Princess Eugenie joined her cousin Prince William in Chester on Friday to celebrate the Duke of Westminster's wedding to Olivia Henson. The wedding was held at at Chester Cathedral at noon in what was dubbed the high-society wedding of the year. 

Not only were 400 guests in attendance, but even more gathered on the streets outside to catch a glimpse of one of the UK's most eligible bachelors wed his long-term love.

Princess Eugenie

The Prince of Wales was believed to be the only senior member of the British royal family to attend the high society wedding of the year, where he was taking on the important role of usher for his long-term friend Hugh Grosvenor. However, Eugenie delighted fans with her surprise appearance, turning heads in a gentle olive green wedding guest dress featuring a V-neckline and close-fitting cut by Joseph. She carried a handbag by Anya Hindmarch.

Sarah Ferguson's daughter is no stranger to dressing for high-profile events, regularly attending royal weddings, red carpets and banquets with her husband Jack Brooksbank. She proved her sartorial prowess once again for her latest outing, completing her outfit with chic Aquazzura high heels and a stunning fascinator which featured chic netted detail by Emily London.

Snapped alongside her good friend, former Vogue editor Violet Henderson Vestey, Eugenie's auburn hair had been styled into effortless loose curls and her makeup remained subtle, with flawless skin, a sweep of blush along her cheekbones and long lashes highlighting her features.

Rosie van Cutsem

Rosie van Cutsem is no stranger to high society weddings, with Prince William attending her nuptials in 2013, so it's no surprise she knew exactly how to dress for the occasion.

She opted for a summer-ready yellow floral dress, complete with statement waist-belt.
