Eugenie and Jack: the official photos


Here comes the bride. Princess Eugenie and her husband to be, Jack Brooksbank, have set the seal on their engagement with a series of official photos. The couple smiled for the camera of Jonathan Brady in the Picture Gallery at Buckingham Palace just hours after their happy news was shared with the world. The official announcement of their engagement was made at 10am on Monday January 22nd 2017.




Jonathan Brady's pictures show a couple about as happy as can be. They are a rather elegant set of official engagement snaps, showcasing the joy both clearly feel while adding a sprinkling of regal charm expected for the Queen's granddaughter.  After seven years of a rather low key romance, it's nice to see the pair showing the world just how loved up they really are on this very special day for them. 



We also get a look at Eugenie's ring. It features a pale red stone surrounded by diamonds, rather like the design chosen by her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York and her aunt, Diana. Princess of Wales. But the stone at the centre is rather unique. That's a padparadscha sapphire sparkling on Eugenie's finger - a rare stone, found mostly in Sri Lanka and usually a pale red to dark pink colour.





The couple will marry at St. George's Chapel, Windsor in the autumn with October being hot favourite for the wedding date at the moment. In the meantime, let's keep smiling with this very happy couple and send them all the luck in the world. Congratulations!
