Why Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank Didn’t Get Royal Titles

(Source: eonline.com)

No titles were used during the couple’s ceremony, and they are traditionally given beforehand.

Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, received titles a few hours before their 2018 wedding. “The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales. His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel,” a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said. “Prince Harry thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Ms. Meghan Markle on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.” Likewise, William and his wife, Kate Middleton, received titles before their 2011 wedding. “The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince William of Wales. His titles will be Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus,” Buckingham Palace said. “Prince William thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge and Miss Catherine Middleton on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.”

(Like Kate and Meghan, Jack isn’t of the royal bloodline, meaning he can never take the crown.)

The Queen adores Jack, of course. In fact, Her Majesty was one of the first people to learn he’d proposed to Eugenie during a trip to Nicaragua in January. “Granny actually knew right at the beginning,” Eugenie revealed in a BBC interview. “She was very happy, as was my grandfather.”

Eugenie was over the moon, proudly flashing her custom engagement ring. “We met when I was 20 and Jack was 24 and fell in love,” she said. “We have the same passions and drive for life.” Jack, who is a brand ambassador for Casamigos Tequila, said it was love at first sight. “I love Eugenie so much,” he raved, “and we are just so happy and over the moon for what is to come.”
