PRINCE HARRY warmed the hearts of the nation today as he brought a moving tribute to his wife Meghan Markle to celebrate her birthday. But what do Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have in common with Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank?
Meghan Markle is celebrating her 38th birthday today, the first ever since she welcomed her son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and the second since she married Prince Harry. The duke and duchess of Sussex are hugely popular around the world with 9.3 million followers on Instagram. Prince Harry’s cousin, Princess Eugenie, is also very active on social media and often shares cute photos with her new husband Jack Brooksbank. But what five similarities do these royal couples have in common?
Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie held their wedding in the same church
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married on May 19, 2018 in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The chapel had previously been the location for the weddings of Prince Harry’s uncle, the Count of Wessex, as well as those of his cousin, Peter Phillips.
It was also the location used for the blessing of the wedding of Prince Harry’s father Prince Charles and his second wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
In October 2018, Princess Eugenie held her marriage to Jack Brooksbank at the same location.
They both married commoners
Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie are both direct grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth II.
Prince Harry is the son of the queen and the eldest son Prince Charles of Prince Philip, while Princess Eugenie is the daughter of the third child of the queen Prince Andrew.
When it came to getting married, each of them chose to marry an ordinary citizen, which means an ordinary or ordinary person, as opposed to a member of the aristocracy or kingship.
Before she became the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle was an American actress.
Her down-to-earth nature made her a fast favorite with the nation and led the couple to invite 1,200 members of the public to attend the wedding, estimated by an estimated 24 million people around the world.
Princess Eugenie’s predecessor Jack Brooksbank is the son of Nicola and George, an accountant and a business manager, according to People magazine.
Jack works in the hospitality industry as a wine trade and brand ambassador for Casamigos tequila.
In 2013 he told the email: “I want to create a chain of pubs. It has been my dream since I was 18. I have fond memories of Sunday roasts in open fire pubs, and it is something I want to recreate. I love pubs and often go to my local beer. “
Meghan and Jack are both inspired by wine
Before Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, she had her own lifestyle website called The Tig.
The name The Tig is inspired by her favorite type of wine
On the homepage of her site she explained why she chose the name: “A few years ago I had a sip of wine called Tignanello (pronounced” teen-ya-nello “).
“But let’s be real – in the states most people said” tig-na-nello “… or just Tig.
“The Italiano of everything gets a bit tricky, so the bartender kept it simple; it was a glass of Tig.
So there I am, with very minimal wine knowledge and I take a sip of this wine.
“It wasn’t just red or white – suddenly I understood what people meant by the body, the legs, the structure of wine. It was a moment of ah-ha at its best.
“For me, it became a Tig moment – a moment to get it.”
Jack is also a fan of wine and actually owns his own wine merchant.
The company is called Jack Brooksbank Ltd, and according to Companies House, it was founded in 2016 with its headquarters in Borehamwood and is listed as the company’s director.
