Princess Eugenie has married her long-term partner Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

The ninth in line to the throne was watched by her grandmother, the Queen, and Prince Philip, along with other members of her family.

Among 850 guests were celebrities such as Cara Delevingne and Robbie Williams, while 1,200 people chosen by ballot followed proceedings from the grounds.

Guests held on to their hats in strong winds as the couple left by carriage.

“Both of them were a little nervous too, their hands shaking together before they took their vows,” he said.

“The biggest cheer of the day? For the Queen, bent a little with age, and the Duke of Edinburgh, ramrod straight despite his years.”

The service was also attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Mother of the bride Sarah, Duchess of York, in a vibrant green outfit, was seated in the row in front of her former father-in-law the Duke of Edinburgh.

However, the Duchess of Cornwall missed the service to attend engagements including a display of Highland dancing near the Royal Family’s home at Balmoral.

Princess Eugenie’s dress – with full-length train – was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, who founded British label Peter Pilotto.

It featured a neckline folding around the shoulders to a low back at the request of the bride, who wanted to show a scar from surgery to correct scoliosis when she was 12.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, acted as pageboy and bridesmaid.

Charlotte waved enthusiastically at the crowds as they approached the chapel.

Some of the youngsters were seen giggling and joking before walking down the aisle, appearing to imitate the royal trumpeters.

However, George held his hand over his ear as the musicians heralded Eugenie’s arrival.

Eugenie’s sister, Princess Beatrice, was maid of honour. Mr Brooksbank chose his brother, Thomas, as best man.

Numerous celebrities braved the weather, including singer Robbie Williams and his fellow X Factor judge Ayda Field, whose daughter Theodora, six, was a bridesmaid.

Singer Ellie Goulding, comedians Stephen Fry and Jack Whitehall and supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell were in the congregation. Cara Delevingne grabbed the attention of social media commentators with a dashing top hat and tails combination.

The couple travelled by carriage from St George’s Chapel into Windsor, before heading for an afternoon reception hosted by the Queen in St George’s Hall at the castle.

It was estimated about 3,000 people gathered to cheer Princess Eugenie and her new husband.

Rachel Price-Greenow, from Hereford, admitted she had a tear in her eye watching the couple go by.

“I got emotional!” she said. “I was quite teary. It’s just lovely. I love all the pomp and sense of occasion.”

Georgina Moroney, from Swindon, said: “I’m a royal geek. It’s just all part of our heritage. They’re fantastic – I love the romance of it all.

“She looked so radiant.”

Amy Gardner captured a photograph of the happy couple smiling and waving at the camera.

“She looked so beautiful – it was lovely,” she said. “It’s definitely worth the wait.”

Eugenie and drinks executive Mr Brooksbank, who met when skiing in Switzerland in 2010, married at the same venue where Prince Harry and Megham Markle tied the knot in May.

An evening party will take place at the York family home, the Royal Lodge, in Windsor Great Park.

The families paid for the private aspects of the wedding.

However, republican campaigners said taxpayers faced an estimated £2m security bill.

The campaign group Republic argued that as Princess Eugenie, the ninth in line to the throne, did not carry out public duties, the families should foot the bill.

Buckingham Palace said security was a matter for the police.
