    Felicity Jones might have burst onto our screens as Ethel Hallow in The Worst Witch nineteen years ago, but she’s now a fully fledged A-lister and is renowned for her amazing red carpet style.

    And although we’re all preoccupied with the news that Prince Harry might be proposing to Meghan Markle, it seems that Felicity has been setting the rumour mill alight with speculation of her own engagement.

    The 33 year-old British actress has been dating film director Charles Guard for two years, and according to US Weekly he got down on one knee recently and popped the question.

    Felicity has previously spoken about being a romantic, confessing to The Telegraph: ‘I am definitely romantic and I love romantic stories – that’s why I keep making romantic movies.

    ‘It’s funny how seeing a love story never gets boring because it’s the dream, isn’t it? It’s the dream to have a true connection with another human being.’

    Felicity had been dating sculptor Ed Fornieles, who she met at Oxford, for ten years before they split in 2013. But since meeting Charles in 2015 the she has gone on to talk about their plans for the future, including how empowering she feels motherhood is.

    Congratulations to the couple – we wish you all the best!
