Princess Eugenie is preparing for her royal wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October, and has revealed that the pair are doing everything they can to make it an eco-friendly affair. Speaking candidly in her interview alongside sister Beatrice in the September issue of British Vogue, she said (via The Telegraph): "It's been eye-opening. My whole house is anti-plastic now - and Jack and I want our wedding to be like that as well." During the chat, she also revealed that the wedding-planning process has been a little daunting at times.

"It's very nerve-wracking because you want it to be perfect but then you realise that you're going to be with the person you love forever and nothing else really matters," she said. She and Jack are due to marry at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same location of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's ceremony, on October 12.
The couple - just like Harry and Meghan - will also be inviting members of the public to attend their royal wedding. The 28-year-old said that they were "excited" to share their day with the public in a recent Instagram post. Eugenie shared two never-before-seen photos of the pair to confirm the exciting news, and told her followers: "Jack and I are excited to be able to invite people to watch our wedding inside the Precinct of Windsor Castle.

It was also recently revealed that although Jack is marrying into the royal family, he is not expected to be granted a title – instead remaining a member of the public, according to the Mail on Sunday. This will mean that Eugenie will be known as HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank. Reports say that Eugenie is not at all bothered by this, and if anything has avoided any special treatment.
