It will be a busy year for royal weddings: Princess Eugenie is engaged to be married later this year, several months after her cousin Prince Harry’s nuptials.
Eugenie, the daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, will marry Jack Brooksbank in the fall, Buckingham Palace said Monday.
The palace said that the wedding will take place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor. Prince Harry and his American fiancee Meghan Markle will marry at the same chapel in May.
The 27-year-old Eugenie was the second child born to Andrew and Ferguson. Ferguson tweeted: “Total joy!!” to mark the engagement and said the couple “float with laughter and love.”
Andrew said he was “thrilled” with the announcement.
“Jack is an absolutely outstanding young man and Eugenie and he have got to know each other over a number of years, and I’m really thrilled for them,” the prince said.
