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 May 2018 BVLGARI announced that Spencer would be the new face of the jewellery brand[29], working as their newest brand ambassador.[30] She had previously modelled for the jewellery designer, modelling the brand's "Diva's Dream" diamond necklace.[30]

Despite being the first born child of the 9th Earl Spencer, the title and family estates, Althorp and Spencer House, will pass to her younger brother, Viscount Althorp, due to primogeniture.[40] Spencer expressed her personal belief in gender equality while also stating that she believes her brother should inherit.[41][42][43]
