The couple will marry in Autumn 2018, according to the palace’s official statement, at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle – the same venue that Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle in May this year.
Brooksbank, 31, has been described by UK society magazine Tatler as “the king of the London club scene.” He is the manager of the Kensington branch of the Mahiki nightclub, a venue popular with the younger generation of the royal family.
He also helps promote Casamigos Tequila, the alcohol brand set up by George Clooney, as a “brand ambassador.”
Brooksbank and Eugenie have been together for more than seven years. They started dating in 2010, while Eugenie was still a student at Newcastle University, where she studied English literature, art history, and politics.
