Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbanks are walking down the aisle very soon. But don’t expect these nuptials to be a textbook royal ceremony.
Based on the details, the wedding day is shaping up to stray quite a bit from past regal ceremonies.
Eugenie’s will be a fall royal wedding.
Unlike William and Kate’s and Harry and Meghan’s, Eugenie will wed in leaf-peeping season on October 12, 2018. By having their big day in fall and not spring or summer, the couple are breaking a fairly recent royal tradition.
Going back through royal wedding history though, two other notable royals have been married in autumn: Queen Elizabeth and Princess Anne.

The cost will be very different.
Though you can never truly put a price tag on someone’s big day, soon-to-be royal couple were initially expected to have a wedding that cost between $500,000 and $1 million.
But more recent estimates, put the figure now at a whopping $3.5 million. This number, while huge to non-royals, doesn’t even come close to Harry and Meghan’s ceremony, which many reported ending up being around $46 million.
Eugenie pledges that her wedding will be plastic-free.
Not only has she posted about it on her Instagram page before, but she also has taken on the role of Project 0 ambassador. It aims to clean up and take better care of the ocean.
Jack will probably not be given a royal title.
Kate Middleton became the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex once the papers were signed. But because Eugenie isn’t carrying out engagements, it’s unlikely that Jack will get the same honour.

They’re reportedly throwing a second-day informal party.
Harry, Meghan, William and Kate followed their big days with afternoon/evening reception festivities. According to some reports, Eugenie and Jack will also have an after-party on Saturday night.
The event will include a festival with a fairground and afternoon tea. Although, Her Majesty is still expected to host a reception on Friday afternoon.
