Eugenie's parents are very close despite having divorced in 1996 after tumultuous years of marriage. The ex-Duchess has been involved in many scandals through the years and the royal family has distanced themselves from her although she's always remained very close to her daughters. She was invited to the Sussex wedding, which was a bit of surprise to royal watchers, and she seems thrilled to be included. No doubt she'll be beaming as her younger daughter says 'I do'.

Not to be outdone by Harry and Meghan, Eugenie and Jack will have their share of superstars in attendance. George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams will be in attendance as will Robbie Williams (his daughter is a bridesmaid), Ellie Goulding, Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne. Singer Andrea Boccelli is performing at the ceremony.

All the senior members of the royal family will be in attendance except Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
