Princess Eugenie wears heart on her hat at garden party

Princess Eugenie was brimming with emotions during a Buckingham Palace garden party - wearing a hat decorated with the word "love".

Eugenie is due to marry fiance Jack Brookbank in the autumn and appeared to be making an emotional statement with her unusual headgear.

She wore a dark-coloured dress during the garden party hosted by the Queen, and a matching hat, which had the word 'love' above the brim.

Eugenie and long-term partner Jack announced their engagement in January and the pair revealed they decided to wed during a private holiday in Nicaragua the same month.

The princess began dating the brand ambassador of Casamigos Tequila about seven years ago after they met while skiing near the Swiss resort of Verbier.
