I felt the same. He was very nervous but you can tell they love each other very much. They had a sweet moment at the word husband. It reminded me of Harry and Meghan in their interview. She had just got the ring last night. Surreal for them. I liked they designed it together. Very sweet.

I’m not a fan of large engagements rings but, as they go, hers is very nice. The colours are lovely.
I think this one is my favorite so far.

Well said!

I was initially thinking October but thought that timing was also tight but maybe not as busy as November. I can't imagine Harry will miss this so they will make sure it doesn't conflict with any of the senior royals.

I always love it when an engagement ring or a piece of jewelry is "outside the box". There are so many different and beautiful gems out there that get little to no attention because they're not commonly used.

Diamonds are overrated, everyone has rubies and sapphires and emeralds as they're "precious" gems but Mother Nature has created some very elegant and beautiful stones that are set apart from the everyday and common.

Its a beautiful ring.

Congratulations to the couple!

I'm sure as pompous as Prince Andrew is, he must have initially insisted on a wedding at Westminster Abbey with foreign heads of state in attendance followed by a huge reception at Buckingham Palace.

The Queen and the household staff probably had to bring him back to reality.

Andrew could have insisted until the cows came home but, the reality is, and I think Andrew knows it quite well, that there was no way on this third rock from the sun that Eugenie's wedding would ever be a state wedding with foreign heads of state.

The most likely reason that St. George's Chapel and Windsor were selected is that it would be (as pointed out before) Eugenie's "home" church as its not far from her "home" at Royal Lodge.

I don't know if it is appropriate to use this term, but I'd consider Jack a member of the 'gentry'. In the continent, since he is a male descendant in male line from a family that holds the equivalent to a hereditary knighthood , he would be considered a member of the nobility.
He is indeed, which must please his future father-in-law enormously. I cannot imagine Andrew being ok with his "blood princess" daughter just marrying any run of the mill bartender.

Lovely news!
Always thought Beatrice and Eugenie would marry at Windsor, though I did wonder if Eugenie at least might choose the Chapel of All Saints which is right next door to Royal Lodge, but it is pretty small. I guess a very similar wedding to Peter and Autumns in many ways, no tv footage from inside, maybe a few clips and coverage of them leaving church.
Only difference so far with Peter and Autumn is that Eugenie and Jack did TV interview, but then she is a HRH.

She beaming in the interview though. Very happy for her. Jack looks so nervous.
Virtually all of the newly-engaged royal couples have given interviews on the day their engagements were announced going way back to Anne and Mark (so did Michael and Marie-Christine, Charles and Diana, Andrew and Sarah, Richard and Birgitte, Zara and Mike, and even IIRC George St. Andrews and Sylvana. Before that, there were "silent" photocalls.) When I first saw the news my next thought was "when's the interview?" This interview was nothing new and any criticism is just another instance of York-bashing IMO.

Now that's a lovely and genuine happy couple.
The way he's looking at her ... just wonderful.

Wow, what horrible comments on here about Andrew and Sarah. Has Andrew ever given an interview where anyone on here has heard him "demand" his daughters' husbands be made peers or that they marry in Westminster Abbey or say that a mere bartender would not be good enough for his daughter. All of this bile seems to be coming from second hand reports quoting dubious un-named sources.

For all their perceived faults, Andrew and Sarah seem to have raised two well adjusted daughters who love them both very much, who seem to love and respect their family and who, as far as I am aware, have never said anything to embarrass their family but have put up with being bullied and ridiculed by the media with grace and good nature.

I'm not too surprised by this lovely news as I'd been predicting for a while that they would get engaged. Eugenie and Jack seem to be very happy together - which really shows in their engagement photos - the pair of them are positively glowing! Congratulations to them and interesting to see that they are also going to be getting married at Windsor.

This is going to be a very exciting year for the BRF and us royal watchers! I'm wondering if we should start a separate thread for wedding musings like we have for Harry and Meghan?

Jack seemed nervous in the interview but you can see the affection between them. The comments on DM - they are really running with the barman crack about him, although he went to a fine school. Throw in the pictures where he partied back in the day and they are with Eugenie is marrying beneath her theme. Not too many are impressed with the noble blood line. I hope Eugenie prepared Jack for the increase of scrutiny now that they are engaged. DM and other rags are going to be searching for exes and randoms with stories to tell. Remember Madeline of Sweden's first engagement? Some woman went to the tabloids telling them she hooked up with her fiance on her watch (claiming she didn't know at the time). That ended the engagement.

I think he’s just a dad celebrating his daughter’s happiness. Let him have that joy even Sarah. I’m usually not team York but Eugenie and Jack deserve their moment as well as all the parents. Yesterday seeing pics at church, they must have been bursting counting down the hours until the announcement. It’s a joy only a parent can know to see your chid so happy.

I would ad that Eugenie being an Art buff (she worked for the Royal collections), the Picture Gallery at Buck house (and a well known Vermeer) as the backround of the photo is a very nice touch.

So now we need a thread about the dress....I must admit I'm a bit nervous about what she will pick ...when she gets it right it's terrific but there are times it's not so terrific.
