“We couldn’t be more excited … well Mable might be ❤️,” he wrote.

“It was a very difficult start to the year after losing my beloved Ella however we will end the year with the most precious little addition to our growing family”.

Ella was James’ adorable black dog who sadly passed away in January 2023 from a “very short illness.”

It was Ella who introduced the now happy couple in 2018! After fate – or a dog – brought them together, the pair have been enjoying life together in the countryside.

In 2019, the couple got engaged and finally said “I do” in September 2021 after COVID-19 pandemic derailed their original plans. However, the stunning ceremony located in the south of France was the perfect intimate celebration.

Lady Tatiana Mountbatten – who is related to the British Royal Family – shared her excitement on James’ Instagram post.

With this new addition, the Middleton line is growing fast! Kate’s sister Pippa has three children Arthur, Grace and Rose with her husband, James Matthews.
