Nearly three years after announcing their engagement, Lady Amelia Spencer—daughter of Charles, Earl Spencer, and niece of Princess Diana—and longtime partner Greg Mallett were married in a ceremony in South Africa. According to reports, the ceremony took place on a mountaintop near Cape Town, and was attended by Amelia’s twin sister Lady Eliza Spencer, older sister Lady Kitty Spencer, and younger brother Samuel Spencer.

“It means so much to get married here,” Amelia shared. “Growing up here together for the last 14 years, all of mine and Greg’s happiest times as a couple are here. It’s even more special now.”

The couple met as students at the University of Cape Town. Greg, a fitness and nutrition coach, said, “I’ve been dreaming of watching Amelia walk down the aisle for 14 years.”

Born in London in 1992, Amelia moved to South Africa along with her father, mother Victoria Aitken, and siblings in 1995. Her father returned to the UK after his 1997 divorce from Victoria, who remained in South Africa with their children. According to the Mirror, Charles was not present at Amelia’s wedding or at Kitty’s 2021 wedding to businessman Michael Lewis.

The couple announced their engagement on Instagram in July 2020, after Greg proposed at Cloud Estate, a vineyard in Stellenbosch. In a September 2020 interview with Hello, Greg described the proposal, which took place in a hotel room decorated with rose petals.

“I had one big pink box, inside which I put in eight smaller boxes, decreasing in size,” he said. “In each box was a photograph of a ‘first time’ The final box contained a note instead of a picture, that said: ‘But most importantly, I know that you will remember tonight as the night that I proposed.’ As Amelia was reading the note, I dropped to one knee with the ring.”
