Last week, we learned that Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank were going to copy some elements of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. We already knew that Eugenie and Jack’s wedding ceremony would be held at the chapel at Windsor Castle, and that chances are pretty good that the vibe will feel a lot like Meg & Harry’s wedding. Last week, Eugenie and Jack announced that they too were inviting members of the public to come and stand around outside of the chapel. The tickets will be given away by a lottery system, and 1200 tickets will be offered.
Many people – myself included – were like “is there really THAT much excitement for Eugenie’s wedding?” I know British peeps love a royal wedding, but I did wonder. As it turns out, I wasn’t the only one wondering. Daily Mail columnist Jan Moir wrote a very mean-spirited editorial about how Eugenie is too big for her royal britches and Eugenie has some bloody nerve to think that she’s as popular as Harry and Meghan. It was all very anti-York. I didn’t cover it because I thought the piece was just really mean. I question why Eugenie is “copying” Meghan and Harry too, but hell, it’s HER wedding and she can do what she wants.
As it turns out, Eugenie’s mom Sarah Ferguson read the Moir column and she had some sh-t to say. She let someone else do the talking though – Fergie posted an Instagram of a letter sent to the Daily Mail from Sarah Wade, who defended Eugenie and slammed Moir’s spitefulness.

I mean… I agree with Fergie and Sarah Wade and everybody else. I thought it was an oddity, as I said, that Eugenie would decide to copy something from Harry and Meghan’s wedding, but honestly… it doesn’t even matter that much. No one should be writing screeds about how Eugenie is the devil for… wanting attention on her wedding day…? Every bride wants to be the center of attention. And Eugenie is a princess, she’s the Queen’s granddaughter, and she’s getting married at the Windsor Castle chapel. People WILL want to see her and they’re want to wish her well. Let her enjoy her day without turning everything into a five-act drama.
