When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot on May 19, the public deemed it the wedding of the year.

But, while it was stunning and distinguished event, Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie might be giving the newlyweds a run for their money with her upcoming nuptials.

On October 12, Eugenie and her fiance Jack Brooksbank will wed in a two-day affair, with the ceremony taking place at St. George’s Chapel, which was the same venue Harry and Meghan exchanged their vows.

It's said Eugenie and Jack's wedding will be even bigger than Harry and Meghan's, as Daily Mail reported the couple have invited 850 guests to their ceremony, compared to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's 650.

The royals will also be giving 1,200 members of the public access to the grounds of Windsor Castle. While there, guests can "view the arrival of the congregation and the royal family, listen to a live broadcast of the ceremony and watch the bride and groom depart from St. George's Chapel."

They can apply for up to four tickets on the royal family's website, with the winning recipients to be contacted later this month.

After the ceremony, Queen Elizabeth II will host a luncheon at Windsor Castle, followed by an evening reception at Royal Lodge, Eugenie's family home.

The following day, guests will return to the Royal Lodge for an afternoon festival-themed party, which will include a fairground and food stalls.

While there have been rumours the bride and groom have hired the Queen's cousin Lady Elizabeth Anson as their wedding planner, a source close to the couple told PEOPLE Eugenie and Jack are "running the show."

“It is Eugenie and Jack’s party and they are very much involved in all the details and decisions," the insider said.

Along with the Princess of York's extended family in attendance, celebrities such as Victoria and David Beckham, Elton John, Ellie Goulding, and James Blunt are all expected to make an appearance as well.

George and Amal Clooney are also rumored to be there, as Jack is a brand ambassador the Casamigos tequila company, which was cofounded by the Argo actor in 2013.

Royal experts estimate the wedding will cost about £2.7 million ($3.5 million USD), and will be environmentally friendly.

"My whole house is anti-plastic now, and Jack and I want our wedding to be like that as well," Eugenie said in an interview with British Vogue.

But despite all pressure of planning a wedding, Eugenie said it's all worth it in the end.

"It's very nerve-wracking because you want it to be perfect but then you realize that you're going to be with the person you love forever and nothing else really matters," Eugenie told the publication.
