Princess Eugenie of York announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank just last month and let's just say that we're not sad that another royal wedding is in the works. It turns out Jack and Eugenie have lovely manners to go with their meet-cute-on-the-slopes backstory: The couple sweetly thanked their well-wishers with handwritten notes! The Instagram account, Letters Royal, posted the card displaying Princess Eugenie's whimsical cursive:

The note reads:

"We are so grateful for your lovely message congratulating us on our engagement. We are so happy and excited and look forward to 2018 being a very special year for us. Thank you for thinking of us."

Their penchant for the traditional doesn't end with their thank you notes. Eugenie's gorgeous ruby and diamond ring resembles her mother's, which was designed by her father, Prince Andrew. The couple has been together for 7 years and became engaged while on vacation in Nicaragua. Princess Eugenie describes the day this way: "The lake was so beautiful. The light was just a special light I had never seen. I actually said this is an incredible moment, and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we have been together seven years."

The wedding is set for October 12, 2018, and will take place in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, which is the setting of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's ceremony as well.
