Companies House accounts show that Jack Brooksbank’s wine merchant business is off to a slow start – profits topped just over £14,000 in its first year of trading.
When he started the business it prompted speculation that Jack was looking to get a sensible job in preparation for life as a member of the Royal Family. Previously he was a bar manager at West End nightclub Mahiki.

Still, it is perhaps fortunate that Sir Richard Branson has offered Jack and Eugenie a free honeymoon on his rebuilt Caribbean hideaway Necker Island.
Whispers reach me that the couple, who are due to marry on October 12, have been told they can stay at the retreat before it reopens on October 20. The resort is currently closed to guests after being hit by Hurricane Irma last September.
