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

Jack Brooksbank is a foodie.

Jack has worked at a number of restaurants over the years.

He started his career at Admiral Codrington pub in Chelsea, then moved to the Chelsea gastropub Markham Inn. The Markham Inn is where he reportedly met Prince Harry, who is now his cousin-in-law. He later went to work at Mayfair's Mahiki.

What does Jack Brooksbank do for a living?

Currently, Jack Brooksbank is a wine merchant and brand ambassador. 

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.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank got married at St. George's Chapel in 2018 — the same place Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot! 

Princess Eugenie gave birth to the couple's first child on Feb. 9.

A statement from the palace reads:


"Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 8: 55 a.m. at The Portland Hospital. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Mr. and Mrs. George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news.

Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."

Eugenie took to Instagram to share an adorable picture of her new bundle of joy, and fans couldn't get enough of the little cutie.

"Congrats mom and dad!" one fan wrote, while another said, "Congrats to you both on your little boy."

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's new baby boy is first grandchild for Eugenie's parents, and the ninth great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.


Congrats to the happy couple!
