Many of those who watched Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding on October 12 2018 were drawn to compare it to the nuptials of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The weddings took place at the same venue, St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle, just a few months apart.
Among the people who made a comparison there was also one of the key guests at both nuptials, Zara – according to a lip reader.
Zara and her husband Mike were sitting near Harry and Meghan during the emotional wedding ceremony of Eugenie and Jack.
The cousins were spotted on video chatting to one another, with Prince Harry stretching across his bench to get closer to Zara.
Now a lip reader has claimed to know what the Olympian equestrian told the Duke of Sussex.
They told the MirrorOnline Zara said: “It’s very quiet compared to the screaming at your wedding.”
Harry appeared to reply only saying: “Mine?”
The couple were then seen smile at each other.
Princess Eugenie married in front of an 850-strong crowd including members of the Royal Family and A-listers.

Meghan and Eugenie haven’t been the only royals who had recently married at St George’s Chapel.
One year after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot, 52nd-in-line
to the throne Lady Gabriella also chose to say ‘I do’ to her fiancée Thomas Kingston at the same Windsor chapel.
While Meghan and Eugenie’s weddings presented a few similarities, the younger daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson had starkly different nuptials than her sister Princess Beatrice.
Beatrice was due to marry her beau Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at the Chapel Royal in London in front of a much smaller crowd.
However, the coronavirus pandemic prevented the loved-up pair to tie the knot on May 29.
After the Government gave the go-ahead to resume small, socially-distanced ceremonies, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo married in secret in Windsor.
However, the pair didn’t choose the majestic St George’s Chapel like Eugenie and Jack but preferred the smaller All Saints Chapel, minutes away from the Yorks home – the Royal Lodge.
Among the key differences between Eugenie and Beatrice’s weddings there were the number of guests.
Beatrice and Edoardo tied the knot in front of just 20 people – including their parents, Beatrice’s sister and the property developer’s young son Christopher.
While the full guest list has been kept a secret, Buckingham Palace revealed Prince Philip and the Queen were among the attendees.
The senior royals appeared also in the pictures shared by the palace.
Stepping out of their self-isolation at Windsor Castle, the Duke and the monarch were seen smiling at Edoardo and Beatrice while staying two metres away from them.
Zara and Mike are unlikely to have attended the secretive wedding, as the couple continue to self-isolate in their residence in Gloucestershire.
Similarly, Prince Harry and Meghan are highly unlikely to have flown across
the pond to have taken part in the nuptials.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex now live in California, where they are setting up their new post-royal life by working behind the scene on their new organisation, Archewell, as well as continuing to support causes close to their hearts.
