Princess Eugenie weds Jack Brooksbank and makes an important statement with her wedding dress

Princess Eugenie stuns in an all-star wedding celebration

Princess Eugenie and her longtime beau Jack Brooksbank tied the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

The bride was a thing of beauty in her ivory dress designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.  While still modest from standards of the general public, she showed off a lot of back, which is quite racy for royal standards, but Princess Eugenie was making an important statement, and that statement was not, look at me I'm rebelling against the Queen.

When she was 12-years old, Princess Eugenie has back surgery to help her with a curvature of the spine called scoliosis.  She wanted her dress to show the scar so people would know that they are not alone.  So, she opted out of a veil and had her hair up, while sporting an amazing diamond and emerald tiara, so the scar was easily visible to the public.

As reported by CBS News, Princess Eugenie had mentioned that her scar would be visible on her wedding day.

"I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you'll see on Friday," Princess Eugenie said, hinting that the scar would be visible on her wedding day. "But it's a lovely way to honor the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this," she told ITV.

She wanted to be part of the solution in changing the landscape of beauty.

"I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it's really special to stand up for that," said Princess Eugenie.

In addition to most of the royal family, the only noticeable absence was Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who had another engagement that predated the announcement of the wedding.  It was reported that she made her apologies to the bride months earlier.

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was in attendance, even though there had been some speculation if his health or his alleged negative feelings towards the bride's mother would keep him at bay, but he was every inch the proud grandpa.

Her sister, Princess Beatrice was the maid of honor, her royal blue dress seemed a bit too simple for this occasion, but with all the wind, it was probably a good idea that she didn't have to hold down her skirt.  The wind wreaked havoc on many hats, hemlines and fascinators.

Of course, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, along with the other children oozed cuteness during the entire event.

In total, there were 850 guests and 1,200 well-wishers who were chosen by a lottery were able to follow the wedding on the premises.

Some of the celebrities who joined included Singer Ellie Goulding, comedians Stephen Fry and Jack Whitehall, as well as supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and model and actor Cara Delevingne stood out wearing a fitted tuxedo and a top hat to the nuptials.

Singer Robbie Williams was also in the congregation as was his fellow X Factor judge Ayda Field.  Field's little girl, Theodora served as one of the adorable bridesmaids.

The festivities included a lunchtime reception to be followed with a private party hosted by the bride's parents Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

May Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have a long and happy marriage.
