The brother of the Duchess of Cambridge has celebrated his marriage alongside friends and family at a private service in south-east France.

James Middleton tied the knot with fiancee Alize Thevenet in the rural village of Bormes-les-Mimosas, announcing the news on Instagram on Sunday.

The 34-year-old Middleton and Thevenet met in London in 2018 and had initially planned to marry last year, but were force to postpone their nuptials amid the coronavirus pandemic.

It is not known whether William and Kate attended the ceremony.

Mr Middleton, an ambassador for UK charity Pets As Therapy and self-titled “Dog Dad”, gifted the royal couple a cocker spaniel puppy back in January of this year – following the death of their previous dog, Lupo.

Writing on Instagram, Mr Middleton said. “Yesterday I married the love of my life surrounded by family, friends and of course a few dogs in the beautiful village of Bormes-les-Mimosas.

“Words cannot describe how happy I am.”
