Must love dogs: The unique story behind James Middleton and Alizee Thevenet's relationship

A chance encounter changed everything.

By Jess Pullar
Seriously, can James Middleton and Alizee Thevenet get any cooler?
Despite keeping their relationship largely low-key, the sophisticated pair have piqued our interest for very obvious reasons.
Firstly, James just so happens to be the younger brother of Duchess Catherine, AKA the future Queen Consort of England.
That in itself gives rise for our ears to perk up at the mention of his name.
Secondly, the youngest Middleton leads quite the colourful life.
Being one of the only people in the royal circles to have his own Instagram, we've grown well accustomed to seeing his sweet, pup-clad updates as he shares some of his insights and philosophical musings with the world.
And thirdly (and perhaps most importantly), his new wife Alizee Thevenet is the definition of a cool-girl.
Seriously, the French native personifies that aspirational, je ne sais quoi European demeanour like a certified pro.
What with her chic style, easy-going nature, not to mention being incredibly switched on (she's a financial analyst, might we add).
While the pair's nuptials were delayed due to the current global pandemic, the duo finally made it to the altar in September 2021 for a casual ceremony in France.
Here, we take a look back at their relationship timeline - right from that fateful first meeting.
