For some newlyweds, those early weeks of married life can be so blissful it feels like one long honeymoon.
But for Lady Kitty Spencer, who tied the knot five weeks ago, it seems that’s truly been the case.
It appears the society beauty and her new husband, millionaire Michael Lewis, can’t tear themselves away from their honeymoon and return to normal life at their £19 million London home.
Here, we look at the photo album of their idyllic ‘honey-month’. . .
JULY 24: ULTIMATE LA DOLCE VITA WEDDING DAY
Lady Kitty, 30, went from being a daddy’s girl to marrying a man five years older than her father when she tied the knot in Rome with Michael Lewis, 62.
Having enjoyed a three-day-long hen do in Tuscany, Kitty’s wedding weekend in Rome kicked off with a dinner for guests on Friday, July 23, at the Galleria Del Cardinale, a baroque events venue.

The following day was the wedding itself, at the opulent Villa Aldobrandini in Frascati, during which Kitty wore three stunning bespoke gowns from Dolce & Gabbana, for whom she is a brand ambassador.
The hand-painted floral creation pictured here was her second of the day.
The label also kitted out many of the wedding guests, including former Strictly star Emma Thynn, the Marchioness of Bath.
JULY 26: GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU!

The honeymoon was on, and didn’t our bride look the smitten kitten as she snuggled up to new husband Michael for an intimate set of photos?
Was it a chance to show their love for one another — or another opportunity for Kitty to model a bespoke D&G frock? Her three-day-long wedding celebration in Italy gave her the chance to showcase five of the label’s gowns, including this one.
JULY 28: SPLASHING OUT AT SAN PIETRO
The stunning Positano in Italy was where Lady Kitty’s honeymoon began
From Rome it was on to Positano on Italy’s Amalfi Coast for the honeymoon to begin in earnest.
The couple stayed at the five-star Il San Pietro Hotel, where top suites cost £4,000 a night during high season.
The cost is no problem for Kitty’s husband — who made his £80million fortune in the retail industry as chairman of the Foschini Group, which owns British brands Phase Eight, Hobbs and Whistles (not that you’ll ever see Kitty dressed in any of those labels).
JULY 30: soaking up the MED MAGIC

‘Hi, Dolce & Gabbana? Kitty here. We’re extending our honeymoon and I’m running out of dresses — can you send more?’

The couple met three years ago through her one-time boss, former defence secretary Liam Fox, for whom Kitty worked at military charity Give Us Time.
AUGUST 8: NEWLYWEDS IN NAPLES

Wearing a £1,800 vibrant floral dress by her favourite Italian designing duo (oh, it’s a hard life having to wear all these expensive frocks), Kitty and Michael enjoyed lunch at the exclusive Conca Del Sogno restaurant in the Bay of Naples, an hour along the coast from their hotel, where Kitty posed on the balcony (left).
AUGUST 23: HOME FOR A SOCIETY SHINDIG

Italy’s nice, but a girl does need a dose of high society.
So Kitty took a break from her honeymoon to attend the Wiltshire wedding of pal Lady Jemima Herbert.
She left hubby sunning himself and attended the nuptials with her brother, Louis, Viscount Althorp.
AUGUST 24: DOUBLE DELIGHTS OF THE EUROPEAN COAST

Why stick to one riviera when you can enjoy two?
Kitty and Michael swapped the Italian Riviera for the French one to enjoy lunch on a cobbled street at Gran Café in Beaulieu-sur-Mer.
Some things stayed the same — she wore yet another D&G dress, teaming it with a red shoulder bag and sunglasses.
You can’t say she doesn’t earn the perks that come with her ambassador job.

AUGUST 26: DATE NIGHT? MORE LIKE DATE MONTH!
Photos or it didn’t happen, so the saying goes among millennials, and Kitty shared snaps of her honeymoon on Instagram with her 744,000 followers.
After a few weeks together as a couple, it seems it was time for friends and family to join in.
Businesswoman chum Natasha Poonawalla tagged along for a boat ride (below) in a series of pictures that Kitty entitled ‘Postcards from Positano’.

But it wasn’t without romance.
‘Date night’ declared Kitty in her Instagram stories — although ‘date month’ might have been more accurate.
Donning an orange sundress and sandals (no prizes for guessing the designer), she shared snaps of her and Michael dining at Rossellini’s, which Kitty said was ‘the most romantic and unforgettable evening’.
AUGUST 27: PASTA IN POSITANO

Not many people can eat in Italian restaurants every day and still fit into designer dresses.
Perhaps pencil-slim KItty was planning on pasta and a pud?
AUGUST 28: MEETING IN MILAN …

The honeymoon was a family affair, with Kitty’s half-brother Samuel Aitken (from mother Victoria’s second marriage) taking centre stage as he joined Kitty at a restaurant in Milan, in a photo she shared on Saturday.
Young Samuel, 18, also walked Kitty down the aisle at her wedding, with her brother Louis.
… AND FULL CIRCLE WITH D&G

Continuing her Italian tour, Saturday also saw her move on to Venice for a launch party with D&G.
After lunch, it was off to an evening do at the Palazzo Ducale.
Kitty’s aunt, Princess Diana, once famously said there were three people in her marriage — but, in the case of her niece, you’d be forgiven for thinking there were four: Kitty, Michael, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
