Princess Eugenie has officially been a married woman for quite some time now, but it wasn’t until recently that she publicly changed her name to honor her husband, Jack Brooksbank. Late last week, the Court Circular, the “official record of past royal engagements,” referred to Princess Eugenie by her new title, and we’re so here for it.
According to the Court Circular, Princess Eugenie’s new title is “Princess Eugenie, Mrs. Jack Brooksbank,” which is a definitely change from her previously held title, “Princess Eugenie of York,” a nod to her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York. (In the same Court Circular report, her sister Princess Beatrice was referred to as “Princess Beatrice of York.”)
Princess Eugenie’s new title has changed as recently as last month, given that she was referred to simply as “Princess Eugenie” in April for the Maundy Service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, and “Princess Eugenie of York” in March during a visit to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, which also happened to be Brooksbank’s first royal engagement.
Long before the official change, however, Princess Eugenie was happily embracing her husband’s name, most notably with the “Mrs. Brooksbank”-embroidered jacket she wore for the festival-style party she and Brooksbank threw the day after their wedding.
Her friends have been big on her new name as well. “All the love to HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs Brooksbank and her lovely new husband Jack,” designer Sam Dougal captioned a close-up photo of the jacket on Instagram. “Im so so honored to have been asked to design the bespoke look she wore for the day 2 wedding celebrations at Windsor in collaboration with her brilliant stylist @styletonic_sarahprice. The pale pink biker jacket was embroidered with the words ‘Mrs Brooksbank’ in the Princess’ own handwriting 💙.”
Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank married in an elegant ceremony on Friday, Oct. 12; Brooksbank proposed over New Year’s Eve of last year while the pair was traveling in Nicaragua.
