There are a myriad of things about Eugenie’s upcoming wedding that are completely different from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ceremony in May.

For example, the event of 1200 people will not bel televised and will be completely plastic-free. But there is one detail that will be completely traditional, and that is the man who will be walking Princess Eugenie down the aisle.

Princess Eugenie’s father is Prince Andrew, also known as the Duke of York.

He is Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s third child, making him seventh in line to the throne.

According to the Duke of York’s official website, his official engagements as a royal are focused on education, skills, entrepreneurship and the area of science, technology and engineering.

The 58-year-old was married to the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, who is colloquially known as Fergie.

The pair married in 1986, just two years before the birth of their first daughter, Beatrice. They divorced in 1996.

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Eugenie expressed how close she is with her family.

“What can’t I live without? My family. That sounds cheesy, but I really can’t,” she told the publication.

“My father as well. He’s the rock. And I couldn’t live without my doggies,” she said in the interview.

The 28-year-old will be marrying 32-year-old Jack Brooksbank on October 12 in St George’s Chapel.

Thankfully, there are no royal wedding etiquette rules that stipulate anything about consuming alcohol, meaning Princess Eugenie can definitely toast to the happiness and longevity of her marriage alongside her dad.
