Unlike Meghan Markle, Princess Eugenie's fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, won't receive a title after marrying into the royal family. This has been a subject of popular debate for some time—the socialite was previously in the running for the vacant Northallerton earldom—but according to the Duke of York (the father of the soon-to-be-bride), Brooksbank won't receive this upgrade from Queen Elizabeth II, reports the Daily Mail.


Contrary to popular belief, this has nothing to do with not being in good favor with the reigning monarch. Since Princess Eugenie isn't considered a working member of the royal family (she doesn't carry out duties like Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle do), her spouse isn't necessarily entitled to a new moniker. As for how Eugenie and her beau are taking the news? "Eugenie couldn't care less about titles and is perfectly happy to be Mrs. Brooksbank," a source close to the family explained.

Eugenie will remain "Her Royal Highness, Princess Eugenie," with "Mrs. Jack Brooksbank" tacked on.


With the business of future titles sorted, the couple have turned their attentions to wedding preparations. As they approach their October nuptials, they've been spending some extra time nailing down their guest list, which is set to include 1,200 members of the public. As for their grand exit? Just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the newlyweds will depart St. George's Chapel in a carriage to greet adoring bystanders in the adjacent streets.
