New Royal bride Princess Eugenie reportedly had to cancel her traditional open carriage ride due to the blustery British weather.
The 28-year-old, daughter of Queen Elizabeth II’s son Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson, married her long-term love Jack Brooksbank at a star-studded ceremony in Windsor on Friday.
After kissing on the steps of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same venue Eugenie’s first cousin Prince Harry wed former actress Meghan, Duchess of Sussex in May, the young royal and her new husband were due to take a ride in an open carriage, like Harry and Meghan, but the English weather meant they had to abandon the plan, reports People.
Instead, they rode past adoring crowds in the Scottish State Coach, an enclosed carriage dating back to 1830. The Queen, who looked lovely in an ice blue coat by Angela Kelly, had the coach remodelled in 1968 in honor of Scotland, where the Order of the Thistle, the highest order of chivalry in Scotland, and the Scottish version of the Royal Arms were painted on the sides.
Windsor Grey horses Plymouth, Milford Haven, Tyrone and Storm pulled the carriage, with horses Claudia and Sir Basil serving as outriders, the Royal Family Twitter account shared.
Wearing an elegant off-the-shoulder gown from Peter Pilotto, Eugenie and Jack said their vows in front of a reported 850 guests, which included their families, and A-list friends such as actress and model Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell, Demi Moore and Ellie Goulding.
The newlyweds will enjoy a lunch reception hosted by Eugenie’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, at Windsor Castle, followed by a black tie evening reception at the Royal Lodge, Prince Andrew’s royal residence in Windsor that he shares with his ex-wife.
