According to Buckingham Palace, Brooksbank (socialite and former manager of Mayfair club, Mahiki) got down on one knee and popped the question in Nicaragua, in front of a volcano!
According to the Princess, “The lake was so beautiful. The light was just a special light I had never seen. I actually said this is an incredible moment, and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we have been together seven years.”
She continued, “I was over the moon. [It was a] complete surprise. But it was the perfect moment, we couldn’t be happier.”
He proposed with a padparadscha sapphire ring, which resembles the one that Princess Eugenie’s mother was given by her father for their engagement.
“I found a ring in a jewellers and then proposed to Eugenie without it and came back and we designed the diamonds around this padparadscha sapphire,” said Brooksbank.
He added, “And what’s amazing about it is that it changes colour from every different angle that you look at it, which is what I think of Eugenie. That she changes colour and is just so amazing.”
Princess Eugenie’s future parents-in-law, Nicola and George, are just as happy as her own parents, after hearing that the couple of seven years, are finally getting married!
“We could not be more delighted with the news of the engagement. We are completely over the moon and are very excited for them both,” they said.
