Princess Eugenie of York is getting married Friday in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in front of her entire family and hundreds of guests, including celebrities, dressed in a couture gown and waving from a horse-drawn carriage as trumpets sound and red-coated cavalry march to and fro.
Wait … Didn’t this already happen? Not quite, but close. Call it Harry and Meghan lite.
In May, Prince Harry married his American actress girlfriend, Meghan Markle, in the same church, in the same castle, with a couture gown and a colorful carriage procession, plus a gospel choir, a Chicago preacher and marching soldiers, all overseen by Queen Elizabeth II, grandmother to Harry and Eugenie.
Thus, the pre-wedding hoopla for Eugenie is way less noisy than it was for Harry. But it’s still a wedding, it’s still royal and it’s still the product of a family effort to make Eugenie’s day as special as Harry’s, if less hyped.
