We all recall Eugenie from her famous fascinator at Kate and William's wedding, plus her many other stylish outfits and hats. In addition to being a fashion icon, Eugenie is ninth in line for the throne of England. She doesn't have official royal duties but she's is a philanthropist and sponsors charities including  the Teenage Cancer Trust, the Coronet Theatre, the European School of Osteopathy, the Tate, and alongside her mother, the Elephant Family. She also serves as director of the Anti-Slavery Collective and has spoken to the UN about ending modern slavery.

But what about her fiancé? Here's what you need to know about Jack Brooksbank.

1. 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.

2. Old family

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. In fact, his family tree actually entwines with Eugenie's a bit. The pair is distantly related, reports Sky News, "According to The Daily Telegraph, 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."

3. Foodie

Jack has worked at a number of trendy restaurants over the years. He started his career at Admiral Codrington pub in Chelsea moving to the  Chelsea gastropub Markham Inn. Markham Inn is where he reportedly met Prince Harry, who will soon be his cousin-in-law. He later went to work at Mayfair's Mahiki.

4. Famous boss

Jack's current employer is Casamigos tequila. He's the brand ambassador for the liquor. The company was founded by George Clooney, though he has since sold it. Does that mean George and Amal will be at the wedding next month? Fashion watchers certainly hope so.

5. 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. 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."

6. 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.

7. No title

Jack likely won't get a title when he marries Eugenie. She is currently known as Her Royal Highness, Princess Eugenie of York, but will drop the "of York" after her marriage

8. What's next?

The couple had been living together at  St James's Palace bu in April they moved to Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace. Presumably that's where they'll continue to live after the wedding. Jack has said that his ambition is to start a chain of pubs so perhaps that will be his next project
