London – The royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank was a big hit in terms of British TV viewership.

In this photo released on Saturday, Oct. 13 2018 by Buckingham Palace, Britain's Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank are photographed at Royal Lodge, Windsor, England, ahead of the private evening dinner, following their Wedding.

ITV said Saturday that it added roughly 2.1 million viewers during its extended morning program that showed live coverage of Friday’s wedding at Windsor Castle.

ITV was the only U.K. broadcaster that showed the entire service live from St. George’s Chapel.

The wedding bouquet of Britain's Princess Eugenie is laid on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey in London, Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018, a day after her wedding to Jack Brooksbank in Windsor.

Competitors BBC and Sky News showed snippets of the wedding and the crowds thronging the streets of Windsor outside the castle.

BBC blamed a failure of its voice recognition system for a subtitle that briefly referred to Eugenie’s “beautiful breasts” rather than her “beautiful dress” as she walked up the stairs to the chapel.

Eugenie is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and ninth in line to the British throne.
