Eugenie had joined her grandmother the Queen and cousin Prince William at the event, which saw 8,000 guests invited to the palace in recognition of work they have done in their local communities. Her style statement could be seen as a sweet tribute to her fiancé Jack Brooksbank, as they are currently planning their nuptials at St George's Chapel, Windsor in October. Eugenie announced her engagement in January, revealing that Jack proposed during a holiday in Nicaragua that month.
