The couple, who met by chance in South Kensington in 2018, previously shared a house in London and spent a lot of time at James' parents Carole and Michael Middleton's Berkshire home following the pandemic. However, James and Alizée ditched the city in favour of the countryside earlier this year. 

"We are counting down the days until we get the keys to our new home and can be reunited with our belongings, which have been in storage for almost a year now," the 33-year-old wrote in The Telegraph ahead of their move.
