It’s wedding bells ahead for Lady Kitty Spencer, Princess Diana’s niece, who is reportedly engaged to her millionaire boyfriend Michael Lewis, 60.

Fashion tycoon Michael popped the question to 29-year-old model Kitty over Christmas after five months of dating, according to The Sun.

With his 61st birthday next month, Michael is just over three decades older than his new fiancée and five years older than his future father-in-law, Earl Spencer, 55.

Kitty, who was born in London but raised in South Africa, is said to have shared the couple’s happy news with her loved ones over the festive break.

“She’s been in Cape Town for the holidays and told her mother and the rest of the family,” a friend told Daily Mail.

“Michael is loved by all of them. Despite his wealth, he’s very humble and low key,” they added.
