The ring (above) features an oval, coral-colored padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds, and looks quite a bit like Eugenie's mother's engagement ring (below), which featured a Burmese ruby surrounded by diamonds. Prince Andrew designed that ring himself.

During a visit to the King’s Lynn Innovation Centre, Prince Andrew said, "I’m just completely overjoyed for them and wish them every happiness."

Additional details of the wedding have yet to be announced. The Queen and Prince Philip added they are "very pleased and wish the couple all the best" through a Buckingham Palace spokesperson, according to the BBC.

Eugenie and Brooksbank have been dating for seven years. They were introduced by friends in Verbier, a Swiss ski resort that's a favorite of the royals when Eugenie was still a student at Newcastle University, People reports. Eugenie currently works at the London art gallery Hauser and Wirth.
