  • Princess Eugenie‘s wedding gown featured design elements similar to both Kate Middleton‘s and Meghan Markle‘s.
  • Like Middleton, Eugenie opted for a ballgown-style dress with floral embroidery and a flowing train.
  • Her open neckline and long sleeves were reminiscent of Markle’s gown.
  • Eugenie incorporated her own personal style by not wearing a veil and opting for a unique, low-back design.

Like Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, Princess Eugenie walked down the aisle for her royal wedding on Friday in an elegant gown that fused traditional design elements with a few touches of her own personal style.

Eugenie went with a gown by British-based designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos for her big day.

The ballgown-style design of Eugenie’s dress calls to mind the Alexander McQueen dress Middleton wore for her wedding in April 2011, which also featured floral embroidery and a flowing train.

Meanwhile, the open neckline of Eugenie’s gown is reminiscent of the bateau neckline of Markle’s Givenchy wedding dress, which has become a staple in the Duchess of Sussex’s wardrobe. The full, long-sleeved design of Eugenie’s dress is also quite similar to Markle’s.

However, Eugenie’s bridal ensemble has one major difference. The princess chose not to wear a veil as she walked down the aisle, perhaps to highlight the low-back design that showcased her scar from a scoliosis correctional surgery. Middleton went with a traditional veil for her wedding, while Markle opted for a 16-foot-long one for hers.

Ultimately, Eugenie’s gown fused all of the best parts of Middleton and Markle’s dresses, while adding her own unique sense of style.
