The royal gifts

The pair were given touching gifts which they showcased on the day of their royal wedding. Jack gave Eugenie a pair of stunning diamond and emerald drop earrings, which complemented her tiara, while Jack proudly wore a tie pin that features the white rose of York – a nod to Eugenie's family – and the same pink padparadscha sapphire as Eugenie's engagement ring. The bride's mother Sarah, Duchess of York gave Jack the tie pin as a wedding gift; the groom's brother and best man Thomas Brooksbank also wore the same pin.

Horses and carriage procession

After the ceremony, the newlyweds are took the Carriage Procession in the Scottish State Coach through the streets of Windsor. Originally known as the Cambridge Coach, the Scottish State Coach was remodelled in 1968, and has the emblems of the Order of the Thistle, the highest order of chivalry in Scotland, and the Scottish version of the Royal Arms were painted on the sides. The carriage will be pulled by four Windsor Grey horses: Plymouth, Milford Haven, Tyrone and Storm.

The first kiss as a married couple

Eugenie and Jack left the church as a married couple and stepped out into the winds of Windsor, smiling and giggling as they prepared for the first kiss! Jack placed his arm around his new wife's waist as they kissed to cheers from the crowds and gusts behind them. The bridesmaids and pageboys followed behind the bride's beautiful veil as she walked on to the carriage.

PDA from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

While waiting for the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank to take place on Friday morning, Prince William and Kate Middleton looked adorable as they held hands. Kate - who was dressed in beautiful fuschia by Alexandar McQueen - placed her hand underneath Willam's, which was rested on his knee. They shared the tender moment before watching the ceremony take place, as their children, Charlotte and George, fulfilled their roles as bridesmaid and page boy respectively.

Jack teared up 

Jack could not hold back the tears as Princess Eugenie entered St. George's chapel. Seeing his bride, the 32-year-old man-of-the-moment removed his glasses and shed a few tears before the couple exchanged vows in front of hundreds of guests - including senior members of the royal family. Eugenie, 28, looked delightful in her stunning wedding dress, which was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.

Princess Eugenie's scar - the full story 

Princess Eugenie had her gown made especially to show the scar she has from spinal surgery in a bid to redefine beauty on her wedding day. The Princess wore a stunning Peter Pilotto gown with a plunging V-neckline at the front and back for her nuptials to Jack Brooksbank, and first hinted that she would show her scar in an interview with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, which aired on This Morning on Friday morning. She said: "The RNOH is a huge charity - the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital – I'm patron of their appeal and I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you’ll see on Friday, but it's a lovely way to honour the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this," Eugenie said. "I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that. So that's one really important one."

All about the Queen's outfit

The 92-year-old's outfit consisted of an ice blue cashmere coat with large gold and diamond buttons, paired with an ice blue and peach scalloped lamé dress. Her Majesty completed the look with a co-ordinating hat and shoes. Meanwhile, Prince Philip wore a morning suit.

All about the bridesmaid and pageboy outfits 

Speaking about Eugenie's bridemaid and pageboy outfits, Pepa Gonzalez, founder of Pepa & Co and designer of Pippa Middleton's bridal party outfits said: "The bridesmaid and page boy outfits are classic, elegant and a hint of vibrant green print on the sashes and cummerbunds is the first time we have seen this on the children's outfits at a Royal wedding. The beautiful Royal blue piping on the page boy shirt is a classic British and Spanish style and teamed with velvet trousers looks incredibly smart. When the bridal party is made up of young children, it's important to have clothing that the children will be comfortable in to prevent fidgeting. They all look incredibly happy and relaxed but taking their duties very seriously."

Andrea Bocelli performs Ave Maria 

Following the pair exchanging vows, the congregation listened to a stunning performance of Ave Maria from Andrea Bocelli. The song was shortly followed by a reading from Charles Brooksbank. Princess Beatrice then did a reading from Great Gatsby. It read: "[Gatsby’s smile had] a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life…it understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey."

The bride has arrived! Find out about her dress 

Princess Eugenie and her father, Prince Edward, have arrived! The bride looked glowing in a off-the-shoulder gown and waved to the crowds. The dress has been designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. Her Royal Highness has been wearing designs by the brand for several years. The stunning gown was developed layer by layer, constructing it from the corset and the complex underskirt to the fitted bodice and full pleated skirt. It also features a neckline that folds around the shoulders to a low back that drapes into a flowing full length train. The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis.

Wedding rehearsals with the bridesmaids

A source revealed to HELLO! that Robbie Williams and Ayda Field's daughter, Theodora, had stolen the show as the royal wedding rehearsal. Jack and Ayda were united with each other at the five star hotel they were both staying at on the eve of 2018's second royal wedding, and the insider said: "Jack and Ayda caught up later that night and he told her how sweet Teddy had been. Ayda was laughing about the need to pop to M&S to pick up some Percy Pig sweeties, presumably in case of bribing emergencies!"

Jack's last night as a single man

Jack spent the evening before his wedding day at Coworth Park hotel, the same hotel where Prince Harry stayed the night before his wedding, with his brother Tom, and spent the evening with his close friends and family. A source told HELLO! that the Casamigos European Brand Manager was quick to shake hands with members of staff, and visited the bar where he was greeted by friends with congratulations and cheers. When a friend asked him if he was ready for the wedding, the source said: "He smiled and laughed and said he wasn't at all. He said he was terrified and everyone laughed."
