Prince Andrew Duke of York has announced his youngest daughter Princess Eugenie will marry Jack Brooksbank on Friday, 12 October 2018, at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The Princess, who is eighth in the line of succession to the British throne, met Jack through friends at the Swiss ski resort Verbier where he was working as a waiter, in 2010.
According to a statement from Buckingham Palace on 22 January 2018, the couple became engaged in Nicaragua earlier last month.
The BBC’s The One Show’s Matt Baker interviewed the newly-engaged couple when and where the proposal took place.
Jack proposed on bended knee as the sun was setting near a volcano and a romantic lake.
Eugenie said the proposal was completely unexpected even though they had been together for seven years.
When asked, Eugenie and Jack said they told very few people, mostly their parents, siblings and grandparents.
Eugenie said ‘Granny know right at the beginning’ as Jack added that Queen Elizabeth was ‘was incredibly happy.’
The marriage of Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank will take place on 12th October 2018.
As previously announced, the wedding will take place at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
