Princess Diana's niece Lady Kitty Spencer is spotted kissing her 60-year-old fashion tycoon lover Michael Lewis in St Tropez
Lady Kitty Spencer has raised eyebrows among her social set through her romance with Michael Lewis, a fashion tycoon 32 years her senior.
But these photographs from the French Riviera prove their relationship is anything but a passing fancy.
Princess Diana’s 28-year-old niece was seen kissing Lewis after leaving Club 55 in St Tropez. ‘They are a happy couple,’ I am told.
In June rumours swirled of a possible engagement after she was pictured showing off a large diamond ring on her engagement finger at London's Cash & Rocket Masquerade Ball.

The couple had gone public with their relationship during a stroll through New York City in May.
Lewis, who has three adult children, was born in South Africa, where Lady Kitty grew up with her mother, Victoria, the first wife of Earl Spencer.
Kitty, who was spotted at the tycoon’s £19 million mansion in central London last summer, told the Mail at the time that she didn’t feel ‘in any rush’ to start a family.
She and South Africa-born Lewis — the owner of the Whistles High Street chain, who has three adult children — went public with their relationship in New York last month, when they were pictured together in Manhattan
‘I can see myself having children at some point,’ she told me, ‘but I’m only in my 20s. I do have friends my age who are having children, and they are so, so, sweet, but I think everyone should do things in their own time.’
Reputed to be worth £80 million, Lewis is five years the earl’s senior, but Lady Kitty does like older men.
Her last boyfriend was 48-year-old Italian property magnate Niccolo Barattieri di San Pietro.
