Well, well, well, 2018 is shaping up to be quite the year — for the younger members of the British royal family, that is. Two months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement, comes more low-key yet still exciting news to celebrate: Princess Eugenie and her longtime beau, Jack Brooksbank, are also getting married. And not just in the same year, but in the same place. Dun-dun-duuuuuuuuuun.

Buckingham Palace released the official statement Monday morning, adding that they got engaged while on holidays in Nicaragua earlier this month.

The couple, who were introduced through friends during a ski trip in 2010, will wed in the fall at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, the same venue where Harry and Megs will tie the knot.

Shortly after their announcement, Eugenie and Jack posed for their official engagement photos, which were taken in the Picture Gallery in Buckingham Palace.

But it’s the ring — a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds — that we can’t take our eyes off of.

The Duke and Duchess of York are “delighted” by the news, with Prince Andrew “absolutely overjoyed” and “thrilled” for his youngest daughter, and calling Jack an “outstanding man.” He added that Jack’s parents, Nicole and George Brooksbank, are “completely over the moon” for the couple.

But it’s Sarah Ferguson who took her excitement to a whole other mom level, tweeting pics of the happy couple in rapid succession.

Congrats to the happy couple! And their loving parents.
