Just based on the price tag, this wedding is modest compared to the one in May. Where was all of this backlash and pearl-clutching when all of the reports about H&M's expensive wedding was being published, especially considering 75% of that guest list was for PR purposes? Eugenie's guest list might be "star-studded" but she and/or Jack have actually proven connections to these people.

I'd be surprised if the dress is "plain."

^^That's a valid point.  My only reason for encouraging a classy, lowkey affair was to make Markle's look even more garish and bloated financially by comparison.

To be fair, as the son of the future monarch, Harry is higher in the royal pecking order and does actually do engagements. There are also rumours that - with a larger guest list and the fact that the wedding will stretch over several days - it will cost MORE than H&M's.

If more people are invited, then there will be more of a cost; throw in the carriage ride and I am certain that there will be more bills since security will have to protect the couple as they travel from the chapel to the castle where the party is being held. I am sure Fergie is DYING to be part of the procession as well.

Eugenie would have done well to try to emulate her cousin Zara's wedding.  Eugenie is way down in line of succession and has been excluded from doing royal duties. She has a job with very flexible hours and leads a life of luxury and plenty of leisure. Also there is still Bea who when she meets Mr Right will perhaps expect more pomp because she's older than Eugenie. I can see that happening.

She could have emulated Zara:

1. kicked out another couple from their chosen church on the day because she is the Queen's grandchild and she wanted it
2. shut down a large area of central Edinburgh for the security surrounding the attendance of her family
3. caused many of the businesses near the church to have to close on the day for hours due to her needing to shut down that area of Edinburgh for security.

People seem to have forgotten all the drama around Zara's wedding - which was full on controversy and she was heavily criticised for not marrying at St George's.

Her sense on entitlement came through very much with the 'I won't this church on this day so the couple who had already booked the church for that day will have to go somewhere else'.

At least Eugenie isn't forcing another couple to give up their dream church or shutting down a large part of a major city with the effect that would have on the economy of that city.

I never did buy the hype that Zara was as down to earth and unpretentious.

None of them are down to earth. And they have senses of entitlement. The Queen allows it apparently.

^^Oh, yeah.  I forgot about that.  ^No clue what HM is thinking or doing.  Seems like everything's off the leash.

This is too bad.  Just this once, I was looking forward to something that these people do and now it just feels too expensive, a little over the top.

Oh, well, Fergie will do something worth mentioning or watching.

I think Princess Anne is the worst; she postures as a soldier (being in the military parade, attending D-Day celebrations giving a salute in full uniform) and her nasty attitude is not a sign of being intelligent.

Do you think that Jack and Eugenie will personally write their own thank you notes for the wedding gifts?

I'm really not looking forward to Fergie's rictus grin and overbearing jollity at the wedding. I do hope she tones it down a lot.   Embarrassed
