There will be no wedding hashtag for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. The royal couple, who will marry at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Friday, October 12, has released a stringent set of rules and code of conduct that their guests must follow, according to Vanity Fair.

The pair has asked their hundreds of guests to meet at the Farm Shop in the town of Windsor. They will then be transported to St. George’s Chapel via a fleet of minibuses to be seated in the chapel by 10:15 a.m. local time (5:15 a.m. ET/2:15 a.m. PT). The royal family will start trickling in around 10:25 a.m. and the wedding officially begins at 11:00 a.m. local time.

The royal packet also maintains that guests must keep their phones at bay and no social media is allowed, though St. George’s Chapel prohibits the usage of phones anyways. However, if guests bring their phones to the reception, they will be asked “to surrender mobile telephones, cameras, and any electronic devices used for image capture.”

The guide reportedly includes other key information like how guests will not have access to lavatories and they must bring two separate IDs. The bathroom inside the church will only be open from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. After that, attendees will be asked to return to their seats and await the bride and groom’s arrival 45 minutes later.

Finally, guests have been asked not to bring gifts, though Eugenie and Brooksbank have a wedding registry.

The bride’s cousin Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married at the same exact venue in May. Like the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex, Eugenie and Brooksbank will then take a carriage ride around the castle streets to welcome subjects and their newfound marriage.
