A guest stoops to collect her hat that blew off in the wind as she arrives to attend the wedding of Britain's Princess Eugenie of York to Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, in Windsor, Britain October 12, 2018.

These concerns aren't popular in Windsor's business community, where the surging popularity of the royal family in recent years - and the afterglow of Harry and Meghan's wedding - has helped bring in visitors in recent months.

Writing in the Times newspaper, commentator Matthew Bell said the grandeur of the wedding reflected Prince Andrew's desire to cement his family's royal status.

One noticeable absentee will be Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, the wife of heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, as she is carrying out an engagement in Scotland.

George and Charlotte are among Princess Eugenie's page boy and bridesmaids, along with Robbie Williams' daughter Theodora.

Because the wedding takes place on a weekday, and they are "minor" royals, it is unlikely to attract the 13 million United Kingdom audience of her cousin's wedding.

Only a few Halloween face masks feature Eugenie's face, though some shopkeepers say that will change in the hours ahead of her wedding.

It also could just be a color that Princess Eugenie likes, as she's worn various versions of red over the years.

Thousands of well-wishers are also expected to line the streets of Windsor to cheer the newly-married couple as they drive past in a carriage procession at 12pm BST.

The nuptials come just five months after the glittering wedding of Prince Harry, younger son of heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, and U.S. actress wife Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, at the same location. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away.

Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are to marry Friday at St. George's Chapel, which is part of the castle complex. Several representatives from the charity were invited to stand inside the grounds of Windsor Castle along with representatives of other charitable organizations supported by the couple.

"And I think that for Princess Eugenie of York, who lives after all just up the road with her father at Royal Lodge, it's the local place".

Her elder sister Princess Beatrice, the maid of honour, will also deliver one of the readings, an extract from The Great Gatsby.
