‘I’m so excited I’ll run down the aisle’: Eugenie reveals it was ‘love at first sight’

Princess Eugenie has revealed she is so excited to be marrying the love of her life today that she will be 'running down the aisle'.

In an interview on the eve of the royal wedding, the Queen's granddaughter said she was nervous but couldn't wait to exchange vows with drinks industry executive Jack Brooksbank, 32, because 'it was love at first sight'. 

Her grandfather, Prince Philip, is coming out of his retirement from public life for the event, despite having an enduringly frosty relationship with his former daughter-in-law, the duchess.

The princess will arrive with her father in the same Rolls Royce 1950 Phantom IV that was lent to the now-Duchess of Sussex on her wedding day by the Queen.

It was made for the monarch when she was still a princess and the first Rolls Royce that she and Prince Philip had, a sign of how special the vehicle is.

In an interview with presenters Eamon Holmes and Ruth Langsford, who will be anchoring live coverage of the wedding on ITV's This Morning from 9.25am today, Eugenie and her fiancé described the moment they first saw each other on ski holiday in Verbier, Switzerland.

Mr Brooksbank said: 'We were skiing in a friend's place out in Switzerland, and [looking at Eugenie] I saw you first, didn't I? And we just stared at each other.'

Eugenie continued: 'Yes, and I thought, 'what a silly hat!'... and I thought, 'who's that?' and then you came over and shook my hand and I was all butterflies and nervous.

'I think I rang my mum that night and said, 'I've met this guy Jack'... and that was it I think about how it started.

'I remember being like, 'I really, really like this guy, I really want him to like me too,' and then you gave me this huge windscreen wiper wave and that was it, right, he likes me.'

Jack described his bride-to-be as a 'bright shining light ',while Eugenie said: 'Jack's the kind of guy, you know when you're lost at a party and you can't find anyone to talk to, and you start panicking and you need help?

'He'll walk in and make everyone feel so special. He'll scoop you up and talk to you and make you feel a million dollars and that's you, and you're so humble and generous.'

The couple both said they immediately knew they wanted their siblings to be best man and maid of honour - Jack's brother, Tom, for him and Princess Beatrice for her.

Eugenie said: 'She's my big sissy - I've looked up to her my whole life. I've wanted to be her at times, we've fought over Converse trainers and who gets what... and you know, we're best friends and I can't think of anyone I'd want by my side more than her.

'She's the biggest supporter of 'Team Eug and Jack' and so it's a great honour for me that she said 'yes' and she's doing that duty.'

Eugenie said the whole experience of such a big wedding - they will have 800 guests and the event will be televised - was 'nerve-wracking and a bit scary'.

But she added: 'But at the end of the day you get to marry the person you love.... and you're going to be at the end of the aisle, and I'm going to be running towards you!'

Jack said Eugenie, who works for a leading London art gallery, was far from a 'bridezilla', despite the lavish nature of the occasion.

'Eugenie has been amazing. She's been incredible, she has the ability to do a million things at once in her brain, including working as well as organising everything to do with the wedding,' he said.

The couple were at Windsor yesterday, along with the whole bridal party, including George and Charlotte, for a wedding rehearsal in the chapel, which has been decorated with flowers, including the white rose of Yorkshire, appropriately for the Yorks.

In an interview with presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford (left), who will be anchoring live coverage of the wedding on ITV's This Morning from 9.25am today, Eugenie and her fiancé described the moment they first saw each other 

It is the first time in living memory two royal weddings have been staged in the same year at Windsor Castle's St George's Chapel, so the choristers will be part of an historic double.

Alexios Sheppard, 11, said: 'It's one of the best experiences we're ever going to have - it's just amazing. They call it a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but not for us.'

David Conner, the Dean of Windsor, will officiate and has also been giving the pair the traditional pre-marital guidance counselling.

He said: 'They just come across as just the perfect couple. They are very natural with each other, they obviously love one another but they also have a lot of fun together and it's been a real pleasure to work with them.

'You just have to remember it's their day and really do your very best to focus on them and not on the hundreds of famous and semi-famous people who will be around.'

He said the princess regarded St George's Chapel as her 'parish church' even though it was a 'bit grand'.

Buckingham Palace has said it will not announce the designer of Eugenie's dress until she arrives.

But in a previous interview the princess said: '(The dress) is the one thing that I was really decisive about. 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.' 

Eugenie, pictured with her fiancé and ITV's Eamon Holmes and Ruth Langsford, said the whole experience of such a big wedding - they will have 800 guests and the event will be televised - was 'nerve-wracking and a bit scary'

1200 - Service ends and the couple, the bridal party and the couple's parents process to the West Door.

The bride and groom depart from the West Steps by carriage.

1215 approx - Eugenie and Jack arrive at Windsor Castle for their afternoon reception.

Erdem is often Eugenie's go-to choice but Stella McCartney has also been hotly tipped.

