Since the announcement, photos of Eugenie's engagement ring have been shared in the couple's official engagement pictures.

The princess' mother was also delighted by the news, taking to her Instagram account nearly immediatley after the news was shared.

The princess, who is eighth in line of succession to the British throne, will marry Brooksbank this autumn at George's Chapel in Windsor.

Shortly after the engagement announcement, the princess and her fiancé gave their first television interview by sitting down with BBC's Matt Baker. While Prince Harry's bride-to-be Meghan Markle wears a traditional diamond-only ring.
