2799

PRINCESS EUGENIE delivered a heartbreaking confession on her engagement ring, ahead of her spectacular royal wedding in 2018.

The Princess York wed Jack Brooksbank two years ago in what was a stunning year for the Royal Family, who also celebrated Prince Harry’s union with former actress Meghan Markle. Parties were held across the nation to coincide with both marriages, and created an iconic year for the Firm, which placed them firmly back into the global spotlight. But before her marriage, Eugenie opened up on the ring she was given by Jack, who got down on one knee while they were on holiday in Nicaragua.

She explained to Vogue in 2018 that the ring contains an oval cut Padparadscha sapphire, which is surrounded by diamonds.

It is set on a yellow gold band and is reminiscent of the ring her father Prince Andrew gave to her mother Sarah Ferguson.

She said of the ring: “It’s very special.

“Jack found the sapphire and thought it looked like me because it changes colour and he thought that that was part of my character, which is quite sweet.”

In January of that year, Eugenie and Jack discussed their plans for the wedding ahead of their union by appearing on the BBC’s ‘The One Show’.

Discussing a range of topics, including how he proposed to Eugenie, Jack explained exactly what the marriage meant to him.

He said: “It’s very special to be a part of your family now.

“I love Eugenie so much and we’re over the moon for what is to come.

“It’s so exciting now to be telling friends and family, and to be thinking about spending a lifetime together.”

She told the show that she and Jack were by a “beautiful lake in an incredible moment” before he popped the question.

Eugenie added: “It was really surprising even though we’ve been together for seven years.

“I was crying. We couldn’t be happier, because we knew it was going to end up this way.”

But despite the excitement prior to the marriage, Eugenie admitted to having nerves as she wanted the wedding “to be perfect”.

Ahead of the marriage in another Vogue interview, she was “not stressed at all” about the marriage yet was feeling pressure to put on a brilliant day for relatives and royal fans.

She said the experience was “nerve wracking because you want it to be perfect but then you realise that you’re going to be with the person forever so nothing else really matters”.

She added: “There’s a lovely quote from Maya Angelou, which I’m paraphrasing, that ‘No one will remember what you said but they’ll remember how you made them feel.’

“It’s about how we feel, but also how our family and friends feel.

“I want it to be beautiful and fun and to bring out our personalities as much as possible.”
