Here's how you can get yourself an invite to the next Royal Wedding

Here's how you can get yourself an invite to the next Royal Wedding

29 million people watched the royal wedding, and although only 600 people actually attended the ceremony - which was held at St. George's Chapel back in May - we were, for all intents and purposes, there. This is, of course, a result of all the press coverage that surrounded the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. However, the ensuing day didn't just meet our expectations, it surpassed them.

There was Meghan's understated but elegant gown, Givenchy by way of Clare Waight Keller, her sexier evening ensemble, courtesy of Stella McCartney - and then all her meaningful accoutrements - namely, the late Princess Diana's aquamarine ring being her "something blue". 

But if you really were hurt because you didn't receive an invitation to the now-Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding, rest assured that you may have another shot at seeing some royals tie the knot.

Princess Eugenie is due to wed Jack Brooksbank on 12 October at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle - the same venue that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry married in two months ago. However, this is not the only way in which the princess and her fiancée are following in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's footsteps.

Today, Kensington Royal's official family Instagram account announced that "Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank would like to invite members of the public to join their wedding," and we couldn't be more excited.

"Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank would like to invite members of the public to join their wedding on 12 October, 2018, to attend inside the Precincts of Windsor Castle," the statement read.

"Members of the public who would like to attend can fill in an application form (for more information see the link in our bio on our profile page). 1,200 members of the public will be able to view the arrival of the congregation and Members of the Royal Family, listen to a live broadcast of the Marriage Service and watch the start of the procession as the couple depart at the end of the Wedding ceremony."

But while Meghan and Prince Harry only invited members of the public who have carried out notable work for charitable organisations, this doesn't appear to be a proviso for those who want to apply to attend Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding. According to the royal family's website, the conditions are as follows:

"Applicants must be over 5 years of age and children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Applicants must be living at a UK (or British Forces) postal address.

Individuals can only apply once, not multiple times.

Groups of families or friends (up to 4 individuals) should apply on the same form. Should one member of the group be successful in the ballot, all members will be considered to have been successful. The individual completing the application form must seek the permission of the other group members prior to providing their personal information in the application form."

As well as welcoming 1,200 members of the public to their nuptials, the couple will also invite representatives of charities they support to celebrate their big day. Members of the Windsor community, children from local schools, and some members of the royal household staff are also expected to be in attendance.
