Princess Eugenie Follows in Diana's Footsteps With This Major Change to Her Wedding Vows
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will officially become husband and wife when they tie the knot on Oct. 12, but the royal is making one significant change to her wedding vows ahead of the big day. According to People, the princess will follow in Princess Diana's footsteps and omit the word "obey" from her wedding vows.
After the wine merchant says his vows to Eugenie, she will tell Jack, "I, Eugenie Victoria Helena, take thee, Jack Christopher Stamp, to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse: for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to God's holy law; and thereto I give thee my troth."
Eugenie's decision to remove the promise to obey her husband shouldn't come as a surprise. The late Diana was the first royal bride to start the tradition when she wed Prince Charles in 1981 and Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle followed suit at their weddings. Will you be tuning in to watch Eugenie and Jack's nuptials on Friday?
