As Jack Brooksbank looks forward to his wedding with Princess Eugenie, this is what we know about him:
Mr Brooksbank, 31, was introduced to Eugenie, 27, while they were skiing at the Royal hotspot of Verbier in Switzerland in 2010. He described it as “love at first sight”.
He is the son of company director Nicola, 64, and accountant George, 68, and is reportedly very distantly related to his wife-to-be.
According to The Daily Telegraph, the Duchess of York is the great great granddaughter of Lady Julia Coke, who is the daughter of Mr Brooksbank’s great great grandfather, Thomas Coke.
Mr Brooksbank also has a younger brother, Thomas, 29, and since 2001 the family’s home has been an apartment in a gated period conversion in Wandsworth.
Mr Brooksbank was educated at Stowe School in Buckinghamshire, but he did not go on to attend university. Instead he went into the hospitality industry.
He worked at the Admiral Codrington pub in Chelsea.
Then he was poached by Piers Adam, the millionaire owner of some of London’s most trendy venues, to join the Chelsea gastropub Markham Inn.
He spent three years there and, during that time, he was introduced to Prince Harry.
Among his other workplaces was Mayfair’s Mahiki, but he is now brand ambassador for Casamigos tequila.
Casamigos was founded by actor George Clooney, along with two other men, but was sold last year to Diageo.
Mr Brooksbank has previously spoken about an ambition to run his own business, telling the Daily Mail: “I want to create a chain of pubs.
“It has been my dream since I was 18.
“I have fond memories of Sunday roasts in pubs with log fires, and it’s something I want to recreate.”
Since he met Eugenie, he has been seen at a number of high-profile events, including Royal Ascot, and their relationship even survived the time his now-fiancee spent working in the US.
