Key Differences Between Eugenie and Harry’s Weddings Explained By the Body Language Expert
Today we take a look at the differences between Princess Eugenie and Prince Harry’s wedding photos revealed by a body language expert. Princess Eugenie's official wedding photo seems to highlight a vast difference between her immediate family and that of Prince Harry. A body language expert has noted one fundamental difference between Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's official portraits and those of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and it paints a rather sad picture. After all, it would be challenging to stop yourself from drawing similarities between the two weddings, which took place just five months apart in the same chapel in Windsor Castle.
SOME INTRIGUING ROYAL FAMILY WEDDING RULES
Some people believe that as a royal, you live a life free of trouble, worry, and problems, but while this may be true to an extent, Royal’s life is not exactly rosy, as they do not get to do as they please all the time. There are specific rules that a royal has to abide by, especially when they are married. Some people may not know this, but royals go through strict regulations every day of their lives. If you do not know about the rules that royals have to abide by, then today is your lucky day.
BLESSINGS FROM THE QUEEN
Queen Elizabeth II is seen as one of the highest authorities in the United Kingdom, so it is only fair that she blesses you before you go about your daily activities. Sorry, that is not the blessing we are talking about, but one that involves marriage. The Queen has to give her consent and blessing to any royal before they can propose to the person they were to marry. This law is boldly stated in The Royal Marriages Act of 1772. If the Queen did not give her consent, then there is no marriage happening. Now, that’s a type of power that’s hard to come by, but the Queen has it.
BRIDES MUST BE ANGELS
Not literally, but on the wedding day, a bride must wear a white dress and nothing else. This is similar to the idea that people have about Angels because they are only seen in white in movies. This tradition of royal brides wearing white dresses only was enacted by Queen Victoria in 1840, and it has been put down as a law to date.
This is one of many rules that no royal is allowed to go against, and there may be consequences for whoever goes against this law. There you have it guys, if you’re thinking of becoming part of the royal family, don’t think about having a wedding dress that isn’t white.
INVITES FROM THE QUEEN
If you are not on good terms with the Queen, be sure that you won’t be attending any royal function because all invites go through the Queen first, before anyone. Almost every year, we have royals getting married, dedicating their children, or renewing their vows, so it is always a party time with the royals.
You can have people in mind that you hope to see at your function, but if the Queen does not approve them, then there is no way they will be in attendance. This is one rule that has been in existence for years now, and no one seems to have dared to break it.
THE KIDS IN THE PHOTO
The royal photographer took this photo of the Jack and Eugenie with the bridesmaids and page boys in The Green Drawing Room of Windsor Castle. Don't they look absolutely beautiful? This would be a dream wedding for most of us. Look at all those adorable kids! They certainly make a beautiful family portrait, and the fans are in awe at this stunning picture. We hope these kids are as angelic as they look behind closed doors with their parents.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank released this official photograph from their Wedding Day. Prince George and Princess Charlotte were Page Boy and Bridesmaid respectively for the ceremony at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. Even though it's not much of a difference, there are fewer kids in this photograph if compared to that of Harry and Meghan, but it's equally beautiful! Everyone congratulated the newly married Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. Prince George and Princess Charlotte were a truly stunning addition to this photograph. Don't you think the page boy and bridesmaid looked absolutely dreamy?
They had a beautiful ceremony. The Queen usually takes center stage in these official photos - but she and her husband, Prince Philip, are in the same position in Harry's wedding portrait.
SITTING ARRANGEMENT AND SPACES
In Harry and Meghan's picture with their families, everyone is tightly packed together and Meghan's mom, Doria, stands close by her side. She's so close that Meghan is even touching her. On the other side, Harry's father, Prince Charles, stands close to his son next to his wife, Camilla.
The queen and Prince Philip are sitting on chairs in front of them. Alex Bramall, Eugenie's photographer, would have set up the shot how he wanted it to look, so we can't read into the emotions too much. No matter what people say, this is a beautiful photograph and one to be treasured by the happy couple. The matching background compliments the clothing for that special occasion and gives it that much more significant volume. These photographers have really gone out of their way to get the perfect picture for the entire royal family.
In this second photograph released by Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are pictured with other members of the royal family, including the queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. However, in Eugenie's snap, there is a considerable gap between the bride and her parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew.
There is a lot of space in the photo on Eugenie's side, with a gap between her and her sister, Princess Beatrice. Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's picture was a wider shot and had much more space. On Jack's half of the image, his mother, father, and brother stand close by his side. Do you spot the difference? At least they're all smiling!
There was, however, one big difference between the photos, and it has to do with the spacing between the couples and their relatives. It could be that Sarah Ferguson has been moved to the right of the photo thanks to her rocky history with the royal family. It's relatively normal to have equal spacing between family members in a picture, but these photographers know what they're doing.
She famously caused one of the family's biggest scandals in 1992 when photographs of her "financial advisor" sucking her toe were published in the media just months after her split from Prince Andrew. It has been reported that Prince Philip has had a rocky relationship with the Duchess of York ever since.
Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, share a kiss in the carriage. Judi James, a body language expert who frequently writes for Mirror Online, and has made numerous TV appearances, told OK about the similarities in the images. She noted that both couples stood in the center of their family units looking "radiant and happy."
Judi told OK: "Sadly Eugenie's mother Sarah was put at the outer edge of the line-up, with Beatrice filling the huge gap between mother, father, and daughter." The distance between Eugenie and her parents means her father is at the very far end of the line-up, which makes Eugenie's dearest family members look somewhat scattered.
"It's Jack's parents that supply the support here, standing alongside their son and holding one another's hands to show unity, especially with their other son beside Jack's mother ...
... Jack and I would like to thank everyone who was involved in making our day so special and for all the wonderful wishes as we start married life laughing together".
These images were also taken by different photographers who likely have various styles.
