Princess Eugenie is expected to be overjoyed after her close friend announces he's got engaged.

Princess Eugenie is expected to be overjoyed with the news that one of her wedding dress designers and close friend Zac Posen has got engaged to be married.

The American fashion designer, who designed Princess Eugenie's blush pink second bridal dress announced the happy news on his Instagram.

He uploaded a series of snaps of the couple and his engagement ring and captioned it, "Engaged 💍 8.8.22 @__harrisonball__ 🤍"

Meanwhile, his fiancé and ballet dancer Harrison Ball shared a sweet snap of them stood between cupid arrows during a trip to Arizona. He captioned it, "💍🤵🏼‍♂️🤵🏻‍♂️ GETTING HITCHED - CUPIDS ARROW(S) 💘

Princess Beatrice who is married to Jack Brooksbank is yet to publicly congratulate the couple but she is expected to feel joyous.

According to Hello! expert Jenny Luker thinks the ring is estimated to be worth $5k (£4.1k). 

Zac who has just released his own "inclusive" wedding ring collection with Blue Nile revealed that his new venture was "purposefully designed to represent love, regardless of gender."

Zac previously shared his joy over creating Princess Eugenie's second wedding dress. For her birthday back in 2019, he shared, "Every now and then you meet somebody who just knocks your socks off. This last year I got to know a young lady who possessed natural elegance, a heart of gold and sophisticated humour. My studio and I had the honour (and the best time) collaborating with her on her special gown. Best of all she is dedicated to using her privilege to help our world and its people with her project @the_anti_slavery_collective. Happy Birthday! @princesseugenie ✨"

And it looks like Princess Eugenie and Zac enjoy a special friendship bond, as she later revealed the inspiration for the gown was Grace Kelly in the 1955 film To Catch a Thief, and brought her idea to Zac.

He delivered exactly what she wanted, "Every single draping effect, every single detail, every button, it’s all painstakingly done by him and his team," she said, adding that Zac was "a cool, fun, brilliant designer and friend."
