Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank will totally change their lives. The second daughter of Prince Andrew will leave the United Kingdom, part of her time, now making regular commutes between England and Portugal. Her husband will work in Portugal, where he has landed a very good job with George Clooney’s partners.

Princess Eugenie, 12th in the order of succession to the British throne, has moved with her husband to Frogmore Cottage, an outbuilding of the Frogmore estate, located next to the Windsor estate. It is the official residence of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the United Kingdom. The residence is free throughout the year, since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle bought a villa in Montecito, California, the son of the Prince of Wales lends his home to his cousin.
At the same time, we learn that Prince Harry has indeed renewed his lease at Forgmore Cottage, which will allow Princess Eugenie to continue to live there, according to the arrangement made with her cousin. She had moved there a few months before the birth of August Brooksbank, her first child born in February 2021. From now on, she will live there much less often because her husband is moving to Portugal.

The British press explains that Princess Eugenie of York, 32, does not give up her work in London. She is the director of the art gallery Hauser & Wirth. She will arrange her time differently. She will stay at Frogmore while in England and then move to her new home in Portugal.
According to The Telegraph, which broke the news, the family will move into a villa at the CostaTerra Golf and Ocean Club, a luxury vacation home complex located an hour south of Lisbon, overlooking the Atlantic coast.
Until now, Jack Brooksbank, 36, worked for the tequila brand Casamigos, created by George Clooney and two partners, Rande Gerber (businessman husband of Cindy Crawford) and Mike Meldman (a real estate magnate). The three partners sold Casamigos to spirits giant Diageo, in 2017, for $1 billion according to La Revue du Vin.
Now, it is with George Clooney’s partner Mike Meldman that Jack Brooksbank is pursuing his professional career. He joined the real estate development company Discovery Land Company, which created the CostaTerra resort in Portugal in 2019. George Clooney himself plans to buy land in this complex to house his wife Amal and twins, Ella and Alexander.
Mike Meldman bought the 292-hectare oceanfront property in 2019 for more than 500 million euros to turn it into a rest and vacation spot for the wealthy. As many as 146 single-family homes have been built on the estate and more are still under construction. The location includes a very large golf course, an equestrian center and various shops and wellness areas.
“The combination of our unparalleled, environmentally friendly setting, a family-oriented experience-based lifestyle and exclusivity make our properties a rare opportunity in Europe,” reads the TerraCosta estate website.
