"Then, when I start to continue cooking … the nerves are gone because I am so absorbed in what I am doing and I love it so much … I feel very honored that they have chosen me" to do it. "
Eugenie, 28, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and her ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, will marry Brooksbank, 32, at the Queen's house at Windsor Castle, west of London.
