Category : News , Royal Family , UK News

MEGHAN Markle and Prince were ABSENT from Kate Middleton’s intimate birthday celebrations last week as simmering tensions between the two Duchesses continue.

And despite the lavish manor house boasting ten bedrooms – providing ample room for guests – Harry and Meghan were not in attendance, according to the Mail On Sunday.
It is not clear if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not invited – or had turned it down.
But among Kate’s close-knit set of pals who could make the meal was old schoolmate Emilia Jardine-Paterson.
She played hockey with Kate when they were together at Marlborough College and is a godmother to Prince George.

Interior designer Emilia knows the Royal couple well – having taken Kate on a girls trip to Ibiza when she and Wills briefly split in 2007.
Her husband David – who also attended the birthday party – was at Eton with Prince William.
And Laura Meade, Princess Charlotte’s godmother and one of Kate’s closest friends, made the party alongside husband James.
Sophie Carter, another Norfolk friend, and her husband Robert also attended the meal – reported to be a Sunday roast.
Princess Charlotte and Prince George were pages at the couple’s wedding last September.

The revelation that Meghan and Harry were not in attendance comes it emerged the Duchess of Sussex’s female bodyguard has quit after less than a year.
The cop, who has never been named for security reasons, is her third close aide to leave in a little over two months.
She had replaced Sgt Bill Renshaw, Harry’s long-standing head of security, who retired after more than 30 years in the force.
But she has now quit after being in the job for only about six months, according to The Sunday Times.

Eugenie said it took her a long time to come to terms with being different and it “was a bombshell that left me reeling”.
She said after the surgery she was unable to move and was forced to wear a neck brace as she healed.
The princess told The Daily Telegraph: “That was very frustrating and I remember being angry about not being able to run around and play.”
But Eugenie, 28, said over the years she came to terms with the trauma.

Eugenie said she was now proud that she could be an example to people going through the same thing.

How to pronounce Eugenie, what’s the princess’s full name and who’s she named after?

THE name Eugenie is currently on everyone’s lips – after all, the royal is getting married today.
The Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Eugenie, will wed Jack Brooksbank in the Windsor venue that saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot in May.

How do you pronounce Eugenie correctly?
News bulletins with the announcement of the second royal wedding of the year were all over the TV.
And it turns out we’ve been pronouncing Eugenie’s name all wrong.
Most people say either “You-Janie” or “You-Jee-nie” – but neither of these is right.
According to her mother, Sarah Ferguson, it’s pronounced “YOO-junnee.”
Those who work in the Royal household have also said many of the family simple call her “Genie” while Beatrice often calls her “Eug”.

Eugenie, now 28, revealed the Duchess of York had a clever way of explaining the name when she was a child.
She said: “Whenever we used to meet foreign people who were struggling with it, my mum and I would help them by saying, ‘It’s like Use Your Knees.’
“But whatever. I am now used to every pronunciation.”
What’s Princess Eugenie’s full name?
Her full title is Princess Eugenie of York.
But her full name is Eugenie Victoria Helena of York.
After she marries, it’s thought that she’ll be known as HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank.

Who’s Princess Eugenie named after?
The royals often recycle, preferring to keep traditional regal names in the family.
Prince Eugenie was named after Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, Queen Victoria’s granddaughter.
And her middle name comes from Princess Helena, Queen Victoria’s daughter.

Why Princess Eugenie is REALLY getting married on a Friday – despite its ‘common’ reputation 

PRINCESS Eugenie is tying the knot tomorrow to long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank and selected a Friday for her big day.
Etiquette expert William Hanson revealed to the Sun Online that the day may have a “common” reputation attached to it, but in actual fact it was the perfect fit for the royal.

William said: “More people can make a Saturday wedding than let’s say a Friday wedding, and because Friday or non-Saturday weddings are less popular, they are cheaper.
“So they might appeal more to someone who doesn’t quite have as much a disposable income to spend on a prime or peak season wedding.
“So therefore I suppose they do have a reputation for being slightly not top grade.
“It’s never going to be a top grade wedding on a Friday, I’d imagine a lot of people think.”
Getty – Contributor They have opted for a two-day affair, stretching from Friday to Saturday[/caption]
However, he reasoned that the rules may not really apply when it comes to the royals and can actually have a number of benefits.
The etiquette guru also pointed out that when Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in 2011, they also opted for a Friday.
William said: “It’s harder to get people there on a Friday, especially as we come later on in the year.
“In October, November, December weddings people might have used up their annual leave for the year, it’s not like they have lots of days to play with like if it was a January or February wedding.
“But it won’t be a problem for Princess Eugenie tomorrow, because for starters it’s a royal wedding and you don’t say no to that, even if it is a lesser grade royal wedding than previous ones.”

