Princess Eugenie is set to delay her wedding to Jack Brooksbank due to the royal family’s hectic diary schedule. The couple, who announced their engagement on Monday, planned to tie the knot this September but have had to move their big day until October. For example, Eugenie’s cousin Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle are planning to be in Australia in February for the Prince's Invictus Games.
‘Eugenie and Jack are keen to tie the knot quite quickly, and there certainly wouldn't be any issue as regards the booking of the chapel given who her grandmother is,’ a royal source told The Daily Mail.
‘But the issue is that some members of the Royal Family already have commitments in the diary. There is nothing concrete yet, but it looks as if Eugenie and Jack will go for October instead,’ the source elaborated.
‘It's now about finding the time and the date and getting it all organised, I think probably in the autumn some time, is the time every is looking at. We can't fix a date yet, we've got to look at everybody's diaries it's a bit more complicated than that,’ Eugenie’s father The Duke of York told the BBC.
The couple have chosen the same location for their wedding as Prince Harry, who is wedding Meghan Markle at Windsor's St George's Chapel in May.
The youngest daughter of of Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, Princess Eugenie is ninth in line to the throne, behind her sister Princess Beatrice. The royal met her boyfriend, a former manager at Mahiki, six years ago while on a skiing trip in Verbier. According to the official statement from Buckingham Palace, the couple became engaged earlier this month on a trip to Nicaragua.
