James Middleton has fallen fast for his new beau, French financial expert Alizee Thevenet. It seems she's getting along with Middleton's many dogs, too—just yesterday, he posted a photo on Instagram of Thevenet and his golden retriever Mabel, enjoying some time poolside.
So who is James's new girlfriend? Here's what to know about Alizee Thevenet.
They reportedly met last summer.
Per the Daily Mail, Middleton and Thevenet have been dating for around 10 months, after first meeting in a London bar.
Thevenet speaks three languages.
According to her LinkedIn, Thevenet can speak Spanish and English, in addition to her native French. Given that she grew up between six different countries—Germany, Indonesia, Chile, France, Belgium, and England—it's hardly surprising that she's picked up some foreign languages.
She's an accomplished financial analyst.
Thevenet holds a Master's degree in Investment and Finance from Queen Mary University of London, and has been working in the London financial industry for about six years.
Thevenet's dad likes Middleton as much as she does.
In January, Jean-Gabriel Thevenet opened up to the Daily Mail about his daughter's new beau. "James is a very charming man," he said. "I am very happy that Alizee is together with James. I know she is very happy. We keep our fingers crossed for them... James and the Middleton family are very charming. We have a lot of admiration for the whole Middleton family—James, his sisters and his parents."
It seems like Thevenet and Middleton are getting serious.
The couple was first spotted together this winter, when they went to the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund’s Christmas Carol Service at St. Luke’s Church (although Thevenet made an effort to shield her face from the paparazzi). Soon after, they were seen vacationing in St. Barts along with James's sister Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews. And in mid-May, they made their first real appearance together at Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston's wedding.
They're also Instagram official: on May 7, Middleton posted a photo with Thevenet for the first time.
