Nightclub boss Jack proposed to his girlfriend of seven years during a trip to Nicaragua earlier this month, the couple announced on Monday morning.

The dazzling ring also looks similar to the ruby and diamond engagement ring given to her mother the Duchess of York by Prince Andrew upon their engagement in 1986. She's now eighth in line for the throne.

The palace released a statement on behalf of Eugenie's parents, saying, "The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank".

Taking to Twitter, the Duchess posted a picture of the newly-engaged couple featuring the words: "A total embrace of goodness and joy".

This means the royal family will once again convene at the chapel less than six months after the sixth-in-line to the throne, Prince Harry marries American actress Meghan in what will undoubtedly be the wedding of the year.

In three tweets - which were retweeted by the Duke of York - Sarah Duchess of York expressed her happiness at the news.

The couple met through common friend at the Swiss ski resort of Verbier in 2010.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said on Eugenie's grandparents' behalf that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are "very pleased and wish the couple all the best".

While the value of Princess Eugenie's ring is unknown, her wedding to the man United Kingdom society magazine Tatler described as "the king of the London club scene" is sure to be an event to remember.

"Jack is an absolutely outstanding young man and Eugenie and he have got to know each other over a number of years, and I'm really thrilled for them", the prince said.

When the couple Wednesday, the eighth-in-line to the British throne will retain her royal title but will have the option of taking her husband's surname. They will be married in the fall of 2018 at George's Chapel in Windsor, the same venue that her cousin, Prince Harry, will use to marry Meghan Markle this spring.

"I love Eugenie so much and we are just so happy and over the moon for what is to come", he said.
