Whats Sarah Ferguson wearing for her daughter Princess Eugenies wedding?

Green, clearly.

Sarah Ferguson made quite the style statement as the wedding by arriving in a bright green dress, along with a matching hat.

The outfit has drawn comparisons to the green sweet from Quality Street.

She completed her outfit with sparkling emerald earrings and a nude toned bag.

She fist-pumped and waved to the crowds as she arrived.

The Duchesss dress is by a local Windsor company called Emma Louise Design, while her bag is a vintage Manolo Blahnik that her late mother Susan Barrantes carried at Sarahs wedding.

We dont yet know who designed her hat.

While most people are fans of the Duchess of Yorks bold colour choice, it has drawn some interesting comments on Twitter.

Where have the royals honeymooned in the past?

After their lavish wedding at Westminster Abbey, Kate and William put their honeymoon on hold for 10 days while William headed back to work as a search-and-rescue pilot.

While they tried to keep their honeymoon top secret, Kensington Palace eventually confirmed that the newlyweds were spending 10 days on a secluded villa on a private island north of the Seychelles. The island holds special memories for the Cambridges as it's the destination they jetted to when they got back together after a brief split in 2007.

It's understood they would have spent longer lapping up the luxury in the Seychelles but William's work commitments and their scheduled tour to the United States and Canada meant they had to cut it short.
