Who is Jack Brooksbank?  

Jack is 32-years-old and is Princess Eugenie soon to be husband.
 
Jack's family are used to being in royal circles as they reportedly descended from the Brooksbank baronets, according to the Telegraph
 
The prestigious British hereditary title is directly below baron, with viscounts, earls, marquesses, and dukes above it.
 
Believe it or not, Jack and Eugenie are third cousins, once removed - a bit like the Queen and Prince Philip who are also third cousins.
 
This is because Eugenie's mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, is the great-great-granddaughter of Lady Julia Coke, who is also the daughter of Jack's great-great-grandfather, Thomas William Coke, the Second Earl of Leicester.
