealed that Jack will not be wearing a ring and Eugenie will not promise to obey her husband. The queen will then host a reception at the castle.

"We are getting a lot of American and Chinese and Spanish visitors", Jag Khaira at the Nell Gwynn Tearoom told the AP. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away.
