Wait, what?

2018 is undoubtedly the year of royal weddings, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot in May and Princess Eugenie set to wed her partner Jack Brooksbank in October.

While the millennial couples are reported to be very close – living just a stone’s throw from each other in Kensington Palace, sharing a wedding year is undoubtedly making them even closer, with Princess Eugenie reportedly taking a few leaves out of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s book.

Both weddings share St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, as a venue and both incorporate environmentally friendly details, but it's the guest list that really shows their similarities, with both couples inviting members of the public to attend inside the Precints of Windsor Castle.

And it doesn't stop there - both weddings are set to be A-list, with Harry and Meghan's going down as one of the most star-studded in history.

So who are the famous faces we can expect to see in the pews at Eugenie and Jack's October wedding?

Well, James Blunt, Pippa Middleton, Jack Whitehall, Jimmy Carr and Cara Delevingne to name a few. There were even rumours at one point that Ellie Goulding might be a bridesmaid.

But it's Amal and George Clooney that everyone has been talking about this week, with the previous attendees at Harry and Meghan's wedding rumoured to be making a return to St George's Chapel for Eugenie's nuptials.

But how do the A-list couple know the royals? Well, it’s actually Groom-to-be Jack Brooksbank that boasts the celebrity connection.

Jack is actually an ambassador for George and Rande Gerber’s company, Casamigos Tequila, in the UK.

The best news? You might actually be able to attend alongside Amal and George.

So if you missed an invitation to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, here’s hoping you’re in luck with Princess Eugenie’s.
