Royal weddings are always a lavish affair that the whole world looks forward to (because how else are we supposed to fantasize about a fairytale wedding?), and it looks like 2020 is going to be a particularly special year for the British royal family.
Earlier in September, we were blessed with the exciting news that Princess Beatrice was engaged to long-time beau Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and now, Flora Alexandra Ogilvy has announced her engagement to Timothy Vesterberg.

Beabea - wow! I'm so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo. It's been a long time coming and you two are meant to be. by me!! “We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement. We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to actually be married. We share so many similar interests and values and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness”
Flora, though a lesser known royal, is well connected to the throne on both sides of the family: her grandmother, Princess Alexandra of Kent, is Queen Elizabeth's first cousin, while her mother was also Prince Philip's first cousin, making Flora a distant cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry.
Flora announced the exciting news of her engagement in an adorable Instagram post, writing, "We're engaged! My beloved Timothy asked me to marry him and we’re blissfully happy."
Though she has her roots in her success as an established art consultant, Flora has also followed in the footsteps of fellow royal and fashion enthusiast, Lady Kitty Spencer, when she walked for Dolce & Gabbana in 2017, as part of the brand's Italian Christmas catwalk show in London.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
