Another royal wedding is just a few weeks away, and when Princess Eugenie weds wine merchant Jack Brooksbank, she is determined to outdo Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Multiple sources claim that the Royal — who is ninth in line to the throne — is spending a fortune of taxpayer money for her two-day wedding event.
Insiders say that the lavish event is part of Eugenie’s “bridezilla battle” to upstage the Duchess of Sussex, even though Markle reportedly “couldn’t care less” about the details of her ceremony.
A palace insider said, “Eugenie is renowned as a classic privileged princess, and always wants her parties to be put on without cost being considered. Her wedding is no different. She’s fully aware senior royals will look down on her wedding as second best when it’s compared to Meghan and Harry’s big day.”
Because of this, Eugenie has decided to “go all out,” and has turned into a bridezilla. She has hired the most expensive caterers and planners should could find. Plus, she also wants A-list guests, just like Markle.
But, according to Radar Online, this extravaganza is totally “pointless,” and she has already enraged both politicians and taxpayers. Markle knows that Eugenie’s wedding will not get anywhere near the global attention that hers did, plus the former Suits actress has bigger concerns on her mind, thanks to her family causing trouble.
An insider says that Eugenie would have been better off holding a simple, understated wedding, and then donating some money to charity. But instead, she is spending millions on security and expensive champagne.
The 28-year-old Princess will marry the 32-year-old Brooksbank on Friday, October 12 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the exact same venue where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot. Later in the evening, there will be a black-tie reception at Royal Lodge in Windsor near where her divorced parents, Prince Andrew and Fergie, still share a home (even though they divorced in 1996). Eugenie has a dress code of dresses and hats for the women and a morning coat requirement for the men.
A morning coat is one that has a snug fit and an S-shape silhouette that goes over the seat. Apparently, it is the sign of a true gentleman. At Markle’s wedding, she loosened things up by allowing the men to wear long suits.
Harry and Meghan invited 600 people to their May wedding ceremony, but Eugenie is attempting to pack in 850 guests, despite the capacity of the chapel being 800. They will provide extra seating, and sources say that Princess Eugenie doesn’t care if the over-capacity crowd creates a safety hazard.
Some of the costs of the wedding include $2.6 million for security, $131,000 for flowers, and $200,000 for entertainment.
