Princess Eugenie wedding: Bride and groom GUSH over each other in pre-wedding interview
Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank revealed new information about their romance in the interview with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford from ITV’s This Morning.
Asked by Mr Holmes to describe his partner in three words, Mr Brooksbank said: “She’s this bright shining light.”
And Eugenie replied by calling her husband-to-be “humble and generous”.
The bride said: “Jack’s the kind of guy, you know when you’re lost at a party and you can’t find anyone to talk to, and you start panicking and you need help? He’ll walk in and make everyone feel so special.
“He’ll scoop you up and talk to you and make you feel a million dollars…you’re so humble and generous. So humble and generous – that’s two words”
The pair revealed that they were feeling nervous ahead of their royal wedding.
Eugenie – who is ninth in line to the throne – said: “It’s definitely creeping up on us now, the nerves.”
Speaking about walking down the aisle, Eugenie said: “It’s nerve-wracking and a bit scary and all the things that come with getting married, but at the end of the day you get to marry the person you love.”
Addressing Mr Brooksbank, she added: “And you’re going to be at the end of the aisle, and I’m going to be running towards you!”
The groom denied that Eugenie has been a “bridezilla” during the wedding preparations.
He said: “Eugenie has been amazing. She’s been incredible, she has the ability to do a million things at once in her brain, including working as well as organising everything to do with the wedding.”
And the royal couple discussed the moment they first met on a skiing holiday in Verbier, Switzerland, in 2010.
Eugenie admitted she was “all butterflies and nervous” when Mr Brooksbank said hello to her.
The bride said: “I thought, ‘what a silly hat!’ and I thought, ‘whose that?’ and then you came over and shook my hand and I was all butterflies and nervous.”
The Princess revealed she rang her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, to tell her all about the first meeting.
She said: “I think I rang my mum that night and said ‘I’ve met this guy Jack’… and that was it I think about how it started.
“I remember being like ‘I really, really like this guy, I really want him to like me too’ and then you gave me this huge windscreen wiper wave and that was it, right, he likes me.”
Eugenie was also full of praise for her sister, Princess Beatrice, who will be her maid of honour.
Eugenie said that her “big sissy” was someone “I’ve looked up to her whole life” and that she’s the biggest supporter of “team Eug and Jack”.
The interview airs today on This Morning At The Royal Wedding at 9.25am on ITV.
