Why Princess Eugenie's wedding dress meant so much to women with scars

Princess Eugenie was given away by her father Prince Andrew, as around 850 guests - including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Eugenie's mother Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, and her sister Princess Beatrice - watched on.

The work of designers Christopher De Vos and Peter Pilotto, the shamrocks were one of several discreet nods to the couple's roots and their history together.

She then posted three further messages saying how "proud" she was of her daughter and new son-in-law Jack Brooksbank - but made no mention of Harry and Meghan.

In a video titled "My wedding day and anniversary makeup" which was uploaded in July this year, Hannah shows viewers how she created her makeup look for her own wedding, and shares a few bridal makeup gems of wisdom.

The princess received treatment at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH), and ahead of her big day she reflected on the surgery and the importance of the charity during an interview with ITV's This Morning.

BBC blamed a failure of its voice recognition system for a subtitle that briefly referred to Eugenie's "beautiful breasts" rather than her "beautiful dress" as she walked up the stairs to the chapel.

Florida coast evacuated as hurricane strengthens into Category 2 storm
State officials said 285 people in Mexico Beach had refused to leave ahead of the hurricane despite a mandatory evacuation order. When hurricane expert Phil Klotzbach is forecasting a storm he relies heavily on two factors: water temperature and wind shear.

It comes after Prince Andrew rejected calls from within Buckingham Palace for a more modest wedding for Eugenie and Jack amid concerns about the public cost.

The newlyweds chose Alex Bramall, who previously photographed Eugenie for a 2016 spread in Harper's Bazaar, to capture the big day. Her Majesty The Queen; His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Geroge and Princess Charlotte were all in attendance. "It did not take away from the wedding - which was somewhat over the top!" another netizen wrote.

The auto has been in the Royal family since 1978, when it was presented to Queen Elizabeth for her Silver Jubilee by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, and is occasionally used on events of this type.

The stunning blush gown was designed by Zac Posen, who said he was inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the surrounding countryside when designing the evening dress.

However, since the bride opted for an outfit change, it wouldn't be a surprise if her friend also did.

Eugenie set off her evening look with diamond and emerald drop earrings which were a wedding gift from the groom, and a hair slide belonging to the Queen. During the interview, Eugenie said it was love at first sight, sharing, "We fell in love and we have the same passions and drive for life".
