He Loves to Ski (In Fact, That’s How He Met Eugenie)

When Jack hit the slopes in Verbier, Switzerland—a favorite spot of his and a royal hangout—he crossed paths with Eugenie for the very first time, according to The Guardian. Seven years later, he proposed.

He Just Turned 32 Years Old

Eugenie couldn’t contain her birthday glee, feting her fiancé on Instagram on May 3 (the actual day). Jack’s a Taurus, for the record, and Eugenie is an Aries (her birthday is March 23). According to the zodiac, this makes them quite compatible romantically and as friends.

His Boss is George Clooney

Yep, after Jack’s parents shelled out for him to attend private school at Stowe in Buckinghamshire, England, Jack skipped college to work in hospitality. He managed the popular London nightclub Mahiki—where Prince Harry loves to party—before being tapped to work as the UK ambassador for Casamigos, the tequila brand owned by George Clooney and Cindy Crawford’s hubby, Rande Gerber.

His Future (Royal) In-Laws Are Fans

Immediately after his engagement to Eugenie was announced, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson took to social media to share their enthusiasm for their soon-to-be son-in-law. Fergie (mom of the bride) had this to say on Twitter: “We love Jack and I am so excited to have a son, a brother and a best friend. Eugenie is one of the finest people I know so together it will be pure harmony.” Andrew said, “I’m just completely overjoyed and wish them every happiness.” Awww.

He Supposedly Got Queen Elizabeth’s Marriage Approval

Royal rumors were rampant after Jack joined Eugenie at Balmoral for “Prince Harry’s 32nd birthday” in 2016. Air quotes because, apparently, it was all a ruse for him to get Queen Eliz’s sign-off before he popped the question to Eugenie, per Hello.

He’s Not the Only Jack in Eugenie’s Fam

In a 2016 interview Eugenie did with Harper’s Bazaar, she revealed that her BF Jack actually shares a moniker with another (four-legged) love of her life: “My first conversation is often with my mum, saying, ‘Good morning, what are you doing today?’ Or it’s with my boyfriend, Jack. Sometimes I don’t speak until I get into work and talk to the team. Or it’s my doggie Jack—yes, my boyfriend and my dog have the same name—total accident!” LOLZ.
