Sir Rocco Forte’s daughter Irene is engaged to tech whizz Felix Winckler. 

The Oxford graduate, who works at her family’s £340 million hotel empire, shared the happy news on Instagram yesterday.  

She posted a photo of her and Mr Winckler alongside a three ring emojis and a single heart. The rings were later deleted but congratulatory comments from friends, including Poppy Delevingne and Caggie Dunlop, confirm they’re due to wed.

Mr Winckler, 40, is no stranger to society romances, having previously courted Princess Caroline of Monaco’s daughter Charlotte Casiraghi. 

Meanwhile Irene previously dated Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, the half-brother of Cressida Bonas for five years before splitting in 2016. 

Miss Forte, who runs an eponymous skincare line, often posts about her beau on Instagram, including loved-up messages to mark his birthday. 

Last weekend the couple attended the lavish wedding of Dasha Zhukova, the ex-wife of Chelsea owner Roman Abrahamovic, and Stavros Niarchos, who used to date Paris Hilton. 

Also in attendance was Irene’s older sister, Lydia Forte, director of food and beverage at Rocco Forte Hotels, and her husband, Greek shipping heir Dimitri Chandris. 

Their Tuscan wedding was one of the society events of 2016, with guests including Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

The Princesses will likely be on the guest-list for Irene and Felix’s nuptials. 

It is one of a number of society weddings expected in the coming months. Princess Beatrice, Cressida Bonas and James Middleton are all thought to be tying the knot this year.
