History of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank
The now 32-year-old and Brooksbank first met in 2010 when they were both on a ski trip in Verbier, Switzerland. Although they haven’t said much about their relationship as they like to keep their personal life quiet, Eugenie did open up during their engagement interview saying it was “love at first sight.”
“We met when I was 20, he was 24,” she said. “[We] fell in love. We have the same passions and drive for life.”
Seven years after they met Brooksbank popped the question and Eugenie admits she was still surprised even though they had been together for quite some time.
“The lake was so beautiful. The light was just a special light I had never seen. I actually said, ‘This is an incredible moment,’ and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we have been together seven years,” she said.
“I was over the moon. [It was a] complete surprise. But it was the perfect moment, we couldn’t be happier.”
The happy pair ended up getting married at Buckingham Palace on October 12, 2018 and have since grown as a couple and a family.
