The Duchess of Cambridge’s younger brother James Middleton announced his engagement to girlfriend of one year Alizee Thevenet yesterday.

The news was confirmed yesterday through an Instagram post shared by Middleton to his 151,000 followers.

“She said OUI,” read the caption. “Our secret is out but we couldn’t be happier to share the news”.

It comes after the 32-year-old entrepreneur quietly made his Instagram public earlier this year, giving the public an introduction to his other half and now fiancée.

Middleton shared a snap of his girlfriend Alizee Thevenet laughing as his golden retriever Mabel leaps into a swimming pool, adding “caption this.”

The couple have reportedly dating for over a year, having met in a bar in London in the summer of 2018, according to Mail Online.

Her father Jean-Gabriel Thevenet told the newspaper that his daughter speaks three languages and has been living and working in London for around six years.

According to Town & Country, Alizee holds a Master's degree in Investment and Finance from Queen Mary University of London.

James and Alizee were first spotted together when they went to the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund’s Christmas Carol Service.

They were then seen on holiday with the Middletons in St. Barts, along with James’s sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews.

The pair made their public debut at Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston’s wedding in May at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

Alizee looked chic in an affordable £49.99 H&M wrap dress for the formal occasion, while James wore a traditional morning suit.

And last summer, the happy couple were spotted at Wimbledon, watching the action alongside Pippa and Carole Middleton.
