An incredible 100,000 people have applied for tickets to attend Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank in the grounds of Windsor Castle next month.
According to Buckingham Palace, those applications have now been whittled down to the successful 1,200 people who will get privileged access to the ceremony.
A spokesperson said: “The couple are delighted Her Majesty The Queen has agreed for the grounds of Windsor Castle to be opened to those wishing to join the celebrations.
“After receiving over 100,000 applications, invitations have now gone out to the 1,200 members of the public who will join them on the day.”
The palace announced in July that Eugenie and Jack wanted members of the public from across the country to join them on their special day.
A palace spokesperson said: “The attendees will view the arrival of the congregation and Members of the Royal Family, listen to a live broadcast of the Marriage Service and watch as the Bride and Groom depart St George’s Chapel at the end of the ceremony.”
Once the service has ended, the newly married couple will undertake a short carriage procession through part of Windsor High Street.
The carriage will process through the grounds of Windsor Castle, departing via Castle Hill to proceed along part of the High Street before returning to the Castle via Cambridge Gate.
Following the conclusion of the carriage procession, The Queen will host a reception for the newlyweds and their guests at Windsor Castle.
