It was recently announced that the late Princess Diana would be at the centre of a new biopic starring Kristen Stewart in the titular role. However, it turns out the Princess Diana is not the only member of the Spencer family capable of dominating the front pages.
In fact there are a few famous faces in the Spencer family who have made a name for themselves. Diana’s younger brother is Charles Spencer, who holds the title Earl Spencer, is well-known in his own right, but his daughter has stolen the headlines recently.
Kitty, Earl Spencer’s oldest child, was born in 1990 and grew up in South Africa with her mother Victoria. She read psychology at the University of Cape Town and has modelled for brands including Dolce & Gabanna and Bvlgari.
Last month she married wealthy father-of-three Michael Lewis, 62, in a lavish ceremony in Rome.
She wore a series of gowns by Dolce & Gabanna with her main dress reported to have taken six months to create.
Although the monarchy has now changed to put sons and daughters on an equal footing in terms of ascending to the throne, British primogeniture law has not been changed to peers such as dukes and earls.
So Earl Spencer’s title will go to his eldest son Louis rather than Lady Kitty.
