For anyone looking to follow along with Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's royal wedding, you're in luck: Not only will the ceremony be broadcast live on ITV, but the couple officially have their very own wedding hashtag.

No, it's not #EugenieandJack or #ThePrincessFindsHerPrince—it's simply #royalwedding2.

On Tuesday, ITV newscaster Chris Ship confirmed the hashtag by tweeting: "From @ITV: the #royalwedding2 will be shown live in a special edition of @thismorning from 9:25 to 12:30 on Friday 12 October. @EamonnHolmes & @RuthieeL will present from a studio in Windsor."

And if the hashtag sounds familiar, it's because ITV marked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May 19 nuptials with #royalwedding. It seems that the "2" was added to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's iteration so that posts from the events wouldn't get confused. Considering that the second royal wedding will also be held at St. George's Chapel—the same place where Meghan and Harry's big day took place—it makes things that much more confusing for fans trying to keep up.

In addition to the live coverage of the event from inside St. George's Chapel on ITV, Britain's BBC and SkyNews will also be showing news related to the wedding and its biggest moments throughout the day on October 12, Cosmopolitan UK reports. Princess Eugenie's Father, Prince Andrew, had reportedly tried to negotiate live coverage with the BBC (which broadcast Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding), but the network passed—a move many saw as a snub to Jack and Eugenie.

With the year's second royal wedding less than two weeks away, excitement levels are at an all-time high. Eugenie may have revealed a hint about the dress she's chosen for the big day on Instagram earlier this week, but it looks like fans will have to follow along with #royalwedding2 on October 12 to see if their suspicions were right.
