Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter marries at grand royal wedding

Kate stepped out in the chic lilac dress for an event in London

The West Door of St George's chapel was decorated in autumnal splendour ahead of the wedding.

While the royal family is paying for the wedding itself, there has been disquiet among republicans and some newspapers over the security bill for the event, which has been estimated at more than 2 million pounds ($3.7 million), given that Eugenie does not carry out official royal duties.

Eugenie is the 28-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and ninth in line for the throne. The girls will be joined by Eugenie's goddaughter Maud Windsor, who is the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor and Sophie Winkleman, along with Theodora Williams, daughter of singer Robbie Williams and Ayda Field.

The low neckline of the dress accentuated the bride's elegant emerald drop earrings, which were given to her as a wedding gift from her groom Jack.

The wedding is set to begin at 11 a.m. local time - 6 a.m. ET - at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same location as Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May.

Just hours before the wedding, Eugenie and her fiancé described the moment they first saw each other on ski holiday in Verbier, Switzerland.

He and Eugenie have dated for many years.

Thousands of well-wishers are also expected to line the streets of Windsor to cheer the newly-married couple as they drive past in a carriage procession at 12pm BST.

This is why at many events we see Harry and Meghan standing slightly behind Wills and Kate. But, I think that for visitors, the first wedding was such a big occasion.

And similar to Harry and Meghan, Eugenie and her fiancé will invite 1,200 members of the public to the castle grounds for a better view of Friday's festivities.

But Eugenie, who is not a working royal, and Jack will not head up the Long Walk like Harry and Meghan, but take a shorter route back to the castle. The queen will then host a reception at the castle.

George, 5, will be a page boy in the bridal party, and three-year-old Charlotte will be one of six bridesmaids.

Maid of honour Princess Beatrice - Eugenie's older sister - will read an extract from F Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby.
