Royal weddings are a little bit like buses – none for a few years, and then two come at once! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently announced more details about their spring wedding and we now have another royal wedding to look forward to.
Princess Eugenie is set to marry her long-term boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank, after the pair got engaged earlier this month in Nicaragua.
And in a surprising break with royal tradition, the couple have revealed that they’ll be hosting their guests in their back garden!
The couple, who will marry in the same chapel as Harry and Meghan, will host their reception in a marquee at their house.
A source told Vanity Fair: “Sarah and Andrew are helping to organize the evening party.
“The plan is for a marquee to be set up in the grounds and dancing late into the night.
“Eugenie and Jack are planning the whole thing but Sarah and Andrew are very involved. Sarah is bringing a very eclectic and exciting guest list to Windsor.”
We love the couple for doing things their own way – we just wish we could snag an invite to the shindig.
The couple announced their engagement earlier this year in a statement from the palace, which read…
“The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank.
“Her Royal Highness and Mr Brooksbank became engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month.
“The wedding will take place in the Autumn of 2018 at George’s Chapel in Windsor, with further details to be announced in due course.”

Jack Brooksbank’s family also released a brief statement,
“We could not be more delighted with the news of the engagement. We are completely over the moon and are very excited for them both.”
Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and Princess Eugenie’s mother shared a series of really cute quotes on social media.
Not long after the official announcement, the happy couple shared some official photos and we got a glimpse at the gorgeous engagement ring.
