How sad for Jack. He's not only grieving but now he's going through an important milestone and his father is missing it. Must be very difficult.

No wonder Jack was looking unhappy yesterday, and at the wedding last month. A very sad year for both Jack and Eugenie.

He was only 72.

George Edward Hugh Brooksbank 1949-2021

George Edward Hugh Brooksbank, who has died aged 72, was a scion of the Brooksbank landed gentry family, of Healaugh, Tadcaster, and father-in-law of Princess Eugenie.

He died just days before the christening at Windsor of his grandson, August, son of Princess Eugenie and his son, Jack, who was born in February.

Mr Brooksbank, whon had homes in Wandsworth, London, and Bordeaux, France, had been in poor health after spending weeks in intensive care with coronavirus at the start of the pandemic in April.

He was born 8 February, 1949, son of Stamp Godfrey Brooksbank [1922-2017], and his wife the former Celia Dorothy Coke [1919-96], scion of the Earls of Leicester.

He was a grandson maternally of Maj Sir John Spencer Coke, KCVO [1880-1957], a courtier, who served as Gentleman Usher to King George VI.

The Brooksbank family, long seated at Healaugh, Tadcaster, co York, have a line of descent from the Earls of Harewood. The landed gentry family received a baronetcy in 1919.

The Old Etonian married in 1985, Nicola Newton [born 1953], daughter of Michael Anthony Fendall Newton [1923-2006], of Balcombe, West Sussex, a descendant of the Meyrick baronets, by his wife the former Joanna Holland, descended from the Houssemayne du Boulay landed gentry family.

George Brooksbank, a retired chartered accountant and company director, is survived by his wife, and two sons, Jack [born 1986], and Thomas [born 1988], and two grandchildren, Wilfred [born in 2020 to Thomas and his wife Amy], and August [born in 2021, to Jack and Princess Eugenie].

The DM picked up the story, which kept referring to Eugenie's "auburn locks."  They really do hire dumb people to write their "stories," don't they?

Congrats on your 3000 post !  Jumping



For once, I notice in time someone reaching a milestone.  Tongue


It's a relief to see the Queen out and about, I hope she'll feel better soon.

I hope we'll get a pic of HM with her grand-daughters and great-grand-sons with their dads.  Icecream

Terrible. I feel for them having such heavy hearts at that christening.

He never fully recovered from his battle against covid, from what I have read. At the time, he was hospitalized with several covid and was ventilated for several days, the family was actually told that he could not make and they should prepare for the worse. He did manage to beat it and go home but is health was never the same, he was very debilitated Sad

One article that I read said he was hospitalized for a total of 9 weeks with 5 of them spent on a ventilator.  It was basically a miracle that he recovered at all and I’m sure the family was incredibly grateful for the extra time the had with him…not that his death is any less devastating.

How very sad. Did Beatrice' father in law also have Covid, or did I mix that up?

It is also unfortunate that George Brooksbank's demise occurred shortly before Christmas. Christmas is a time of joy and happiness.

It also must be tough seeing your wife's grandmother outlive your own father by at least twenty years. Sad At least it would be hard for me.

Until I lost my own dad a few years ago I had no idea how devastating it is to lose a parent as an adult. I naively hoped it wouldn't be nearly as hard as it is, perhaps because at a certain point people stop saying "but he died so young."  I'm sorry Jack is facing this at Christmas, too.  Although there's no good time for it. 

I don't have any idea about his religious beliefs, but since he is getting his child christened, hopefully words were spoken at the christening that gave him hope and peace.
