Princess Eugenie is counting down the days until she marries Jack Brooksbank, and royal fans have been discussing everything from the dress she might wear to which guests will attend. And according to Ladbrokes, it's very likely that Eugenie will be wearing a dress by one of her favourite designers Erdem, with odds of 7/2. Eugenie has already revealed that she has chosen a British-based designer, and other suggestions include Suzannah, with odds of 5/1, as well as Jenny Packham at 6/1 and Suzanne Neville at 10/1. Alice Temperley – also a favourite with the Duchess of Cambridge – is also in the running at 10/1.
There has also been a lot of discussion surrounding the outfits of the guests attending, especially the colour of the Queen's hat. Currently, blue is the favourite at 2/1, followed by pink at 3/1, orange at 4/1 and purple at 5/1. What's more, further bets suggest that Eugenie and Jack are likely to announce that they are expecting their first baby next year, with odds that Eugenie will give birth in 2019 set at 3/1.
Eugenie has kept the details of her dress under wraps and is likely to do so until her wedding day. The bride-to-be told British Vogue: "I’m not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer. [The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it." It's become a royal trend for brides to have two separate wedding dresses for their big day. Just like the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex, who both showed off their unique personalities with their reception dresses, Eugenie is very likely to follow suit.
Eugenie and Jack's wedding will take place on Friday 12 October and is thought to be a two-day affair. It has now been confirmed that following the carriage procession, the Queen will give a Reception at Windsor Castle for the couple and their wedding guests. The Sunday Times has reported that the following day, guests are expected to attend an afternoon party organised by A-list party planning firm, Bentleys Entertainment. An insider said there will be everything from dodgems to funfair rides, as well as plenty of cocktails at the festival-themed bash.
But now I can reveal that Princess Eugenies upcoming wedding will, after all, be televised – allowing her proud dad Prince Andrew to breathe a huge sigh of relief.
The Prince has been determined to ensure his younger daughters nuptials make it on to our screens, giving her a big day to rival Meghan and Harrys spectacle in May.
