Her Royal Highness is “delighted for” the next chapter that her grandson and Meghan Markle are about to begin, as parents. The Queen was reportedly told the exciting news—with the rest of the royal family—at Princess Eugenie’s wedding last weekend. The other members of the royal family share in the sentiment. Meghan’s mom, Doria, is also “very happy” about becoming a grandma.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are married! The royal couple exchanged “I Dos” at St. George’s Chapel on Friday; the same place Prince Harry married Meghan Markle, only 5 months ago. The 28-year-old was walked down the aisle by her father, Prince Andrew. The 32-year-old met the Princess eight years ago through mutual friends.
Twitter-verse is convinced Meghan Markle is pregnant…because of a coat. The Duchess showed up to Princess Eugenie’s wedding in a navy-blue Givenchy coat, which she buttoned at the top, “creating a tent-like silhouette that hid her stomach.” Meghan never removed the coat, causing even more of a stir among royal Twitter followers. Speculation about when/if there will be a royal baby has been rampant since Meghan and Prince Harry exchanged “I Do’s”—which is to be expected when the duo can’t seem to keep their hands off one another.
Prince Andrew threw some major shade in Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s direction. During an interview before his daughter, Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday, Prince Andrew said there would be “more guests here today than Harry and Meghan had, but that is the nature of Eugenie and Jack, they have so many friends.” The quote follows many rumors that Prince Andrew’s goal was to make his daughter’s wedding “bigger and better” than Harry and Meghan’s.
Future King of England, Prince George and cousin Savannah Phillips once again stole the show. The duo, who were previously caught up to no good at the Trooping the Colour, shared a laugh before walking down the aisle at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s nuptials. Princess Charlotte stood near the giggling cousins and did not approve of the behavior, based on the side-eye she was giving them.
Jack Brooksbanks will not receive a royal title when he marries Princess Eugenie. Royal historian, Marlene Eilers Koenig told Hello! Magazine that “Jack will not be getting any title from the Queen.” The reason Meghan Markle obtained the title of Duchess is because of Prince Harry’s higher status in the line of succession and Meghan carries out official duties on behalf of the royal family; this will not be the case for Jack. There was once a rumor that Prince Andrew, Eugenie’s dad, threw a royal fit about his future sons-in-law needing royal titles because if they didn’t, any future grandchildren would be…gasp…commoners, but it has since been denied by Prince Andrew himself.
Jack Brooksbank is “terrified” about his upcoming nuptials to Princess Eugenie. Jack opened up to the Daily Mail saying that he is going to “need to take a few minutes” before the speeches because he is “terrified”, also excited, but “nervous.” Maybe a shot or two of Casamigos would loosen him up. I’m sure his boss—George Clooney—wouldn’t mind the publicity of his tequila brand.
A petition is going around asking the “House of Commons to urge the Government to commit no public money [toward] the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, and to publish a report of all costs to taxpayers.” If the taxpayers get their way, the Royal Family would have to personally finance the “extravagant and pricey wedding”; security alone costs £2 Million (about $2.6 Million). As of Friday, the petition had 7,000 signatures. The wedding is set for October 12. There has been no comment from Kensington Palace.
