Update, 10/12/18: Despite earlier reports to the contrary, Prince Philip, Pippa Middleton, and the Duchess of Cambridge all attended Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank today.
But there were a bunch of notable absences at today's festivities, including George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, and other friends of the royals. Here's everyone we expected to see, who turned out to be no-shows:
George and Amal Clooney
Despite close ties to the groom (Brooksbank was a brand ambassador for Clooney's Casamigos tequila brand), George and Amal Clooney did not attend the second royal wedding of the year. They did, however, attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials in May.
David and Victoria Beckham
The Beckhams are close friends of the royal family and were guests at both Harry and Meghan's May wedding and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's in 2011. Still, they did not attend today's celebration.
Though photographed arriving at Heathrow yesterday, Chopra was not a guest at Eugenie and Brooksbank's nuptials today. Still, we'll never forget her jaw-dropping Vivienne Westwood look at Meghan and Harry's wedding.
Kloss is a close friend of Eugenie's sister, Princess Beatrice, but she did not attend today's wedding.
Another close friend of the royal family, Elton John did not attend today's ceremony because he's on tour, according to ITV.
Sheeran is a friend of Eugenie and Brooksbank's, but he also missed today's wedding due to touring.
Lady Kitty Spencer
The first cousin of Prince Harry and Prince William (Kitty is the daughter of Princess Diana's brother, Earl Spencer) stunned in Dolce & Gabbana at Harry and Meghan's wedding, but she did not attend Eugenie and Brooksbank's today.
Original Post, 8/19/18: Princess Eugenie's royal wedding to Jack Brooksbank is shaping up to be a star-studded occasion. Thanks to Brooksbank's role as the brand ambassador for George Clooney's tequila, and Eugenie's roster of famous friends, the guest list for 2018's second royal wedding is already iconic. But who might not make it to the event?
According to multiple reports, there are several members of the royal family who might miss Princess Eugenie's nuptials. Here's everything we know so far about those who might skip the festivities:
It's been long rumored that Prince Philip might not make it to his granddaughter's wedding. And the reason for his possible no-show? The Queen's husband apparently has a longstanding feud with Eugenie's mother, Sarah Ferguson. According to People, as Prince Philip "does what he wants," it's very possible that he won't attend Princess Eugenie's wedding on October 12.
It's unlikely that Kate Middleton's sister will make it to the wedding, purely because it's thought that the October 12 wedding is around the same time as the due date of her first baby. As Pippa will be about to give birth, or might have already had her baby, it seems unlikely that she'll put in an appearance at 2018's second royal wedding. She did, of course, make it to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May.
As her sister might be in labor, the Duchess of Cambridge could also be a no-show at Princess Eugenie's wedding. As Kate and Pippa are extremely close, it's rumored that the Duchess will be supporting her younger sister as she gives birth to her first baby. Closer magazine hints that Kate has had a difficult time choosing between the two events.
