Princess Eugenie reportedly had an unexpected inspiration for her second wedding dress. In her wedding to Jack Brooksbank, which took place on October 2018, the royal swapped her first wedding dress for a pink bridal gown. The first dress, made by Peter Pilotto, was much more traditional.

Not only did the unconventional colour of the second dress catch the attention of royal watchers, but her decision to base the dress on a film actress also shocked royal viewers.

Princess Eugenie based the design of the dress on actress Grace Kelly’s dress in the 1955 film, To Catch a Thief.

The dress worn by Eugenie was designed by American Zac Posen.

According to the Royal Family’s website, the colour of the dress was inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the blush of an English rose.

The website added: “Mr Posen took his inspiration from the White Rose of York.”

The gown went on display at Windsor Castle alongside Eugenie’s first wedding dress, her sister Princess Beatrice’s maid-of-honour dress, and her bridesmaid Theodora Williams’ frock.

Speaking in the audio guide, Eugenie explained: “I wanted something reminiscent of Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief so I showed that for reference and Zac came up with this silk that he’d found from Manchester.

“Every single draping effect, every single detail, every button, it’s all painstakingly done by him and his team.”

Alongside her first wedding dress, Princess Eugenie wore an emerald tiara/

She borrowed the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara from her late grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, pairing it with the white Peter Polotto dress.

The tiara is made of brilliant and rose-cut diamonds set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side of a 93.7-carat emerald centre stone.

It is estimated to be worth £10million.

The Princess wore the headpiece with a pair of matching diamond and emerald drop earrings, a wedding present from her husband.

The couple now has one child together, August, who was born on February 9, 2021.

Eugenie previously lived with her husband in Frogmore Cottage, on the grounds of the Queen’s Windsor Estate

But the couple recently relocated to Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace.

The move was revealed last week when the royal shared a video from inside her home for not-for-profit organisation, The Anti Slavery Collective.

Eugenie was recorded sitting inside one of the rooms, wearing a hoodie and chatting to the camera.
