Alizée Thevenet: The unusual jet set life of Duchess Kate's new sister-in-law

Thevenet is the daughter of the retired diplomat Jean-Gabriel Thevenet, who currently lives in Paris and pursues a career as a writer and poet after traveling the world with his daughter. Alizée is said to have a close relationship with her parents – who, incidentally, have shown a tendency to be eccentric when choosing her name.

Alizée’s name has a special meaning

Alizée’s father revealed to the Daily Mailthat his daughter owes her unusual name to a tropical wind known as “Alize” in French. “My daughter is named after my first love, windsurfing, when the Alize wind fills the sails.”He proudly added that his daughter grew up trilingual and spoke Spanish, French and English.

Alizée has a great interest in sailing and water sports. On Instagram, she likes to show herself, quite unglamorous, while practicing her hobbies. In this regard, she has something in common with Duchess Kate, who, like her sister Pippa, is considered very sporty.
