Her Royal Highness, Princess Eugenie of York, is the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York.
Eugenie Victoria Helena was born on March 23, 1990. Princess Eugenie’s godparents are James Ogilvy, Captain Alistair Ross, Mrs. Ronald Ferguson, Mrs. Patrick Dodd-Noble, and Miss Louise Blacker. She was baptized at the Church of St Mary Magdalene, Sandringham, by the Bishop of Norwich, on December 23, 1990.
Her official title is Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie.
As a male-line grandchild of the sovereign (at the time of her birth), Eugenie was known as “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York,” with the territorial designation coming from her father’s title, Duke of York. Since her marriage, she has been styled “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank.”
There were some rumors that the Princess was secretly engaged to a wine merchant named Jack Stamp Brooksbank. This turned out to be true as they ended up getting married on October 12, 2018, after dating for seven years.
They are blood relatives on her mother’s side, although it would be a distant relation. Eugenie’s mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, is Lady Julia Coke’s great-great-granddaughter, the daughter of Brooksbank’s great-great-grandfather Thomas Coke, 2nd Earl of Leicester.
Because of this connection, the press has dubbed the couple “kissing cousins,” albeit distant cousins.
On February 9, 2021, she had her first child. August Brooksbank is the first grandchild of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. He’s also the Queen and Prince Philp’s ninth great-grandchild.
Princess Eugenie named her son after her grandfather, Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, and two of his five-times great-grandfathers: Reverend Edward Hawke Brooksbank and Prince Albert, whose given names included “Augustus.”
