Prince George's teacher is going to marry one of his father's best friends – and it looks like a textbook novel.
Lucy Lanigan-O & # 39; Keeffe, 31, teaches outdoor learning and mindfulness at Thomas's Battersea, southwest of London, where George, age five, studies two years ago, reports The Sun.
She was engaged last week with tycoon Thomas van Straubenzee, 36, one of Prince William's oldest friends and godfather to Princess Charlotte.
The four-year-old princess is going to follow her brother to Thomas's house in September.
Friends leaked news of their relationship in April, reportedly saying Daily Mail: "They are very happy and have been leaving for a few months. It's a serious relationship.
William is expected to be a sidekick at his friend's wedding, where Charlotte and George will be maid of honor and page.
Van Straubenzee gave a speech at the wedding of William and Kate in 2011, which means that the Duke of Cambridge may well return the favor.
Van Straubenzee was introduced to Lanigan-O & # 39; Keeffe by a mutual friend a year ago, with The times explaining, "No one would be surprised if Prince William or his wife, Kate, were involved."
Van Straubenzees have known Harry and William since elementary school at the exclusive Ludgrove School in Berkshire.
Both van Straubenzee and his younger brother, Charlie, 31, were receptionists at Harry's royal wedding last year when Charlie made a speech.
He must be one of Archie's baby godfathers – while van Straubenzee joined William in New Zealand for his first international solo tour in 2005.
Van Straubenzee was married to professional tennis player Melissa Percy, daughter of the Duke of Northumberland, but the couple divorced in 2016 after three years of marriage.
They were married at Percy's family home, Alnwick Castle, the Hogwarts ensemble in the Harry Potter films.
Lanigan-O & # 39; Keeffe, who comes from Ireland, is the sister of the Olympic pentathlete Arthur.
Van Straubenzee's older brother, Henry, died in a car accident at age 18 and the two princes are patrons of a memorial fund set in his memory.
