By Emmy Griffiths

After a slight delay, Princess Eugenie and her husband-to-be, Jack Brooksbank, have chosen and revealed their wedding date! Having shared their engagement news in late January, the happy couple has now confirmed that they will tie the knot on Oct. 12, 2018. "The marriage of Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank will take place on 12th October 2018," the Royal Family said on their Twitter account, adding, "As previously announced, the wedding will take place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle."

The pair first spoke about their engagement on The One Show, and Eugenie, 27, opened up about how Jack proposed. She said: "The lake was so beautiful, it was a special light and I even said 'this is an incredible moment' and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we had been together seven years. It was the perfect moment because we knew it was going to end up this way." She added: "I was over the moon, crying."
