  • Told how he had taken ‘unintentional’ post-wedding social media break   

Kate Middleton’s brother James has shared an adorable dog selfie after taking an ‘unintentional’ post-wedding social media break to ‘enjoy the first few months of being with my new wife.’

James, the younger sibling of the Duchess of Cambridge, 39, and Pippa Middleton, 37, who got engaged to Alizée Thevenet, 32, in September 2019 but had to delay the ceremony twice in the last year due to Covid, finally tied the knot in Bormes-les-Mimosas in Provence in September. 

On Wednesday, the 34-year-old took to Instagram and posted a snap of one of his Cocker Spaniels, believed to be Ella, breaking his ‘unintentional’ social media detox following his September wedding.

Alongside the photo, he penned: ‘I’ve been so immersed in embracing & enjoying the first few months of being with my new wife. I’ve realised I have unintentionally taken a social detox… which I suppose is no bad thing…BUT we are back – hope you don’t mind.’

Announcing his marriage with a picture of him and bride Alizée on Instagram, James said: ‘Words cannot describe how happy I am’

James, who occasionally goes weeks without posting on social media, urged his follows to take the odd break from being online.

‘I highly recommend taking a social media detox from time to time – in fact I believe the saying is disconnect to reconnect,’ he wrote. ‘Over the last few months many of you have reached out…and thank you for checking up on me it means a lot.’

Prior to this, James’ last post was on September 12, when he announced his marriage with a picture of him and bride Alizée on Instagram and penned: ‘Words cannot describe how happy I am.’ 

Alizee, who swept her hair into a half-up do for the event, with two tendrils down each side of her face, opted for an off-the-shoulder gown which featured pretty lace detailing across the bodice.

Chateau Leoube is an exclusive vineyard in the village of Bormes-les-Mimosas in Provence that produces some of France’s finest rose wine

Meanwhile, James looked every piece the proud groom, donning a white linen suit for the laid back event.

The newlyweds were joined by 50 guests including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children at the Chateau Leoube, an exclusive vineyard in the village that produces some of France’s finest rose wine.  

Chateau Leoube is owned by British billionaire JCB chairman Anthony Bamford and his wife Carole.

Carole is quoted on the vineyard’s website about how the couple fell in love with the place when they set eyes upon it in 1997.

She says: ‘Anthony and I had been looking for a house in Provence for a while when we eventually found Léoube, our sleeping beauty.

The newly-weds and many of their guests are understood to have stayed the night at Chateau Leoube. Earlier the couple had been married by the mayor at the town hall

‘Set back from a quiet bay on the coastline, the house had been owned by the same family for years but hadn’t really been touched – we fell in love with it.’ 

Mr Middleton and Miss Thevenet, a trilingual French financial analyst, met in 2018 when his cocker spaniel, Ella, approached her at a private members’ club in London.

The couple, who announced their engagement in 2019, had originally planned to get married in May last year.

But they were twice forced to push back the date. He said in a post on Instagram in September last year: ‘It’s a year since I asked Alizée to marry me… what a year it’s been!

‘Two homes, lockdown, two attempts at a wedding, a litter of [dog emoji], launching of new company @ella.co, a beard shave and much more but the best part is that I get to share it with you @alizeethevenet and I can’t wait to take on whatever the future holds for us.’
