"One guest tested positive or was pinged for COVID contact and therefore no one else was able to gather," a source told The Sun. "As a result, they called off the service and reception party afterwards at Royal Lodge, Prince Andrew's home. The Queen and Eugenie's parents Fergie and Prince Andrew had all been due to attend."

The special event was supposed to be held at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, and 30 people were reportedly invited.
