Princess Eugenie announces engagement
Princess Eugenie, the eighth in line to the British throne, will marry Jack Brooksbank in the fall at Windsor Castle.

2018 is shaping up to be quite the year for fans of royal weddings.

The British royal family announced on Monday that Princess Eugenie, who is eighth in line to the throne, will be married to Jack Brooksbank in the fall.

The couple got engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month. The ceremony will take place in St. George's Chapel, the same chapel where her cousin, Prince Harry, will wed Meghan Markle this spring.

Princess Eugenie, 27, is the second child of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Duke and Duchess of York. She studied English literature, history of art and politics at Newcastle University, graduating in 2012.

Eugenie works at an art gallery, in addition to her involvement with many charities. She is a patron of Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, the Elephant Family and Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital's Redevelopment Appeal, among others.
