LONDON, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on Friday married in front of the Royal Family and 850 guests at Windsor Castle.

The Queen's granddaughter and Brooksbank, 32, exchanged vows in a lavish ceremony in the same chapel where Meghan and Harry married in May this year.

Roads were closed, balloted tickets offered to members of the public and the streets of Windsor scattered with royal devotees, but this was, insisted the father of the bride before the service, "not a public wedding. This is meant to be a family wedding".

Princess Eugenie, 28, is the younger daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah. She is employed as a director at the London art gallery Hauser & Wirth.

Eugenie followed a modern royal tradition by omitting the promise to "obey" her new husband as the Dean of Windsor David Conner officiated.

The tradition to leave out the promise to obey was first started by her late aunt Princess Diana, and followed by cousins Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Jack also followed royal tradition in not receiving a wedding ring during the ceremony, in a tradition also followed by Prince William but broken by Harry.
