The palace bungles Princess Eugenie wedding tweet – can you spot the blunder?

The palace bungles Princess Eugenie wedding tweet – can you spot the blunder?

The official Royal Family twitter account was forced to delete one tweet about Princess Eugenie’s upcoming wedding because of a glaring error.

The Queen’s granddaughter is set to say “I do” to her fiancé later today in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle – the same location as Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding earlier this year.

Although it is the second royal wedding of the year, the error in the tweet led fans to question whether less attention is being given to Eugenie’s nuptials.

Can you spot the mistake in this tweet?

The tweet bungled the name of Eugenie’s partner, referring to him as Mr Jacksbrook rather than his correct surname, Mr Brooksbank.

The account, which has 3.81 million followers, quickly received backlash for the typo.

One person replied: “I believe “Bank Jacksbrook” is his super secret spy name.”

Another said: “It’s Jack Brooksbank, or Jacksbrook to his rapper crew.”

The tweet stayed on the account for 40 minutes until someone alerted the Royals to the error.

The tweet was later reposted with the correct spelling.

Eugenie, 28, will have a traditional church service which will be followed by the newlyweds embarking on a carriage ride through the streets of Windsor.

Guests will then move to the Queen’s residence for an afternoon reception at Windsor Castle.

In the evening, there will be a formal sit-down dinner at the Royal Lodge in Windsor, the residence of her parents Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

The following day, the newlyweds and their friends and family will be enjoying a festival-themed afternoon party.

Princess Eugenie first met Jack when she was 20 years old while at a Swiss holiday resort in Verbier.
