We heard the announcement, we saw the still photos, and we gasped at the gorgeous ring. Now, let’s get to know the lucky fellow who won the heart of Princess Eugenie.
On January 22, shortly after their engagement was announced, Princess Eugenie and her new fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, spoke to the world about the excitement surrounding their bombshell news.
Matt Baker of Britain’s “The One Show” was the lucky journalist who did the honors. All smiles and nervous laughter, the couple delighted their interviewer with the tale of their romantic journey.
It seems that only The Queen and Prince Philip, and immediate family members were told of the upcoming nuptials in advance of the official announcement. In fact, Eugenie had worn the ring for only a short 24 hours prior to the T.V. appearance.
Eugenie gets the opportunity to speak first. “This is Jack,” the Princess begins. “We met when I was 20 and he was 24. We have the same passions and drive for life.” Smiling at her fiancé, she continues, ”We’re so glad we get to share this moment with everyone and you get to meet Jack.”
Next is Jack’s turn, revealing that they met skiing and that “It was love at first sight!” He also admits to having gotten down on one knee when proposing and that he sought Eugenie’s approval of the stone before having the ring made. So exciting!!
It's plain to see that this couple is not only madly in love, but they also respect one another and truly enjoy each other's company. Looks as though they have all the makings of a successful, long-lasting marriage, and we wish them all the best!!
