The Royal Family

The mistake no-one noticed in Princess Eugenie’s official wedding picture.


Last Friday, Eugenie and Jack tied the knot in one of the most lavish royal weddings of the year. As always, a photographer was on hand to capture the special day.

British fashion photographer, Alex Bramall, was the man behind the dazzling shots of the newlyweds.

However, some savvy fans have spotted an unexpected guest in the background of one of the pictures. 

All about the picture.

In the gorgeous picture, which features Princess Eugenie in a blush pink Zac Posen gown and Brooksbank at their evening reception, royal aficionados think they’ve spotted Cressida Bonas, taking a selfie.

The left-side of the image appears to have been deliberately darkened. It leads to speculation that Bramall may have been aware of the presence of Prince Harry’s former flame.

But the mystery deepens.

And that is because, the woman in question appears to be wearing a printed skirt and a white top. That is a very different outfit from the blue Tory Burch dress and matching headband donned by Bonas at the ceremony at St George’s Chapel.

However, since the bride opted for an outfit change, it wouldn’t be a surprise if her friend did it too. The newly-wed royal and the British model/actress have been close friends for several years.

Eugenie even introduced her friend to her older cousin, Harry dating from 2012-2014. However, Harry and Cressida still appear to be close as she was a guest at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 19 wedding.

A relationship that many thought would lead to Bonas and Harry’s nuptials, but in the end fizzled out.

“Especially in this country, I find that people are very quick to put you in a box or put you in a corner and think, ‘Oh well, you’re that, so you must be that”, Bonas told in an interview. 

“It’s incredibly frustrating, especially in the industry that I’m in. But then you know, it is the way it is. It’s making a stand and saying, ‘Actually no, this is who I am, and this is what I want to do”.
