In a bumper year for royal celebrations, their wedding will follow that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel on May 19. The announcement came from Buckingham Palace on Monday, Jan. 22, 2018.

The ring has only just been completed, as Eugenie told Matt Baker that she has been wearing the ring "literally less than 24 hours, first time was last night and it feels very unusual to have this on my finger".

Yes, that's right, he picked a magic ring, because it reminds him of his colourful future wife.

As well as showing off the fantastic ring, the loved-up pair described the "perfect" engagement, where Jack got down on one knee in Nicaragua, with a volcano as the backdrop. For the photos, Eugenie wore a black and red floral printed Erdem dress with Jimmy Choo shoes. She is also the patron of several charities.

"It is a Padparadscha sapphire surrounded by 10 brilliant cut diamonds and two pear cut diamonds to give and edge to the standard classic cluster". He explained that he "didn't want to do anything until Eugenie had signed off on it", but he had selected a padparadscha sapphire stone ahead of to the proposal.

Time will tell how involved Meghan Markle will be in Princess Eugenie's wedding. That ring is of course another handsome sapphire surrounded by diamonds.

Under the royal family's rules, she will keep her royal title as Princess Eugenie Victoria Helena of York when she marries 31-year-old Brooksbank and will have the option to take his surname.

New bulletins were full of the announcement as the country shared their excitement over the second royal wedding of the year. Another granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, Zara Tindall, is expecting a baby in 2018 as well.

The couple, who were introduced through friends during a ski trip in 2010, will Wednesday in the fall at St George's Chapel in Windsor, the same venue where Harry and Megs will tie the knot.

We also know where the couple will be saying their vows.

Mr Brooksbank is the manager of Mayfair society nightclub Mahiki, and is a friend of Prince Harry's.

She may end up running into one of Prince Harry's exes.

Eugenie's father, the Duke of York, 57, said he was "thrilled" during a visit to King's Lynn, Norfolk.

Prime Minister Theresa May congratulated the couple and said she offered her "very best wishes". Her Majesty recently recalled the momentous day in a documentary for the BBC entitled The Coronation, in which she spoke about the "horribly uncomfortable" golden carriage that took her from Westminster Abbey back to Buckingham Palace.

"We are completely over the moon and are very excited for them both".
