'We learnt something yesterday that neither of us had heard before that Catherine and Meghan will wear something they've worn before so as not to upstage the bride?' He said.

Princess Eugenie is set to tie the knot with her long-term partner Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel this Friday, October 12 - the same venue Harry and Meghan's used.

A source said: "When this date was proposed, she said that regrettably she couldn't come". Princess Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank met at the Swiss resort of Verbier where Eugenie was on a family vacation celebrating her father's 50th birthday.

New reports say that even though the entire royal family will be there - including Eugenie's parents Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson - Camilla is being forced to skip the ceremony and reception. "Camilla didn't want to let anyone down". "Given she'd already committed to attending a school event it's duty first", Victoria, whose father previously worked as The Queen's press secretary, explained.

Joining Princess Charlotte as bridesmaid will be popstar Robbie Williams' six-year-old daughter, Theodora Williams.
