Are you ready for another royal wedding?
No, not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (at least not yet) but speculation that Princess Eugenie—the younger daughter of Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York—may be engaged was fuelled on Thursday morning after she was photographed leaving a London nightclub with a ring on her engagement finger.
A spokesperson for Prince Andrew told the Daily Beast this morning that they would be making no comment on Eugenie’s private life.
However the 26-year-old royal clearly appeared to be wearing a ring on her engagement finger as she left private members' club LouLou's with boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, 30, late last night.
The Princess grinned broadly as she left the club, hand-in-hand with her boyfriend of six years.
Both Eugenie and Jack have denied rumours that they're getting set to wed after the rumour mill went into overdrive when Eugenie took nightclub manager Mr Brooksbank to Balmoral to meet her grandmother.
Eugenie is shortly due to move to Kensington Palace—she is taking over Ivy Cottage, a substantial three-bedroom home adjacent to Harry’s house, Nottingham Cottage.
Harry (plus, hopefully, a spouse) will be first in line to get a proper apartment in the building, but the York girls clearly have support from the Cambridges.
Jack Brooksbank is universally loved by the family, unlike Bea’s ex, Dave Clark.
The photos emerged following reports that Prince Andrew is seeking to improve the official status of his daughters over fears any children they have would be 'commoners'.
Prince Andrew wants the Queen to guarantee that their future husbands will be made Earls, “Otherwise his daughters' children will be commoners, defined as one of the ordinary or common people, as opposed to the aristocracy or to royalty,” a source told the Mail.
