“We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement. We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to be married," the couple said in a joint statement.

The pair are planning to wed in 2020, although no further details of the upcoming nuptials have been given at this time.

Princess Beatrice, 31, is the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. She made her first public appearance with businessman Mapelli Mozzi at the National Portrait Gallery's 2019 Gala earlier this year. The pair also attended the wedding of Ella Windsor together.

Princess Beatrice follows in the footsteps of sister Princess Eugenie, who married Jack Brookshank in October last year.
