The second royal wedding of the year is fast approaching, and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are getting down to business with some preparations for their big day. The Mail Online spotted the beautiful couple leaving a Savile Row tailor on Monday night (Sept. 4), likely putting some final touches on Jack’s wedding day ensemble.
Steeped in British history, Savile Row is a street in Mayfair, central London, known for its traditional, one-of-a-kind tailoring for men. The couple were visiting one particular tailor, Huntsman, which has existed on the iconic London fashion street since 1919. The spot has had a hand in dressing everyone from English royalty (think: Prince Harry) to Hollywood royalty like Colin Firth. They were even granted a royal warrant – given to tradespeople to supply goods or services to a royal court – by Queen Victoria back in 1888. So, needless to say, it’s one of the shops on this street fit for a royal-to-be!
Eugenie’s 32-year-old fiancé promises to be quite the dapper groom when he meets his beautiful blushing bride at the St. George’s Chapel altar on Oct. 12. Clearly in the best hands for his tailoring needs, Huntsman has also been trusted with bespoke looks for the likes of Sir Winston Churchill , Prince Albert and even Brad Pitt , to name a few. The tailoring shop was most recently used as inspiration for the Kingsman films, and its website reads: “Huntsman served as the inspiration for Matthew Vaughn’s blockbuster movie Kingsman: The Secret Service. During an appointment with his cutter, Vaughn, taken by the history on display at 11 Savile Row, imagined moving beyond the walls of the fitting room, with the legendary premises acting as a smokescreen for his team of spies, the Kingsmen.”
While royal watchers can quite easily hazard a guess of what Jack’s wedding day outfit will look like, fans of the Royal Family are chomping at the bit to find out any small detail around the princess’s look. “I’m not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer. [The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about,” she told British Vogue. “As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it.” She may also choose to follow in her mom, the Duchess of York’s footsteps and wear the York Diamond tiara on her big day. From the baubles to the gown to the accessories, Eugenie is bound to be the picture of perfection for the day she says “I do” to the love of her life – and it seems he won’t be too shabby himself!
