Princess Eugenie Finally Gets Engaged To Longtime Boyfriend
Princess Eugenie is getting engaged to her BFF Jack Brooksbank.
The announcement comes straight from Buckingham Palace’s Twitter feed in an official statement.
“The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr. Jack Brooksbank,” the statement begins. “Her Royal Highness and Mr. Brooksbank became engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month. The wedding will take place in the Autumn of 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, with further details to be announced in due course.”
The two have dated ever since meeting on the slopes at a Swiss ski resort seven years ago. Eugenie was still in her studies at Newcastle University at the time.
The 27-year-old princess said yes to the 31-year-old former bartender and current hospitality manager in Nicaragua earlier in January. The wedding is reportedly planned for later this fall.
The wedding is set to take place at Saint George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same venue that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are scheduled to wed in May.
According to a family friend speaking with People, “He is a really lovely chap.” The source then added, “They adore each other and are really serious.”
They must be as the pair have endured long separations and still remain deeply in love. Princess Eugenie left to New York in 2013 to work at the auction house Paddle8, the same company that auctioned off Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album.
“He’s not a jet-setty type,” said the source, noting that the two kept in touch via Skype during their separation.
Her mother, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, was over the moon at the news of her daughter’s engagement and made sure to signal boost the announcement on her Twitter feed.
Then she may have gone a little overboard, posting several more words of encouragement to black and white photos of the happy couple.
Brooksbank is a former bartender who now works at the trendy Markham Inn. He’s also a manager at the Mahiki nightclub, a venue known for appealing to younger royals.
