After a year of Jack Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie‘s engagement, Jack’s nanny Joanna Newton had an unusual reaction to it. Of course, the 91-year-old was absolutely happy for the two of them. But she added that Jack was not so intelligent. She said that he was ordinary. She told Daily Mail:

“I never thought he would get married to a Royal. He’s a charming boy and all that but not the most intelligent and I would never have thought this would happen.”

“I would call him ordinary, I wouldn’t say there is anything special about him, he’s a good-looking, nice chap and I think it says a lot about Eugenie that it’s him she wants and it’s lovely.”
