Everyone knows that royal weddings are the best places for some serious star sightings. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding guest list was filled with A-listers including George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, Victoria and David Beckham, and Oprah, so everyone was expecting Princess Eugenie’s royal nuptials to be equally as star-studded.

Fans watched eagerly to see if the Clooneys would attend Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding, which took place on Friday, Oct. 12, but were disappointed to learn that they were unable to make it. What happened? Here’s everything we know so far:


News outlets predicted that George and Amal Clooney would attend Princess Eugenie’s wedding after attending Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding this past May. The couple currently lives in England with their 1-year-old twins, so it seemed like a no-brainer that they would be in attendance. It turns out the couple had plans that they couldn’t reschedule.


E! News reports that Amal had a speaking engagement at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Friday.  

We thought George would be there since the groom is a U.K. Brand Ambassador for his Casamigos Tequila brand, which he co-founded with Rand Gerber. Clooney revealed that drinks made with the brand’s tequila will be served at the wedding reception. “I'm in charge of drinks and we'll be serving Casamigos," he told the Daily Mail earlier this month.



So, who did attend the Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding? Big stars including Demi Moore, Naomi Campbell, and Ellie Goulding were spotted entering the iconic Windsor Castle, which is also where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot.


Other big names like Robbie Williams, Cara Delevingne, and Liv Taylor were also there.

And the royal family was there, of course! Prince William and Kate Middleton were one of the firsts to arrive, along with their children Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3. Newlyweds Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were also in attendance, as well as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip.
