Princess Eugenie wedding: Meghan Markle had Archbishop of Canterbury – will Eugenie? | Life | Life & Style


Princess Eugenie is the granddaughter of the Queen.

Her father is Prince Andrew and her mother is Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, both 58.

She announced her engagement to fiancé Jack Brooksbank, 32, on January 22.

Princess Eugenie met Jack Brooksbank, her wine merchant fiancé, on a skiing holiday in Verbier, Switzerland, where he was working at the time.

Brooksbank also worked at favourite nightclub of the royal, Mahiki, where Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton have all been spotted.

Eugenie and Jack’s wedding is set to take place in the same location as the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry, 33, and Meghan Markle, 36.

The venue has also seen the royal weddings of the Earl of Wessex, Peter Philips and Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.

Set to be held on October 12, will Archbishop Justin Welby officiate the wedding?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had the honour for their big day.

The former actress and the Duke of Sussex had the Dean of Windsor, David Conner, conducting the service with the Archbishop of Canterbury performing the marriage ceremony.

They then had the sermon delivered by The Most Reverend Michael Curry, presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church (the American member church of the Anglican Communion).

It tradition that the Archbishop, who is the Church of England’s most senior bishop, has a role at the wedding of any monarch or future monarch of Britain.

However, the role seems to stretch beyond this remit to any recent royal wedding.

Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury at the time, was the celebrant of the marriage of Prince William, 35, and Kate Middleton, 36.

At Charles and Diana’s wedding in 1981 the service was taken by Most Reverend Robert Runcie, Archbishop of Canterbury.

Princess Eugenie’s parents’ wedding had the same treatment.

Sarah Ferguson’s wedding was also overseen by Robert Runcie.

While there has been no official announcement, it seems like the Archbishop of Canterbury will play a role in Princess Eugenie’s wedding.

Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring was the spitting image of Sarah Ferguson’s. 

The light pink ring is an oval cut, flanked by diamonds and set on a gold band.

A padparadscha sapphire like Eugenie’s is characterised by a colour that is a mixture of red and yellow, creating a pink tone.
