'I Was Over The Moon': Queen's Granddaughter, Princess Eugenie, Shares Romantic Details Of Lakeside Proposal

Date January 23, 2018

It’s another happy news in the royal family! Queen’s granddaughter Eugenie is going to wed her boyfriend of seven years, Jack Brooksbank, in the fall 2018. There’s a lot of preparation going ahead to make the ceremony magnificent. But now, the lucky princess cannot restrain herself from recounting a super romantic lakeside proposal.


Proposal details

In their BBC interview, the eighth in line to the throne and her beloved shared some sweet details of their vacation and proposal. The Princess of York revealed that she was taken by surprise when Jack got down on one knee because, in spite of their long-term relationship, she didn’t expect it! The couple stopped at a scenic location beside a beautiful lake, against a backdrop of a volcano. Her Royal Highness explained:

I actually said, 'This is an incredible moment', and then he popped the question, which was really surprising, even though we've been together seven years.

Of course, the 27-year-old was "over the moon" and even cried from happiness.

Choice of the ring

During the interview, all eyes were on Eugenie’s stunning pinkish engagement ring, encrusted with small diamonds and a rare padparadscha sapphire. But it turns out Brooksbank proposed without a ring because he knew his bride-to-be just too well.

Of course, the princess wanted to work together on its design. What the two love about this gem is that it changes color depending on the angle. And Jack believes it really reminds him of his future wife:

She changes color and is just so amazing.


Wedding details

The wedding ceremony will take place in the fall at St. George’s Chapel. Yes, it’s the same place Prince Harry and the actress Meghan Markle will tie the knot at this spring.
