Duchess of Cambridge’s brother marries in south-east France

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.

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.”
