"The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank", Eugenie's parents announced in the United Kingdom on Monday. She is the younger sister of Princess Beatrice of York.

The sparkler bears a striking similarity to the one Eugenie's mother, Sarah Ferguson, was presented with by her ex-husband Prince Andrew, when they became engaged back in 1986 - although Fergie's ring was set with a pink Burma ruby.

She went to Newcastle University and graduated with a degree in English literature, art history and politics.

Next: When and where she said 'yes'.

He was drafted first overall by Cleveland in 2003 and in February 2008 he became the youngest player to score 10,000 points. The Cavs play the injury-strapped Spurs (30-12) for the first time this season Tuesday night at the AT&T Center.

Yes, that's right, he picked a magic ring, because it reminds him of his colourful future wife.

Speaking to BBC 1's Matt Baker for a televised interview, the couple shared details of the romantic proposal. She is also the patron of several charities.

The princess' engagement ring, revealed in the official engagement photos, features a blush-colored padparadscha sapphire center stone wreathed in white diamonds.

The stunning peach-coloured padparadscha sapphire ring was shown off on Twitter today and drew instant comparisons to the ring famously worn by Princess Diana and now, Kate Middleton. What sets a padparadscha sapphire apart from a traditional sapphire is that the gem is a mixture of red and yellow sapphires, which creatures the handsome rosy hue you see below in Princess Eugenie's ring. That ring is of course another lovely sapphire surrounded by diamonds. Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding is slated for autumn 2018, which is between September and November this year. Eugenie wore a floral print Erdem dress and Brooksbank donned a black suit with a patterned red tie.
