Meet the Wind-sors: Breezy weather bombards guests at royal wedding

Following Princess Diana's death, the Duchess "felt Andrew could have done more" to help smooth her transition into the royal family, a source told the publication.

After the couple were officially married, they shared their first kiss on the steps of the castle with onlookers cheering for them.

Many have speculated that they could return to the place where Jack asked Eugenie to marry him, Calala Island just off the coast of Nicaragua.

No, really. The bride's sister, Princess Beatrice, read a passage from the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel and the Dean of Windsor mentioned it in his homily. There were also crowds of well-wishers on the streets outside the imposing castle, the site of Harry's marriage to Meghan Markle in May.

Despite making their own fun, the children dutifully fell in line to follow Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank as they left the chapel as husband and wife.

But as a mere guest at this wedding, Meghan clearly wanted to remain out of the limelight to give Eugenie her moment in the sun.

Their six-year-old daughter Theodora was one of Eugenie's bridesmaids.

She said there had been ongoing engagements between the two and that Nene had briefed him on the details around his testimony. The rand gained 0.9% to R14.72/$ by 5.25pm in Johannesburg , reversing an earlier decline of as much as 1.4%.

Sarah Ferguson gave her daughter a run for her money when it came to wearing the most-talked-about outfit of the royal wedding.

Which brings us to Princess Eugenie's wedding today where she traded her extravagant fascinators for an equally extravagant emerald tiara, as well as a number of other extremely lavish touches.

After the service, the couple took an open-top horse-drawn carriage tour of Windsor before a reception at the castle, hosted by the queen.

Eugenie, 28, works in art while Brooksbank is European Brand Manager for Casamigos Tequila, which was co-founded by actor George Clooney.

Security around Windsor was tight, with airport-style security checks and large numbers of police.

With all the star power in the room, it was little surprise that taxpayers ended up footing a $3.4 million bill for security, Fitzwilliams said. Eugenie worked closely with Pilotto and De Vos on the design of the gown, according to a statement from the Royal Family. So when a camera caught the two briefly holding hands in the pews of St. George's Chapel, the royal-watching world was "Awwwwww"- struck.
