Why Princess Eugenie didn’t need the Queen’s approval for her wedding?


The soon-to-be bride, Eugenie is a royal but, she is too far from becoming the sovereign. As the line to the throne stands right now, she falls in ninth place. 

 For Eugenie to ascend to the British throne, a whole lot of other people would have to get out of her way first. 

The soon-to-be royal bride, Eugenie is the daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York. He is the second son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. 

The Prince of Wales, Charles is expected to take the throne after Queen Elizabeth, assuming he doesn’t turn it down. His eldest son, the Duke of Cambridge, William, is next in line.

It is then followed by all three of William’s children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. William’s brother, the Duke of Sussex, Harry, is next.

However, he and the rest of the line will be bumped down.

Harry and the rest of the members will bump down if and when Prince George has children of his own.

George is the first born of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the future King and Queen Consort. As first child, he will see his own eldest child take the spot behind him in the line of succession.

Well, this isn’t all.

Princess Eugenie is currently in the ninth spot on the roster. And chances are she’ll move farther down the line as the years go on. An amazing news for her, is that she doesn’t need Queen Elizabeth’s permission to marry the person of her choice.

According to the Royal Marriages Act, only the next six people in line for the throne are required to have Her Majesty’s sign-off on their nuptials. And so, Eugenie didn’t need her grandmother’s approval for her upcoming wedding to Jack Brooksbank.
