Here's What Jack Brooksbank Said When He First Saw Princess Eugenie in Her Wedding Dress

According to a lip reader

Updated 10/12/18


Princess Eugenie got married to Jack Brooksbank on Friday, which means royal lip readers everywhere were out in full force. Since none of us made the extensive guest list, let’s try and piece together the sweet nothings that were whispered between the two—with the help of trained experts to find out what Brooksbank said to his bride as she walked down the aisle. The Daily Mail consulted a lip reader who contends that a visibly nervous Jack said, “Oh, my heart ... oh, break my heart,” when he saw Eugenie in her wedding dress for the first time.

And once Eugenie reached her now-husband at the altar, things got even more romantic when Brooksbank whispered the words "You look perfect," to his bride, according to The Sun. We're not crying, you're crying...

At another point in the ceremony, according to Vogue, Brooksbank was also seen removing his glasses—which he allegedly wore to get a clear glimpse of his bride—to wipe away some tears. He was also probably a little short of breath, after seeing his bride in her stunning bespoke gown, which was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. The gown was specifically designed to show Eugenie’s spinal scars, which were a result of a surgery she underwent to treat a curvature in her spine when she was 12.

"I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you'll see on Friday [at the wedding], but it's a lovely way to honor the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this," Eugenie told ITV's This Morning prior to the wedding. "I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it's really special to stand up for that."

Congratulations, you two.
