Princess Beatrice may be the next one set to walk down the aisle, but Princess Eugenie is still basking in the glory of her own special day.
The 29-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson tied the knot with businessman Jack Brooksbank on October 12, 2018, at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. The wedding took place just five months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s own royal wedding at the same location.
Eugenie marked her first year of marriage by sharing some behind-the-scenes moments from her special day in a video. The princess is the only member of the royal family to have her own personal Instagram account, which is where she shared it.
“This was the greatest day of my life…forever and always! Happy one year anniversary, my Jack!!” she captioned the sweet video. As is typical with the royal family, there are already rumors of what’s next for Eugenie and Jack, although they’ve yet to comment.
Princess Eugenie is celebrating her first year of marriage in a special way. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since we saw the princess marry the man of her dreams, Jack Brooksbank, in a splendid royal wedding.
Eugenie marked her first anniversary with a sweet video, sharing behind-the-scenes looks at her special day with her 1 million Instagram followers. The video showcases some beautiful details from the day.
In the background of the video, you can also hear Eugenie and Jack reciting their vows, which is a super-romantic touch. The couple seems so in love as the scenes play out from their beautiful ceremony and the moments after.
We also get to see some cool details up close, like the detail work on the custom gown by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. We also see the breathtaking Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara that she borrowed from the Queen.
“This was the greatest day of my life…forever and always!” the 29-year-old princess wrote. “Happy one year anniversary, my Jack!!” It’s clear the couple enjoyed a lovely first year of marriage together.
Eugenie has done a lot of looking back on her wedding day over the past year. It’s lovely seeing her genuine enthusiasm for her new marriage and knowing that she truly had the day she dreamed of her whole life.
There were a lot of special moments in their first year together. Jack joined the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the first time at Trooping the Colour celebrations for Queen Elizabeth.
Jack also joined Eugenie and her father, Prince Andrew, on his first royal engagement in March. The three opened a new wing of at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, where Eugenie had surgery for her scoliosis as a child.
Many people are wondering what’s next for Jack and Eugenie. The couple isn’t required to do many royal engagements, as Eugenie is 10th in the line of succession. Baby rumors have started to follow the couple recently.
A recent Mail on Sunday article discussing sister Beatrice’s desire for a low-key wedding makes mention of Eugenie’s possible desire for a baby. “Whispers reach me that, almost a year after their wedding, Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank are ready to start a family but haven’t talked about it because of a genuine wish not to upstage Bea,” wrote reporter Charlotte Griffiths.
Of course, Eugenie is sure to be a big part of Beatrice’s special day next year, no matter how small of a wedding she has. It makes sense that Eugenie would want to allow her to enjoy her day without taking any of the attention from her.
Interestingly enough, British bookies believe Eugenie will have a baby on the way in 2020. They think that Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton will also grow their families. The odds for three royal babies have recently gone up to 5/1.
Jack is four years older than Eugenie, which also leads many people to believe that he might be pushing to have a family sooner than later. Of course, the couple has plenty of time to make that decision.
Whatever Eugenie and Jack do decide is next, the couple will still be looking back on their beautiful wedding day with the fondest of memories. Congratulations to Eugenie and Jack on this special milestone!
