PRINCESS Eugenie is now a married woman, having wed Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Eugenie, 28, the daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah 'Fergie' Ferguson, married her boyfriend of seven years in a ceremony attended by most senior members of the Royal Family - and a roll call of A-list guests (some surprising - Demi Moore? Ricky Martin?).

First - what we're all here to see.

THE DRESS:

Eugenie's dress was created by designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, who founded British-based label Peter Pilotto.

The cut of the dress showed off a scar on Eugenie's back from a scoliosis operation she had at the age of 12 - this was a deliberate choice by the princess, who wanted to wear her scars with pride.

She chose to wear the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, lent to her by her grandmother, the Queen.

The tiara features rose cut diamonds set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side. She paired it with diamond and emerald earrings, a wedding gift from the groom.

Here's the couple at the altar - Eugenie's wedding ring is a piece of Welsh gold gifted by the Queen herself (I'm sure she has plenty):

They didn’t get the same vicar as Harry and Meghan’s wedding, a source of great disappointment.

It's been a traditional ceremony - but one reading, from Princess Beatrice, stuck out.

Beatrice read a passage from The Great Gatsby, about a man possessed with a "rare smile" that could make you feel like the only person in the room. Eugenie had previously told reporters Jack possesses just that quality.

There's just one problem - the passage actually a description of a conman who uses his charm to lure unsuspecting victims:

 

Husband and wife kiss.

That kiss.

After their holy connubials, Eugenie and Jack were whisked away in a pumpkin-style coach:

Here's recently-wed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle:

Fergie Ferg and Princess Beatrice:

 

Beatrice this hat is nowhere near ridiculous enough. Please see us after class.

And can we talk about Fergie ditching the royal protocol when she got out of her town car, and running over to the crowds like she was The Rock meeting fans at a movie premiere?

 

Someone’s clearly stoked she’s out of the royal bad books for the day.

Rumour has it music legend Holly Valance was to sing an acoustic version of Kiss Kiss as Eugenie walked down the aisle (nb - I started that rumour).

Here's Demi Moore, looking like she just killed a man and used her dress to soak up his blood:

Kate Moss brought her mini-me daughter:

Pixie Geldof was among the early guests struggling to hold onto their hats in high winds:

Chelsy Davy, who famously dated Prince Harry for seven years (from 2004 until 2011) was also among the earliest arrivals.

It's understood Princess Eugenie and Chelsy have been close friends for years - and it was actually Eugenie who introduced her to Harry.

Another Hollywood star on the invite list - actress Liv Tyler for some reason:

She ain't famous, but we have to salute the strong hat game on this lady:

One A-list couple who are not in attendance, ending months of speculation: George Clooney and wife Amal.

Brooksbank works as the European Brand Manager for Clooney's tequila company and the Hollywood couple were among the famous faces at Harry and Meghan's wedding in May.

Overnight, Eugenie and her fiancee fronted up to the cameras for an interview on ITV, the channel airing the wedding in the UK after the BBC knocked back the option to air the event.

Eugenie admitted the prospect of such a big wedding was "a bit scary," but at the end of the day you get to marry the person you love … and you're going to be at the end of the aisle, and I'm going to be running towards you!"

The nuptials came five months after the other royal wedding of 2018, Prince Harry's wedding to American actress Meghan Markle.
