James Middleton is revealing his romantic side!

Kate Middleton's younger brother posted a series of sweet photos to Instagram on Monday documenting a dreamy countryside date night with his fiancée Alizee Thevenet — complete with a picnic rug, vibrant flowers and their beloved pooches.

"Alizee and I haven’t been on a date for AGES….so I decided to surprise her with a little picnic with the dogs and a special little gift 🎁," James captioned the images, before revealing he also sprung a romantic surprise on the French financial analyst, who he proposed to in October 2019.

"I was looking for something special & I discovered the @bulgari @savethechildren jewellery collection," added James alongside images of Alizee wearing a sparkling necklace teamed with a blue, patterned maxi dress.

"A proportion of each sale in the UK goes directly to Save the Children’s COVID-19 Emergency Response," he continued. "Save the Children is an amazing UK charity doing life-saving work across the world and I’m proud to support @bulgari who have raised around $100 million for @savethechildren"

As with most things involving James, his dogs were by his side. An uploaded video shows Alizee hugging and kissing one of the couple's four-legged friends, who James recently revealed he sings to during their frequent bike rides across the British capital.

"When we go for a bike ride in London I always end up singing this song. 🤷‍♂️🎶," James posted on the Instagram page of his new pet food business Ella & Co, which was set to "A Whole New World" from the Disney movie Aladdin.

"I cannot explain how much the dogs love travelling in the bike, they put their paws up, feel the wind through their ears and take in all the smells as they go on a magical carpet ride. ❤️🐾" he added.

James' date night post is by no means the only romantic moment he's revealed on social media. In October 2019 he confirmed that he'd popped the question to Alizee on Instagram with the words “❤️She said OUI ❤️,” alongside a smiling photo of the pair.

“Our secret is out but we couldn’t be happier to share the news,” he wrote, adding a sweet hashtag with their couple nickname, Jalizee, with Alizee placing her hand on James’ chest to reveal her stunning sapphire engagement ring.

James went on to share a handful of affectionate clips of the couple on his Instagram Story - including one of the duo sharing a playful underwater kiss.
