Eugenie kept empty seat at royal wedding as no one can sit in front of Queen

Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank celebrated their third wedding anniversary yesterday, having married in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle's St George's Chapel in 2018.

However, looking at pictures of the day fans spotted something mysterious between the star-studded rows of guests, which included model and actress Cara Delevigne and singer Robbie Williams.

Despite over 850 people packing into the chapel for the wedding, one prime seat was left empty right in front Eugenie's grandmother the Queen.

Now, the mystery behind the odd seating arrangement has been revealed, reports the Mirror.

It turns out that it wasn't down to a no-show, but rather the Queen herself, who traditionally sits on the front row at such ceremonies.

Her Majesty is said to prefer to sit in the second row as, according to The Sun, she finds the front row uncomfortable.

And, with tradition dictating that no one is allowed to sit in front of the Queen and obstruct her view, the seat was left empty.

The same seat was also left empty months earlier when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married in the same chapel.

Yet this isn't to say there were no notable absences on Eugenie's big day, with the Duchess of Cornwall elsewhere.

Camilla instead attended a school harvest festival in Scotland, which she had agreed to make an appearance at before Eugenie's wedding date had been confirmed.

Following their marriage, Eugenie and Jack moved into Frogmore Cottage in Windsor and earlier this year welcomed their first child, a son called August Philip.

Recently, in a touching moment in the BBC documentary Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, which aired last month honouring Eugenie's late grandfather, she revealed young August got to meet his great-grandfather shortly before his death in April.

August was born on February 9 this year and, holding back the tears, Eugenie explained: "We named August, August Philip because grandpa has been such a huge, inspiring character in my life.

"I brought little August to come and meet him and told him that we had named him after him and it was such a lovely moment.

"We were very lucky to do that."

Last month, Eugenie also became an aunt for the first time after her sister Princess Beatrice gave birth to a daughter named Sienna Elizabeth.