William said that booking time off work would most likely not be an issue for Princess Eugenie’s guests – many of whom are upper class or celebrities – and also revealed why the day was likely chosen.
He said: “A lot of it will be where it falls within the royal calendar.
“Princess Eugenie and Beatrice are not listed in the court circular, they are not full-time working members of the royal family but their wedding affects the diaries of all of the working members of the royal family.
“Their diaries are often planned one to two years in advance. Even though royal engagements are usually only announced three to four weeks in advance, and that’s for security reasons, their diaries are plotted out.
“So when it comes to actually finding a day of the week and a time of the year that works for everyone, it is sort of arranging the wedding by committee and everyone will have had a say.”
AP:Associated Press Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married on Saturday May 19[/caption]
Princess Eugenie has broken with royal tradition to throw a two-day wedding bash, with a festival-themed party being thrown on Saturday.
A source told the Sunday Times, guests can expect “dodgems and funfair rides, coconut shies, lots of food stalls, loads of cocktails, bloody Marys for the hangovers and a festival vibe”.
William said that the tradition of having a two-day wedding is “over-indulgent.”
He said: “It’s very millennial, of which Eugenie is, it’s very ‘This is my moment and I will make it last as long as I want.’
“But hopefully you only get married once so I can understand it is a happy and positive day, sadly in this day and age there are fewer of them, so why not drag it out, fine.
“And Princess Eugenie’s friends are generally those who can afford to take two days off work or don’t even work.”
Getty – Pool An etiquette expert said that Princess Eugenie didn’t choose a Friday wedding for the cost, but because it would have been the best day for the royal family[/caption]
And he also revealed that having a fun-fair theme breaks from royal tradition.
William shared: “It’s becoming more of a tradition. Go back 20 years and the theme was two people getting married and that was enough.
“It was the nice church service followed by the wedding breakfast and that was that. There might be a theme with the flowers and the table cloth perhaps, but that was sort of the limit in terms of theme.
“But adding in this ‘fun-fair’ or circus cabaret theme, it could be considered a narrative arch I suppose, but I don’t think it is needed.”
Getty – Contributor The couple are getting married at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle[/caption]
Princess Eugenie is getting married in exactly the same location as Prince Harry, Windsor Castle, and William pointed out that undoubtedly comparisons will be made.
William said: “It’s going to be bigger, there are more guests, more celebrities for people to look at. So it won’t feel necessarily as intimate as Harry and Meghan’s.
“In many ways it’s a shame it’s happening this year.
“It’s slightly a poisoned chalice for Eugenie or indeed whoever was getting married directly after Harry and Meghan, especially it being at St George’s in Windsor, you are going to have direct comparisons.”
PA:Press Association William said the two weddings will be heavily compared due to being in the same location[/caption]
He predicted that the day may even “lack the charm and serenity that May had”, because although “Eugenie does lots of marvellous things, she’s not held in the same high regard as Harry.”
William said: “Harry and William are held in such high regard because of their history and their backstory.
“Eugenie is in many ways lucky that she hasn’t had to go through what William and Harry went through. But there isn’t that connection that has been built.”

Although the Queen is to attend the ceremony of her granddaughter’s wedding, and host an afternoon champagne reception, she will most likely be absent from the evening celebrations, according to William.
The etiquette expert said: “It’s unlikely the Queen is going to the fun-fair bit and I don’t think she is going to the evening reception tomorrow either.
“She didn’t go to Harry and Meghan’s either. It’s not that she doesn’t approve of the wedding, she’s an elderly lady and the evening reception is designed for the young.
“And when the Queen is in attendance at any event, there is certain etiquette and protocol that can’t be broken so they don’t want to put a dampener on it.”
Getty – Contributor Princess Eugenie will arrive at the church just before the ceremony starts at 11am[/caption]
And William even predicted that we might see Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle recycling an old outfit for the event.
He said: “The key is they will probably be wearing something that we have seen them in before or a variant thereof.
“It won’t be a brand new outfit really, you don’t upstage the bride.
“Catherine and Meghan are stunning so they can wear a bin liner and look good, so they are in a slightly difficult position.
“So it is probably good that they wear something they have done before, so we don’t get transfixed as to what designer or what it is and who it is they are going to wear as per usual.”

Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas is likely to be invited to Princess Eugenie’s wedding

IT’S often awkward bumping into an ex, and Prince Harry will most likely have to go through this on Friday.
The Duke of Sussex will be attending the wedding of his cousin Princess Eugenie this week, and it’s thought that former flame Cressida Bonas will be on the invite list.
Getty – Contributor Princess Eugenie is getting married on Friday, and Cressida Bonas is likely to be on the guestlist[/caption]
Cressida and Eugenie have been friends for years, and are often pictured at high profile events together.
It was Eugenie who introduced the actress to Prince Harry back in 2012, but the pair went their separate ways two years later so she could focus on her acting.
She has recently performed in the play The Dog Beneath the Skin, where she played the role of a dog jealous of its owner’s fiancée.
It appears there is no bad blood between the pair, as Cressida attended the wedding of her former boyfriend in May, along with Prince Harry’s other famous ex, Chelsy Davy.

Cressida is notoriously private about her love life, but is said to be dating another Harry – Harry Wentworth-Stanley – who is also a friend of Princess Eugenie.
Cressida and her new beau have featured each other on their Instagram accounts, during their various travels together.
Harry Wentworth-Stanley also has royal connections, and met with Prince William in June to open James’ Place, which is “a non-clinical centre for men experiencing suicidal crisis.”
The centre has a particularly poignant meaning for Harry, as his older brother James died by suicide when he was 21.

Princess Eugenie will marry her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank on Friday October 12, and it is set to be a star-studded affair.
Princess Eugenie has a lot of famous friends, including Ellie Goulding and Cara Delevingne, who will be getting their glad rags on.
So will Amal and George Clooney, due to husband-to-be Jack’s role as an ambassador for George’s company, Casamigos Tequila.
