Who Will Be the Bridesmaids in Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's Wedding?
Unlike in the United States, bridal attendants in British royal weddings tend to be young kids, both relatives of the bride and groom, and the children of close friends. With that in mind, here's who we think we'll see as Princess Eugenie's bridesmaids at her wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October.
At this point, Princess Charlotte is practically a professional bridesmaid. During Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May, one guest even heard the young royal instructing the other bridal attendants. "No you can’t go yet. We have to wait until we are asked," she reportedly said.
Given that Charlotte also served as a member of the bridal party at her Aunt Pippa's wedding in May of 2017, it's safe to assume we'll see her reprise the role at Eugenie's wedding.
Charlotte likely won't be the only royal bridesmaid at Eugenie's wedding. Maud Windsor, the granddaughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor, could also make an appearance. Maud doesn't usually attend public royal events, but she's roughly the same age as Prince George, and they both attend school together at Thomas's Battersea.
THEODORA ROSE WILLIAMS
Earlier this summer, British tabloid the Express reported that Theodora Rose Williams, the 5-year-old daughter of pop star Robbie Williams and Ayda Field, would serve as a bridesmaid in the upcoming royal wedding. Williams and Eugenie are reportedly good friends.
"This is a great moment for Robbie," the source said. "He couldn't be more proud for his daughter." Buckingham Palace has yet to comment on the rumor.
INES DE GIVENCHY
In the story about Williams, the Express also reported that Ines de Givenchy, the 2-year-old daughter of banker Olivier de Givenchy and his wife Zoe, would also serve as a bridesmaid. Again, Buckingham Palace has yet to confirm the news.
While the majority of her bridesmaids will be young children, Eugenie will also have her Beatrice as her maid of honor. The sisters confirmed the news in an interview in the September issue of British Vogue. The pair are quite close, and it only makes sense that Eugenie would like Beatrice by her side on her wedding day. She certainly isn't the first royal to include a sibling in her bridal party. Kate Middleton's sister Pippa served as maid of honor at the 2011 royal wedding, and back in 1947, Princess Margaret was one of then-Princess Elizabeth's bridal attendants. Plus, sisterly bond aside, it's helpful to have an adult there to help wrangle all the small children down the aisle.
