Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have welcomed their first child, a baby boy.

Kensington Palace announced the news in a statement on Tuesday, saying that Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, and Eugenie's parents were "delighted with the news."

Here's a look back at Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank's royal romance.

2010: Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank met in Verbier, a ski resort in Switzerland popular with royals, through mutual friends.

Eugenie, the youngest daughter of the Queen's son Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, was 20 years old and Brooksbank was 24. He told the BBC that it was "love at first sight."

2011: They attended Royal Ascot together, their first royal event as a couple.

Kate Middleton was only invited to the horse race after marrying Prince William in 2011. Since Eugenie isn't a full-fledged working royal, she was able to bring a date who wasn't a spouse.

2012: They hit the red carpet at the UK premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises."

Though Eugenie isn't a full-time princess, she still frequents royal engagements such as charity events and red carpets.

2013: When Eugenie moved to New York, she and Brooksbank continued to date long distance.

Eugenie moved to New York City to work for the auction house Paddle8 in Little Italy. Brooksbank remained in London, working as the manager of Mahiki, a club and cocktail bar.

"We spend a lot of time on Skype," Brooksbank told the Daily Mail in 2013. "It's great. We are still very much together."

2014: They found time to attend Wimbledon together.

Eugenie decided to attend Wimbledon in 2014 at the last minute in order to support competitor Eugenie Bouchard, who is named for the princess and expressed the desire to meet her, according to The Telegraph. Plus, she got to see her beau.

2015: Eugenie moved back to London.

In a 2016 interview with Harper's Bazaar, Eugenie mentioned Brooksbank while talking about her daily life in London, including their favorite TV shows.

"When I'm with Jack, we watch 'The Walking Dead,' which we're obsessed with. Maybe 'Game of Thrones' is our next thing," she said.

She also told the magazine that they enjoy going out for dinner and trying new restaurants.

September 2016: Brooksbank joined the royal family at Balmoral Castle to celebrate Prince Harry's 32nd birthday, sparking engagement rumors.

"You could call this weekend a rite of passage for Jack," a source told Express in 2016. "There is no way he would be invited to stay with the queen unless he was being welcomed into the royal fold and the bosom of the family."

Brooksbank proposed while they were overlooking a lake at sunset while on vacation in Nicaragua.

"The lake was so beautiful," Eugenie told the BBC of the moment he proposed. "The light was just a special light I had never seen. I actually said this is an incredible moment, and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we have been together seven years. I was over the moon."

Before they announced their engagement, the couple moved to Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace.

October 2018: The couple wed at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same place where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle held their wedding.
