There's just a week to go until the second big royal wedding of the year and today Princess Eugenie was spotted arriving at Buckingham Palace for a meeting, no doubt to put the finishing touches to arrangements for the big day.
The bride-to-be looked relaxed as she was driven through the palace gates, shielding her eyes from the Autumn sunshine in a pair of trendy round glasses.
She took advantage of the unseasonally warm weather to sport a floaty black dress by All Saints with cut outs at the shoulders.
The princess, 28, looked fresh-faced and glowing and wore her auburn locks loosely tied back from her face.
By this time next week, Eugenie will be a married woman after exchanging vows with her fiancé at 11am at St George's Chapel in Windsor, in front of their families and a rumoured host of celebrity guests.
Princess Beatrice will undoubtedly accompany her sister down the aisle as a bridesmaid, while Prince George and Princess Charlotte are also rumoured to be playing a starring role.
Following the exchange of vows, they will carry out a short carriage procession to greet wellwishers before arriving back at Windsor Castle for a lunch hosted by the Queen.
In the evening, Prince Andrew is said to be throwing a lavish party at the Royal Lodge, Windsor, with a drinks menu curated by the groom, including free-flowing tequila from George Clooney's Casamigos - the spirits brand Jack works for.

The happy couple will exchange vows in front of the Dean of Windsor, the Right Rev David Conner.
Eugenie appears to have paid a sweet tribute to her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, by choosing the Archbishop of York John Sentamu to lead the prayers.
Princess Eugenie is due to arrive at St George's Chapel at 11am and, although it's tradition for the bride to be fashionably late, royal weddings run to a strict schedule.
The ceremony is being held at the same venue where Meghan and Harry, Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly and Sophie and Edward exchanged vows, and is expected to last around an hour.
THE CARRIAGE PROCESSION
Eugenie and Jack's 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.
Rather like Harry and Meghan, who married at the same venue in May 2018, Eugenie and Jack are predicted to be surrounded by A-list invitees.
There's expected to be some crossover of social circles with Amal and George Clooney, James Blunt, Cressida Bonas, Elton John and the Beckhams all tipped to attend their second royal nuptials of the year.
But Eugenie's guest list is set to have an extra sprinkling of edginess in the form of a younger, cool crowd that includes pop singer Ellie Goulding, Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse, and modelling royalty Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford.
Today the bride's mother Sarah Ferguson confirmed that surgeon Jan Lehovsky, a doctor at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, who performed corrective surgery for scoliosis on Eugenie when she was 12, will be among the guests.
The consultant orthopaedic spinal surgeon also fitted two 1.5-inch screws to Eugenie's neck in the eight-hour procedure, which help her to stand straight to this day.
'She did have what would have been very serious curvature of the spine,' the Duchess of York told the Evening Standard.
'She certainly will be an extraordinary example of great work from the RNOH. The wedding is about love, future and inclusivity.'
MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC AND CHARITY REPS WHO GOT AN INVITE
The couple invited members of the public to apply to join the celebrations in the grounds of Windsor Castle and sent out 1,200 invitations after whittling down 100,000 applications.
They will be joined by representatives of charities and organisations supported by the couple - including the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital where Eugenie received treatment for scoliosis.
The Teenage Cancer Trust, the Salvation Army and the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women will also be represented.
Eugenie has also chosen to include her former schools St George’s School and Coworth Flexlands School by inviting youngsters from both, as well as members of the community from around Windsor, Castle residents and Royal Household staff.
British brand Erdem has emerged as the clear front-runner to design Princess Eugenie's wedding dress, ahead of her big day.
Eugenie, 28, is known to be a big fan of the label, wearing designs by the designer on a number of occasions - including for her official engagement photograph with fiance Jack Brooksbank.
Ladbrokes now has Erdem as 7/2 favourite to be unveiled as the wedding dress designer, followed by Suzannah, Jenny Packham and Alice Temperley.
Eugenie previously revealed in an interview with British Vogue that her wedding dress designer would be British.
'I'm not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British based designer,' she told the magazine.
Her revelation that the designer has been British-based has increased the speculation around Erdem.
The brand's eponymous designer Erdem Moralioglu, who is originally from Canada, had been been widely tipped to get the big job of designing the Duchess of Sussex's wedding dress.
Although the venue has not officially been confirmed by Buckingham Palace, Eugenie and Jack are reportedly having their evening party at her father Prince Andrew's home, The Royal Lodge at Windsor.
The venue is three miles away from the main castle, so royal fans will most likely get a second view of Eugenie and her new husband as they depart for the evening do.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were photographed leaving for their evening reception at Frogmore House, and Eugenie is expected to follow the former Suits star's example by changing into a second gown for the party.
Guests will be treated to lashings of Casamigos tequila, the label co-founded by Hollywood star George Clooney and of which Jack is European brand manager.
‘I’ve not been kept out of all the planning. I get to decide some things. I’m in charge of drinks and we’ll be serving Casamigos,’ he told the Mail's Sebastian Shakespeare
WHERE WILL EUGENIE AND JACK MARRY?
The stunning 15th century gothic St George's Chapel is set in the Lower Ward of the Queen's beloved Windsor Castle.
Steeped in history, it offers a slightly more intimate venue for royal nuptials, but one that is still appropriately grand.
It usually holds around 800 guests and is convenient for the Queen, now 91, and the Duke of Edinburgh, 96, who spend a great deal of time at home in the Berkshire castle.
Here's a look at some of the royal weddings which have taken place in the Chapel:
Peter and Autumn Phillips
The last royal wedding at St George's Chapel was Peter Phillips - son of the Princess Royal - who married Canadian Autumn Kelly in 2008.
The royal family traditionally gather together on the vast West Steps afterwards for photographs.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall
Charles and Camilla were blessed, rather than married, in the Chapel in 2005.
Their actual civil ceremony was held in private, down the road in Windsor's Town Hall.
Camilla - who, like Charles, was a divorcee - switched her outfit for the religious blessing.
The Queen, who is head of the Church of England, did not attend the civil ceremony but was there for the televised blessing in the Chapel conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The Earl and Countess of Wessex
In 1999, Eugenie's uncle, the Earl of Wessex, married Sophie Rhys-Jones, now the Countess of Wessex, at St George's.
The couple waved to onlookers as they took a carriage ride through the town.
Here are some of the other events St George's is known for:
Order of the Garter ceremony
It is the Chapel of the Order of the Garter, the senior order of chivalry in England, established in 1348 by Edward III.
Each year in June, royals who are Knights and Ladies of the Garter proceed in carriages from the state apartments down the hill to the chapel for the traditional Order of the Garter ceremony.
They dress in their Garter robes - heavy blue velvet capes and black velvet hats with elaborate white ostrich plumes.
The church has been the setting for many historic funerals including the Queen Mother's private committal service following her Westminster Abbey funeral in 2002, and in the same year, Princess Margaret's small, private funeral.
