Date April 9, 2019 17:59

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May 2018 was one of the most anticipated events of the past year. The presence of many world celebrities certainly added some glamor, but there was something else that drew the attention of the royal fans. For example, many people learned about the existence of Lady Di’s nephew Louis and no less attractive Kitty Spencer. Especially the striking resemblance of the latter with the late Princess.

Lady Kitty is the eldest daughter of Diana's brother, Earl Spencer. She is a successful model and simply an incredibly charming aristocratic woman whose style could be envied by many ladies of an even higher origin. Kitty had been doing okay, but it was her cousin's wedding that had a huge impact on her life and career.

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar published in March 2019, the 28-year-old told just how dramatic a change it was for her: she became instantly famous.

It was definitely unexpected. [My Instagram followers] went from 17,000 to half a million in one night.

Such growth of public interest somewhat annoyed Kitty at first. Prior to that, she wasn’t too eager to share the details of her personal life on social media and posted mostly pictures from official photo shoots. After Meghan and Harry’s wedding, the responsibility for the content she posted has grown manyfold, hasn’t it? It is probably for this reason that the photos of her brothers, sisters, friends, and even her beloved cat, Baby D, almost completely disappeared from her page.

Soon after the momentous event, Kitty signed a contract with the famous brand Bulgari. Her life went spinning in a circle of flights, shows, and cities like New York, Dubai, Beijing, Mexico... She could count the days she spent at home on the fingers.

New bohemian acquaintances, a career boost, more opportunities, including the chance to have a longer modeling career – all of this is undoubtedly good. But how about Kitty's personal life?

The little free time she has she devotes to charity like her late aunt. Not much is known about her romantic affairs. For several years, until 2017, Kitty had been dating business magnate, Niccolo Barattieri di San Pietro, almost 20 years her senior. As reported by The Daily Mail, he chose 52-year-old actress Liz Hurley over the young aristocrat, who was 26 back then.  

It is believed that Kitty's main hobbies include her favorite pets, art, and philanthropy. The girl spent her childhood in South Africa, where she received a higher education. Lady Spencer used to travel a lot in her youth: perhaps this is what hasn’t changed.

So, thanks to one of the most anticipated weddings of recent time, modest model Kitty became popular, recognizable, and even more promising. What do you think, what would have become of her career had she not been noticed during Harry and Meghan's wedding ceremony?