Royal fans will be hoping for some fun-filled antics from the young helpers in the bridal party, who include George and Charlotte, Zara and Mike Tindall's spirited four-year-old Mia, and Peter and Autumn Phillips' mischievous daughters Savannah and Isla. 

But royal watchers will also be looking closely at Duke of Edinburgh, who hasn't acknowledged Eugenie's mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, for several decades.

Philip hasn't been able to forgive her for being photographed having her feet kissed by financial adviser John Bryan in 1992, which ultimately led to her divorce from his son.

But as the mother of the bride, Sarah has taken a major role in organising the wedding and will be centre stage, with the rest of the Royal Family, on the day.

Stars predicted to attend the second royal wedding of the year include singer Ellie Goulding, supermodel Cindy Crawford, Prince Harry's ex, actress Cressida Bonas, who is one of Eugenie's best friends, model Cara Delevingne, singer James Blunt and George and Amal Clooney, who also attended May's royal wedding.

The Queen is hosting an afternoon reception afterwards in the castle's St George's Hall, but the festivities will continue into the early hours with an evening party at the York family home.

The Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park has had a fairground set up in the garden, complete with dodgems and a coconut shy.

Members of the public will have the chance to see the newlyweds in a carriage procession through Windsor town centre.

About 1,200 members of the public have also been given balloted invites to the castle's Lower Ward, as have charity representatives, children from Eugenie's old schools, and royal household staff.

Broadcast footage will be live streamed on The Royal Channel and the Duke of York's YouTube channels, and the royal family and Andrew's Facebook pages.

Republic, a campaigning group working for an elected head of state, has criticised the security cost to the taxpayer, saying estimates have put the bill at £2million. 

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have carried out their final rehearsals at St George's Chapel ahead of tomorrow's lavish royal wedding.

The Queen's granddaughter and her fiancé drove to the chapel in Windsor Castle this afternoon, less than 24 hours before they exchange their vows at the same venue where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex married in May.

They were followed by Eugenie's immediate family - her mother Sarah Ferguson, her father Prince Andrew and her sister and maid of honour, Princess Beatrice. 

The rehearsal for the wedding took place at 12pm today, MailOnline has learned, with royal guests in attendance including Prince George and Princess Charlotte who will be among the page boys and bridesmaids tomorrow.

Princess Eugenie was followed by her parents Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York who, despite divorcing in 1996, remain on good terms. The couple still live together in Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, just three and a half miles from the castle. 

Jack and Eugenie will say their vows tomorrow before some 850 guests and members of the royal family including Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen.

Footage of the ceremony will be live streamed on The Royal Channel and The Duke of York's YouTube channels, as well as the royal family and Andrew's Facebook pages.

The wedding is also being screened in full on ITV as part of a special three-hour This Morning show live from Windsor, hosted by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.  

Eugenie and Jack's carriage journey will be a shorter affair than Harry and Meghan's, which followed a two-mile route and took around 25 minutes.

They will leave from the Royal Mews out of Windsor Castle and travel on to part of the High Street, before returning via Cambridge Gate, but they will not travel down the Long Walk like Eugenie's cousin and his bride.

It will follow the same route as the procession of Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, who also married at St George's Chapel.

The couple may well decide to travel in the Ascot Landau, a smaller and lighter carriage than the State Landau with basket-work sides, which was the choice of Peter Phillips and Prince Edward and their brides for their St George's Chapel weddings.

The final page of the wedding service booklet, which will be handed to the 850 guests gathered in St George's Chapel, features an image of Here

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have added an unusual addition to their traditional Order of Service - a piece of modern art.

The final page of the wedding service booklet, which will be handed to the 850 guests gathered in St George's Chapel, features an image of Here, a mixed media on canvas from 2018 by American abstract artist Mark Bradford.

Another work by Bradford, Helter Skelter I, which used to belong to tennis star John McEnroe, sold for £8.7 million in March, the highest auction price achieved by a living African American artist.

Art-loving Eugenie is a director at the contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth in London.

Other personal touches by the couple include a reading from F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby, emblematic of the Jazz Age of the 1920s.

Princess Beatrice, Eugenie's older sister and maid of honour, will deliver the passage, which is a description of enigmatic Jay Gatsby's smile and said to capture both the theatrical quality of his character and his charisma.

The Order of Service also reveals that Jack will not be wearing a ring - unlike the Duke of Sussex - and Eugenie, like the Duchess of Sussex, will not promise to obey her husband.

Buckingham Palace said: 'Princess Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank have taken great care and interest in bringing together the content of their service, working closely with the Dean of Windsor and all others involved.

'The couple are looking forward to sharing their marriage ceremony with their family, friends and all those who have come to celebrate with them.'

A Gaelic Blessing will be sung by the choir, and Italian singer-songwriter Andrea Bocelli will perform Bach's Ave Maria.

The Order of Service also revealed Jack's unusual middle name, Stamp.

