Princess Eugenie and her fiance Jack Brooksbank are talking about their royal engagement.

Eugenie is the younger daughter of Queen Elizabeth II's second-born son, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, and ex-wife Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson.

Eugenie, 27, will tie the knot with the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson at St George's Chapel in the autumn.

After their engagement announcement, Princess Eugenie and Jack appeared on BBC's The One Show, and she revealed that Jack proposed to her by a lake.

The couple will Wednesday at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, the same location that will host Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials in May. The messages of congratulations have been flooding in for the newly-engaged couple all day, however, we've been distracted by pictures of Eugenie's ring that have been shared online.

Yes, the pair who met back in 2010 are now set to Wednesday in a lavish ceremony in St George's Chapel later this year.

Alongside one sweet black and white image of the couple cuddling, the proud mother-of-the bride wrote: "I always say that the river flows well to it's destiny because of the guidance of a solid rock".

In her first tweet, the duchess, 58, told of her "total joy".

The royal couple will be married in the fall, several months after the highly anticipated wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Mr Brooksbank's parents, Nicola and George Brooksbank, said they were "completely over the moon" and "very excited" for the couple.

The Princess's long-term boyfriend Jack, 31, popped the question in Nicaragua earlier this month with the unusual ring; a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds. "And she was very happy, as was my grandfather", Eugenie said of the reaction from the queen and husband Prince Philip.

According to her, it was "really surprising, even though we've been together seven years".

She does not carry out royal duties and works as an art gallery director and philanthropist.
