The Duchess of Cambridge has relocated to the countryside with her husband Prince William and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Her brother James Middleton has already made the move from London to the countryside, and it looks like he's living the dream with his wife Alizée Thevenet.

The couple reside in Berkshire, along with their adorable pet dogs Ella, Zulu, Inka, Luna, Mabel and Nala and we've seen glimpses of their dreamy estate on Instagram.

The couple, who met by chance in South Kensington in 2018, previously shared a house in London, but they ditched the city in favour of the countryside. In fact, James revealed their furry friends were actually one of the reasons they chose a rural lifestyle.

Shortly ahead of their move, James wrote in The Telegraph: "We are country people and love going out for long walks, but one of the key reasons we wanted to live in the countryside was our six dogs."

James has shared a few glimpses of his private home life with sweet photos of Alizée and their pets. Take a look at their new house, as well as their former London property and James' parents Carole and Michael Middleton's Berkshire home where the couple spent time during the pandemic…

Sharing a snap of himself, Alizée and one of their pet dogs outside the red brick exterior, he wrote: "I think buying a house is up there with one of the most stressful experiences in my life.

"It’s been a hectic few months moving into our new home & we couldn’t be happier. We are settling into our life in the country & the dogs their new home #housemove #lifeinthecountry #dogsofinstagram #dogs."

Back in 2017, James posted a photo of one of his dogs as a puppy in the living room of his former home. He inadvertently showed that the room had olive green walls and wooden floors, as well as a traditional fireplace with green and cream tiles. There was wooden panelling along various areas of the walls, as well as a vintage oak piano.
