Why Camilla Parker-Bowles Is Skipping Princess Eugenie's Wedding

Why Camilla Parker-Bowles Is Skipping Princess Eugenie's Wedding

'We learnt something yesterday that neither of us had heard before that Catherine and Meghan will wear something they've worn before so as not to upstage the bride?' He said.

Fergie has apparently also been informed that she must avoid three members of the royal family on the day: Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Princess Anne.

Camilla Parker-Bowles will apparently not attend this week's Royal Wedding. "Royals don't like to disappoint".

The ninth in line to the throne is due to marry her fiance at Windsor Castle on Friday, and the Duke of York shared throwback images of them as children ahead of their big day. "I know it seems odd that Camilla's missing Eugenie's wedding but it doesn't indicate any malice or ill-feeling", she tweeted. "Given she'd already committed to attending a school event it's duty first", Victoria, whose father previously worked as The Queen's press secretary, explained.


Camilla reportedly has a prior engagement at a school near her Scottish home Birkhall, believed to have been arranged, before the date for the nuptials was announced. "She will have spoken to Eugenie about it".

The pair has chosen a London cake designer, Sophie Cabot, to create the work of art for their big day.

Eugenie and Jack will marry on 12 October in front of 800 guests in the same chapel where Eugenie's cousin Harry married Meghan Markle in May.

She'll be creating a red velvet chocolate cake, described as a "traditional cake, with a modern feel".
