Who is Thomas Brooksbank? Jack Brooksbank's best man at his Royal Wedding to Princess Eugenie

Here's what we know about the man who will help his sibling join the Royal Family.

Who is Tom Brooksbank?

Thomas Brooksbank is the brother of Princess Eugenie's husband to be Jack.

Not much is known about the groom's younger brother who will be doing the honours on October 12.

He is Jack's only sibling, and currently works at Troy Asset Management, a fund management company based in London.

Tom graduated from Leeds University in 2011.

Who is Jack Brooksbank?

It was at the Duke of York's 50th birthday on the Swiss ski slopes of Verbier that Eugenie and Jack first brushed shoulders, causing a spark that lit a beautiful romance.

Princess Eugenie was just 19 at the time, in February 2010, and studying English, politics and history at Newcastle University.

With her own reputation for hard partying, the pair got on famously and forged a bond that even endured a period during which she worked in New York with art auctioneers Paddle8 in 2013.

The pair are said to have chatted over Skype to keep the fire burning despite being kept apart by thousands of miles and several hours-worth of time zone.

Jack also worked at the Admiral Codrington pub in Chelsea before going on to the Markham Inn where he spent three formative years.

He has spoken fondly of how much he learned from the "strange" and "demanding" Sloane ranger clientele.

It is said to have been there he met Prince Harry and club baron Guy Pelly, who hired him to manage at world famous, exclusive night spot Mahiki, in Mayfair.

Jack left in 2010 to start his own wine merchants and is now brand ambassador of Casamigos Tequila, co-founded by George Clooney.

When did Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank get engaged and when is their wedding?

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's engagement was announced by Buckingham Palace on January 22, 2018.

She'd got engaged to the tequila mogul in Nicaragua earlier that month.

The couple began dating in 2011 after they met while skiing in the Swiss resort of Verbier.

They are due to get married this autumn at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, the same venue as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The wedding will take place on October 12.

As she is currently ninth in line to the throne, The Queen's permission is not required for her to marry.
