Dog Ella “matched” Middleton and Thevenet
Ella and Mabel, two of the couple’s dogs, were used as flower girls. According to the British nobility expert, Ella in particular is said to be Zoe Forsey played an important role in the very first meeting of the two in 2018. “They actually owe their meeting to their dogs,” she quotes the newspaper Daily Express. “James had taken Ella to a very fancy private club in West London. Ella was sitting at James’ feet and when she got up to drink water, she was distracted by a very beautiful blonde woman who was sitting in the corner of the bar It was a rather strange moment too, because when James came over to apologize, Alizée actually thought he was a waiter and ordered a drink. “
Forsey jokingly added, “You can’t blame her for falling in love with him just because of his name.” James and Alizée got engaged in September 2019 but had to postpone their wedding twice because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Thevenet wore a special outfit – the same one that Middleton’s mother wore when she married her Michael. “My ‘something borrowed’ was actually my mother-in-law Carole’s dress, who last wore it 41 years ago on her wedding anniversary in June 1980,” she told the Hello!-Magazin.
