As Princess Eugenie stepped graciously out of her Rolls Royce to mount the stairs of St George’s Chapel, wedding guests and viewers around the world were simply stunned by the royal’s beauty.
She wore a stunning Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos gown, complete with a plunging back and full skirt. Perched atop her head – her “something borrowed” – was the Queen’s emerald tiara.
But royal fans were quick to point out something traditional missing from the bride’s attire.
