In the photo, the couple are on a hill in England’s Lake District, which just so happens to be the same region where Pippa Middleton’s now-husband James Matthews proposed to her in 2016.
The happy news from the couple was initially revealed by Daily Mail reporter Richard Eden on Saturday after he spoke with the couple’s friends.
“I can reveal that James is to wed his French girlfriend, Alizee Thevenet,” Richard wrote, adding that the bride-to-be has been spotted wearing a “beautiful sapphire sparkler”.
The couple met in the sweetest way, after a friend revealed that Thevenet had no idea who Middleton was. They struck up a conversation about Middleton’s cocker spaniel named Ella.
“After Alizee went back to her table, James asked the waiter to give her a note saying: ‘I never normally do this, but would you like to go for a drink with me?’ He also picked up their tab. A few weeks later, they went out for a drink together.”
Congratulations to the happy couple on their engagement!