He will say: 'I Jack Christopher Stamp take thee Eugenie Victoria Helena to my wedded wife.'

Eugenie and Jack have, unlike Harry and Meghan, chosen a traditional, rather than a contemporary marriage service.

The 1928 Prayer Book Service features language such as 'thou' and 'thee' instead of 'you'.

It also refers to the bride and groom as 'Man' and 'Woman'.

The service reads: 'Eugenie wilt thou have this Man to thy wedded husband, to live together according to God's law in the holy estate of Matrimony? Wilt thou love him, comfort him, honour and keep him, in sickness and in health? and, forsaking all other, keep thee only unto him, so long as ye both shall live?

The choice of a traditional service was a personal preference for the couple.

Bocelli will also sing the tenor piece Panis Angelicus.

The bride will enter to the rousing organ recital of Bach's Piece d'Orgue.

The other reading is from the bible and will be read by Jack's paternal cousin Charles Brooksbank.

It is taken from St Paul's Letter to the Colossians Chapter 3.

Hymns include Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken, and Lord Divine All Loves Excelling.

The service will end with the National Anthem as is the tradition for royal weddings. 

A small but very dedicated crowd of royal wedding enthusiasts have descended on a rainy Windsor hours before Princess Eugenie exchanges vows with Jack Brooksbank.

The royal superfans are preparing to sleep rough outside Windsor Castle tonight to bag the best patch of pavement from which to catch a glimpse of the Queen's granddaughter at her lavish wedding tomorrow. 

Carrying sleeping bags and decorating the streets of Windsor with flags and balloons today, some of the well-wishers had travelled hundreds of miles to witness the wedding.

Undeterred by stringent security, the fans have been hanging bunting from shops and setting their banners up in anticipation of the couple's carriage procession.

Eugenie will marry tequila brand ambassador Jack Brooksbank in the Gothic surroundings of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in May.

Some 850 guests will gather in the historic venue while 1,200 members of the public have been given balloted invites to the castle's Lower Ward, as have charity representatives, children from Eugenie's old schools, and royal household staff.

Police have stepped up security measures around the town and were seen today checking drains and patrolling with sniffer dogs.

Bartley Graham, 30, a former civil servant, and his sister Sandra, 21, a factory worker, travelled all the way from County Durham for the big day.

They arrived last night and slept on the pavement in sleeping bags.

'People call us the crazy corner. They call us all sorts of things,' he said.

'We have been compared to the migrant camps in Calais. It gets a bit annoying after a while. But we just love the royals and are proud to be British.'

His sister, Sandra, added: 'We wouldn't be British if we didn't have the royals. It's enjoyable. We're not going to see many more of these events.'

Writer and career Kerry Evans, 54, travelled from Hull for the big day.

'It wasn't too cold overnight,' she said. 'We'd have liked to pitch a tent but we're not allowed, so we just had to sleep rough.

'We're not too tired, not with the adrenaline. We expected a big queue and are quite surprised that there's nobody else here.' 

Her friend, teacher Catherine Rohan, 61, added: 'We love all the royals. It doesn't matter whether they are A list or Z list.'

Windsor remained quiet overall today, with just two barriers around press areas as evidence of the festivities tomorrow.

Joseph Afrane, 55, from Battersea, was wearing a Union Jack suit, glasses and hat.

'Nobody is as committed to the cause as me,' he said. 'I don't care if the crowds aren't here yet. I am here and my friends are here. We have our flags and that is what matters.'

Let's get cracking! Baker Sophie Cabot, who's been commissioned to create Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding cake has released photos of herself creating the celebratory creation, which everyone from celebrities to A-listers will feast on

London-based cake designer Sophie Cabot has spent months conceiving the red velvet and chocolate cake, which is set to be the centrepiece of Princess Eugenie's wedding feast and inspired by their Kensington Palace cottage. 

New photos released two days before the couple marry at St George's Chapel in Windsor - in front of royals, the rich and the famous - show Cabot's masterpiece will reflect the changing seasons.

Cabot describes her culinary creation as 'special and unique', and promises it will feature rich, autumnal colours and detailed sugar work.

It's thought to have been inspired by the foliage surrounding Ivy Cottage, in the grounds of Kensington Palace, where the couple live together - a stone's throw from this year's other royal newlyweds, Meghan and Harry.  

The photos show Cabot knee-deep in industrial quantities of eggs, flour and caster sugar, with silk leaves in autumnal colours, berries and sugar-craft snowdrops carefully placed in boxes before adorning the cake.

The London-based star baker launched her business in 2014 and came to the attention of the couple after supplying specially-decorated biscuits to an event for the Duke of York's Pitch@Palace programme for entrepreneurs.

They range from the cheekiest of little bridesmaids to a daughter of pop royalty.

The full bridal party for tomorrow's wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank was revealed by Buckingham Palace yesterday.

