Princess Eugenie of York's royal wedding to Jack Brooksbank is only a couple of days away, and members of the British royal family-including Eugenie's grandmother, the Queen of England herself-are expected to attend. But now, it's been announced that Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall and wife of Prince Charles, won't be making it to the nuptials.

But! Before you get ahead of yourself and assume there's drama brewing in the family, royal commentator Victoria Arbiter cleared things up on Twitter. She tweeted, "I know it seems odd that Camilla's missing Eugenie's wedding but it doesn't indicate any malice or ill-feeling. Royals don't like to disappoint. Given she'd already committed to attending a school event it's duty first."

While the fambam is important, it seems like it's royal duties over everything. Arbiter further explained that pre-scheduled engagements often take priority over family functions, even over something as big as a royal wedding. "It's at a school and was scheduled long before. I expect she doesn't want to disappoint the children. She will have spoken to Eugenie about it."

Princess Eugenie is set to wed Jack Brooksbank this FridayOctober 12 in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. For every detail you could possibly want about who *is* going to the wedding, head over here:
