Princess Eugenie is the granddaughter of the Queen and daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, both 59. She tied the knot with her long-term partner, Jack Brooksbank, in a ceremony which took place one year ago today. Eugenie showed she is close with her family and chose to get married at Windsor Castle, near the home of the Queen. At her wedding, she was given a wedding gift from her husband which had a sweet hidden message.
On the big day, the Princess wore an eye-catching wedding dress by designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos.
The gown had a fitted bodice which continued into a flowing full-length train.
The televised ceremony was attended by members of the Royal Family, including Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and the Queen.
Before the wedding, royal fans speculated Eugenie would wear the same York tiara which Sarah Ferguson wore on her wedding day.
Instead, the royal picked another tiara from the Queen’s collection and walked down the aisle in the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara steeped in history, Claire Adler, jewellery specialist and luxury PR consultant, explained.
“It was made by Boucheron in 1919, bequeathed to Her Majesty The Queen’s mother in 1942 by wealthy socialite Margaret Greville and was worn by both the Queen and her late mother.”
Eugenie kept the rest of her jewellery simple with a bare neck and wore a pair of drop diamond.
She pulled her hair back into a low bun which showed off the earrings, which were a gift from her future husband, Jack.
By choosing earrings that matched her tiara, Jack made a sweet nod to the Royal Family.
“While emeralds are the perfect fit for Eugenie’s beautiful green eyes and colouring, the Greville Kokoshnik tiara and Eugenie’s diamond and emerald earrings from her groom were a nod to the Emerald Isle, hinting at the Ferguson family’s Irish heritage,” Claire explained.