As well as adorable Mia Tindall, the bridesmaids at Windsor Castle will include singer Robbie Williams' daughter Teddy.

Savannah Philips, Mia Tindall and Isla Philips, will be among the bridesmaids. Savannah and Isla are daughters of Peter Philips and his Canadian wife Autumn, while Mia is the daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall

Princess Charlotte, three, will be making her fourth appearance as a bridesmaid, having already made star turns at the weddings of her uncle, Prince Harry, auntie Pippa Middleton, and godmother, Sophie Carter. She is said to rule the roost back at the Cambridge family home. Her brother Prince George, five, is more wary of the cameras than his sister, but is also an old hand at weddings

Prince George, a wedding veteran at the age of only five, will be one of the page boys while little sister Princess Charlotte, three, will be a bridesmaid.

Their antics will be sure to pile the pressure on Princess Beatrice as she follows in the footsteps of the most famous royal wedding maid of honour – Pippa Middleton.

But royal insiders say that thanks to her 'fantastic' way with children, Beatrice, 30, will be able to keep the eight bridesmaids and pageboys in check.

As well as Mia, four, Teddy, six, and Charlotte, the bridesmaids are Savannah Phillips, seven, her sister Isla, six, and Maud Windsor, five.

Maud, pictured, is the daughter of Lord Freddie Windsor, son of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent 

Mia, daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall, is well known for her high-spirited antics. Her cousin, Savannah, is equally mischievous, and was spotted putting her mouth over Prince George's mouth on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during June's Trooping the Colour.

As the only non-royal, Teddy – short for Theodora – is an intriguing choice.

Her father and his actress partner Ayda Field, both judges on The X Factor, are good friends of Eugenie and her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York. Former Take That star Williams credits Teddy with helping prevent his life from spiralling into drug addiction.

Alongside George as page boy will be Louis de Givenchy, six, son of Olivier de Givenchy, managing director at JPMorgan Private Bank.

Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, 14, left, is the daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex and attends St George's School, Ascot. She was a bridesmaid for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Gracious and well-mannered, she is a firm favourite of the Queen. Her brother James, Viscount Severn (right), ten, is considered shy but is said to be a 'delightful' boy in private. They are both the stewards 

And, in a charming touch, Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank have involved her uncle Prince Edward's children Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn.

At 14 and ten, they are slightly too old to be a bridesmaid or page boy. But their role as 'special attendants' is a thoughtful way to involve them.

'It was a really sweet thing to do and I know the children and their parents are very touched,' a source said.

Mr Brooksbank, 32, has asked his younger brother Tom, 30, to be his best man. The ceremony will take place at 11am at St George's Chapel in front of up to 800 guests.

Most members of the Royal Family will be present, except the Duchess of Cornwall, who has declined citing a prior engagement in Scotland.

There have been suggestions that Prince Philip, 97, who has a notoriously fractious relationship with the Duchess of York, will 'see how he feels on the day'. But royal sources insisted last night that he will be there for his granddaughter's big day.

Young choristers who will sing at the royal wedding have described their excitement ahead of the big day.

Alexios Sheppard, 11, and Leo Mills, 12, both performed at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding and now will be centre stage for the nuptials of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

It is the first time in living memory two royal weddings have been staged in the same year at Windsor Castle's St George's Chapel, so the two choristers will be part of an historic double.

The boys could not hide their joy, with Alexios saying: 'It's one of the best experiences we're ever going to have - it's just amazing.'

Leo added: 'I think it's really cool we get to sing at two royal weddings in one year. No one ever really gets to do that much - it's a very rare occasion so we're very lucky.'

Alexios joked: 'They call it a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but not for us.'

The pair, who attend St George's School at Windsor Castle, said they both enjoyed the experience of singing in St George's Chapel when Harry and Meghan married in May.

Alexios said about the earlier wedding: 'There was just this warm buzz going around the chapel - it just felt amazing and I feel this one is going to be as good as well.'

Leo added: 'It was a bit nerve-racking at the start but then when we got in I felt fine, it felt like a normal service, with added bits.' 

The Duchess of Cornwall will host a shooting party for her friends in Scotland and will not attend Princess Eugenie's wedding tomorrow. 

Camilla today joined in a cookery class at a school in Scotland, helping youngsters at Alford Community Campus in Aberdeenshire mark their Harvest Festival.

Camilla, who is also the Duchess of Rothesay, got stuck in as youngsters at Alford Community Campus in Aberdeenshire took part in a cookery class and school performance to mark Harvest Festival.

Tomorrow she will visit Crathie primary school near Balmoral before hosting friends for a party at her Scottish home, which means she will be unable to attend Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank.

All smiles: The Duchess of Cornwall is pictured with staff at Alford Community Campus in Aberdeenshire on Thursday 

Her husband Prince Charles will witness the couple getting married and join her in Scotland after the festivities.  

