Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank may be getting ready to become first-time parents in the coming weeks, but Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter is also reflecting on their engagement.

The royal, 30, shared a sweet photo with her now-husband from their 2018 engagement interview on her Instagram page.

"This time 3 years ago.. flashback to such a happy moment when Jack and I announced our engagement," Eugenie captioned the never-before-seen photo, in which Jack smiles at the camera while she presses her nose against his cheek.

In the snap, the couple is dressed in the same clothes they wore for their televised interview with BBC 1's Matt Baker following their engagement announcement. Jack sported a suit and red tie that complemented Eugenie's floral Erdem dress (which she had previously worn for a 2016 interview with Harper's Bazaar).

Of course, all eyes were on Princess Eugenie's dazzling pink sapphire engagement ring.

Eugenie, who is one of the most active royals on social media, shared her exciting baby news on Instagram in September. She posted a photo holding a fluffy pair of mini slippers, writing, "Jack and I are so excited for early 2021....👶🏻."

A friend of the couple previously told PEOPLE that Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter, 30, will take after her mother Sarah Ferguson's parenting style.

"Eugenie is such a fun person but very thoughtful too," the source said. "I think she will be more of a bohemian parent, a bit like her mom, while Jack will be calm and chilled."
