As the world knows, it’s been a busy year for the Royal Family; multiple weddings, engagements, and births- and that’s just six months into the year! The latter part of 2018 is believed to be just as exciting with another wedding and baby.
Princess Eugenie’s wedding is scheduled for October 12, 2018, at St. George’s Chapel- the same chapel where her cousin, Prince Harry, tied the know with American actress, Meghan Markle. Princess Eugenie will be marrying long-time boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank.
While the wedding is believed to draw out quite a crowd, there are two massively important Royals that may not attend the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack.
Prince Philip, Princess Eugenie’s grandfather, has not been keen on Princess Eugenie’s mom, Sarah Ferguson, for several years. Given Prince Philip’s worsening health and distaste for the bride’s mother, several outlets have led fans to believe that he won’t be in attendance at all.
Another potential absent face is the iconic and beloved Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Kate’s absence wouldn’t be because of any bad blood- the two are believed to get along famously. However, October happens to be a very busy for month Kate has her younger sister, Pippa is due with her first child that same month.
While Kate would surely love to attend the wedding, it’s likely that she would be by her sister’s side during the arrival of her first baby instead of attending Princess Eugenie’s wedding. Pippa’s due date has yet to be announced but she’ll likely be missing from the wedding and she happens to deliver her baby on October 12, then it’s likely Kate will be missing it as well. It really all comes down to Kate’s unborn niece or nephew!
With a family like the Royals, the schedules are bound to be busy! I bet they wish they could be in more than one place at a time!
