Looks like Britain isn't the only country preparing for a royal wedding: Princess Stéphanie of Monaco just announced that her eldest son, Louis Ducruet, is engaged!
Stéphanie shared the news on Wednesday via the Prince's Palace with "joy," as People reports. Louis, 25, is 12th in the line of succession to the throne of Monaco, and is the nephew of current monarch Prince Albert II. He met his new fiancée, Marie Chevallier, over four years ago while they both were attending Western Carolina University in North Carolina.
The happy couple shared sweet snaps of the engagement on Instagram:

Louis has worked as an international scout for AS Monaco, Monaco's soccer team. Marie works at the luxury Hotel Hermitage in Monaco as a banqueting and convention coordinator.
Louis is the son of Princess Stéphanie of Monaco and her ex-husband Daniel Ducruet. Louis also has two younger sisters, Pauline and Camille. His mother, Stéphanie, is the youngest of Grace Kelly and Rainier III's three children.
While Louis is the first of Stéphanie's children to get engaged, he's just the latest Monegasque royal to marry in recent years. The reigning monarch Prince Albert married Princess Charlene in a grand royal wedding back in 2011, and the couple have since welcomed their adorable twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella. Andrea Casiraghi, the son of Stéphanie's sister Caroline, married Tatiana Santo Domingo in 2013, and his brother Pierre Casiraghi married Beatrice Borromeo in 2015.
No wedding date has been announced yet.
