Its Official. Princess Eugenie Victoria Helena of York is married. The princess married Jack Brooksbank today.
”The Duke of York’s Office at Buckingham Palace announced the engagement of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on 22 January 2018. The couple have been dating for seven years, and were first introduced by friends in a ski break in Verbier, Switzerland, where Brooksbank was working at the time.
Brooksbank proposed on one knee in Nicaragua, as the couple holidayed; he didn’t present a ring at the time, but had bought an oval-cut Padparadscha sapphire ring beforehand. Upon their return, he and Princess Eugenie worked on the design of a ring together; the finished design was the salmon-pink sapphire surrounded by a halo of diamonds, set on a gold band, with two further diamonds on the shoulders.
Brooksbank confirmed he had asked Eugenie’s father for permission in the couple’s brief TV interview, conducted by The One Show host, Matt Baker. In April 2018, the couple moved from St James’s Palace and took residence in Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace.
Their wedding took place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, today 12 October 2018.
As Princess Eugenie is ninth in the line of succession to the throne, the Queen’s permission to marry is not required under the Succession to the Crown Act 2013. Princess Eugenie will keep her royal title when she marries. She will also have the option of taking her husband’s surname.
