It's been almost three weeks since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle walked down the aisle together for their splendid Royal Wedding. You know what that means, right? Yep, it's time for another Royal Wedding! This time, it's the royal nuptials of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. The loving young couple is preparing for her own very big day on October 12th, so plan accordingly! Save those Royal Wedding decorations you left around the house, and get your affairs in order. It's time to get back into preparation mode again, because Royal Wedding season isn't over yet. In fact, it's just getting heating up.
As reported by E! News, Princess Eugenie is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, which makes her the ninth person in line to the throne. She's preparing to marry her boyfriend of several years, Jack Brooksbank. The couple aged 32 and 28, respectively, were first acquainted by mutual friends. During a skiing trip in Switzerland roughly eight years prior, they met at ages 24 and 20, and they've stayed together even through a long-distance relationship, when the princess herself moved to New York City for work purposes. Brooksbank popped the question while the soon-to-be royal couple were vacationing in Nicaragua. We're told the diamond ring he used to pop the question was something special, which it had to be. It's not every day that you ask a princess to be your wife, you know.
Preparations are still coming together for the lovely couple, but we're told a venue is already set in place. It's once again set to happen inside St. George's Chapel, located within the Windsor Castle. That's, of course, the same place where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry said "I do" to one another last month. The guest list is still being put together, meanwhile, but there's good reason to believe most of the familiar royal members will make an appearance, including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex themselves. Of course, that's not yet confirmed, and the wedding is still many months away. But it's quite likely.
Additionally, it's worth noting that, unlike Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's recent wedding, Queen Elizabeth doesn't have to grant permission for this young couple to wed. The reasoning: Princess Eugenie is not considered a "working royal," which means she doesn't have the obligation to attend official engagements. Therefore, she's free to get hitched to her boyfriend of many years without the Queen looking over her shoulder. In a way, that must feel like a major relief, right? It doesn't make the ceremony quite as glamorous, but it does allow them a little more freedom than Markle and Harry.
In any case, congratulations to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank! We'll keep you posted on the details surrounding their forthcoming marriage.
