Buckingham Palace announced the engagement of the couple on Wednesday, September 19. According to the palace, Thomas proposed his loving girlfriend Ella on the Isle of Sark in August and they will be getting married next spring.
The first cousins with Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Michael of Kent, 76, is Ella’s father. Her mother is Princess Michael of Kent, 73; previously in December 2017, Michael made headlines for wearing an offensive brooch to a lunch.
Thomas once dated Pippa Middleton, who is the younger sister of Kate Middleton. Though the former couple have broken up, they remain good friends.
In 2013, Thomas and Pippa were spotted hanging out together at the Cheltenham Festival where they also watched the races together.
In May 2014, the duo partied with Pippa's younger brother and one month later, they were seen grabbing a bite to eat together.
Following their split, Pippa has since moved on with racing driver James Matthews; they got married on May 20, 2017.
In June of this year, the happily married couple announced they were expecting their first child together.
