Another celebration is in order the royal family!
Eugenie, one of the queen’s granddaughters, is eighth in line to the British throne. Her full name being Eugenie Victoria Helena, she was named after Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg and Princess Helena, Queen Victoria’s granddaughter and daughter.
Princess Eugenie began studying at Newcastle University in September 2009. She majored in Art History, English Literature and Politics, finishing her degree in 2012.
Eugenie moved to New York City after graduation to work for the online auction firm Paddle8 as a benefit auctions manager. However, when she moved back to London in July 2015, she landed a job as an associate director at art gallery Hauser & Wirth.
It was announced on 22 January, 2018, on the official social media accounts of the royal family that the Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Eugenie of York is engaged to marry her longtime boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank.
The Duke and Duchess of York, Princess Eugenie’s parents, posted an official statement via Twitter. The statement explains that the couple became engaged in Nicaragua earlier this year. Their wedding is to take place at St.George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in the fall of 2018.
To be exact, Prince Andrew says an October 12 wedding date has been set for his younger daughter, Princess Eugenie. Andrew, the third child of Queen Elizabeth II, announced the date overnight on his official Twitter account.
This also happens to be the same location that Prince Harry, Eugenie’s cousin, has chosen for his own wedding with former actress Meghan Markle on May 2018.
Going with the engagement announcement, the royal family officials also shared the couple’s engagement photo shoot pictures. One of the photo was a close-up of the beautiful engagement ring, which contains a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds.
