With one day to go until Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's Windsor wedding, a number of questions remain. Who are the bridesmaids and page boys? Will Jack have a best man? Who all was included on the star-studded guest list? And finally, what will the bride's dress look like?

But instead of offering insight into the fast-approaching nuptials, this afternoon Buckingham Palace opted to share a few adorable childhood photos of the soon-to-be bride and groom on Instagram and Twitter. It's a consolation prize we were happy to take—how cute were little Jack and Eugenie?

In addition to the childhood snaps, the couple released a few private photos, like this one taken at Balmoral Castle around Brooksbank's 30th birthday in 2016.


And this photo from New Year's Eve last year, which Jack and Eugenie spent in Verbier, Switzerland, which is where they first met. The caption notes it was taken "just a few weeks before they announced their engagement."


In addition to the photos, the royal family has also been sharing a number of royal wedding traditions on social media in the lead up to Eugenie's celebration.

For example, royal brides throughout history have carried a sprig of myrtle in their bouquets. It's a custom that dates back to Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, and one we're likely to see repeated on Friday.

Royal brides also traditionally leave their flowers on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey in a tribute to those who have died at war. While Eugenie will be married in St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, and not Westminster Abbey, it's still likely that she will send her bouquet back to London, just as the Duchess of Sussex did earlier this year.
