The 5-year-old future king and his 3-year-old kid sister were in fine form at cousin Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank Friday morning at Windsor Castle - the same location where, just five months earlier, they stepped up for uncle Prince Harry and his bride, Meghan Markle. Meanwhile Prince Philip wore grey trousers, a black jacket and a tan vest.

Crowds are gathering outside Windsor Castle ahead of Britain's second royal wedding of the year Friday with Princess Eugenie set to Wednesday a tequila brand executive in a gala ceremony.

The couple invited 1,200 members of the public to come onto the castle grounds for a closer glimpse of proceedings.

Michael Taylor, a drummer from Chicago who toured Windsor Castle on Wednesday told the Associated Press that he had "no interest" in the October 12 wedding.

In spite of choosing the same venue as her cousin Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle in May, with numerous same common elements including inviting more than 1,000 charity workers invited to watch from the grounds of Windsor Castle, there was a more low-key atmosphere.

The couple got engaged in January when Brooksbank, 32, proposed during a holiday trip to Nicaragua in Central America.

The Duke of York has shared a series of family photos on his official Twitter account, as the royal wedding approaches.

Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle on Friday in front of celebrities and Britain's senior royals including Prince Harry and wife Meghan who Wednesday at the same venue in May.

The low neckline of the dress accentuated the bride's elegant emerald drop earrings, which were given to her as a wedding gift from her groom Jack. Part of the draw will be the chance to catch a glimpse of the queen and other royals, including William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and their two young children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Eugenie, 28, works at a contemporary art gallery. She wore a hot pink dress by Alexander McQueen (who also famously designed her own wedding dress) and a fascinator in the same color made by Philip Treacy.

The celebration will then continue with an afternoon reception hosted by the Queen in St George's Hall, followed by an evening party at the York family home, the Royal Lodge, in Windsor Great Park.

A wedding service booklet will be handed to the 850 guests gathered in St George's Chapel.
