Sarah’s youngest daughter, Eugenie, 26, and boyfriend Jack, 29, have been an item for six years. Engagement rumors began to swirl back in September after the pair spent the weekend at Queen Elizabeth’s Balmoral estate in Scotland.
The couple joined the world’s now-longest reigning monarch and other members of the royal family at the castle in the Highlands. Prior to the getaway, the nightclub manager had briefly met his girlfriend’s grandmother. Jack’s invitation to one of Her Majesty’s favorite retreats was a sign of the couple’s solid relationship.

While at the the 33rd annual Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala on Tuesday, the mom-of-two also opened up about co-parenting her daughters with ex-husband, Prince Andrew. She said, “My daughters [Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie] are the finest ambassadors of good parenting from Andrew and I.”
Highlighting her oldest daughter’s recent accomplishments, the proud mom said, “Beatrice just raised a great deal of money for her charity Big Change, doing a Strive Challenge with the Bransons. And then she went with the Franks Foundation to eye hospitals in Nepal. And she has scoliosis of the spine and she does an awful lot for orthopedic research.”
Fergie noted, “They are very extraordinary girls.”
