Another royal wedding has been set for the year! Princess Eugenie, daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York. She is set to marry her long-term boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank, in autumn 2018.

Jack was a waiter before he met the Princess

Jack is a Brand Ambassador of Casamigos tequila, which was founded by actor George Clooney, and worked in bars and pubs, including the celebrity hotspot Mahiki, for several years.

Speaking about his career in hospitality, he revealed in an interview:

I want to create a chain of pubs. It has been my dream since I was 18. I have fond memories of Sunday roasts in pubs with log fires, and it's something I want to recreate.

Jack's parents are Nicola and George; they work as a company director and a chartered accountant respectively. He is also a descendant of the Brooksbank baronets, and he and Eugenie are blood relatives, albeit very, very distant.

The Duchess of York is the great great granddaughter of Lady Julia Coke, who is the daughter of Jack's great great grandfather, Thomas Coke.

They dated for seven years

The pair first met while skiing at the royal hotspot Verbier in Switzerland back in 2010, and were introduced by mutual friends. They returned to the resort for a ski holiday with his future father-in-law, Prince Andrew, in January 2015.

Jack gets along with Eugenie's parents very well, and Sarah Ferguson Instagrammed a snap of them both following their announcement and wrote:

Total joy. They float with laughter and love... Although a boat helps!

Jack has been seen attending high-profile events, including Royal Ascot, with Princess Eugenie since 2011. The club manager also reportedly gets on very well with the Duke and Duchess of York.

Jack and Eugenie visited the Queen in Balmoral together for Prince Harry's 32nd birthday in 2016, sparking rumors that they had asked Her Majesty for her marriage blessing.

Wedding bells ringing soon

They will tie the knot on Friday 12, October 2018. The date confirmation came after Eugenie's mother, the Duchess of York, penned a heartfelt message to her daughter and her new fiancé, printed exclusively in HELLO! Magazine. Sarah wrote:

Dearest Eugenie and Jack The Man when you walk into a room, you bring smiles to the faces of all who meet you. You both exude kindness, love, and goodness. You have beautiful manners and go the extra mile to all who meet you. I was so proud of your pure love and joy shining through.

The wedding will take place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor, a few months after the wedding of her cousin Prince Harry, making it the second royal wedding at the chapel this year.

The venue was previously the site for the weddings of her uncle, the Earl of Wessex, and her cousin Peter Phillips, as well as the blessing for the marriage of her uncle, the Prince of Wales, and Camilla Parker Bowles.

It's turning to be an exciting year for the royal family: a baby and two weddings!
