Followers were quick to point out how touching James' post was, and many more were mesmerised by the photographs of their trip.

"Beautiful pictures," wrote one.

"Amazing pictures, thanks for sharing," added another, with a third gushing: "Oh my god. Looks like paradise."

James and Alizee announced their engagement last October after dating for around a year. 

The pair stayed with James's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, at their stunning Bucklebury home during lockdown.

Back in May, James shared a sweet home video of him surprising Alizee by shaving off his beard. 

He revealed at the time that the pair had to delay their wedding for the first time amid the coronavirus pandemic.

James explained: "As Alizee and myself were due to get married... well actually, this month. She's never seen me without a beard, so I thought it was about time I showed her what was behind it."
