The Princess York and Jack wed in an idyllic ceremony back in 2018, which followed hot on the heels of her cousin Prince Harry’s union to US actress Meghan Markle. The year represented a major breakthrough for the Royal Family and public relations, with the world engrossed once again with the goings on of the Firm. With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle now officially no longer carrying out senior royal duties, after their bid to lead a “financially independent” life was approved by the Queen, other royals – including Eugenie – have taken on more roles, leading to wider scrutiny on them.

Despite the additional pressures that come with her higher status within the Royal Family, it would appear Eugenie’s personal life – and marriage – is still going strong.

And Princess Eugenie’s love for Jack was evidently clear as she opened up on BBC’s ‘The One Show’ ahead of her marriage two years ago.

Speaking to the hosts, Eugenie and Jack paid a visit to the studio to discuss their engagement, which came after Jack got down on one knee and proposed while the couple were holidaying in Nicaragua.

During her chat, Eugenie made the emotional confession on why she and Jack were perfect for each other.

She said: “We’re very happy and excited. “We met while skiing in Nendaz, near Verbier. I was 20 and Jack was 24.

“It was love at first sight for both of us. We have the same passions and drive for life.

“It’s nice that we get to share this moment with everyone.”

Their moment was shared with the public, as around three million people tuned into ITV’s coverage of the event, with thousands more out on the streets of Windsor to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds.

Around 800 guests would attend Eugenie and Jack’s wedding, including celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell, James Blunt, Ellie Goulding, Demi Moore and Kate Moss, as the October event was watched by millions on ITV’s ‘This Morning’.

But one guest, many believed, stole the show as a result of her appearance and that was Eugenie’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond explained: “The focus of the day was of course on the couple; an unsurprisingly nervous groom, his hand shaking at times, his gaze twitching as he waited for his bride; a beaming princess, unable to control her joy.

“There was more; flawless organisation, hat dysfunction as the wind blew and blew, hatchets buried as the Duke of Edinburgh settled into a seat near Sarah, Duchess of York, with whom he has had a frosty – sometimes frozen – relationship.

“But most noticeable at Windsor? The applause that followed the national anthem and the cheers for the Queen as she left the chapel. No one eclipses the Queen in the affections of the British public.”

It comes after Princess Eugenie used her social media profile to help boost the presence of a group of men who are running more than 240 miles to raise funds for men in suicidal crises.

In the post, Eugenie said: “Suicide is the leading cause of death of men under the age of 50, access to the right support can change this.”

She also explained that the charity – James’ Place – was close to her heart and since opening in 2018 had “supported over 300 men in their darkest moments”.
