Another royal princess is tying the knot and you can wager on what she and Queen Elizabeth will have on their heads.

Have room in your life for one more royal wedding? Well your invitation finally arrived.

Princess Eugenie, daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, is marrying Jack Brooksbank on Friday in what is sure to be a quaint, sweet affair as opposed to the Super Bowl event that was Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ceremony in May.

If you’re having trouble which royal is Princess Eugenie let us help you out.

Princess Eugenie forever forged her place in royal memory for the almost-wedding stealing hat she wore at the nuptials of Prince William to Kate Middleton in 2011.

You remember – the small blue boat of hat backfilled with flowers and feathers. Of course, it did pale in comparison to her sister Beatrice’s pale pink vertical bow fascinator that resembled a giant Aunt Annie’s pretzel.

After getting mocked in the press, the sisters hired a stylist to retool their image which likely prompted the downright sedate hats they wore in May at cousin Harry’s wedding – a simple white pillbox for Eugenie and multi-color headband for Eugenie.

I guess it is too much to ask that Beatrice wear the pretzel hat on Friday.

The interest in royal headgear has prompted two prop bets for Eugenie’s wedding at Paddy Power:

  • What tiara will Eugenie wear when she weds? The list of choices is astoundingly long, 20 to be exact. We think somewhere near the end of the list we saw “kitchen sink.” The favored choice at 4/9 odds has sentimental value -- the Duchess of York Wedding Tiara, worn by her mum when she married Andrew before it all went to hell. The diamond and platinum headpiece, gifted to Sarah the Duchess of York by her then-mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth, features leaf motifs and scrollwork. Other choices, all at 4/1, include The Strathmore Rose tiara, a new commission from designer Garrad, and that she won’t wear a tiara at all. Yeah, that last one isn’t going to happen. The longshot is The Spencer Family tiara at 66/1. Consider it her “something borrowed,” we’re betting the York tiara we be on Eugenie’s head.
  • What color hat will the Queen wear during the ceremony? Every shade on the color spectrum is represented with the queen’s favorite blue being favored at 13/8, followed by yellow (3/1), pink (7/1) and green or purple at 8/1. Our dream is tartan at 300/1, but we’re going with blue.

The wedding will air in the United States on TLC beginning at about 4 a.m. Friday with reruns running throughout the day.
