Middleton shared a series of heart emojis and described the news as "so wonderful" in an Instagram comment.

Bonas and Wentworth-Stanley were previously linked before her romance with Prince Harry and started dating again shortly after her split from the royal.

Wentworth-Stanley is the son of the Marchioness of Milford-Haven and works as an estate agent.

Bonas, an actress and model, dated Prince Harry from 2012 to 2014, after she was reportedly introduced to the royal by his cousin Princess Eugenie.

The former couple are thought to still be on good terms and Bonas was among the high-profile attendees at the Duke of Sussex's wedding to Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle last year. She was also a guest at Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October.

Bonas's screen credits include roles in the ITV drama Doctor Thorne and the 2017 film Tulip Fever.

She took the role of Daisy Buchanan in a 2016 stage adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby at the Leicester Square Theatre.

During a 2017 interview with BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, Bonas said that she finds being "pigeon-holed" by her royal connection "incredibly frustrating."

"It's incredibly frustrating, especially in the industry that I'm in," she said. "But you know, it is the way it is. It's about making a stand and saying, 'No, this is who I am and this is what I want to do.'"