But her friends were reportedly puzzled why she had chosen this weekend to plan the party when the date of the wedding has been known for eight months.

A source close to Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank denied there was a rift, saying there was 'no issue' and that the couple had 'known about the diary clash for some time'. 

There have been rumours of a rift between the branches of the royal family dating back to the Duchess of York's friendship with Princess Diana.  

Today Camilla was pictured beaming with students at Alford Community Campus, which was officially opened in November 2015 and caters for pupils in early years, primary and secondary education.

The campus features a library, theatre, dance studio, sports hall, gym, community rooms and a swimming pool and is well used by the local community.   

What's cooking? Camilla, who is also the Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, is pictured asking two pupils at Alford Community Campus what they are making for their cookery class to celebrate the Harvest Festival 

Princess Eugenie (HRH): It's definitely creeping up on us now, the nerves.

Jack Brooksbank (JB): We were skiing in a friend's place out in Switzerland, and [looking at Eugenie] I saw you first, didn't I?

HRH: Yes, and I thought, 'what a silly hat!' [laughs] ...and I thought, 'who's that?' and then [looking at Jack] you came over and shook my hand and I was all butterflies and nervous. I think I rang my mum that night and said 'I've met this guy Jack'... and that was it I think about how it started. I remember being like 'I really, really like this guy, I really want him to like me too' and then you gave me this huge windscreen wiper wave and that was it, right, he likes me.

EH: How would you describe each other in three words?

HRH: Jack's the kind of guy, you know when you're lost at a party and you can't find anyone to talk to, and you start panicking and you need help? He'll walk in and make everyone feel so special. He'll scoop you up and talk to you and make you feel a million dollars and [looks at Jack] that's you, and you're so humble and generous. So humble and generous - that's two words - and that person you immediately know [that] you've got a friend…

RL: [talking to Jack]: You're going to have your brother Tom as your Best Man, and [talking to Eugenie] you're going to have your sister Beatrice by your side as your Maid of Honour. How important it is for you both to have them there?

JB: It was so nice that we both chose our siblings.

HRH: Who are very good friends actually, separately to Jack and I, which is nice. But my sister has always - she's my big sissy - I've looked up to her my whole life. I've wanted to be her at times, we've fought over Converse trainers and who gets what… and you know, we're best friends and I can't think of anyone I'd want by my side more than her. She's the biggest supporter of 'Team Eug and Jack' and so it's a great honour for me that she said 'yes' and she's doing that duty. And then Tom…

JB: Yes, there was no other decision. [He's] a solid rock, he's amazing.

RL: You're the patron of many charities actually, how many people have you invited from your charities and how important is it for you that they are here?

HRH: It's very important. The RNOH is a huge charity - the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital - I'm patron of their appeal and I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you'll see on Friday, but it's a lovely way to honour the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this. I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it's really special to stand up for that. So that's one really important one. But seperate to that, other organisations that are there, it's just very important that they get a chance to be honoured for the work that they do constantly, so it's lovely that I can share this special day with them.

RL: How do you think you're going to feel walking down the aisle with your father by your side, what do you think will be going through your head at that point?

HRH: It's nerve-wracking and a bit scary and all the things that come with getting married, but at the end of the day you get to marry the person you love… [looking at Jack] and you're going to be at the end of the aisle, and I'm going to be running towards you! [Laughing]

HRH: No, [but] I've told my dad if he goes fast, that's it, we are not talking anymore! So he's going to go really slowly I hope.

EH: In the preparation for the wedding, was there ever any evidence that Eugenie turned into a Bridezilla?

JB: [Smiling] Well I've got two days left until…. No, I'm joking, there wasn't a Bridezilla. Eugenie has been amazing. She's been incredible, she has the ability to do a million things at once in her brain, including working as well as organising everything to do with the wedding.

EH: Andrea Bocelli with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be in the Chapel, in the church itself… Wow!

HRH: Andrea Bocelli and his wife Veronica are very good friends with my mum and they did a lot of charity work together, including working on his foundation, so welcoming a friend to come and sing was just an amazing opportunity and I'm so happy that he said 'yes' and he's coming with his family.

EH: That bit we know, what about the entertainment at the reception, is that secret?

HRH: Well we [looking at Jack] were maybe going to sing, weren't we? [Laughs]

JB: I actually thought you were being serious! I was thinking 'what are we singing?'

RL: And how is your dancing, have you planned a routine or are you just going to see what happens on the day?

JB: You're a very good dancer, I'm a very bad dancer!

RL: We've been together for 22 years, married, [is there] any advice you might like from an old married couple?

EH: Anything you'd like to ask us? Anything we could impart to you that would make your journey easier from here on in?

HRH: Oh gosh. What is it like working together and being married?

EH: If I could just say, in general, I think the secret to a long and happy marriage is never have a cross word between you… never, be like us, never a cross word!

EH: But do you know what, you are very good together the two of you and may you live happily ever after. It's been an absolute pleasure. Congratulations.

