Known to break traditions in the name of fashion, Princess Eugenie of York always appeared to be a true modern royal, a feat that earned her the public’s affection. It was therefore not at all disappointing when we witnessed contemporary elements in Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank on October 12th at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
For one, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson did not wear a veil. She, however, donned the stunning 1919 Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara lent to her by her grandma, no less than Queen Elizabeth II. Most importantly, Eugenie showed up in front of 860 royal wedding guests in a dress with a sweeping back. The silk-jacquard gown, by the London-based fashion house of Peter Pilotto and partner Christopher de Vos, was intentionally designed to show-off the princess’ scar from a surgery she had as a child to treat a curvature of the spine. She completed the portrait neckline look with Charlotte Olympia shoes.

The Official Photos
The Royal Family released these images which photographer Alex Bramall took in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle and at the private dinner at Royal Lodge.
The guest list included singers, actors, and businessmen.
Princess Eugenie dated Mr. Brooksbanks, brand ambassador for George Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila, for eight years after meeting him on a skiing holiday in Verbier, Switzerland. She advocated to having a plastic-free wedding. Between that and her scar-revealing dress, this is arguably the most inspiring royal wedding we’ve seen so far!
