The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their children to the Cote d’Azur to see James Middleton marry his French fiancée at their secret wedding over the weekend, MailOnline can reveal today. 

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were with their parents Kate and Prince William to watch their uncle James wed Alizee Thevenet in the village of Bormes-les-Mimosas on Saturday.

But the future king and queen, and their royal children, weren’t the guests of honour – the couple’s dogs were – with golden retriever Mabel even photobombing the wedding pictures. Mr Middleton, 34, wrote on Instagram: ‘Yesterday I married the love of my life surrounded by family, friends and of course a few dogs.’

The couple got engaged in September 2019 but had to delay the ceremony twice in the last year due to Covid.

Mr Middleton and Miss Thevenet, a trilingual French financial analyst, also in her 30s, met in 2018 when his cocker spaniel, Ella, approached her at a private members’ club in London.

France is on the UK’s amber list so Kate and William, who are vaccinated, must get tested on or before the second day after returning. George and Charlotte also face a PCR test – but Louis, who is under 5, is exempt.

The five Cambridges attended the event, along with James’ other sister, socialite Pippa, and her businessman husband James Matthews. Their parents Carole and Michael Middleton, and James beloved dogs, Luna and Mabel, are also thought to have watched them walk down the aisle.

Announcing his marriage with a picture of him and bride Alizée on Instagram yesterday evening, James said: ‘Words cannot describe how happy I am.’   

The entrepreneur, 34, who is the younger brother of the Duchess of Cambridge, revealed he had tied the knot on Saturday with Alizee Thevene 'surrounded by family and friends'

The British businessman whose sister is married to the future king: Who is James Middleton? 

James, 34, is the youngest of the three Middleton siblings, after his eldest sister, Kate, 39, and Pippa, 38. 

He was watched by millions around the world as he delivered a reading from the Bible at Kate and Prince William’s 2011 wedding.

James grew up with his two sisters in Berkshire to parents Michael Middleton and wife Carole Goldman, both of whom are successful entrepreneurs.

James, like his two sisters, attended the private boarding school St Andrew’s School, in Pangbourne, Berkshire, before moving to Marlborough College in Wiltshire. 

Alongside Boomf, James launched Ella & Co, a mail order dog food company that offers freeze-dried, raw, organic dog food in May last year.

 He is also a mental health advocate. In 2019, in a first person piece published in the Daily Mail, he wrote passionately about his private battle with the depression – which he described as a ‘cancer of the mind’.

James had up until recently been living with Alizée in his parents’ £4.7million Georgian manor house in the Berkshire village of Bucklebury.

However he announced earlier this year that they had bought a £1.45million property in the same village, having earlier been spotted viewing properties in south-west London – near to the home of his sister Pippa.

It comes after James revealed last year that he and Alizée had been forced to postpone their wedding twice because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The couple, who met in 2018 and who announced their engagement in 2019, had originally planned to get married in May last year.

But they were twice forced to push back the date. He said in a post on Instagram in September last year: ‘It’s a year since I asked Alizée to marry me… what a year it’s been!

‘Two homes, lockdown, two attempts at a wedding, a litter of [dog emoji], 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.’ 

However the wedding did go ahead this time in Alizée’s native France, which is currently on the the UK’s amber travel list.

It means the couple and their guests from the UK will need to take a Covid test two days after their arrival back in Britain, if they are double vaccinated. 

Those who aren’t double vaccinated will have to self-isolate for 10 days on their arrival back in the UK. 

James, founder of British greetings card firm Boomf, first met Alizée in 2018, in private members club, the South Kensington Club, in Chelsea.

He told the Telegraph they met when his beloved dog Ella ‘made a beeline’ for Alizée while she was relaxing in the £3,500-a-year club. 

He said: ‘The two of us (Ella and me) were at the South Kensington Club in Chelsea. Ella was lying at my feet under the table; realising she might want some water, I trusted her to take herself over to the water bowl across the terrace.   

‘However, she made a beeline for Alizée. Rather embarrassed, I went over to apologise and bring Ella back.

‘But Alizée thought I was the waiter and ordered her drink while continuing to stroke Ella, who at this point was on her back lapping up the attention.

‘Little did I know, but I had just met my future wife, all thanks to Ella. If I hadn’t trusted Ella, I wouldn’t have brought her to the South Kensington Club and she wouldn’t have been able to say hi to the woman who became my fiancée.’

After more than a year of dating, the couple announced their engagement in September 2019.  James is believed to have proposed during a trip in the Lake District. 

Alizée was seen in a picture shared on his Instagram with a stunning sapphire ring on her finger.

The couple were last pictured together at the Bvlgari Magnifica Gala dinner at Spencer House in St James’, London, in June.

Who is Alizée Thevenet?

Alizée Thevenet is a French financial analyst who is married to James Middleton – the younger brother of the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.

She was born in France but lived in various countries, including Germany, Indonesia, Chile, Belgium and England, during her early years.

As well as French, she also speaks English and Spanish.

She has a degree in Finance from Brussels University, and an Investment and Finance Masters from Queen Mary University of London.

She has worked in the finance sector for the last six years.

She met James Middleton in the luxury private members club  the South Kensington Club, in Chelsea, in 2018.

James told the Telegraph last year that they began speaking after his dog ‘made a beeline’ for her at the club and she at first mistook him as a waiter.

