Princess Eugenie , the granddaughter of British Queen Elizabeth II , on Friday married her long -term boyfriend , Jack Brooksbank at the same royal chapel inside Windsor Castle where Prince Harry and Meghan , the Duchess of Sussex , got married in May .

Several A – list celebrities are expected to attend the ceremony at St George ’ s Chapel , including George and Amal Clooney , and singer Robbie Williams.

Williams’ daughter Theodora and Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the children of Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge , will be among the bridesmaids and page boys at the wedding .

Eugenie ’ s sister , Princess Beatrice , 30 , will be her maid of honour .

Eugenie and Brooksbank have been a couple since they met at the Swiss ski resort of Verbier in 2010 .

Brooksbank proposed to Eugenie during a holiday in Nicaragua in January , according to the royal family .

She is the second daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex – wife Sarah Ferguson , who retains the title , Duchess of York .
