While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding had lots of personal touches to it, including a few that departed from royal tradition, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding was more traditional. But they also brought their own style to the occasion.
Princess Eugenie — Prince Harry and William’s first cousin and granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II — doesn’t have to abide by the same protocols as other royals because she isn’t a “working royal.” This means that she also typically has fewer royal protocol rules to consider.
Princess Eugenie’s wedding ended up being a mix of traditional and conservative with modern twists and elements that were very personal to the couple.
Here are 22 photos to compare the two royal weddings of the year.
Princess Eugenie and Prince Harry chose the same venue for their royal weddings.
Meghan and Harry had the same venue for their wedding: St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The Gothic-style chapel is also where Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, had their civil ceremony.

For their royal wedding in April 2011, Prince William and Kate Middleton chose Westminster Abbey, which can seat up to 2,000 guests and has a rather long aisle.
In comparison, St. George’s Chapel holds up to 800 guests and doesn’t have as long of a walk to the altar. It is also located further away from Buckingham Palace.
A smaller venue seems to suit both Princess Eugenie and Prince Harry, given that, unlike William, both are unlikely to see the throne.
Like Harry and Meghan, Eugenie had a star-studded guest list.

Ellie Goulding, Cara DeLevigne, Demi Moore, and Naomi Campbell were just a few of the A-list celebrities on Princess Eugenie’s guest list.
