Princess Eugenie has arrived at Windsor Castle for her wedding to Jack Brooksbank, and she looks beautiful.

Eugenie wore a slightly off-the-shoulder gown with a subtle v-neck and similar design in the back designed by Peter Pilotto! Despite rumours suggesting that the Princess would wear a design by British-based designer Erdem, Eugenie surprised us all with her unusual choice.

The dress was a ball gown in design, made from satin material with a delicate floral print. Eugenie also stuck with royal tradition by picking a royal wedding dress with sleeves. The princess paired it with a diamond and emerald tiara and we every inch of the look was just breathtaking!

Before the wedding, Ladbrokes officially slashed the odds of Princess Eugenie choosing Erdem for her wedding dress designer, but it seems we were all wrong! The Princess did however stick with royal tradition by choosing London-based Peter Pilotto. It's important for British royals to support their heritage and therefore give home-grown designers a chance for the spotlight on a global stage. Kate Middleton did it when she married in Alexander McQueen, and even though Meghan Markle chose a French fashion house in Givenchy for her gown, the designer, Clare Waight Keller, was British.

While Eugenie stayed coy about who designed the gown in the lead-up to the wedding, she did confirm that she knew exactly what she wanted almost straight away. She said in an interview with Vogue: "I'm not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer. [The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I'd be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I've been pretty on top of it."

While the dress is definitely a showstopper, it's likely that it won't have cost as much as Kate Middleton's or Meghan Markle's. You see, in royal circles the line of succession is very important and as Prince Harry is after Prince William when it comes to the throne, Meghan's dress most likely cost less, too. It follows, then, that Princess Eugenie's won't match the £250,000 price tag of Kate's, either.
