Greg, 30, also celebrated the news on social media, writing: "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."

It is a particularly exciting time for the Spencer family, as Lady Amelia's older sister Lady Kitty Spencer is also busy wedding planning after reportedly becoming engaged to fashion tycoon Michael Lewis shortly before Christmas. However, we are yet to get a proper glimpse of her engagement ring.
