Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank Announce Their Wedding Date
We were already planning the party we’ll be throwing to watch Meghan Markle marry Prince Harry on Saturday, May 19, 2018, and now we’re gearing up for another get-together with our royal-loving besties to see Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding.
Circle October 12, 2018, on your calendars, because according to the Duke of York’s Twitter account, that’s the day his youngest daughter will walk down the aisle. The ceremony will take place in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle — the very same place where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will exchange vows this spring.
Princess Eugenie — Queen Elizabeth II’s sixth grandchild and Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew’s second daughter — announced her engagement to her longtime love in late January. The couple met while the princess was studying at Newcastle University and have now been together for seven years.
When the royal family was ready to let the world in on the happy news, the Duchess of York took to Twitter to share her feelings about the engagement, saying (over the course of a few tweets that included some adorable pics of the pair), “Total joy! They float with laughter and love … although a boat helps! I always say that the river flows well to its destiny because of the guidance of a solid rock.”
We, like Fergie, can’t wait until the wedding rolls around next fall.
