Princess Eugenie showed off her scars as she married Jack Brooksbank in the second royal wedding of the year in Windsor today.
The low back feature on the dress – designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, who founded the British based label Peter Pilotto – was at the specific request of the bride who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis.
As she walked down the aisle, the newest member of the Royal family mouthed to his bride that she looked ‘perfect’.
After a traditional ceremony, during which the maid of honour Princess Beatrice delivered a reading from The Great Gatsby, the couple kissed on the steps to cheers from well-wishers.
Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, watched on having arrived with the Queen amid speculation he might not attend.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to Windsor Castle – the venue for their royal wedding in May.
A star-studded gallery, which included Demi Moore, Kate Moss, Robbie Williams and Naomi Campbell, were treated to a reading from Princess Beatrice of York from The Great Gatsby.
Eugenie, 28, younger daughter of the queen’s third child Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, exchanged vows with Mr Brooksbank, a 32-year-old drinks executive, at Windsor Castle.
The ninth-in-line to the throne is following in the footsteps of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who also chose the venue for their wedding in May.
The ceremony took place at the castle’s 15th Century St George’s Chapel with the Dean of Windsor David Conner officiating.
