Royal Wedding: Robbie Williams accused of chewing gum in church

Celebrities joined British royalty at Windsor Castle on Friday for the second big royal wedding of the year, with Princess Eugenie, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, following her cousin Prince Harry down the aisle.

Clad in their wedding attire, the kids looked utterly adorable as they stopped to pose for photographs alongside Eugenie's mother Fergie, Princess Beatrice and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, on leaving the ceremony. It was not certain whether the 92-year-old queen's husband Prince Philip, 97, who no longer carries out official duties, would be present.

"We think we've been blessed this year with two royal weddings", said Phillip Bicknell, the local council deputy leader.

Presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford will bring the appropriate gravitas to an event whose bridal party will include Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the children of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, and Theodora Williams, daughter of pop star and X Factor presenter Robbie Williams.

Eugenie's sister, Princess Beatrice, will read a passage from "The Great Gatsby".

Many took to Twitter to tell Robbie and Ayda they should be very proud parents - and say they think Teddy is the spitting image of her famous dad! But the Duchess of Cornwall will not be attending due to a prior engagement at a school harvest festival in Scotland. In other words, you could subscribe to one of these services to live stream the Princess Eugenie wedding for free on Friday, and then have a few more days to try it out.

"It's very nerve-wracking because you want it to be ideal, but then you realise that you're going to be with the person you love forever and nothing else really matters".

The couple invited 1,200 members of the public to come onto the castle grounds for a closer glimpse of proceedings. The wedding is set to begin at 11 a.m. local time - 6 a.m. ET - at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same location as Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May.

Thousands of well-wishers are also expected to line the streets of Windsor to cheer the newly-married couple as they drive past in a carriage procession at 12pm BST.
