Prince Harry won't be the only British royal to tie the knot this year—and he'll share not just a calendar year but a wedding venue with his cousin. Princess Eugenie, 27, will marry longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank this fall, per a Monday statement from Buckingham Palace. Eugenie is the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York, that is, Queen Elizabeth II's son Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson. The BBC reports the princess will retain her title upon marrying and may choose to take Brooksbank's name if she wishes; she is currently eighth in line to the throne.
USA Today reports the couple have been together for six years after meeting via friends while on a ski holiday in Verbier, Switzerland. The two got engaged in Nicaragua in January and will wed at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. The Daily Beast notes the palace seemingly "[broke] with tradition" in pairing the announcement with a casual photo of the couple that looks as if it was taken using a cellphone in a bar.
