You’ll Have to Get Up Even Earlier for the Next Royal Wedding

The other royal wedding is fast approaching, as Princess Eugenie—first cousin to William and Harry, daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson—is set to marry Jack Brooksbank in less than a month, on October 12. While this wedding is not going to necessarily be the same spectacle as Meghan Markle and Harry’s—and will not be televised globally—it still promises to bring some major royal glamour, and will be held in the same location, Windsor Castle (and George and Amal Clooney actually might attend this one too, as Brooksbank works for Casamigos, George’s tequila brand).

The Palace released some new details about the wedding on Friday, announcing that the officiant of the ceremony will be the Dean of Windsor, the Rt. Revd. David Conner. And per the release, “the Archbishop of York, the Most Revd. and Rt. Hon. John Sentamu, will lead the prayers.” (All involved in the ceremony should expect, “So did you talk to Meghan?!?! What is she like??” texts immediately following, presumably.)

The pair will, like Harry and Meghan, take a carriage ride after the wedding from the Royal Mews, out of the castle, and “on to part of the High Street.” The carriage ride, while visible to the public, will not be nearly as long as Harry and Meghan’s, though, as they will not be traveling along the Long Walk. A reception hosted by the Queen will follow back at the castle.

The Queen is opening the grounds of Windsor Castle for the event, and—after opening up invitations (all members of the public were free to apply via an online form)—the pair has sent out invites to 1,200 individuals to attend. The Palace said the couple received more than 100,000 applications in total.

The Palace also announced the wedding will take place at 11 A.M. in London, an hour earlier than Harry and Meghan’s did, which means those of us in the U.S. will be setting very early alarms that day.
