Just because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding is in our rearview, doesn’t mean we’re done geeking out over royal weddings. We have another one to look forward to,when Princess Eugenie of York marries her longtime boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank. The couple is set to be married on October 12 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle — the same venue where Harry and Meghan exchanged vows in May. But unlike Harry and Meghan, who had wall-to-wall press coverage leading up to their wedding, you may not be as familiar with Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s relationship timeline. But don’t worry, I got you covered.
First, some quick background on the soon-to-be bride and groom. Eugenie is the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York (Queen Elizabeth's third child) and Sarah Ferguson (aka, the original Fergie), making her ninth in line to the British throne behind her older sister, Princess Beatrice of York. However, she is not a “working royal,” which means, unlike Meghan and Kate Middleton, she isn't required to attend royal events in any official capacity.Instead she has a civilian career working for a London art gallery.
Before settling down with Brooksbank, she was known as a bit of a “party princess” who was regularly spotted at raves. An appreciation for partying may be one of the things that drew her toBrooksbank, who was the manager of a Mahiki, a hot spot frequented by both Harry and Eugenie's sister, Beatrice.He is now the the UK ambassador for Casamigos, George Clooney and Randy Gerber’s tequila brand. So now that you know who they are, here’s everything you need to know about their relationship— so that you can get just as excited about their upcoming wedding as I am.
