Stunning ring

To mark their engagement, the couple met with the press and photographers. The princess looked gorgeous in a short dress with a floral print. But, of course, all eyes were on the dazzling ring that Jack gave to her. And it’s no surprise!

The princess will retain her royal title after marriage, but she will also have an opportunity to take her hubby's last name if desired. The wedding will take place only in fall and, judging by the insider’s information, will be quite magnificent. The pair will tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel – the same venue where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will say "I do."