After more than a year of dating, the couple announced their engagement in 2019. James reportedly proposed during a trip to the Lake District.

He is also a mental health advocate. In 2019, in a first person piece published in the Daily Mail, he wrote passionately about his private battle with the depression – which he described as a ‘cancer of the mind’.

Earlier this year it was revealed that James and Alizée had snapped up the Middleton’s fourth property in the Berkshire village of Bucklebury, for £1.45 million.

The property is four-bedroom Grade II listed period farmhouse with beams and leaded windows in a village on the Bucklebury fringes.

Parents Carole and Michael live in a £4.7million Georgian manor house in the same village, while sister Pippa recently bought Bucklebury Farm Park, a petting zoo which is a favourite of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. 

James had previously been staying at his parents’ home throughout lockdown with Alizée. 

His parent’s Georgian pile is the former family seat of a family whose ancestors were granted the land by Henry VIII. It is set in 18 acres of landscaped grounds with views across a picturesque valley.

Speaking about the move to his new home, he said in a post on Instagram: ‘Think buying a house is up there with one of the most stressful experiences in my life.

‘It’s been a hectic few months moving in to our new home & we couldn’t be happier. We are settling into our life in the country and the dogs their new home.’

Earlier this year, while speaking to The Telegraph, James declared he and Alizée were ‘country people’.

Prior to the move into the new house, he said he was looking forward to being ‘reunited with our belongings, which have been in storage for almost a year now’.

The pair had earlier in the year been seen house-hunting in south-West London, just a stone’s throw from the home his sister Pippa shares with her husband and two children. 

At Easter, James shared snaps to Instagram from a garden showcasing four out of six of his beloved dogs alongside his pet rabbit Pretzel. 

He shared the photographs to promote a training video posted on the social media account for his pet supplies company Ella & Co.

The caption read: ‘Happy Easter from my family to yours. Many of you don’t know I have a rabbit called Pretzel and is really important for me all my animals get along. 

‘I’ve made a little training video on how I introduce my dogs to other animals over at @ella.co starting Pretzel and Daphne.’

In April, James revealed he has adopted a blind lamb in a touching Instagram post celebrating his 34th birthday.

The entrepreneur said he was celebrating his birthday with Alizée, his dogs and a lamb, who he said was ‘a new member of the pack’.

In one snap posted on his own page, James could be seen hanging out of a window, with Ella and the new lamb, Captain, who he said he adopted after he was rejected by his mother.

In another photo, posted on his company’s Instagram, James can be seen smiling and being showered in confetti as he sat next to Ella, while the pair wore matching blue birthday hats.

The final snap showed four dogs, a golden retriever, two black cocker spaniels and a brown spaniel, as well as Captain in a dog bed.

Alongside the series of snaps, posted in April, James wrote: ‘Today is my Birthday and I’m celebrating with my wonderful fiancee Alizee, and of course all the dogs and a new member of the pack.

‘I always reflect on my Birthday and I’m truly so thankful to Ella for bringing me so much happiness into my life.’

‘She was the one who introduced me to Alizee, she supported me during my experience with clinical depression, she has kept my young & active and is the driving force behind my motivation to launch @ella.co.

‘So you might be wondering why there is a little lamb in the photo… well Captain is partially blind and rejected by his mother so we’ve adopted him… although I think he now thinks he’s a spaniel.’

The très chic life of James Middleton’s bride: Kate Middleton’s new sister-in-law Alizee Thevenet is French finance guru with a diplomat father who grew up all over the world (and is no stranger to an Instagram bikini snap!)

It was revealed yesterday that Kate Middleton’s brother James had tied the knot with Alizée Thevenet in an intimate ceremony in France

The entrepreneur, 34, who is the younger brother of the Duchess of Cambridge, revealed he had wed the 32-year-old French finance expert on Saturday ‘surrounded by family and friends’.  

Alizée, who has lived and worked in London for several years, is currently a director at TreasurySpring, a fin tech firm that uses digital pipelines to connect cash rich firms to institutional borrowers.

She’s the daughter of retired diplomat Jean-Gabriel Thevenet, who lives in Paris and is currently pursuing a career as a writer and poet, and shared a close relationship with both parents.

James has previously described how Alizee had helped to transform his life following crippling depression. 

The couple met at the private South Kensington Club in 2018 when James’s cocker spaniel, Ella, bounded over to Alizee. 

They were first seen together at the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund’s Christmas Carol Service at St. Luke’s Church 

The following month, they were spotted vacationing in St. Barts along with James’s sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews.

James and Alizee recently snapped up a property in Berkshire village of Bucklebury, for £1.45 million. It’s a four-bedroom Grade II listed period farmhouse with beams and leaded windows in a village on the Bucklebury fringes. 

It means Kate’s family are all now near-neighbours, with parents Carole and Michael living in a £4.7 million Georgian manor house in the village, while her sister Pippa recently bought Bucklebury Farm Park, a petting zoo which is a favourite of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. 

After more than a year of dating, the couple announced their engagement in September 2019. James is believed to have proposed during a trip in the Lake District.

His parents Carole and Michael Middleton, and his beloved dogs, Luna and Mabel, are also thought to have attended. 

It comes after James revealed last year that he and Alizée had been forced to postpone their wedding twice because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The couple, who met in 2018 and who announced their engagement in 2019, had originally planned to get married in May last year.
