Besides giving a super-important presentation at work, we can't think of anything more nerve-wracking than meeting your future in-laws. Knowing how terrifying it can be, we especially feel for Princess Eugenie's fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, right about now. Not only are his soon-to-be in-laws also British royalty, but, as Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson proved in , they're also quite the pranksters.
While chatting on BBC's (an interview you can watch if you live in the U.K.), the Duchess of York recalled a hilarious story about how her ex-husband Prince Andrew once scared Jack silly.
The two — despite being divorced for 22 years — live together at the Royal Lodge in Windsor and share a dog whose name also happens to be Jack. So when Eugenie's fiancé entered a room where Jack the dog was present, Andrew, in total dad fashion, couldn't resist messing with him.
Haha, yes! This is where Andrew is brilliant, you see. 'Cause he goes 'JACK, GET OFF THAT CHAIR!' So Jack, our Jack, the son-in-law Jack, jumps up and goes [makes frantic yelling noise] 'Ahh, what have I done now?!'
Aww, poor Jack (that is, the son-in-law Jack). Sounds like he better brace himself for lots of jokes for being the new guy in the fam.
Based on this hilarious tale and the fact that Sarah called Andrew "brilliant," Fergie and her ex appear to get along pretty well these days. Her attitude about Andrew in the interview seems to reflect about how close the two remain.
“The thing about Andrew and I is that we go with our hearts,” she said when talking about her approach to royal life. “We go with the family. Unity: We really believe in that. You can see that in the York family, the unity. And it's all about seeing the light in life. "
As for Eugenie's future husband, who will officially become part of the family come October 12, 2018, Sarah had nothing but nice things to say about him as well.
"Jack is a really amazing sort of bringer of light," Fergie disclosed about her future son-in-law.
Sounds like Jack has absolutely nothing to worry about — well, besides the occasional practical joke.
