Princess Eugenie walked down the aisle to marry Jack Brooksbank on Friday in one of the most anticipated weddings of the year, and she had quite a few surprises hidden up her Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos-designed sleeve.
While she didn’t buck quite as many royal wedding traditions as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did back in May, Eugenie’s ceremony still had more than a few unexpectedly modern touches. Even some of her guests like Cara Delevingne shunned tradition with their stylish outfits.
From her gorgeous gown to her unconventional cake, here are all the ways Princess Eugenie’s wedding broke from royal tradition.
Unlike Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, Princess Eugenie chose not to wear a veil with her dress.
Opting out of a veil was a departure from typical royal wedding style, and was perhaps done to showcase the open-back design of the dress.
Eugenie also used her dress to make an empowering statement.
According to a statement released by Kensington Palace, Eugenie wanted the back of the dress to purposely showcase her scar from a scoliosis correctional surgery she had at age 12.
Most royal brides don’t have a maid of honor, but Princess Beatrice filled the role for Eugenie’s wedding.
Kate Middleton also bucked this tradition by having her sister Pippa Middleton as her maid of honor, but Meghan Markle decided to bring back the tradition by having only children in her bridal party.
