There’s not long to go until we’re treated to another royal wedding as Princess Eugenie prepares to tie the knot with lover Jack Brooksbank in the same venue where almost two billion people watched the Duke and Duchess of Sussex get married in May.
The couple will say their vows in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, on October 12 and mother of the bride Sarah, Duchess of York, can’t wait for her daughter to marry Brooksbank as she revealed they have a shared passion.
Speaking to presenter Alex Jones on BBC One’s The One Show, Fergie revealed her love for her future son in law and confessed it’s all down to a shared liking for tequila.
Asked what type of mother in law she’ll be, the Daily Star reports she said: “The best – the good news is Jack also works as the European Manager for Casamigos Tequila, so I am perfect.”
Big gratitude to @BBCTheOneShow for having @TomDannatt and I to talk about our charity @streetchilduk and how we can help some of the 121 million children in the world who don’t have the chance of an education @mrmichaelball @MissAlexjones @ChildrenCrisis #bbc pic.twitter.com/Dn0cUO3hfT

The Duchess, 58, also revealed that the York’s have a laugh at Brooksbank’s expense as the 32-year-old shares a name with the family’s pet dog, Jack.
“Andrew is brilliant because he says ‘Jack! Get off that chair!’ – so son-in-law Jack jumps up going ‘ahhhh god – what have I done now?'” she added.
“The thing about Andrew and I is that we go with our hearts, we go with family unity – we really believe in that. You can see that – the York Family unity and it is all about just seeing the light in life and Jack is an amazing bringer of light, and he brings joy.
“I just say to Jack always just stay yourself, and I say that to anybody – I keep saying it to myself – sitting here is terrifying seeing you two on the BBC.”
Eugenie, 28, is the youngest daughter of Sarah and Prince Andrew and sister of Princess Beatrice, 29. She has been in a relationship with Brooksbank for seven years after they met in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier.
And it sounds like the Duchess of York, who retained her title when she divorced Prince Andrew in 1996 after 10 years of marriage, as she told Jones that she’d made an “excellent grandmother”.
She added: “I used to write children’s books, and I am a child, I haven’t grown up.”
