Princess Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank are will tie the knot on Friday October 12 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle - the same venue at which Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed in May.

Along with Williams' five-year-old daughter, Theodora Rose, other flower girls will be three-year-old Princess Charlotte and Maud Windsor, the four-year-old daughter of Lord Freddie Windsor and his actress wife Sophie Winkleman, according to the Mail on Sunday.

Eugenie is ninth in line to the throne since the birth of Prince Louis, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third child.

After leaving Take That in 1995, Williams achieved significant commercial success as a solo act. During his career he struggled with addiction to alcohol and drugs.

Last year he boasted that he "smoked a spliff in Buckingham Palace" when he headlined the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert in 2012.
