Royal Wedding Number 2 of 2018 is on....

.....October 12th. The date that Princess Eugenie of York will marry Jack Brooksbank at St. George's Chapel, Windsor has been confirmed by her proud dad, Prince Andrew.

They are getting married on a Friday (very trendy now, makes a long weekend of the whole event) and the save the date we've all been waiting for came almost two weeks after Eugenie and Jack announced their engagement.

The latest royal wedding of 2018 will share a date with several other regal moments in time. Edward VI was born on October 12th 1537 (his mother, Jane Seymour, who died following childbirth is buried in St. George's Chapel) thus bringing to an end Henry VIII's despair over a lack of male heir. Queen Elisabeth of Greece was born on October 12th 1894 as a princess of Romania while it's also the date that Christopher Columbus first set foot in the Americas in 1492 under the patronage of Ferdinand and Isabella. As a result it's Spain's National Day when King Felipe, Queen Letizia and their two daughters, Leonor and Sofia, watch the military parade in Madrid so don't expect any Leti fashion at this royal wedding. 

The marriage will come just short of five months after the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle which takes place on May 19th this year and with plenty of time for the Queen to get the photos into her Christmas speech. And we can already start looking forward to Eugenie as a royal October bride.
