I hate that Jack Brooksbank has been referred to by name for all these years and now he and Eugenie are engaged and set the date he is starting to be referred to as 'Jack brooksbank, a Vodka Salesman!'

Shades of CP Victoria to marry Daniel "her fitness trainer"! totally ignoring the fact that he owned the upscal private gym and several others as well.

Jack is a really lovely man who treats Eugenie like she's the light of his life, he is eminently suitsble, not some glorified Barman.

I think they look lovely together. Everyone deserves their own fairytale romance and wedding.

Just for curiosity: did Eugenie have another boyfriend before Jack? She was only nearly 20 when she met him.

Princess Margaret's wedding dress was lovely; Tony looked like he was waiting for the Director to say CUT! Short flower bouquets are in fashion but I liked Anne's and Diana's more. Hello magazine will have some lovely pictures of Eugenie and Jack. Have Bridal attendants actually been officially confirmed?

Google certainly doesn't think so, or if there was we didn't know about him.

Browsing on Twitter, I found this from the Hampshire and Thames Valley Police Armed Response, https://twitter.com/JOU_ArmedPolice/...95034284732418
I guess this means that security for the wedding is to be finalized soon.

She used to date Hugo Taylor, who recently married Millie Mackintosh.


Here's an old article that mentions that romance:

Yes, there was another boyfriend. I remembered him, but forgot his name, so had to Google. It was Otto Brockway, nephew of Sir Richard Branson, who the Yorks are close to. Apparently they only dated for 6 months. I think Jack was Eugenie's first "serious" boyfriend. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...life-Otto.html

I doubt this one, just rumours frankly and he is such a social climber I feel Eugenie would have been able to see that.

That's him! I remember that picture. I knew we'd seen at least one other boyfriend.

Eugenie and Jack: Wedding Suggestions and Musings Thread

Outrage expressed on Breakfast TV this morning about taxpayers having to pay double the bill of the original costs for security at a private wedding. Policing of football matches are paid by football clubs so there are calls for the royal club to do likewise:

Now that that is settled, there should be *NO* more vile discontent over who is paying what or how much it cost as that is only on a need to know . I am hoping that Eugenie and Jack will have the wedding of their dreams and all goes well for them...and I so want to see the gorgeous bride in her gown.

Y'know, I'd like to see the statistics of how much security runs when there's an event in Windsor such as Ascot, Garter Day and the Windsor Horse Show. How much more expensive is it to secure the area for Eugenie's wedding? There's always events going on in Windsor that require security and crowd control. Is Eugenie's wedding that much different?

All of the above are pretty much tourist attractions that draw crowds.

Also as pointed out in one of the links...the security are public servants (or whatever they call them there) and are getting paid regardless...so what difference does it make where they guard?

The local police and council budget in the security for annual events. It is the 'special' events that cost extra that cause issues and this year with CHOGM, Trump, Harry and Eugenie's weddings there has been a lot of extra security needed over and above the usual.

The Garter ceremony doesn't go into the streets of Windsor so the security isn't that much more than a normal day. Yes there are some extra police in the castle grounds but not that many more (have been there both on Garter Day and an ordinary day and really didn't see that many more police on the Garter Day visit to other days).

If there was no carriage ride then there wouldn't be a real problem as the security would be about the same as a normal day at Windsor.

Sadly the minor members of the family do have to think about the costs of things if they don't want to see a vocal minority turning into a majority at the costs of things like security.

The police maybe 'public servants' but on events like these most of them are on overtime as they don't draw them from regular duties but cancel their rights to leave or insist they do an extra shift and overtime is quite expensive for any budget.

Nothing has been said about it ...but most likely not.

Maybe they should think twice about the carriage ride?

I just read that full article by the former boyfriend of Lady Gabriella Windsor; he mentioned that there were constant cuts for perks for the minor royals living in KP.
He also said they lived in constant dread of being turfed out!

I'm not sure how accurate his statements were, but it wouldn't surprise me if they were on the mark.

There are loads of comments that Andrew is the one who should pay for any increased security costs, because if it falls to the taxpayers, there's going to be a surge of bad PR.

His article was quite clear, in my eyes, a revenge piece because he'd been turfed out not only from the inner circle but he's now been abandoned by anyone who he was connected with back then. This ex boyfriend dated Ella at minimum from 2003 to 2006, and chose the year of two royal weddings to give a story to the paper 12 years after breaking up with her.

I believe there is also significant difference between the Michaels and their situation and the Yorks as grandchildren of the monarch.
