PRINCESS Eugenie is trying to outshine Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day with an even “bigger” royal wedding, according to reports.
The royal has reportedly invited more guests than St George’s Chapel will hold.
She and fiancee Jack Brooksbank are due to tie the knot in the same Windsor chapel as Harry and Meghan.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex invited just 600 guests to their wedding in May – but Princess Eugenie is set to out-do them with a massive 850 invites.
The chapel only holds 800 people, so staff will need to rearrange the seating to accommodate all the Princess’ friends and family, according to the Mirror.
One source said: “The wedding itself is going to be huge and they are hoping quite a few of the people they’ve invited won’t be able to come because of the capacity issue.”
The Princess, who carries out no royal duties, has been slammed for the wedding’s size and huge cost to the taxpayer because of additional security measures in Windsor.
Chris Williamson, the Labour MP for Derby North said: “Who’s heard of Princess Eugenie anyway?
“She carries out no royal functions, no useful purpose to the public sphere and yet we’re having to spend this kind of money.”
The royal’s lavish nuptials are said to rival Meghan’s with even more A-list celebrity guests.
It was revealed Eugenie, who is ninth in line to the thrown, has brought in the expensive party planner David Beckham uses to organise the event.
The wedding, which will span a whole weekend, will see George and Amal Clooney, the Beckhams, Robbie and Ayda Williams and artist Tracey Emin among the invitees.
Eugenie’s celebrity party planner Peregrine Armstrong-Jones organised Posh and Becks’ wedding at Luttrellstown Castle, near Dublin, in 1999.
“Who’s heard of Princess Eugenie anyway?”
As well as a star-studded guest list the Princess, 28, will also beat the royal favourites’ in extending her nuptials to spread over two days.
The ceremony will take place on live TV, before the married couple go all-out with an open-top carriage procession through Windsor.
A post-wedding lunch hosted by the Queen on October 12 will be followed by a black-tie evening reception at Royal Lodge, Windsor.
Guests will then be invited back to Royal Lodge the following afternoon for a “festival and funfair” themed party.
The huge cost of the security at the wedding will blow the initial budget of £750,000, it is reported.
A £1.25million increase in expenses are said to be due to officers’ overtime, cancellation of holidays and the need for extra patrols.
