Princess Eugenie is engaged to her long term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, according to an official statement shared by Buckingham Palace.

The lovely news were announced by the Duke and Duchess of York, who said their younger daughter and Mr Brooksbank will marry this year.

In the statement, posted on the official Twitter account of Royal Family, they also revealed the couple became engaged earlier this month, in Nicaragua.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s nuptials will be the second royal wedding of 2018, after Harry and Meghan’s big day in May.

The statement read: ‘The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank.

‘Her Royal Highness and Mr Brooksbank became engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month.

‘The wedding will take place in the Autumn of 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, with further details to be announced in due course.’
