  • Britain's Princess Eugenie to Marry Boyfriend this Year

Princess Eugenie is engaged to longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, Buckingham Palace announced in a statement Monday, with the pair set to Wednesday in the fall.

The couple who have been together for seven years recalled first meeting at the Swiss resort near Verbier.

With a wedding and two royal baby already coming up, Queen Elizabeth now has another reason to celebrate in 2018 after her granddaughter Princess Eugenie announced she's engaged.

The cousin of Prince Harry and Prince William has been dating Brooksbank, the former manager of London hotspot Mahiki, for several years.

Talking to BBC's The One Show, Princess Eugenie recalled how earlier this month, while in front of a volcano as the sun was setting in Nicaragua, Brooksbank went down on one knee and popped the question.

Prime Minister Theresa May congratulated the couple and said she offered her "very best wishes".

The future spouses will say "I do" at the same location where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot in May. Featuring a ribbon detailing atop a sharp pointed shoe, the sultry stilettos added a little extra something to her outfit for the special occasion. She's the second child of Andrew and Fergie.


Along with the engagement announcement, royal family officials also shared pictures from the couple's engagement photo shoot, taken earlier today.

The sparkler contains a padparadscha sapphire - the rarest of all sapphires - surrounded by a halo of diamonds.

Eugenie said: "We met when I was 20 and Jack was 24 and fell in love". "A total embrace of goodness and joy".

Mr Brooksbank's parents, Nicola and George Brooksbank, said they were "completely over the moon" and "very excited" for the couple. Now, he's an ambassador for Casamigos, the tequila company owned by George Clooney, Rande Gerber (Cindy Crawford's husband) and Mike Meldman.

Eugenie is the eighth in line to the throne.

She is not a full-time member of the royal household, and works as an assistant director at a London art gallery.

Mr Brooksbank's parents said in a short statement: "We could not be more delighted with the news of the engagement".
