Once again, the British Monarchy show the world what it does so well: put on a sumptuous wedding that draws the attention of the entire world.

This time was the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York, ninth in line to the throne, who married Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel in Windsor, on Friday.

The second royal wedding of the year in Windsor featured the bride's family, led by her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and grandfather, Prince Philip, and 850 guests including well-known celebrities like Demi Moore, Kate Moss, Robbie Williams, Ricky Martin and Naomi Campbell.

Among the royal contingent were the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Charles and Princess Anne.

The arrival of the guests to the chapel where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married five months ago, was enlivened by strong winds, that forced adults to hold on to their hats and children in the bridal party to struggle to stay on their feet.

The bride, 28, is the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, the queen's third child, and his controversial ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. She works as a director at the London art gallery Hauser & Wirth.

The groom, 32, known in the media as “a tequila ambassador,” is a representative for the tequila brand Casamigos launched by George Clooney.

She wore a low-back bridal dress with a long train by British label Peter Pilotto, which purposely revealed her scar from undergoing corrective surgery for scoliosis as a child.

"Roads were closed, balloted tickets offered to members of the public and the streets of Windsor scattered with royal devotees," reported The Guardian. "But this was, insisted the father of the bride before the service, 'not a public wedding. This is meant to be a family wedding.'”

The Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli and members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performed during the ceremony that was officiated by the dean of Windsor David Conner.

As in the nuptials of Meghan and Harry, the children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were a pageboy and bridesmaid.

The other bridesmaids were Mia Tindall—daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall—Mia's cousins Savannah and Isla, Eugenie's goddaughter, Maud Windsor, Robbie Williams' daughter, Theodora and six-year-old Louis de Givenchy, the son of friends.

Also as in this year's other royal wedding, Princess Eugenie invited 1,200 members of the public to the Windsor Castle grounds to watch the guests arrive and to cheer the newlyweds. They, too, watched the bride and groom enjoy a carriage ride through the streets of Windsor following the ceremony, which began at 11 a.m.

At the end of the traditional ceremony, during which Princess Beatrice delivered a reading from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, the couple kissed on the steps of the chapel as well-wishers cheered.

The queen hosted an afternoon reception in St George's Hall at the castle after the carriage ride, before an evening party at the York family home, the Royal Lodge, in Windsor Great Park, for a select group of 400.
