Jack Brooksbank will remain a 'commoner' after he marries Princess Eugenie.

Eugenie, 28, who is ninth in line of succession to the British throne, is all set to tie the knot on October 12, 2018, with her boyfriend Jack, 32. However, her future husband will not receive a royal title.

As reported by Daily Mail, Eugenie's father, the Duke of York, has officially announced that Jack, who was previously in the running for the vacant Northallerton earldom, won't receive this upgrade from Queen Elizabeth II.

That means Eugenie will be known as Her Royal Highness, Princess Eugenie, Mrs. Jack Brooksbank.

But according to a source close to the family, the Queen’s granddaughter is not bothered one way or the other. She has actually resisted special treatment.

"Eugenie couldn’t care less about titles and is perfectly happy to be Mrs. Brooksbank," the source said.

Jack, whose great-grandfather was an equerry to Queen Mary, is from one of the oldest and wealthiest families in Britain.

Eugenie, on the other hand, is considered by Buckingham Palace to be a ‘private individual.’ The princess' name doesn’t appear in the court circular.

The loved-up couple has turned their attention to wedding preparations now that the business of future titles was sorted, as reported by Martha Stewart Weddings.

Eugenie and Jack, a former bar manager, have been spending some extra time nailing down their guest list as they approach their October wedding.

Their guest list is set to include 1,200 members of the public. The wedding will take place at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Just like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Eugenie and Jack will depart St. George's Chapel in a carriage for their grand exit.

On January 22, 2018, Eugenie and Jack's engagement was announced by the Duke of York's Office at Buckingham Palace.
