Princess Eugenie is the 27-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and the flame-haired Duchess of York, Sarah 'Fergie' Ferguson, and has been dating Jack Brooksbank for seven years.

According to the BBC, Brooksbank popped the question on a recent trip to Nicaragua with Princess Eugenie telling the BBC, "...she cried and was over the moon" when her beau, " down on one knee," and proposed just as the sun was setting over a stunning lake.

Eugenie said, "The lake was so beautiful. The light was just a special light I had never seen. I actually said this is an incredible moment, and then he popped the question, which was surprising really even though we have been together seven years."

Princess Eugenie is eighth in line to the throne and will retain her royal title, 'Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York', when she marries former nightclub manager Brooksbank in the northern hemisphere fall (our spring) this year. Making this the second royal wedding for 2018 and surely sending milliners around the UK into overdrive to produce wedding appropriate hats for the double royal nuptials.

The wedding will be held at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, the same storied venue Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will wed at on May 19 this year.

As for the important details like the ring, snaps of the happy couple were taken in the Picture Gallery at Buckingham Palace after the announcement with Princess Eugenie proudly showing off her striking ring featuring a rare pink padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds.