EH: As you go by in that carriage, we are just in the studio behind.

    printed T-shirt John Michie was wearing carried a photo of her face and the words 'Lou forever' in tribute to his daughter Louella Fletcher-Michie</p><p>The boyfriend of a Holby City star's daughter has blamed her parents for her drugs death, a court heard yesterday.</p><p>When questioned by police, Ceon Broughton, 29, denied giving a fatal overdose to Louella Fletcher-Michie at the Bestival music festival. He also lied that he had not taken any drugs himself, jurors heard.</p><p>Broughton, a rapper, said that, with a medical tent just over 400 yards away, he would have carried 24-year-old Miss Fletcher-Michie there.</p><p>But he claimed that her father John Michie, 62, and mother Carol, 68, instead told him on the phone to get help from someone in a high-vis jacket. </p><p>Jurors have heard he was serving a suspended sentence at the time, which prosecutors allege is why he did not seek help for his dying girlfriend in September 2017.</p><p>Mr Michie, who plays surgeon Guy Self in Holby City and has appeared in Coronation Street and Taggart, watched with his family in the public gallery yesterday as Winchester Crown Court heard details of Broughton's first police interview.</p><p>Miss Fletcher-Michie, who died the day before her 25th birthday, is the first person known to have been killed by the increasingly popular designer drug 2C-P. She would have survived had Broughton not been 'thinking only of himself', the court has heard.</p><p>Miss Fletcher-Michie initially had a 90 per cent chance of recovery. But jurors have been told that instead of phoning 999, Broughton stayed in a secluded wooded area at the Bestival event with her, documenting her decline and mental distress in disturbing videos and photos on his mobile phone.</p><p>Ceon Broughton arriving at Winchester Crown Court today, where he is on trial for manslaughter and supplying Class A drugs</p><p>Louella Fletcher-Michie (pictured in undated photos) died at Bestival after taking a psychedelic party drug  </p><p>During his first police interview, Broughton said he had taken no drugs with Miss Fletcher-Michie and did not know how she had got 2C-P.</p><p>In the interview, conducted the day after Miss Fletcher-Michie died Broughton claimed she had bought the drugs herself and he had not been there.</p><p>He told officers: 'I think she bought something, she bought LSD or something. We was just having fun and just chilling in the woods. She was tripping and then she said she had acid. She was fine at first, then it kind of spiralled.</p><p>Pictured left to right: Louella's sister, Daisy, and her boyfriend, Jamie Jamieson; and John Mitchie and his wife, Carol (outside Winchester Crown Court today) </p><p>Prosecutors allege that Broughton (seen with Louella) did not get her medical care straight away because he was on a suspended sentence </p><p>'I called her mum and she told me to get to someone in high-vis. I was trying to calm [Miss Fletcher-Michie] down, she was rolling around in stinging nettles and stuff. Her mum and dad said they were on their way. I wanted to carry her, I wanted to carry her myself, but they told me to get help. I would have carried her myself.' </p><p>Broughton said Miss Fletcher-Michie had left him as he ate a toasted sandwich at lunch time, which is when he thought she had bought the drugs.</p><p>Prosecutor Simon Jones told the court: 'He told officers it was definitely LSD she had taken, because she had said she had taken it.</p><p>'He confirmed later that he did not see where she got it from. He said he did not take anything. [He] said 'I am on community service right now, so I can't get into trouble'. </p><p>When asked, he said: 'No, I did not give her anything.' At the end, he was asked if he wanted to add anything else. Broughton said 'I am very distressed about this ... I am in pieces man, she's not coming back'.'</p><p>Mr Michie posted this picture on Instagram on the one-year anniversary of his daughter's death</p><p>Mr Michie said he desperately pleaded with security staff to let him into the site to help his dying daughter and even offered them his phone which contained a pinpoint GPS location of the couple</p><p>In a second interview, later the same day, he told officers again that he had not taken drugs at the Lulworth Castle site in Dorset. He said he had only two cans of cider and two lagers.</p><p>'He said he did not have a clear memory of the timings, but he was thinking clearly and trying to act rationally,' Mr Jones said. 'He was asked if he was not telling the officers something. </p><p>Hallucinogenic drug 2C-P has been described as having a similar effect as LSD, also known as acid.</p><p>Users are likely to experience a distorted view of reality and objects and will see and hear things that are not really there.</p><p>2C-P is in the 2C family of drugs and because it is a stimulant, it can make users feel alert and awake. The drugs, which can be smoked or snorted, also affect emotions. </p><p>At high doses, people can feel confused, agitated and in some cases propelled into a delirious state. The charity added that the drugs may cause panic attacks and in some cases 'acute psychosis'. </p><p>He said, 'Something I am not telling you? No, there's nothing'. The officers suggested he had not ensured Louella got the medical attention she needed. He said, 'Yeah man, I did. Oh man, I was trying to give her good medical care'. </p><p>He confirmed he did not dial 999. He said that was because people said they were sending help.</p><p>'The officers suggested he might have been tripping himself.</p><p>'He said, 'I was in a good position to take care of her. I acted rationally. You're talking like I want her to be dead'. </p><p>He said, 'I was caring for her. I was, I was, I was caring for her'.' The prosecutor added that Broughton claimed to officers that when he told friends at the festival he had drugs he was just joking.</p><p>But jurors have heard that blood samples showed he had 2C-P, MDMA, ketamine, diazepam and alprazolam in his system.</p><p>Broughton, of Enfield, north London, has already admitted two counts of supplying class A drugs in relation to giving Miss Fletcher-Michie and a friend 2C-P at Glastonbury Festival in June 2017.</p><p>He denies supplying Miss Fletcher-Michie the same drug at Bestival, and her manslaughter.

