In September 2016, Brooksbank was invited to join the Queen and other members of the royal family at Balmoral in Scotland, which sparked engagement rumors, as not just anyone is allowed to stay with the Queen.
“You could call this weekend a rite of passage for Jack. There is no way he would be invited to stay with the Queen unless he was being welcomed into the royal fold and the bosom of the family,” an insider explained to the Daily Express.
Fast forward less than two years later, and the couple marked their engagement with a cute video on the Royal Family’s YouTube channel, and the rest, they say is history.
How sweet! Don’t forget to tune in to watch the couple exchange vows on Oct. 12 at 9:25 a.m. local time, or 4:25 a.m. ET.
