Britain's Princess Eugenie is engaged to her long-term boyfriend.

The 28-year-old and former Mahiki nightclub manager Jack Brooksbank, who have been dating for seven years, are headed up the aisle, Buckingham Palace announced today. Last year, it was reported the couple had an informal agreement to be engaged by the end of 2017 and they're just a few weeks behind on their promise.

Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's youngest daughter was said to be "blissfully happy" when she and Jack made the arrangement.

The couple currently live in their own flat in Kensington Palace, where they will pay rent at market rate, in the three bedroom Ivy Cottage. Despite their long relationship, the couple largely avoid the spotlight, but were pictured together last may at Pippa Middleton's wedding.

Royal wedding fever has officially hit the family as Prince Harry will wed fiancée Meghan Markle in May at St George's Castle in Windsor Castle. Eugenie and Jack will also exchange vows there in the autumn. Jack popped the question during a trip to Nicaragua earlier this month.

Jack is UK brand ambassador for Casamigos Tequila and Eugenie works for an art gallery.