    Nurse, 37, admits confusing two lung cancer patients and injecting one with the other's painkillers

    cine – because they were both named Roger – a court has been told.</p><p>Mr Allardyce died four days later in February 2016, the Southwark Crown Court heard today.</p><p>Mr Allardyce had been suffering from lung cancer when the agency nurse confused him for another man on the ward who was also called Roger and was suffering from the same condition. </p><p>A court was told today the mix up did not cause the man's death. </p><p>Retired printer Mr Allardyce was admitted on February 21, 2016, accompanied by wife Anne, after he suffered from a blockage in his throat.</p><p>Prosecutor James Norman said: ‘He had suffered, for a number of years, from some serious health problems, the most serious of which was diagnosed in 2014 where he was discovered to have lung cancer.</p><p>‘He was unwell and uncomfortable and not receiving any pain relief.</p><p>‘On the same ward was another man also called Roger, also suffering from lung cancer, who was receiving pain relief in the form of morphine and midazolam.’</p><p>The following day, Starzynska and senior nurse Donner O’Sullivan were discussing which painkillers to administer to another patient, Roger Sutton, the court heard.</p><p>According to the prosecution the nurses began to talk about the injection but were each talking about a different Roger.</p><p>‘She made two basic errors before injecting Mr Allardyce with the syringe,’ explained the prosecutor.</p><p>‘She did not ask Mr Allardyce to confirm his own personal details, nor did she check, which she could have done, the identification bracelet attached to Mr Allardyce’s arm, either of which would have alerted her to her mistake.’</p><p>‘She got the wrong Roger,’ added Judge Christopher Hehir QC.</p><p>The prosecutor continued: ‘Shortly afterwards, Mr Allardyce appeared to his wife to fall asleep.’</p><p>‘Far from being asleep, he was in fact unconscious and unresponsive.</p><p>‘A crash team was called and efforts were made to try and reverse the effects of the medicine - regrettably they were not successful.’ </p><p>Doctors at the hospital eventually agreed that nothing could be done for the ageing printer and his life support was withdrawn in the early hours of 26 September.</p><p>‘What we have here is an unauthorised administration of drugs, which led to what must have been for Mr Allardyce’s wife a very distressing scenario and for his family in general, the very distressing experience of watching him deteriorate.’</p><p>The court heard how earlier that year, Starzynska had been reprimanded at Whipps Cross Hospital for taking a glass of milk into the controlled drugs room.</p><p>Andrew Morris, defending said the pathologist’s report concluded that the death had not been caused by the drugs.</p><p>He explained how Starzynska had travelled from Poland to the UK in 2003 and began her career in nursing in 2013.</p><p>The court was told how the defendant had suffered a breakdown since the incident and is currently living at a charity designed to help troubled women.</p><p>‘She has shown clear remorse right from the beginning,’ explained Mr Morris.</p><p>Sentencing Starzynska, judge Hehir said: ‘Your carelessness led to a series of events, it is a quite shocking carelessness of which you are guilty.</p><p>The Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead where Roger Alardyce died. Although there was an error in his treatment it did not cause his death</p><p>‘It is accepted that the unfortunate administration of the wrong drug had not caused his death.</p><p>‘He was a man who was gravely ill and died of other causes. He never really recovered although he did regain consciousness.</p><p>‘I have to record my profound sympathies for what must have been a distressing episode.’</p><p>Starzynska, of Egham Road, Plaistow, London, pleaded guilty to one count of administering a prescription only drug without authorisation.</p><p>She was ordered to pay a £300 fine and given three months in which to do so or face 14 days in prison.</p><p>The prosecution offered no evidence on a further count of failing to discharge a health and safety duty.</p><p>The nurse’s future in the career will be decided post-prosecution by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.</p><p> The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. </p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p>Your comment will be posted to MailOnline as usual.</p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p> We will automatically post your comment and a link to the news story to your Facebook timeline at the same time it is posted on MailOnline.

