They said yes”. In May 2019, Kitty Spencer, Princess Diana’s niece, formalized her relationship with the wealthy South African businessman Michael Lewis. As the two of them walked through the streets of New York, she held his shoulder and a small detail could be seen on his finger. Indeed, it was a large diamond, which left no room for doubt. Since then, the couple seemed to spin the perfect love and according to information published by the Daily Mail this Saturday, July 24, they have decided to seal their union. The tabloid explains that the two got married in the Villa Aldobrandini in Frascati, located on the heights of Rome. Regarding the guests, there were the twins Amelia and Eliza Spencer, the sisters of the bride, but also Viscountess Emma Weymouth, the popstar Pixie Lott, or Sabrina, the wife of Idris Elba. For his part, Michael Lewis had obviously invited his three children, from a previous union. For her dress, Kitty Spencer had opted for a dress with a high neck, signed Dolce & Gabbana, of which she is the ambassador. After their wedding, the happy newlyweds and their guests were able to enjoy a delicious meal before playing on the dance floor.
An expected union. On January 4, 2020, The Mirror revealed that Kitty Spencer had been proposed by her wealthy fiancé. According to the tabloids, it was a few days before Christmas, during a vacation in South Africa that Michael Lewis had taken the plunge. “Michael is loved by all. Despite his wealth, he is very humble and discreet,” said a close friend of the young woman. The couple had since had to postpone their wedding date due to the coronavirus pandemic but were finally able to make their love a reality. On her social networks, Lady Diana’s niece had posted a photo of her, in which she wears a leopard dress and which seems to have been taken during a getaway with friends. “We can’t wait to see you,” several of her friends had commented under the post.
