It was well known that Princess Eugenie's wedding was going to be a star-studded affair.

Amal was giving a keynote speech at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women.

While a slew of celebs attended Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's royal wedding, several stars who were expected to show up were unable to make it.

Other celebrities, including Cara Delevingne and Naomi Campbell, were in attendance at the ceremony.

Back in May, Amal and George attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, Amal wearing a yellow Stella McCartney dress and George keeping it classic in a gray suit.

Clooney was the keystone speaker at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women where she took to the podium and criticized Trump for mocking Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate against Judge Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month.

Despite the fact that Eugenie's husband Jack Brooksbank is the United Kingdom ambassador for George's Casamigos tequila company, the Hollywood power couple made the decision not to attend the United Kingdom wedding.

Though the robot isn't quite at the level of human activities, Boston Dynamics has made great strides over the last couple years. Boston Dynamics released a video Thursday of its bipedal Atlas robot, which is created to look like a humanoid.

Jack works for Casamigos tequila, which was founded by Clooney and Cindy Crawford's husband Rande Gerber.

The groom and George Clooney are believed to be friends.

Clooney received a standing ovation for her passionate speech, as she said: "Survivors in any country deserve the chance to look their abusers in the eye and for history to record what has happened to them".

Jack had previously revealed he would still be serving the tequila at the royal wedding.

And a spokesperson from the tequila brand confirmed to INSIDER that a selection of bespoke Casamigos cocktails would be served to guests throughout the wedding weekend.
