Lady Kitty Spencer stepped onto the world stage during the 2011 royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The niece of Princess Diana looked absolutely stunning, making the millions of television viewers all over the world question who on earth she was.

Once a socialite, the daughter of Diana's brother Earl Spencer and Victoria Lockwood has certainly made a name for herself, especially in the modeling world.

She appears on the Storm Management website, with her work credits including Ralph Lauren, Bulgari, and Vogue.

A Word Traveler and Highly Educated

The socialite turned model has had quite the education, after being raised in South Africa. While attending private school in Cape Town, she focused her studies on psychology, politics and literature.

After studying history of art in Florence, she worked towards her Master's degree in luxury brand management at Regent’s University in London.

Clearly, Lady Kitty Spencer is quite the world traveler and adventurous type, learning multiple languages along the way. Not only that, but she's charitable as well, acting as a patron for Centrepoint of which her cousin Prince William is president.

She told Marie Claire in July, “I never know what profession to write on my arrivals card. Model? Philanthropist? Member of the British aristocracy?"

She Found Herself Thrust Onto The World Stage

She found herself once more pushed on to the world stage during Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, though she finds it somewhat unnerving. “It was definitely unexpected," she told Harpers Bazaar back in March.

She continued, “(My Instagram followers) went from 17,000 to half a million in one night. I thought I had someone else’s phone when I woke up the next morning. I had to turn my notifications off because my phone was going to die.”

Though she's a member of the British aristocracy, and related to Princess Diana, she's not used to being in the spotlight.

She's Engaged To A Man Older Than Her Father

Lady Kitty Spencer has recently become engaged to Michael Lewis, a multi-millionaire fashion tycoon, who at 61 years old is scandalously five years older than her father, Earl Spencer.

A friend of Kitty told the Daily Mail, "Michael proposed to Kitty before Christmas. She’s been in Cape Town for the holidays and told her mother and the rest of the family. Michael is loved by all of them. Despite his wealth, he’s very humble and low key."

At least the age difference doesn't seem to bother her family, though it must seem strange to her father that his daughter will wed someone older than him.

She's Not In A Rush To Have Children

Though she is now engaged, the Storm model is not quite ready to have children anytime soon. Last summer she told the Daily Mail she is not "in any rush" to start a family.

She continued, "I can see myself having children at some point, but I’m only in my 20s. I do have friends my age who are having children, and they are so, so, sweet, but I think everyone should do things in their own time."

Well, clearly she's not in a rush to get pregnant anytime soon, but her wedding to Michael Lewis is sure to be a massive, and highly expensive event with a number of celebrities and members of the royal family attending.
