Why Was Demi Moore a Guest at Princess Eugenie's Royal Wedding?
Demi Moore apparently has friends in very high places — though maybe that's not really a surprise after all. The actor was spotted arriving at Windsor Castle on Friday with a handful of other unexpected celebrities, all attending Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank.
People reported that Moore has long been friends with Princess Eugenie's parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. Knowing that, it makes sense that Moore would attend her wedding. The outlet also reported that Moore has previously attended other functions hosted by the family, including a birthday party for Princess Beatrice, Eugenie's older sister.
Moore and Ferguson became friends when the latter developed an interest in Kabbalah, per Mirror UK. Although Ferguson and Prince Andrew ended their marriage in 1996, a decade after they tied the knot, the two have remained close. Mirror reported that Ferguson briefly tried to make a match between Moore and her ex-husband, though aside from some tabloid headlines, we're not sure if the attempt went anywhere.
Although Moore attracted a lot of attention for attending the wedding, she wasn't the only celebrity there. Entertainment Tonight reported that Ricky Martin, Liv Tyler, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and daughter Lila Grace Moss Hack, Ellie Goulding, James Blunt, Robbie Williams and Cara Delevingne were also in attendance, each of them dressed to the nines for this incredibly stylish wedding.
Members of the royal family were also in attendance, including Princess Eugenie's grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh. Her father, Prince Andrew, walked her down the aisle, and her cousins Prince William and Prince Harry attended the wedding with their wives, Catherine (née Middleton), Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan (née Markle), Duchess of Sussex, respectively. William and Kate's children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were among the page boys and bridesmaids at the wedding.
The royal family shared several photos from the day on Instagram, including romantic shots of Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank.
Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank exchanged vows at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same venue where Harry and Meghan married in May. According to People, Queen Elizabeth hosted a reception lunch at the castle after the ceremony and the newlyweds plan to have a festival-style celebration on Saturday, complete with food stalls and a fairground. Even without Moore and the other celebrity guests, this sounds like a wedding to remember.
