The royal and Jack, who married two years ago, have remained firmly in the spotlight during the coronavirus pandemic, as they helped carry out Royal Family duties by supporting various charities and organisations. The couple also sparked wild excitement after confirming they are expecting their first child together, due in early 2021, and that they had moved into Frogmore Cottage, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s official UK residence. Their wedding was witnessed by millions of viewers who tuned in to watch the ceremony on ITV’s This Morning, with thousands more lining the streets to greet the happy couple.

Unfortunately, her sister Princess Beatrice was not afforded a similar luxury as she wed in secret earlier this year, in front of about 20 guests due to COVID-19.

But in the build-up to her big day, Eugenie – who had Beatrice as her Maid of Honour – left Jack speechless after she began discussing what fun would be in-store for guests at the wedding reception.

When asked by ITV presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford whether the entertainment for the main event would remain a secret, Eugenie stunned Jack by joking: “Well we were maybe going to sing. Weren’t we?”

Jack then wore a startled look on his face before Eugenie burst into laughter, before he added: “I actually thought you were serious then.

“I thought, ‘What are we going to sing?’ Honestly, I was terrified then.”

The joke came after Eugenie spoke warmly about Andrea Bocelli accepting an invite to not only attend the wedding, but perform during their service.

Andrea is friends with Eugenie’s mother Sarah Ferguson – affectionately known as Fergie – with the 62-year-old opera star saying they had been close “for many years now”.

As part of his appearance, Andrea passionately sang tear-jerking renditions of Ave Maria and Panis Angelicus, leaving audiences at home emotional.

Reflecting on the performance, Andrea said they “met a long time ago”, but was happy to sing at the wedding because of their friendship, but added: “I had a little bit of trouble with my voice.

“I was very tired. I tried to warm my voice, I did my best, but in any case I had some cough and phlegm. But, yes, I was nervous.”

Fergie, and Eugenie’s father Prince Andrew, both attended the Windsor wedding in 2018, with the likes of celebrities James Blunt, Naomi Campbell and Ellie Goulding also in attendance.

But Eugenie admitted to having nerves during the broadcast before her wedding, claiming: “It’s nerve-wracking and it’s a bit scary. It’s all the things that come with getting married but at the end of the day you get to marry the person you love.”

She added, with her eyes wide with excitement: “You’re going to be at the end of the aisle and I’m going to be running towards you.

“I told my dad, if he goes too fast, I said that’s it we’re not talking anymore. So I think he’s going to go really slowly – I hope.”

In Vogue, Eugenie also spoke about her wish to have a plastic-free wedding, similar to that of Harry and Meghan – who married in the same year.

The now-30-year-old said that she was “picking up the mantle of anti-plastics” and was doing so by working with Project Zero which has just partnered with Sky Ocean Rescue.

She concluded: “Together, they’re trying to end single-use plastic.

“My whole house is anti-plastic now. Jack and I want our wedding to be like that as well – we’ve got to look after this planet.”

The main issue surrounding plastics is that it emits methane, which contributes to the greenhouse effect.

In July of that year, Eugenie was made the Ambassador of Project Zero, which is bidding to restore the planet’s oceans and protect all of its inhabitants.
