Princess Dianas’ 30 Years Old Niece Marries 62 Years Old Multi-Millionaire Fashion Tycoon.
Princess Diana’s 30-year-old niece, Lady Kitty Spencer, has married 62-year-old Multi-billionaire, Michael Lewis. The pair exchanged vows at the Villa Aldobrandini in Rome on Saturday, with the bride wearing a gown by Dolce & Gabbana — a designer she has modeled for since 2017, the Sun reported.
Lady Katherine Eleanor Lewis (née Spencer; born 28 December 1990) is a British fashion model and aristocrat. In 2018, Spencer became the spokesmodel for the Italian jewelry brand BVLGARI. She is the eldest child of Charles Spencer, 9th Earl Spencer, and a niece of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Lady Kitty Spencer was born in London on 28 December 1990 to Charles Spencer, Viscount Althorp (later the 9th Earl Spencer), and Victoria Lockwood. She is a member of the Spencer family, an English noble family that holds multiple peerages including the Earldom of Spencer, the Dukedom of Marlborough, the Earldom of Sunderland, and the Churchill Barony.
Although Lady Kitty is the 9th Earl Spencer’s firstborn child, the title and family estates, Althorp and Spencer House, will pass to her younger brother, Viscount Althorp, due to primogeniture, as specified in the succession of the Earldom of Spencer. Spencer expressed her personal belief in gender equality, while also stating that she believes her brother should inherit.
