Princess Alexandra to miss the royal wedding after breaking her arm

The Queen’s cousin Princess Alexandra is to miss the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank after breaking her arm.

The 81-year-old royal has been told to rest by doctors, and as a result, will miss the ceremony.

Princess Alexandra is not the only member of The Royal Family to be absent from Eugenie’s wedding today.

The Duchess of Cornwall will be absent because she already has a prior commitment.

According to The Sun on Sunday, Camilla will instead conduct an engagement at a school in Scotland keeping a promise she made to the schoolchildren over eight months ago.

It is understood that the Duchess will be the only senior member of The Royal Family to be absent from the ceremony, despite the Duke and Duchess of York trying to persuade her otherwise.

Speaking to The Sun, a source said: “When this date was proposed, she said that regrettably, she couldn’t come.

“The family understood, particularly Eugenie, and were fine about it owing to her previous commitment. Camilla didn’t want to let anyone down.”
