Eugenie, ninth-in-line to the throne, has copied much of her cousin's blueprint for her big day.

The Queen's granddaughter Princess Eugenie married wine merchant Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle on Friday in front of celebrities and Britain's senior royals including Prince Harry and wife Meghan who Wednesday at the same venue in May. 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.

The 58-year-old has previously opened up to media about battling with her weight following the birth of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie in 1988 and 1990.

There were rumors that Eugenie would wear the York Diamond Tiara that her mother, Fergie, wore to her wedding in 1986.

The Duchess of Cornwall, however, will not be attending as she has a prior engagement, while the Duke of Edinburgh, 97, may decide to skip the celebration depending on his well-being.

Eugenie, 28, younger daughter of the queen's third child, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, tied the knot with Brooksbank, 32, in the castle's 15th Century St George's Chapel.

Senior British royals have begun arriving at St George's Chapel for the wedding of Princess Eugenie.

Eugenie's elder sister, Princess Beatrice, the maid of honor, will deliver a reading, an extract from the novel "The Great Gatsby".

The couple married in the same venue used in May by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who is now known as the Duchess of Sussex.

They noted the expense could have been spared had Eugenie not insisted on having a horse-drawn carriage parade around Windsor - just like Meghan and her prince. Eugenie's father, Prince Andrew, is a patron of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The royal family have also arrived.

The couple's reception will now take place at the Royal Lodge, the York family home, about three mouths south from Windsor Castle.

Robbie and Ayda have always kept Teddy away from the spotlight but on Friday she was front and centre as she joined other members of the bridal party including Prince George and Princess Charlotte in walking down the aisle.
