Take a look behind the scenes of the latest royal wedding, with four official photos from the day
Normally, the first photos from a wedding trickle out on Facebook and Instagram a few hours after the fact.
But when your grandmother’s the Queen and you have the offspring of pop royalty among your bridal party, protocol plays a larger role.
Princess Eugenie and her new husband Jack Brooksbank have released four official photos from their wedding day on Friday, offering the public a glimpse beyond the TV cameras’ range.
The couple said they were “delighted” to be able to share the images, captured by fashion photographer Alex Bramall.
The snaps show the newlyweds surrounded by their eight page boys and bridesmaids (including Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Robbie Williams’ daughter, Theodora Williams), a formal family snap with the Queen and a few more laid-back moments along the way.
The Windsor Castle ceremony was attended by 850 guests, including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Cara Delevingne. The bride wore a dress imbued with personal symbolism created by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.
Take a look at the official photos, below.

The after-party begins
The pair are pictured in more laid-back mode, for the evening bash at Royal Lodge, Windsor. Eugenie wears a Zac Posen gown inspired by “the blush of an English rose”.
