Prince Andrew shares family photos in run-up to royal wedding

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will marry on Friday evening, Australian time.

This honor befalls the groom's younger brother, who works in business development at Troy Asset Management in London.

Earlier this week, Eugenie posted a photo on Instagram of her and Beatrice as bridesmaids with the caption #tbt sisterly love.

The Duchess of Cambridge will probably choose something understated, partly to ensure she doesn't detract from the bride and partly to ensure she's able to keep Prince George and Princess Charlotte in check (rumoured to be page boy and flower girl).

Isla is the 6-year-old daughter of Autumn and Peter Philips.

Mia Tindall, Zara and Mike Tindall's eldest daughter, will take up the same position.

Maud is the daughter of Lady Frederick Windsor and Lord Frederick Windsor.

Guests at the wedding - which will be televised on ITV's This Morning - include the Clooneys, artist Tracey Emin and Robbie and Ayda Williams - although singers Elton John and Ed Sheeran have had to turn down their invitations because they are on tour.

The other page boy will be Louis de Givenchy, 6, the son of Zoe De Givenchy and Olivier De Givenchy.

James, 10, is Louise's younger brother and Eugenie's cousin. And in regal style, you can still expect a whole lot of grandeur. Here's the grand cost of princess Eugenie's wedding. Coinage, life well spent.

Rumours that Theodora could be a bridesmaid surfaced in July, with the Mail on Sunday revealing Robbie and Ayda have been friends with Eugenie and her husband-to-be Jack Brooksbank for years. London's contemporary-art gallery Hauser & Wirth and New York's online auction house Paddle8 are just two of the establishments featured on her résumé.

It had been rumoured that Princess Eugenie would have her sister as her maid-of-honour and this is indeed the case with Princess Beatrice announced as chief bridesmaid. With over 850 invited guests, including the royally acquainted Clooneys and Beckhams, this is sure to be one swanky shindig.

The BBC reportedly caused a ruckus by refusing to broadcast this wedding live, fearing a ratings flop. But that's just one tiny drop in this majestic bucket. The wedding is expected to total $2.5 million.

She'll be creating a red velvet chocolate cake, described as a "traditional cake, with a modern feel".

"Some of the royals have very much forgiven Fergie for her misdemeanours, but the likes of Prince Philip and Princess Anne still don't see her point of view", another palace source explained. [MUSIC] Coinage. Life, well spent.
