Princess Charlotte’s uncle surprised his wife-to-be with a picnic and special gift

Kate Middleton’s younger brother James Middleton is clearly a romantic. Prince George’s maternal uncle treated his fiancée Alizee Thevenet to a surprise date night in the country complete with flowers, drinks and a picnic blanket. The Duchess of Cambridge’s future sister-in-law dressed to impress for the outing wearing a bandana print maxi dress from Scanlan Theodore. The summer frock teamed perfectly with Alizee’s necklace, which was a special gift from her husband-to-be. James, 33, shared photos and a video from the date night on Monday writing, “Alizee and I haven’t been on a date for AGES….so I decided to surprise her with a little picnic with the dogs and a special little gift 🎁.”

The Duchess’ brother revealed that he was “looking for something special” for Alizee when he found the necklace. “I discovered the @bulgari @savethechildrenjewellery collection where a proportion of each sale in the UK goes directly to Save the Children’s COVID-19 Emergency Response,” he wrote. “Save the Children is an amazing UK charity doing life-saving work across the world and I’m proud to support @bulgari who have raised around $100 million for @savethechildren #savethechildren@savechildrenuk #bulgari#picnic #datenight.”

James confirmed in October that he had proposed to Alizee. “❤️She said OUI ❤️,” he said in his announcement. “Our secret is out but we couldn’t be happier to share the news 🥂🍾#jalizee 🇬🇧🇫🇷.” The engaged pair was set to tie the knot in May, however their wedding was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier this month, James hinted that his nuptials might not be taking place this year. Alongside a photo of his beloved dogs, Prince William’s brother-in-law penned: “The only New Years resolution I’ve kept this year is ‘spending more time with my dogs’ 😂 🐾 .2020 NY list...Get married ❌Spend more time with the dogs ✅ Travel more ❌Learn French ❌.”
