We all love a Royal wedding and this year we’ve been treated to two of them! First Harry and Meghan and now Eugenie and Jack. The princess married her long-term boyfriend in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on 12th October. The happy couple have been together for 8 years after meeting at a ski resort in Switzerland. Eugenie will retain her royal title once wed and can also have the option of adopting her husband’s surname.
So, what of the details of the second glitzy royal wedding of the year?
Apparently, Jack Brooksbank did not give Eugenie an official engagement ring at the time of the proposal. He had, however, bought her an oval-cut sapphire ring in readiness for the proposal. The idea was that they worked on the design of an engagement together. A thoughtful gesture that shows how much the engagement meant to the couple. Together, they designed a pink sapphire ring with a halo of diamonds on a gold band with two more diamonds set on the shoulders.

Princess Eugenie is 28 years old and has worked in both New York and London. She worked in New York as a benefit auctions manager before returning to London to be an associate director with Hauser & Wirth art gallery. She has since been promoted to director. She has a 2:1 in English Literature and History of Art from Newcastle University. Her net worth is said to be in the region of £3.6 million.
She is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and the sixth grandchild of the Queen and Prince Philip. She has a grand regal name, the full version of which is Eugenie Victoria Helena.
The Duke and Duchess of York, Eugenie’s parents were divorced when she was six years old, but they had agreed joint custody of both Eugenie and her older sister, Beatrice. Eugenie is currently ninth in line to the throne.
The wedding was a joyous celebration with a service at Windsor Castle before a carriage procession through the town to a lunch hosted by the Queen. The evening reception was held at the York family home at Royal Lodge. The event was broadcast live until the procession had finished with hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
Over 1,000 members of the public were invited to attend in the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the wedding. Those invited were chosen through a public ballot system. Buckingham Palace had received over 10,000 applications from people wanting to experience the wedding celebrations.
The day after the wedding, the partying and celebrations will continue at the Royal Lodge as prepared and planned by an A-list party planning company.
