If successful, they will be able to watch the arrival of the congregation, including members of the Royal Family, and have a prime position as the bride and groom leave St George’s Chapel after the ceremony.

Eugenie and Jack will also have a short carriage procession, travelling through the grounds of Windsor Castle and along part of the High Street, before returning to the castle via Cambridge Gate.

Representatives from some of the charities that the couple support will also be outside the church, along with local school children, residents of Windsor, and staff from the royal household.
