The couple even shared a little PDA, with James Middleton planting a kiss on Alizee Thevenet's head during the outing
Kate Middleton‘s younger brother and his new fiancé, Alizee Thevenet, got in the spirit of the holiday season by picking out a Christmas tree in London’s Battersea Park. One of James’ black cocker spaniels came along for the outing but had to walk — the bike that James usually lets his pups ride in was occupied by their fir.
The couple even shared a little PDA, with James planting a kiss on Alizee’s head.
James revealed this summer that his pet-friendly bike was stolen, adding that “Ella & Co are devastated.”
“Taking the dogs out on the bike brings me so much joy and to all those we meet on the way,” he wrote on Instagram.
The bike was recovered but badly damaged. However, James turned the situation around by restoring the ride and donating it to the animal charity Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
“I know it will get lots of use moving various residents around from the elderly to the injured to the overly excited pups wanting to get to the park quicker!” he said, adding, “This bike brings me so much happiness, its my favourite way to get around London especially to take Ella & Co to the park where they get to spend more time running on grass than on the pavement.”
James, 32, has credited his pack of dogs with helping him deal with his depression — and recently shared that he has “one request” when he does interviews: to “bring a dog 🐾 or 2 or 3,4,5 🐾 – they give me the courage to speak openly, freely & without fear of judgment especially when I talk about my experience with depression 🗣.”
