Princess Eugenie’s wedding is right around the corner, but one question still remains: Will her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, receive a royal title?
Unfortunately, the answer is more complicated than you think. Unlike Meghan Markle, who received the Duchess of Sussex title after marrying Prince Harry, Brooksbank isn’t guaranteed one. In fact, there’s a good chance he won’t receive one at all.
According to royal historian Marlene Eilers Koenig, Princess Eugenie and her older sister, Princess Beatrice, aren’t considered “working” members of the royal family. (Basically, they’re not obligated to carry out official duties like Prince William and Kate Middleton.) This means “Jack will not be getting any title from the Queen,” she told HELLO! Online.
Why? It all dates back to the early ’90s when the British Parliament stripped the York bloodline of certain requirements.
