But rest assured there is still excitement to be had with a second royal wedding this year, when Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tie the knot at Windsor Castle today.
What will Princess Eugenie's title be when she marries Jack Brooksbank?
The couple are tying the knot in St George’s Chapel, the same venue as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
As a princess from birth, the eldest daughter of the Queen’s son Prince Andrew, her title is Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York.
While Meghan and Kate got royal titles after marrying Princes William and Harry, it may not be the case for wine merchant Jack.
The precedent was set when Princess Alexandra married Angus Oglivy in 1963, turning down an earldom, and that was continued when Princess Anne married Captain Mark Phillips in 1973, they too rejecting an earldom.
As Jack is not a member of a royal family, Princess Eugenie will not take on her new husband’s titles as he has none.
But technically speaking, she will go from HRH Princess Eugenie to HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank.
Moreover, as she is not a senior royal, she doesn’t need permission from the Queen to marry, as Princes William and Harry did.
Both the bride-to-be and her sister, Princess Beatrice, do not work on behalf of the Queen carrying out royal duties.
They are some of the only royals not listed on the official website for the family.
And as such, their charity and patronage work is not included in the royal circular or the royal’s charity database.
Will she still be HRH or could she be a Mrs?
The 28-year-old will have the option of keeping her royal title or getting rid of it altogether.
Or she could use both, and be styled HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs Brooksbank, or she could also choose to take her husband’s surname officially.
Royal historian Marlene Eilers Koenig told Hello!: "She will be styled either as HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs. Brooksbank or she could choose not to use her husband's surname.
“Prince Andrew has been vocal about his daughters having a royal life, and personally, we need younger blood royal princesses.
“There are only two working blood princesses – Anne, 67, and Alexandra, 81."
Among the many options available, it is thought she may drop the ‘York’ part from her title.
