Just a day after our heart's MELTED as Princess Eugenie married her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank in St George's Chapel in Windsor, the beaming couple have already released four official royal wedding photos. 

Princess Eugenie wore an incredible a Peter Pilotto wedding gown (designed by Pilotto and Christopher de Vos) for the ceremony – which incorporated a number of meaningful, personal symbols to the princess, such as a shamrock as a nod to her Irish heritage – and contrary to reports, did change into a formal evening dress for her evening reception at her family home in Windsor Lodge – a beautiful silk Zac Posen creation. The American designer, according to Buckingham Palace, was inspired by Windsor and the surrounding countryside and "the blush of an English rose," when designing the dress.

In the other three photos released, the bridal party was captured in the White Drawing Room in Windsor, including a beaming Prince George next to his sister Princess Charlotte with Jack alongside Theodora, the daughter of Robbie Williams and Ayda Field, and the rest of the page boys and flower girls.

A separate shot was also taken with the immediate members of the royal family, including Princess Eugenie's grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip and her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. Her now-husband's parents were also in the photograph.    

Finally, a beautiful black and white portrait of the happy couple sharing a kiss during the carriage procession was released. The couple said they were "delighted" to share the pictures with the public.

The photos were taken by British fashion photographer Alex Bramall, who said it was "an honour and a privilege" to be invited to photograph the couple. He previously shot the Princess for a profile in Harper's Bazaar. 

Eugenie and Jack exchanged vows in front of their nearest and dearest friends, members of the royal family and 850 guests who were invited to join them on the special day, including celebrity friends such as Liv Tyler, Demi Moore and Cara Delevingne.

They looked genuinely in love and thrilled to be tying the knot, as we all say from the ITV broadcast which attracted over 3 million viewers – the highest view count for the channel since Will and Kate's marriage in 2011. 

Congratulations to the gorgeous couple!

Huge congratulations are in order as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have welcomed their third child. Kate gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on April 23, 2018.

The mum-of-three delivered her little bundle of joy at the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in London, where she also gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Prince William and Prince Harry were also born at St. Mary’s Hospital.

Reports claim that the doting parents will reveal their son’s name in the coming days.

We are thrilled for Prince William and Kate. What a special time for the family-of-five.

There are only a handful of weeks to go until the Royal Wedding and we are beyond excited for the big day. Our minds have been buzzing with questions about the wedding, from the guest list to the all-important question- what will Meghan’s dress look like?

The former actress has won us over with her edgy and chic style, so we’re sure her wedding dress will be a true crowd pleaser. Rumour has it that Meghan will follow in Kate’s footsteps and opt for a lace dress with long sleeves.

The designer behind the bride-to-be’s dress has yet to be confirmed but rumours have been whirling around that the Suits star has chosen Ralph & Russo, who also designed the stunning dress she wore in her official engagement photos.

Fashion trends have drastically changed since the 1980s, so Meghan won’t be wearing a similar dress to Princess Diana, but she will be honouring Harry’s late-mum in a very special way.

Meghan may be wearing the Spencer Tiara which Diana donned on her wedding day back in the July of 1981. Wearing this tiara would be such a sentimental move by Meghan.

Both Meghan and her fiancé Prince Harry have been vocal about how they will honour Diana’s legacy on this journey, with Harry using diamonds from her collection in Meghan’s engagement ring.

Speaking of his darling mom, Harry shared, “The little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewellery collection to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”

Harry believes that Meghan and Diana would have been the best of friends, and stated that they’d have been “as thick as thieves.”

He shared, “She’d be over the moon for me, but she would have been best friends with Meghan.”

He’s been linked to some of the most stunning women in showbiz, but it seems Prince Harry may at long last have found the one.

According to The Express, the popular Royal family member is involved in a secret romance with American actress Meghan Markle.

Sources told the paper that Harry is “besotted” with the 35-year-old actress, who is best known for playing Rachel Zane in Suits.

