The date for the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank has just been announced.
The couple will tie the knot of Friday 12th October at St George’s Chapel, in the lower ward of Windsor Castle.
A tweet from The Duke of York’s account confirmed the exact date for Princess Eugenie’s wedding, though October was thought to be the most likely month, since September is rather busy in the royal diary.
Mr Brooksbank’s grandmother reportedly told journalists that he and Eugenie had wanted to marry in September, but have had to push it back because of family availability.
The marriage of Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank will take place on 12th October 2018.
As previously announced, the wedding will take place at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Princess Eugenie, 27, became engaged to Jack, 31, in January, when they were holidaying in Nicargua after almost eight eight years together. He popped the question without a ring, buying one on their return and tweaking it to the Princess’ taste. The ring is made of a salmon-pink sapphire, surrounded by diamonds.
The couple made the news public just two weeks ago, after the pair attended church with The Queen near Sandringham.
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were amongst the handful of people to know before the announcement, with Jack asking The Duke of York for permission beforehand.
