Must See 23/01/2018

The Royal family is celebrating another engagement - this time, it's Princess Eugenie tying the knot.

Her boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, a London socialite, dropped a knee in Nicaragua earlier this month, the palace announced on Twitter.

The pair have been dating since 2010 when Eugenie was a student at Newcastle University.

Mr Brooksbank manages the Mahiki nightclub in Kensington, which Business Insider reports is popular with the younger royals. He is also the brand ambassador for Casamigos, a tequila company established by George Clooney.

Princess Eugenie, Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter, is eighth in line to the throne.

The ceremony will be held at St George's Chapel in Autumn - the same venue Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will use for their wedding in May.

The palace says it will announce further details in the coming weeks.
