It will be a busy year for royal weddings: Princess Eugenie is engaged to be married later this year, several months after her cousin Prince Harry's nuptials.

Eugenie, the daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, will marry Jack Brooksbank in the fall, Buckingham Palace said Monday.

The palace said the wedding will take place at St. George's Chapel in Windsor. Prince Harry and his American fiancée Meghan Markle will marry at the same chapel in May.

Eugenie, 27, is the second child born to Andrew and Ferguson, and she works at London's contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth.

Brooksbank, 31, has had a career in the hospitality industry for several years and is a former manager of the Mahiki nightclub, a celebrity hotspot in London.

"Her Royal Highness and Mr. Brooksbank became engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month," the palace tweeted.

Ferguson tweeted: "Total joy!!" to mark the engagement and said the couple "float with laughter and love."

Brooksbank's parents, Nicola and George Brooksbank, also welcomed the news, saying they couldn't be more delighted.
