Kate Middleton’s family heartbreak as brother forced to cancel wedding twice

Kate Middleton 's brother has revealed some sad news — he's been forced to cancel his wedding twice.

James Middleton, 33, was set to marry fiancée Alizée Thevenet this year after the couple announced their engagement in September 2019.

But like many couples, their plans have been thrown into disarray by the coronavirus pandemic.

They decided to cancel their original wedding plans right at the beginning of lockdown when no such ceremonies were allowed to take place.

Tragically now their second attempt at tying the knot has also been scrapped.

James has shared snaps of their romantic getaway to Italy on his Instagram page, simultaneously revealing the sad update while gushing about his bride-to-be.

"It's a year since I asked Alizée to marry me… what a year it's been!" he said.

"Two homes, lockdown, two attempts at a wedding, a litter of [puppies], launching of new company, a beard shave and much more but the best part is that I get to share it with you @alizeethevenet and I can't wait to take on whatever the future holds for us.

"We managed to escape to Italy for a quick dip in the the sea, lots of [pasta and wine emojis] and now ready to face the world again."

The couple met by chance while on a night out in London and have been together ever since.

The postponement is sure to be disappointing news for the Duchess of Cambridge and her family as they were looking forward to officially welcoming Alizée into the Middleton clan.

James also used his Instagram account to announce their engagement news a year ago with a beautiful photo of the two of them showing off the ring.

He wrote: "She said OUI. Our secret is out but we couldn't be happier to share the news" along with some heart and champagne emojis.

The entrepreneur is the final Middleton sibling to get hitched after older sisters Kate and Pippa.

When his original wedding plans were scrapped, a source told the Mail: "It's very sad, but it's just not practical to hold it in this crisis.

"Holding an AngloFrench wedding is impossible in the coming months and is still likely to be difficult in the summer.

"They would prefer to wait until all their guests are able — and happy — to attend."
