Can you expand a little further? You were right about Pippa and Nico, so you seem good at sensing impending break-ups.

They may or may not broadcast the wedding this time, but if they do I suspect it will be the last time for royals who are not in the direct line. I can't imagine the future weddings of the Wessex-children will be televised for example. The trend is to downsize and focus on the core.

In my own country all four Van Vollenhoven weddings were televised, but I am sure that this will not be the case for the children of f.e. Prince Constantijn. In Belgium they did release some parts of the ceremony of prince Amedeo and Elisabetta RvW to the press but they did not broadcast it live or completely. Maybe it is an option to do the same thing in this case.

Back in the day, the weddings of the duke of Kent and his sister Alexandra were televised but the wedding of the now duke of Gloucester was not.

It's simply that I'm not a fan of long courtships. Eugenie and Jack have been dating around eight years.
It's my belief that, if a couple has been together longer than a year and haven't moved to the next level, then there won't be a next level.

Unless, of course, there is a reason (Like William attending Sandhurst, doing pilot training, etc.)

But with Eugenie and Jack, there is no reason, just like there wasn't a reason for Pippa/Nico or Beatrice/Dave.
So I say it's not going to happen.

(I know some will say that they are happy as they are; I don't buy it).

Future York Weddings

Jack was in the process starting up his wine business. Maybe he didn't want to be accused using his relationship with Eugenie as cashing on his royal connections.

No one here knows them personally, they are private individuals. Eugenie isn't getting any taxpayer funds so when and how they decide to marry is totally up to them.

If they have been dating for 8 years, Eugenie was only 19 when they started. She still had go to university and find a career since she wasn't going to be a working royal

I think they might remarry when Charles (or William) is king. I don't think they will do it while the Queen and Prince Philip are still alive, even if the Queen's formal consent is no longer legally required.

I disagree with Curryong though in the sense that, in their own way, I think they still have feelings for each other and are not just friends and co-parents. And I suspect Sarah would like having a title again and being back to official royal events as a formal member of the family. That is a topic for another thread though.

Didn't Jack start that wine business nearly three years ago?
And Eugenie has been out of university for a long time.
And yet they are not even engaged, let alone married.

So I'm thinking they will not be. (Of course, I could be wrong.)

Most businesses don't become successful overnight. Why does it even matter if and when they marry?

As a side note: Jack Brooksbank is UK brand ambassador for Casamigos, which George Clooney and his partner(s) have just sold for about $1billion. It's possible that Jack may have owned a few shares of it, also. IMO

If you had asked me about 10-15 years ago I would have said yes. But now not so much. Too much time has passed and Sarah has put her foot in it one too many times. So has Andrew for that matter and in that way they are kind of made for one another but no, I think that ship has sailed.

Which is a shame, because as hard as it is to remember now, they were once a great couple. Just looking at them made me believe in soul-mates and true love.

I didn't say it did matter.
It doesn't to anyone else.

But I was asked why I think they might split up, and that is why.
Either people are committed to each other, or they're not.

If they've been together eight years and no ring, then in my opinion they are not.

Commitment doesn't need a ring. There are plenty of committed couples who aren't married and there are plenty of married couples who aren't committed to each other

Yep I'm with you on this...I really thought at one point they'd remarry...but now don't think it will ever happen...and really I guess there is no reason for them to marry.

Perhaps, but to me, the willingness to marry is an indication of commitment.
Does it always work out?
Of course not!

But I do think couples who are reluctant to take that step already have one eye on the door.

I seriously don't think Andrew and Sarah will remarry for the simple reason being that with the relationship they have right now, it works perfectly for the both of them and they have the best of both worlds. Together when they want to be and able to be their own single selves when they want to be.

If a couple has the happiest divorce on earth as Sarah says, why fix it?

Why remarry? She can do as she pleases without the circus that follows the family.

I agree. I have been expecting an engagement for Ella Windsor too but I'm starting to think that after 3 years with Tom it:'s not going to happen. She's 36 so time isn't on her side children wise and she has said she wants a family. People with money don't need to wait like the rest of us if they really are committed to each other.

I think we can look at these couples inside out and backwards until we're blue in the face and old and wrinkled like the wicked witch of the West but unless we know the couple, we actually have no clue what their relationship is actually like. For all we know, Eugenie and Jack could be the very best of friends that love each other.... as friends. Maybe they've both haven't found the one they want to spend the rest of their life with in marriage and with a family. We just don't know.

People take their relationships on an individual basis and there's no one size fits all kind of a rule book for them. Some people find they're ready to marry and start a family after a month of being together. Some take years to take that step. Some never take that step at all and love being single and hanging out with best buddies.

she woudlnt' get inot "the family", ever again. Even if permission is not required, I don't believe the rest of the RF will ever take to her again and Andrew would nt wish to give up his bachelor freedom, to marry a woman who didn't wrok out the first time. And Fergie will always be silly, selfish and uncontrollable.. but she would problaby LOVE to be taken back by Andy and have the security of being married to a royal.

If Eugenie and Jack get engaged and marry soon, I am sure one of the flower girls will be Maud Windsor (5 next year) - her, as for now, only goddaughter.
