All About Princess Diana's Niece Lady Amelia Spencer Ahead of Her Wedding
Lady Amelia Spencer is getting married!
The glamorous niece of Princess Diana is set to wed Greg Mallett, and the couple alluded that the date is on the horizon in a joint Instagram post shared on Thursday. "Not long now…" they captioned the snap, which shows Amelia holding a loving hand to her fiancé's face before a beautiful mountain range.
Ahead of the celebration, here's everything to know about the bride-to-be.
Lady Katya Amelia Spencer was born in London in July 1992, arriving in the world with twin sister Lady Eliza Victoria. The twins are the daughters of Princess Diana's brother, Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, and his first wife, Victoria Aitken. The couple were already parents to daughter Kitty, born in 1990, and would welcome son Louis in 1994.
The family moved to South Africa in 1995, and Charles and Victoria divorced in 1997, months after Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris at age 36. Lady Amelia and her siblings grew up in South Africa but traveled back to the U.K. for certain royal events. These occasions included the dedication of the Princess of Wales Memorial Playground in 2000, the Service of Thanksgiving on the tenth anniversary of Diana's death in 2007 and the wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton in 2011.
