He's a commoner.

Jack isn't a royal himself. His mother is an accountant and his father is director of a company. He went to the Stowe school in Buckinghamshire, England, but decided not to go on to university, choosing to go right into the hospitality field instead.

His distant relatives, however, come from royalty.

While Jack and his immediate family don't have any titles to their names, there is royalty in his distant family. He is descended from the Brooksbank baronets, and his family tree actually intertwines with Eugenie's a bit. "The Duchess of York is the great-great granddaughter of Lady Julia Coke, who is the daughter of Mr Brooksbank's great-great grandfather, Thomas Coke," one report stated

It was love at first sight.

Eugenie met Jack in 2010 while she was on a ski trip in Switzerland. Jack called the meeting love at first sight and they've been together ever since. He proposed to Eugenie lakeside in Nicaragua, dropping to one knee to ask for her hand in marriage. Eugenie described the moment, saying, "The lake was so beautiful. The lake had a special light I’d never seen. I actually said 'this is an incredible moment', and then he popped the question. I was over the moon, crying."

He proposed without a ring.

Jack didn't present a ring when he proposed, though he had already purchased the pink sapphire that would be the centerpiece. He and Eugenie later collaborated to design the ring.

They got married in 2018.
