Princess Diana's Niece, Lady Amelia Spencer, is engaged. After dating her beau, Greg Mallet, for more than a decade, Amelia's father showed off her diamond ring on Twitter. She wasn't the only one, however. Charles Spencer, Princess Diana's brother, the 9th Earl Spencer, shared the news on his account, as well, and gave followers a few details into his daughter's big day.

"So happy for my daughter, Amelia, engaged to her boyfriend of 11 years, Greg - it’s wonderful to hear them both so excited about their future. Sending them both love, and every good wish for their life together. I love that Greg asked my blessing before proposing. Very sweet," Charles wrote.

Mallet opted to share the news on Instagram with a gallery of four photos. He called July 22 — the day that he popped the question — the "best day of my life."

"So this was the best day of my life. 22nd of July 2020, I asked the love of my life to spend the rest of her life with me and she said YES. Couldn't be happier and I love you with all my heart @ameliaspencer15," he wrote.

With a royal engagement comes a royal wedding, of course. Lady Amelia's cousins, Prince William and Prince Harry, should be on the guest list, since she and Mallet attended both of their weddings. Amelia's engagement isn't the only royal wedding on the horizon. Her sister, Kitty, got engaged earlier this year.
