Lady Amelia Spencer, the niece of Princess Diana, has shared some rare insights into her engagement with her brand new fiance Greg Mallett after the pair partook in their first official magazine photoshoot together.
The pair announced their engagement back in July after being together for 11 years, with Greg sharing the news on his Instagram page.
"So this was the best day of my life. 22nd of July 2020, I asked the love of my life to spend the rest of her life with me and she said YES," he wrote.
The pair have been the image of excitement since.
After commenting on Greg's announcement post "I couldn't love you more. Happiest day of my life!", Amelia and her husband-to-be look set to ring in their new chapter of marriage in the best way possible.

In an official interview and photo shoot with HELLO!, the first magazine exclusive they've ever given together, Greg revealed how the engagement went down.
"I had one big pink box, inside which I put in eight smaller boxes, decreasing in size," he told them.
"In each box was a photograph of a 'first time'. The final box contained a note instead of a picture, that said: 'But most importantly, I know that you will remember tonight as the night that I proposed.' As Amelia was reading the note, I dropped to one knee with the ring."

Amelia said she "burst out crying" when she saw Greg on one knee.
"I was in shock, I said: 'Yes, yes, yes!' and gave him a hug and a kiss. I'm used to Greg being very romantic but I really had no idea."

Amelia is in good stead to plan her wedding, she herself is a wedding planner, and will likely be busy already planning the big day.
And of course, it'll no doubt include tributes for those who sadly can't be there to celebrate with her - including Amelia's aunt Diana.
Amelia was just five years old when the People's Princess passed away, but she still keeps her close, Amelia revealed.
"I feel that I have quite a compassionate nature and I hope that's something I inherited from her."
"Diana was an incredible icon and I know she touched a lot of people's hearts and lives."
