Princess Eugenia's wedding: Royal's wedding dress made this nod to Meghan Markle and Kate


Princess Eugenia married her husband for seven years during a ceremony held at Windsor Castle. The royal is the daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, both 59 years old, and is the niece of Queen Elizabeth II, 93 years old. She seems to be very close to her family and this is something she focused on during her marriage. Eugenie used a number of tricks to give a subtle nod to her family members including Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, both 37.

Princess Eugenia chose to marry at the St George's Windsor Castle Chapel, which is an important place for her family.

Besides being very close to where the Queen lives, it has been the place for other royal weddings.

She seemed to take inspiration from her cousin-father-in-law, Meghan Markle, choosing the same place she had married a few months before.

Eugenie's wedding dress seemed to be inspired by the designs worn by Meghan and Kate Middleton.

For the big day, the Princess wore a dress specially made by British designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.

By opting for a similar material, Eugenie also opted for a slightly off-shoulder design like the Duchess of Sussex.

Eugenie's splendid gown was characterized by a mixture of silk, cotton and viscose and featured a fitted bodice and a pleated skirt.

The fit and flare design of the dress was inspired by Alexander McQueen's dress worn by Kate Middleton.

Both dresses had a V-neck style with a fitted bodice that pulled at the waist.

The two dresses also had similar long sleeves, although Kate was in lace.

The grand wedding of Princess Eugenia costs about 2.7 million pounds, and it is likely that the royal family faced the bill.

They were set back by the costs including catering for their 850 wedding guests, who valued them at £ 151,600.

The queen often chooses to pay for royal weddings and this was probably no different.

In addition to taking inspiration from Kate at her wedding, the couple is thought to have an intimate relationship.

They are often seen laughing together when they appear at real events.
