The Sweet Way Princess Eugenie Took Part in Her Sister Princess Beatrice's Engagement
On Thursday, Buckingham Palace announced the engagement between the Queen’s granddaughter, 31, and her multi-millionaire property tycoon boyfriend, who proposed to the princess while on vacation in Italy earlier this month. Now the two are releasing the blissful photos from their milestone moment.
Eugenie shared the romantic images of her sister and her now-fiancé on Instagram alongside the caption: “Beabea – wow! I’m so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo. It’s been a long time coming and you two are meant to be.”
The 29-year-old princess, who wed Jack Brooksbank in a fall-inspired wedding at Windsor Castle on Oct. 12, 2018, added, “ by me!!”
In the sweet photos, Beatrice gazes into her fiancé’s eyes as the couple embraces in the beaming sunlight. The royal dons a floral dress and happily shows off her round diamond engagement ring.
The series of engagement photos also features classic black-and-white photos taken by Misan Harriman.
The newly-engaged couple couldn’t be happier about the news, saying in a statement, “We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement. We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to be married.
“We share so many similar interests and values and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness”
Beatrice’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, were equally excited for their oldest daughter, saying in a statement: “We are thrilled that Beatrice and Edoardo have got engaged, having watched their relationship develop with pride. We are the lucky parents of a wonderful daughter who has found her love and companion in a completely devoted friend and a loyal young man. We send them every good wish for a wonderful family future.”
Fergie then took to Instagram where she further expressed her excitement for Beatrice.
“I know what a mother feels so I have tears of joy. I am so proud of this sensational news. Andrew and I are just the luckiest people ever to have two great sons in law,” she wrote alongside Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi’s engagement photos. “@princesseugenie took the colour photographs as my girls are so close. Beatrice and Edo wanted her to capture this special moment.”