The prince is said to be “happier than he’s been for many years” but is eager to keep his romance quiet as he knows things will change once it goes public.

Harry is believed to have met the brunette model while visiting Toronto this summer to launch the Invictus Games.

Meghan – who split with her husband Trevor Engelson in 2013 – was spotted in the UK in late June and early July.

Reports suggest she has already been introduced to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

We just can't get enough of watching Princess Charlotte grow, and every time we see her she's even more like Kate.

The royal baby delighted crowds outside Buckingham Palace today, making her first appearance on the famous balcony as part of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations.

Princess Charlotte appeared on the balcony in Kate’s arms, while Prince William talked big brother Prince George through the festivities.

Of course, this is George’s second official appearance on the Palace balcony, and it seems he’s already well-seasoned in royal protocol – not one little bit of boldness in him!

Oh no, Prince Philip has made a royal faux pas yet AGAIN.  

Queen Elizabeth II’s husband made headlines last week when he told a photographer to hurry up and “just take the f***ing picture.”

Now, the 94-year-old has done it again during a visit to the Chadwell Heath Community Centre in London alongside his wife yesterday afternoon.

Many readers took offence when Prince Philip was speaking to a group of female nurses at the centre and asked them, “who do you sponge off?”

ITV News quoted Nusrat Zamir as saying, “We’re all married, so it’s our husbands.”

The nurse explained that Prince Philip was “just teasing and it’s similar to what I call my husband – the wallet.”

Prince Philip is famous for making inappropriate comments when on Royal outings. While many people view him with the same eyes you would the lovable grandad you can’t bring anywhere for fear of what they'll say, many others feel that as a senior figure of the monarchy, his comments are not acceptable.

Here are some of the Prince’s most outrageous comments to date. 

1. An event for The Battle of Britain. Prince Philip tells the photographer to "take the f***ing picture."

2. On a trip to China in 1986, the Prince told a British student that if he stayed there much longer, he'd "go home with slitty eyes." 

3. In 2002, he asked and Aboriginal leader, William Brin, in Australia if the aborigines "still throw spears at each other?" Mr Brin replied saying, "No, we don't do that any more." When he was asked about the incident Mr Brin said that while he was "quite surprised" by the question, he found it very funny. 

4. When Prince Philip met the President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjoy, Mr Obasanjoy was in his ceremonial dress. The Prince remarked on this saying, "You look like you're ready for bed."

5. When Ashely Banjo's dance group Diversity won Britain's Got Talent in 2009, the Prince did it again by asking the multi-ethnic group, "Are you all one family?" 

6. When speaking to Lord John Taylor of Warwick – a Briton of Jamaican origin – the Prince asked, "What exotic part of the world do you come from?" To which the Lord politely replied, "Birmingham".

7. When Prince Philip visited the Cayman Islands in 1994, he somewhat surprised the natives by asking, "Aren't most of you descended from pirates?"

The allowance given to Prince William, Duchess Kate, and Prince Harry by Prince Charles has now been revealed. And… let's just say, wow, we would really appreciate a similarly titled sort throwing a bit of love this way too.

It turns out that good old Prince Charlie is very charitable when it comes to supporting his children and daughter-in-law. He also helps out numerous international charitable causes that are close to his heart.

The Prince of Wales, 66, gets most of this money (a cool €30m in the last year) from the Royal Duchy estate. This cash pays for his private and public lifestyle.

Although William and Harry are both employed, they still receive quite a substantial amount of money from their dad to help cover the expense of official royal activities: more than €4m between them, in fact.

And in the same report, which has been published by the British royal family, it turns out – surprisingly – that they pay plenty of taxes too.

A breakdown of how much exactly goes to Wills, Harry, and Kate respectively is sadly not given but we are willing to bet that the princess spends a good chunk of that on her gorgeous wardrobe choices. 

Lucky gal!