The trend will heighten fears that there could be a new epidemic of ram-raids across Britain.</p><p>The country was gripped by a wave of smash-and-grabs in the 1980s and early 1990s, with cars or vans commonly used to batter their way into cash machines or jewellery stores. </p><p>Northumbria Police yesterday released footage of the latest incident, saying said it ‘wouldn’t look out of place in The Italian Job’.</p><p>Rather than using red, white and blue Minis like Michael Caine’s mob in the 1969 caper, the criminals used a small black car as a battering ram. </p><p>Footage shows them using the vehicle to smash through doors at the Forum Shopping Centre in Wallsend at 4am, before driving through the mall and parking outside an O2 shop.</p><p>Two figures exit the black hatchback and head for the store, with one hooded thief swiping stock from the shop into his bag before the duo flee in their vehicle.

Attempts to steal cash have almost doubled from 400 in 2014 to 723 last year according to a report by ATM operator Cardtronics. </p><p>It suggested nearly half of all attacks could be considered dangerous, with gas explosions among the techniques used to blast out ATMs.</p><p>There has been a wave of ram-raids across the UK in recent weeks. Last Saturday, CCTV caught thieves using a stolen Mitsubishi Shogun to batter down the front of a convenience store in the village of Bells Yew Green in East Sussex.</p><p>They used a vehicle to bash into the shop front before ripping out the cash box from an ATM and towing it away.</p><p>On Wednesday, three masked robbers attempted to ram-raid a One Stop store in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, using a white Ford Transit van.</p><p>When that failed, they rushed in to the store with crowbars, took what they could and smashed up the premises before getting away in a BMW.</p><p>Last week, a stolen JCB was used to ram-raid a business in the village of Pinxton, Derbyshire.

Former Detective Superintendent Steve Wade, from Northumbria Police, recalled: ‘In the mid 80s and early 90s the crime of choice was ram-raiding.</p><p>‘They used to steal high-powered performance cars like Cosworths and Golf GTIs and just ram the shutters of shops and clear as much stuff as they could.’ Raids finally subsided after a police crackdown.</p><p> The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. </p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p>Your comment will be posted to MailOnline as usual.</p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p> We will automatically post your comment and a link to the news story to your Facebook timeline at the same time it is posted on MailOnline.

  • Vogue Brazil Fashion Director Resigns Over Photos That Evoke Slavery Era

    Vogue Brazil Fashion Director Resigns Over Photos That Evoke Slavery Era

    Brazil edition has resigned following an outcry over photographs from her 50th birthday party that critics saw as an allusion to race relations during the colonial era, when Brazil relied heavily on slave labor.</p><p>The executive, Donata Meirelles, who is white, posted the photographs on her Instagram account, where she appears smiling broadly sitting on an ornate chair flanked by two black women wearing elaborate white dresses.</p><p>Many Brazilians saw the images, taken in the predominantly black state of Bahia, as a throwback to Brazil’s colonial era, when light-skinned elites enslaved millions of people of African descent. Now, just over half of Brazilians identify as black or of mixed racial background, but discrimination remains a powerful force there.</p><p>But racism still pushes black Brazilians to the bottom of the economic ladder and keeps them largely invisible in Congress, the executive branch, corporate suites and news organizations.</p><p>Ana Lucia Araujo, a history professor at Howard University who studies slavery, said the controversy over Ms. Meirelles’s birthday has brought to the fore a topic many Brazilians are reluctant to acknowledge publicly.</p><p>“Racism and white supremacy are issues that have been ignored in Brazil,” she said. “This continues to be a central issue in Brazilian society and this event will lead us to pay much more attention to how black women are depicted and commodified in Brazilian culture.”</p><p>Ms. Araujo and many Brazilians said the mere presence of women dressed in the traditional baiana outfit of white blouse, skirt, headwrap and beads should not be construed as racist.</p><p>It is also a way to earn a living for many: Women in the starched white outfit are often hired to meet tourists disembarking from cruises in Bahia and can be seen selling traditional street food.</p><p>But the figure, cast uncritically, can evoke a racist past. Ms. Araujo said that the photo in which Ms. Meirelles is sitting, surrounded by baianas, was insensitive — or at least tone deaf.</p><p>“Black flesh used to be the cheapest on the market but not anymore,” she added. “We’ll yell that out to anyone who hasn’t understood it yet. Slavery is not a joke.”</p><p>One of the women in the photos, Rita Ventura dos Santos, told the newspaper that she and her colleagues did not consider themselves to have been pawns.</p><p>“Whoever wants to criticize the party is at liberty to do so,” she told Folha. “But I am no child to have been put myself in a degrading situation.”</p><p>Ms. Meirelles signaled that the uproar had taken an emotional toll. On Thursday night, she posted a photo montage on Instagram featuring two women sitting on a massive Prozac pill.</p><p>It’s far from the first time the fashion industry has been found itself embroiled in controversy for insensitive or outright racist depictions.</p>
