We are just a few days away from the second royal wedding of 2018. On October 12, Princess Eugenie will marry Jack Brooksbank in Windsor.
The ceremony will be held in at St. George’s Chapel.
Eugenie’s wedding has actually been compared to Harry and Meghan’s fairy-tale day a lot. And there have been some similarities.
In addition to sharing a venue, Eugenie and Jack are also inviting members of the public to attend their wedding, just like Harry and Meghan did. Eugenie’s bouquet will also be similar to Meghan’s.
One thing that might differ quite a bit.
That will be the gifts that Eugenie and Jack receive, particularly from Queen Elizabeth. Her Majesty famously gifted Harry and Meghan York Cottage on her beloved Sandringham Estate.
So, will the bride-to-be get a fancy cottage at Sandringham to call her own? Not necessarily, according to experts. James Brookes, a royal expert told us:-

Well, it's a time for new beginning for Princess Eugenie. Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank would like to invite members of the public to join their wedding on 12 October, 2018, to attend inside the Precincts of Windsor Castle. #time #newbeginnings #princess #eugenie #princesseugenieofyork #jack #invite #members #public #wedding #windsorcastle #royalty #royals #uk #theroyaluk For more, visit theroyaluk.com ❤❤
“It would surprise me if the Queen doesn’t gift her and Jack something. Although I don’t think it’ll be as grand as York Cottage or Anmer Hall”.
There’s a good reason why Eugenie’s gift might not be extravagant.
An expert said: “It’s unlikely to be as extravagant as the property and Dukedom she gave to Prince Harry as a wedding gift. As because those gifts are usually only given to full-time senior working royals”.
“However, Eugenie has a successful career in the art world, outside of the royal family and doesn’t fall into this category”.
So what will Queen Elizabeth give Eugenie?
We can look to her cousin, Zara Tindall, for a clue. Zara is another non-working royal and she married rugby player, Mike Tindall in the year 2011.
At the time, Queen Elizabeth gave Zara a £40,000 gift by closing Holyroodhouse for five days for her wedding. The closure cost the Royal Collection £40,000 in admissions, which the Queen reimbursed out of her own accounts.
