Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank officially tied the knot Friday morning, and ugh, were these two a sight for sore eyes. You didn’t have to be in Windsor to witness the tremendous love between the couple, who dated for seven years before saying “I do.” In fact, just looking at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s body language at their wedding tells us everything we need to know — these two are a match made in royal heaven.
Princess Eugenie, the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York (Queen Elizabeth’s son, Prince Charles’ younger brother) and Sarah, Duchess of York, met her now-husband Brooksbank seven years ago, at the Swiss ski resort Verbier. Friends of the couple say it was love at first sight, the Daily Mail reports, and the two have been dating ever since. They were even long-distance for two years while Eugenie worked at an online art auction house in New York City. The 32-year-old Brooksbank (a UK ambassador for George Clooney’s tequila brand, Casamigos) proposed to the 28-year-old princess in Nicaragua this past January with a stunning padparadscha sapphire ring.
“The lake was so beautiful,” Eugenie told The One Show’s Matt Baker, of Brooksbank’s proposal. “The light was just a special light I had never seen. I actually said this is an incredible moment, and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we have been together seven years. I was over the moon.” Of course, she said yes, and the rest is history.
On their highly anticipated wedding day, the bride wore a stunning gown by British designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, and arrived with Prince Andrew. She looked gorgeous, but the most moving moments were by far the ones where she and Brooksbank interacted. There is so much you can tell about a couple’s relationship dynamic by the way they move with and around each other, and Eugenie and Brooksbank are no exception. To gauge how they were feeling on their wedding day (besides totally psyched to be getting married, obvi), I asked body language expert Blanca Cobb for her take on the newest royal couple. Here’s what she had to say.
