The friendship between Prince Eugenie of York and British wine merchant and socialite Jack Brooksbank is what made him famous. In January 2018, Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie confirmed their engagement, following which the Buckingham Palace announced their impending nuptials. The Duke and Duchess of York, the British Prime Minister Theresa May, and a host of other dignitaries congratulated the pair shortly after learning of their engagement. As a descendant of the Brooksbank baronets, Jack Brooksbank also had a royal heritage. At the moment, he represents the tequila company “Casamigos Tequila,” which was co-founded by well-known Hollywood actor George Clooney.
