The royal weddings of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have won Tatler party awards.

The star-studded marriage of Harry and Meghan was named wedding of the year by the society magazine, which singled out the hosting by James Corden, DJing by Idris Elba, dancing by George Clooney and a performance by Sir Elton John as the reasons why.

Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland was named best person to sit next to in the awards, with the magazine saying: “It was the hottest ticket of the season, and the hottest seat was next to Meghan’s poised, free-spirited mother.

“She stole our hearts at the royal wedding – and she’s quite a dancer, too.”

The more recent nuptials of Harry’s cousin Princess Eugenie were recognised for their best party bag gift, with Tatler impressed by the trainers handed out to guests at their festival-themed party at Windsor the day after their ceremony.
