A 'well-mannered' wedding - not 'bonkers' like Harry and Meghan's big day

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank leave the church after their wedding ceremony.

The hats Eugenie, left, and Beatrice, right, wore to the royal wedding of their cousin Prince William in 2011 drew a lot of attention - not all of it flattering.

Eugenie's elder sister Princess Beatrice, the maid of honour, read a passage from the The Great Gatsby describing the smile of the title character, a rich man famed for throwing parties for the 1920s NY glitterati.

Cara Delevingne was seen reaching for her hat as guests battled windy conditions at the royal wedding.

Eugenie will not take her new husband's title as he does not have one.

Prince Charles attended Princess Eugenie's wedding, but his wife - Camilla Parker Bowles - was absent.

Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank in a star-studded royal wedding at St. George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle. Prince Andrew and Sarah, the Duchess of York, have brought in the company who helped plan the Beckhams' reception for their daughter's own celebrity-packed royal wedding attended by A-listers including Naomi Campbell, Liv Tyler, Demi Moore, Robbie Williams, Ellie Goulding, James Blunt and Kate Moss.

The ninth in line to the throne wore a dress by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, co-founders of the brand Peter Pilotto, for her marriage to Jack Brooksbank on October 12.

The couple are famously well travelled having met whilst skiing in Switzerland and Jack popping the question while on holiday in Nicaragua.

Eugenie, a director at London's Hauser & Wirth art gallery, and Brooksbank, who is European brand manager for Casamigos Tequila, which was co-founded by USA actor George Clooney, met in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier in 2010.

Security around Windsor was tight, with airport-style security checks and large numbers of police.

Born Mary Donaldson in Australia, Princess Mary joined what is perhaps Europe's most popular royal family when she married Frederik, the Crown Prince of Denmark in 2004.

Those lining the streets were unlikely to be royal sceptics, though one watcher was overheard saying that spotting Jeremy Paxman had been the most exciting part of her day.
