Princess Eugenie engaged

GETTY Princess Eugenie has confirmed she is engaged

Unlike Harry and Meghan's ceremony, however, it's unlikely that Eugenie's wedding will be televised-the princess isn't a full-time working royal and has a job in the art world.

The pair are set to marry at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in August of this year.

Buckingham Palace announced the engagement of Princess Eugenie and boyfriend Jack Brooksbank on Monday.

And the affection is clear with Eugenie's mum, Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson, taking to Instagram straight after the announcement to share photos from her personal album of the couple.

"The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank", Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

The couple posed for official portraits at Buckingham Palace earlier today, showing off Eugenie's massive pink sapphire ring. Prince Harry and his American fiancee Meghan Markle will marry at the same chapel in May.

Eugenie, 27, met Brooksbank, the 31-year-old manager of the nightclub Mahiki, while skiing in Verbier, Switzerland in 2010, having been introduced by mutual friends. Eugenie was still at Newcastle University at that time.

Jack now manages the Mayfair club Mahik.

The images also give royal watchers the first glimpse of the Princess's ring, which feature diamonds with a coloured centre stone. Brooksbank attended Pippa Middleton's wedding on May 20 and the Royal Ascot in June. A rep for Buckingham Palace confirmed that the twosome will Wednesday in the fall.
