Princess Eugenie won't be taking a walk down the aisle anytime soon, says mom Sarah Ferguson. And despite her daughter's long-term relationship with boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, the royal laughed off reports that Eugenie is engaged.
When asked by People whether there was any truth to the speculation that the couple is engaged, the 57-year-old replied with a laugh and a simple "no."
Sarah's youngest daughter, Eugenie, 26, and boyfriend Jack, 29, have been an item for six years. Engagement speculation began back in September after the pair spent the weekend at Queen Elizabeth's Balmoral estate in Scotland.
The couple joined Her Majesty and other members of the royal family at the castle in the Highlands. Prior to the getaway, the nightclub manager had briefly met his girlfriend's grandmother. Jack's invitation to one the monarch's favourite retreats was a sign that an engagement might be on the cards.
However, a spokesperson denied the reports back in August telling Hello!: "The story is not true."
While at the 33rd annual Alzheimer's Association Rita Hayworth Gala on Tuesday (Oct. 25), the mother-of-two also opened up about co-parenting with her ex-husband, Prince Andrew.
She said: "My daughters [Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie] are the finest ambassadors of good parenting from Andrew and I."
Highlighting her oldest daughter's recent accomplishments, the proud mum said: "Beatrice just raised a great deal of money for her charity Big Change, doing a Strive Challenge with the Bransons. And then she went with the Franks Foundation to eye hospitals in Nepal. And she has scoliosis of the spine and she does an awful lot for orthopedic research.”
She added: "They are very extraordinary girls."
