This royal wedding has a registry! Eugenie’s guests invited to direct gifts to the Duke of York’s office – after Prince Harry and Meghan asked only for charity donations
- Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank reportedly registered for wedding gifts
- Guests are asked to send gifts to the Duke of York’s Buckingham Palace office
- Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked for charity donations to mark their big day
- Eugenie and Jack will marry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, tomorrow
Princess Eugenie and husband-to-be Jack Brooksbank have signed up for a wedding registry, it is reported.
The couple, who will tie the knot at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, tomorrow, are understood to have asked guests to send any gifts to the Duke of York’s office at Buckingham Palace.
It marks a departure from the approach taken by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who asked for charity donations in lieu of presents.

Details of Eugenie and Jack’s registry were included in an information packet sent out to guests ahead of the nuptials, according to Katie Nicholl at Vanity Fair.
It also provided clarification on where guests should meet ahead of the service and what time they should expect the arrival of the first members of the Royal Family.
The couple have faced some criticism over the plans for their big day, with thousands signing a petition calling for no public money to be spent as Princess Eugenie is a non-working royal.
Ahead of their wedding in May, Harry and Meghan ‘asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion considers making a donation to charity, rather than sending a wedding gift’.
The couple personally selected seven organisations wanted to support, reflecting their shared values, including Crisis, StreetGames and Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank also have close links with several charities and have invited representatives from some of them to join in the celebrations in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Teenage Cancer Trust, The Salvation Army and The UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women are among those that will be recognised.
More details of what to expect at the wedding have emerged this week as the day draws closer.
Yesterday, Eugenie and Jack released the names of the friends and family who will accompany them down the aisle at their wedding.
Eugenie’s second cousins Prince George and Princess Charlotte will reprise their positions as pageboy and bridesmaid for their second role in royal nuptials following Meghan and Harry’s wedding in May.

However, Eugenie has enlisted several other youngsters to act as her flowergirls including sisters Savannah, 7, and Isla Philips, 6, four-year-old Mia Tindall, Maud Windsor, 5, and most surprising six-year-old Theodora Williams, the daughter of Robbie Williams and Ayda Fields.
Louis de Givenchy, son of Frenchman Olivier de Givenchy, a senior banker at JP Morgan will join Prince George as one of two page boys.
The couple have asked the bride’s cousins and children of Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, 14 and her brother James Viscount Severn, 10, to act as Special Attendants.
Predictably, taking the role of Maid of Honour is the bride’s older sister Princess Beatrice whose role in the wedding has been speculated for several months.
The groom has followed suit asking his brother, Thomas Brooksbank, to be his Best Man and stand by his side while he says his I dos.
MailOnline has contacted the Duke of York’s office for comment.
