Princess Eugenie’s fiancé Jack is NOT a commoner unseen photos reveal ahead of the wedding

Princess Eugenie’s husband-to-be Jack Brooksbank is not a commoner, newly unearthed photos have revealed.

A selection of stunning historic pictures prove Mr Brooksbank’s family have royal links, ahead of his marriage to Eugenie, meaning the Princess is not marrying a commoner.

The images, found by Australian historian Michael Reed from Hallam College, Melbourne, show members of Mr Brooksbank’s family with royals including the Queen.

In one image, the Queen is seen with Mr Brooksbank’s great-uncle, Lord Hamilton of Dalzell, on a visit to Kingston upon Thames in 1961.

The picture shows the pair walking next to each other, at a time when the Queen would have been in her mid-thirties.

Another photo shows King Edward VII with Mr Brooksbank’s grandmother Celia Brooksbank’s great-grandfather Lord Burnham – Edward Levy-Lawson, 1st Baron Burnham – taken at Hall Barn, Eugenie’s fiancé’s ancestral seat.

And another extraordinary image shows the pair with a group shooting at Hall Barn in Buckinghamshire.

Mr Brooksbank’s grandmother, who lived at the family’s residence, is also pictured.

And another photo is of Mr Brooksbank’s grandmother’s father, Sir Jack Coke, who was a Gentlemen Usher to King George VI, the Queen’s father.

The pictures fly in the face of claims that Mr Brooksbank, a wine merchant, is a commoner.

Historian Mr Reed said: “These photos prove – as do photos I unearthed of Kate Middleton’s aristocratic paternal family – that the Brooksbank family are not really commoners – they all move in the same circles as the royals and have done so for many years!”

It comes as the countdown to Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank’s wedding on Friday has started.

The royal couple will get married at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Members of the Royal Family, including the Queen, are expected to attend the special day.

Following the service, Eugenie – who is ninth in line to the throne – and Mr Brooksbank will take a carriage ride through Windsor.
