Wonderful news! Congratulations to Princess Eugenie, Jack, and their families!

I'm disappointed at the insinuations of PR stunt or Andrew demanding this or Sarah insisting on that…

I understand Andrew and Sarah have issues but can't the York bashing pause briefly to celebrate this happy news?!

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.
well said. I am also appalled by the bile some posters have spewed out in this thread. No sources quoted just nasty gossip. Sadly says more about them as the source is there for us all to see.

I am very pleased for the couple and their parents are obviously very happy.
They are clearly so happy and excited. Great news!

At least Kate is getting a break because it seems the media has turned to comparing her and Meghan since their weddings will be happening at the same church in the same year. Sheesh. They wasting no time whatsoever. Some of these paper covers. Shame.

I don't think she has to warn Jack about life with a royal. He has been with her for years now. He knows. It will just be upped a bit since it is official but he is not going in with his eyes shut. He knows her and her family and the drama that comes with it all.

I wish them luck and nothing but happiness.

She needs to work with the curves and not try to wear something just because it's 'trendy' ..she gets into trouble there.

Totally agree with you. Eugenie is a lovely young woman who has demonstrated nothing but loyalty and respect for the family into which she was born. BTW, her parents have every reason to be happy for her. Also —- she has every right to marry to Windsor. There is absolutely no proof that Andrew demanded Westminster Abbey. I think all the royals are on the same page more than people give them credit for. Lastly, let’s all remember that Andre is still the child of a reigning monarch!

Some people just disgust me!

Her style is definitely unique but I am excited to see her dress and if which tiara she picks. I can see a cape design. I think it would look great on her.

I can't imagine she would wear anything other than her mother's tiara.

What wonderful news! I've always liked Eugenie and wish her the best. I had never heard of padparadscha sapphire before. Another idea for a Valentine's Day gift from my husband. I may have to settle for a manufactured stone though.

Totally agree.

The press like to paint the BRF as a family at odds with each other - especially Charles against Andrew and thus their children at odds with each other.

Remember a year or so back when Andrew issued the statement that made it clear he wasn't at odds with his older brother over issues, including the status of his daughters.

I was so happy to wake up to this news. I like this couple very much.

I also like that she wore a dress that had already gone through the public approval mill so that the main commentary would not be about the dress, with links to vendors and so forth.

I love the idea of the fall wedding. That's what HM did. I can just see The Duke of York walking her up the aisle.

I just hope Fergie doesn't lay a big egg in the middle of these hopeful times what with her lawsuit and attention-getting Twitter bromides.

Yes! Well spotted, Nico. That's her profession as well.

And if I may say, reddish - coral wallcovering is always flattering to a pale complexion.

And notice that Jack's tie was a bit coral/pinkish tones to it as the ring and then some of the floral in Eugenie's dress so it all came together in that beautiful room with that gorgeous wall paper and paintings. Just a really beautiful place to have this engagement!
