Princess Eugenie and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank may have picked the same venue as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for their royal wedding, but it's going to be a very different occasion.

Surprisingly the Queen's granddaughter's special day will actually be BIGGER than her more-senior cousin , with a full weekend of fun for guests to look forward to.

Princes William and Harry, and their wives Kate and Meghan will be among those to attend the nuptials on October 12, and royal fans are already counting down until they get to see the Fab Four together again.

The men will have to wear morning suits, as stated on the invitation dress code, and there's also a strict fashion rule the duchesses will have to follow on the big day.

It's protocol for all women to wear hats to a royal wedding.

This rule applies to everyone, including the Queen and all the other women in the family.

Of course Princess Eugenie and her sister Beatrice have always followed the rule in the past, and turned heads with their unusual choice of hats for Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding back in 2011.

Kate and Meghan have shown off a selection of classic and fashionable hats since stepping into the royal spotlight.

According to the dress code, women should wear day dresses to the event - so we're sure to see some beautiful outfits.

Eugenie and Jack's two-day wedding will take place on October 12 and 13.

The formal service and a lunch time reception organised by the Queen will be held on the Friday, followed by an evening party.

The royal family will pay for the three parties out of their personal funds, however taxpayers will foot the bill for security, which is expected to exceed £2million ($2.6M USD).

This has been criticised by many who believe Eugenie, who is ninth in line to the throne and doesn't carry out any official duties, should have a lower-key - and cheaper - wedding.
