Early life and family[edit]

Lady Kitty Eleanor Spencer was born in London on 28 December 1990 to Charles Spencer, 9th Earl Spencer, and Victoria Lockwood.[1][2] A member of the Spencer family, she has three younger siblings and four younger half-siblings through her father's second marriage to Caroline Freud and third marriage to Karen Villeneuve.[3][4] Her paternal aunt was Diana, Princess of Wales.[5][6] She is a first cousin of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.[7][8]

She was raised in Cape Town, South Africa, where she attended Reddam House, a private school.[9] After her parents divorced in 1997, Spencer spent her time between England with her father and South Africa with her mother.[1]

In 2009 Spencer was presented as a debutante at the Hôtel de Crillon's le Bal des Débutantes in Paris.[10]

In 1992, when Spencer was one year old, she appeared with her mother on the cover of Harper's Bazaar UK.[11] Spencer is signed with Storm Model Management[12][13] and made her professional modelling debut in 2015 in a December issue of Tatler.[5] In September 2017 she walked for Dolce & Gabbana in a fashion show during Milan Fashion Week.[14] She was the 2017 June covergirl of Hello Fashion Monthly and was featured on the cover of Vogue Japan.[15][16] She walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana in their 2017 Christmas show at Harrods.[15][17] In 2018, Spencer was a featured model in Dolce & Gabbana's Venetian spring/summer print campaign.[18][19][20] During 2018 Milan Fashion Week Spencer walked in Dolce & Gabbana's Secrets & Diamonds fashion show.[21][22][23][24]

In May 2018 BVLGARI announced that Spencer would be the new face of the jewellery brand[25], working as their newest brand ambassador.[26] She had previously modelled for the jewellery designer, modelling the brand's "Diva's Dream" diamond necklace.[26]

On 23 September 2018 Spencer walked in a fashion show in Milan for Dolce & Gabbana's Spring 2019 collection.[27][28]

Philanthropy and charity work[edit]

In June 2017 Spencer helped raise £140,000 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.[26][34] She also has raised funds for Save the Children.[26]

Although she is the 9th Earl Spencer's firstborn, the title and family estates, Althorp and Spencer House, will pass to her younger brother, Viscount Althorp, due to primogeniture.[38] Spencer expressed her personal belief in gender equality while also stating that she believes her brother should inherit.[39][40][41]
