Princess Eugenie will welcome 850 guests tomorrow to her and Jack Brooksbank’s royal wedding at St. George’s Chapel. But with the invite comes a strict list of rules to follow, Vanity Fair is reporting. Literally, guests got an information packet outlining every ‘do’ and ‘don’t’, and the guidelines are very, very excessive compared to non-royal weddings.

First, Eugenie has banned cell phones, cameras, and guests posting anything about her royal wedding receptions (daytime and evening) on social media. Per VF’s Katie Nicholl, guests will be asked “to surrender mobile telephones, cameras, and any electronic devices used for image capture” on arrival at the reception. Cameras generally aren’t permitted as “photography is not allowed in St George’s Chapel or Windsor Castle.” And no hand luggage is allowed either.
No gifts are permitted and should be sent instead to her father, Prince Andrew’s, office at Buckingham Palace. Two, yes two, forms of identification are required to get into the wedding too. And guests have been advised there are “limited toilet facilities” in the church that will only be available for use between 8 and 10 a.m. The service starts at 11 a.m., and guests need to be seated by 10:15 a.m., for reference. Such are the strings that come with attending a royal wedding.
