There has been much discussion over whether Eugenie and Jack's wedding would be aired on TV.

Unlike the wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May, the nuptials will not be broadcast simultaneously on both ITV and BBC.

BBC will instead air news items on the wedding throughout the day, as will Sky News.

Eugenie, 28, and Jack, 31, will marry in the same venue as Harry and Meghan - now The Duke and Duchess of Sussex - of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Similar to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the couple will also invite more than 1,000 members of the public into the grounds of Windsor Castle to join their celebrations.

They will undertake a short ride in a carriage from the Royal Mews, out of Windsor Castle and on to part of the High Street after the wedding.
