James Middleton, Kate’s brother, finally married the love of his life, Alizee Thevenet. And he could not be more excited!
Talking about Alizee, James gushed: “Yesterday I married the love of my life surrounded by family, friends and of course a few dogs in the beautiful village of Bormes-les-Mimosas. Words cannot describe how happy I am <3”
The couple met back in 2018 and it was actually James’ dog who made the introductions. While at the South Kensington Club, James’ support dog Ella decided to run up to Alizee and introduce herself. Embarrassed, the 34-year-old tried to pull his dog away but had no luck. It’s possible Ella knew that her owner needed to meet his future wife. Talk about kismet!
Since that first meeting, James and Alizee kept their relationship a secret from the public eye. Their first public appearance as a couple wasn’t until Spring 2019 when they attended Lady Gabriella Windsor’s wedding at Windsor Castle. Witnesses said the couple looked very much in love.
Alizee Thevenet might not have a famous sibling like her new husband, but she is pretty impressive. She is a financial analyst and director for TreasurySpring, which is a financial tech company based in London. She got her Master’s degree in Investment and Finance from Queen Mary University back in 2013 and according to her LinkedIn, she speaks three languages (French, Spanish, and English).
Like James, she loves dogs, and growing up she lived in six countries. She stayed in Germany, Indonesia, Chile, France, Belgium, and England. This was because her father, Jean-Gabriel Thevenet, was a French diplomat at the time.
When asked about his daughter’s new husband, Jean-Gabriel had only good things to say about James Middleton. He spoke to the DailyMail back in 2019 and said that “I am very happy that Alizee is together with James. I know she is very happy. We keep our fingers crossed for them… James and the Middleton family are very charming. We have a lot of admiration for the whole Middleton family—James, his sisters, and his parents.”
James proposed to Alizee in 2019 and they had to postpone their wedding two times because of the Covid-19 pandemic. In honor of his wife’s patience, James posted this message to his new bride on Instagram:
“It’s a year since I asked Alizee to marry me. What a year it’s been! Two homes, lockdown, two attempts at a wedding, a litter of puppies, launching of new company @ella.co, a beard shave, and much more but the best part is that I get to share it with you @alizeethevenet and I can’t wait to take on whatever the future holds for us. We managed to escape to Italy for a quick dip in the sea, lots of food and wine & and now ready to face the world again- thank you @theclassicyachtexperience for the most unforgettable experience.”
According to witnesses, their wedding was attended by Kate Middleton, Prince William, and their children, along with other family members on both sides of the aisle. The bride looked beautiful in her dress and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this special couple.
