Another royal wedding! Who Princess Eugenie will invite to her October nuptials

Princess Eugenie, 27-year-old granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, will marry her long-term boyfriend this October, and the public is invited to the royal wedding affair!
 

Having announced their engagement in January this year, Princess Eugenie will be getting wed to Jack Brooksbank after dating for seven years.

Yesterday, the royal family also officially announced that 1,200 members of the public will be invited inside the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding, where they'll be able to watch the celebrations unfold.

It is set to take place at St George's Chapel - the same place Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married in May. 

To stand a chance to be one of the 1,200 guests, members of the public must submit their details to a ballot by 8 August.

Also invited to the royal wedding are representatives of charities supported by the couple, members of the community in Windsor, and children from schools that Princess Eugenie attended. 

The princess, who is ninth in line to the throne, will keep her royal title when she marries, with the option of taking on her husband's surname. 

Like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the newest royal couple will also ride through Windsor in a carriage.

Princess Eugenie, who works as a director at gallery Hauser and Wirth, is the second daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York. 

Mr Brooksbank is a former manager of Mayfair club Mahiki and the couple met while skiing in the Swiss resort of Verbier.

The two got engaged after Mr Brooksbank asked for her hand in front of a volcano at sunset in Nicaragua in January.
