His hobbies are mainly sporting, including skiing, tennis and football – he is a keen Chelsea FC supporter. He loves watching live sporting events, as well as visiting the theatre and cinema. Jack and his family used to go annually to Cornwall where Jack would enthusiastically surf, rock climb and swim in the sea. When he was about 10 years old the family bought a holiday home in France and he has been going there ever since.
Since meeting Princess Eugenie he has developed a keen interest in contemporary art and, whenever possible, will attend functions with her and is learning a great deal about art.
Jack also supports Princess Eugenie in her charitable works, of which there are many, and helps her with her ever increasing workload. His father is Executive Director of a charity called Supporting Wounded Veterans, which helps veterans rebuild their futures through a unique, specially designed, ski-based development programme. Over the past five years Jack has supported the charity in as many ways as he can.
