The public also got a glimpse at Eugenie's ring-a padparadscha sapphire, encrusted in diamonds.

While the excitement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding is on a steady rise, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank is now engaged.

The Princess is wearing an Erdem dress and Jimmy Choo shoes.

Princess Eugenie is a household name in the United Kingdom, but she's probably best known to Americans, along with her sister, Princess Beatrice, for the flamboyant hat she wore to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding.

The groom-to-be's parents, Nicola and George Brooksbank, said they're "completely over the moon" for the couple.

Nicola and George Brooksbank, the parents of Eugenie's fiance Jack Brooksbank, have spoken of their joy about the couple announcing their plans to Wednesday. The unusual sparkler is incredibly rare (reportedly the rarest kind in the sapphire family), and thus an unusual choice for an engagement ring - until you take a look at the ring the bride's mother received upon her engagement in 1986.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh "are very pleased and wish the couple all the best" following their exciting announcement. The gorgeous ring, which resembles a flower, is believed to have been inspired by Eugenie's mother, the Duchess of York's own engagement ring.

Furthermore, the daughter of Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York, Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson, showed off a brand-new blush-colored padparadscha sapphire engagement ring surrounded by a cluster of diamonds.

When asked about the Queen's involvement, Eugenie replied: "Granny actually knew right at the beginning, she was one of the very few people at the beginning, we left her this weekend and had a lovely time and she was very happy, as was my grandfather".

The wedding will take place at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's choice of venue, St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, later this year.

The Duke of York later said: "I'm absolutely overjoyed".
