Listen up, royal wedding fans—with less than 100 days (86, to be exact) until Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's nuptials at Windsor Castle, the couple just shared some exciting new info regarding their guest list. While we still don't know for sure which members of Eugenie's A-list posse will land an invite, we do know that the betrothed pair wants to follow in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's footsteps by inviting members of the general public to partake in their big day.

"Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York and Mr. Jack Brooksbank will invite members of the public to join in the celebrations of their wedding on Friday 12th October," a Buckingham Palace statement announced earlier today. The Palace added via Twitter that "1,200 members of the public will be able to view the arrival of the congregation and Members of the Royal Family, listen to a live broadcast of the Marriage Service and watch the start of the procession as the couple depart at the end of the Wedding ceremony."

But, before you book your flight to London to catch a glimpse of Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank, there is a catch—interested members of the public must fill out an application in order to be considered for this privilege, and only citizens of the United Kingdom will make the cut (sorry, guys). However, if you do happen to meet the criteria, you can fill out the electronic ballot here.

The royal statement also revealed that locals from the Windsor community and schools, which Eugenie attended, will be watching the royal cavalcade from the Castle Grounds. Brooksbank and his future bride have chosen to invite members of the charities they both condone, as well.

Following the couple's vows at St. George's Chapel, the same spot Harry and Meghan were married, Eugenie and Brooksbank will begin their traditional post-wedding carriage procession. "The carriage will process through the grounds of Windsor Castle, departing via Castle Hill to proceed along part of the High Street before returning to the Castle via Cambridge Gate," the Palace press release added.

Now that Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are officially taking more cues than one from their recent royal wedding predecessors, here's hoping these lovebirds will also mimic Meghan and Harry with a televised ceremony. An American can only dream...
