From Prince Charles and Princess Diana to Prince William and Duchess Catherine, no doubt you’ve followed them, loved them and tuned in for the weddings.

But there could be another royal engagement on the way, with rumours swirling about Princess Eugenie.

The daughter of Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, is reportedly planning become engaged to boyfriend Jack Brooksbank.

The pair have been dating since they met in Switzerland six years ago and are said to be ‘very serious’ about their relationship.

You might be wondering what’s making people think that means they’re planning on getting engaged.

Well, the Daily Mail is reporting that Princess Eugenie and Jack were both invited by the Queen to Prince Harry’s 32nd birthday party at Balmoral Castle.

So what’s the big deal about that?

Apparently, royal insiders are describing it as a ‘rite of passage’.

“There is no way he would be invited to stay with the Queen unless he was being welcomed into the royal fold and the bosom of the family,” one insider was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

The rumours flying around include that the pair will become engaged by the end of the year and possibly marry next year, and that they will lived in Kensington Palace.

Some believe the pair may ask for the Queen’s blessing for an engagement whilst at Balmoral Castle.

One of Jack’s friends was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying Jack was “somewhat apprehensive” about going Balmoral.

So could the rumours actually be true?

Well, the royal family is keeping tight-lipped.

Buckingham Palace has declined to comment, although a spokesman for Sarah Ferguson denied the claim stating that it was “absolutely not true”.

  1. My apologies to any royalists out there – but, seriously, who cares?? Wills, Kate & Harry – even the Queen? Fine – the rest of them, not for me I’m afraid.

  2. If I had been an item with my boyfriend for 6 years, I would want to know when he was going to put a ring on my finger!

  3. She may be a granddaughter of the queen but she is now so far down the scale of being an interesting royal, that what she does is hardly interesting. I think someone commented that she is not the most attractive girl either. She needs to get on with her life and work for a living.

  4. Born and bred in UK but she, is as previously remarked way down on the list and I agree couldn’t care less both sisters are spoilt and think they are more important than they are .These do nothing within the royal family and no they certainly are not the most attractive girls so let them go about their business and we will be happy not to have to know what they do

  5. What’s being attractively or unattractive got to do with anything? We’re not all stunningly beautiful like you critical people!! Some people can be very nasty! I wish Eugenie well – and besides, I think she is attractive!

  6. She does not ask for this press it just comes with her birth. Like any decent person hearing someone is too be married I just say all the best.

  7. The Princesses can’t help their looks, it’s what is inside that counts, but they do scrub up pretty well anyway.

  8. Sorry if I expressed my honest and personal opinion, but had Diana, Kate and Mary of Denmark been so lacking in looks, deportment, style and grace, I doubt they would have had the retinue of photographers and paparazzi following them.

  9. If you haven’t got anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all. !

    Good luck to both of them. 😊

  10. Eugenie is a beautiful, intelligent professional whom always presents herself well and has great moral character.
