As if one royal wedding wasn’t enough for this year, Princess Eugenie and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank today walked down the aisle of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Arriving with her father Prince Andrew, the Princess stunned as she stepped out of the car wearing a wide-v-neck gown with a folded, capped sleeve and Charlotte Olympia shoes.
In an unexpected turn, the Princess opted for a relatively under-the-radar British brand Peter Pilotto to design the dress.
After much speculation – in which designers such as Erdem, Stella McCartney and Jenny Packham were thrown into the pot – the reveal was a welcome surprise.
A heavily-embroidered piece, the stunning gown featured long sleeves, an enormous train and heavy embroidery creating a beautiful silhouette as she knelt at the the altar.
And the dress’s details weren’t purely for aesthetic purposes, instead offering some very sentimental touches.
“The fabric was designed by Mr Pilotto and Mr De Vos at their studio in East London and includes a number of symbols that are meaningful to Princess Eugenie as motifs,” said the brand.
“The symbols are a Thistle for Scotland, The Shamrock for Ireland, The York Rose for England and The Ivy representing the couple’s home.”
