Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has come to the defense of her son-in-law, Jack Brooksbank, who has landed in a controversy after his photos next to bikini-clad women appeared in the tabloids.
Ferguson, whose daughter, Princess Eugenie, has been married to Brooksbank since 2018, said that her son-in-law is one of her favorite people in the world. The Duchess of York said that Brooksbank is a man of integrity who is a lot like James Bond in her eyes.
She also said that Brooksbank is a "superhero," a "great father," a "fabulous husband" to Princess Eugenie, and their son, August Philip. The 61-year-old grandmother, who used to be married to Prince Andrew, said that the photos of her son-in-law in the tabloids had stories that were completely fabricated.
The 35-year-old dad was on a boat with many sexy women -- one of whom was topless -- because he was working. Princess Eugenie's husband is an ambassador for the tequila brand, Casamigos, which recently hosted a Unicef Summer Gala in Italy. Actor George Clooney and Rande Gerber co-founded Casamigos, and Brooksbank worked for them even before he married a royal.
Ferguson also said that she had known her son-in-law for more than a decade, so she treats him like her very own. She said she had to speak up for her son-in-law's sake because it could impact his job.
Swimming With the Girls
Daily Mail reported that Brooksbank was with gorgeous women like Erica Pelosini, Maria Buccellati, and Rachel Zaliz aboard a luxury boat. Zalis, the woman pictured topless, is his co-worker at Casamigos as the brand's global director.
However, the report suggested that Eugenie's husband was having a good time with the women while the princess remained in London to take care of their son. Eugenie gave birth to their firstborn, August, in February 2021 and sources told the tabloid that she didn't want to join Brooksbank because it was a work event.
Eugenie and her husband had plans for August's christening last July but had to postpone the occasion because their guests had to self-isolate. Buckingham Palace did not issue any comments about the couple's christening plans or Brooksbank's controversial photos.
Sarah Knew First
When Eugenie and Brooksbank met at a Swiss resort town more than ten years ago, Ferguson was the first to know that her daughter was smitten. They were only 20 and 24 years old when they fell in love.
Brooksbank has been part of the York family since then. In a previous interview with BBC, the Duchess of York described her daughter's future husband as an "amazing bringer of light." Ferguson also supported Brooksbank's choice to work for Casamigos, then as the brand's European manager.
Despite their long-distance relationship for a few years, Eugenie and Brooksbank made their relationship work. She was staying in New York in 2013 for her job at an auction house, and friends revealed that they often Skyped with each other because Brooksbank was not the "jet-setty type." He was raised by simple parents who worked as an accountant and a director of a company.
Eugenie, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, is not a working royal and has a private income and private lifestyle. Because she's still part of the British royals, her life and her marriage to Brooksbank have been scrutinized by the press.
