The couple were first seen in public at the Balenciaga show in Paris in January 2021, as friends of the couple.
Suki Waterhouse has been dating the Snow White and the Huntsman star since before the end of last year, and the couple have been very vocal about their plans to wed. The designer has spoken openly about how she’s managed to keep her private life so discreet, but she’s now admitted that she plans to marry her prince charming.
The pair have been inseparable since they were spotted together in Paris in January 2021, and they were later seen at the Venice Film Festival where they had a private showing of the Disney film that inspired her Fall 2019 collection. They’ve also been spotted at the Costume Institute Gala at the Met museum in New York City in May 2021, and in London in June.
The designer has yet to make a formal announcement regarding her engagement, but she’s been posting hints online of her upcoming wedding. On March 24th, she tweeted, “I’m so happy to share my exciting news that my engagement and wedding to @Emmersonpattinson are canceled. Thank you for all your love and well-wishes! xxx” In a follow-up tweet, she announced that her new collection would be available to buy starting April 2021.
The announcement was certainly a busy one for the designer’s social media accounts, and fans couldn’t help but notice the unusual activity. Many took to Twitter to voice their concern over her apparent engagement, while others commended her for keeping her private life discreet.
Waterhouse has been open about her struggle to maintain her privacy in the face of social media. She told Hello! magazine, “I think that’s the thing that surprises people about me – how much I’ve managed to keep private. It seems so weird to have this big platform, but then when you log on you don’t see anybody. You only see yourself. That’s the whole point of it, I suppose.”
The designer continued, “I didn’t realize how much the public wanted to know, so I didn’t do myself any favors by being so private. But I don’t regret it. It’s made me stronger, pushed me to work harder, and focused more.”
After years of being open about her personal life, Waterhouse is now planning to keep her wedding a secret. She’s cited fears over her husband’s safety as the reason for the unprecedented secrecy. Still, she’s adamant that she wants her big day to be as lavish as possible. She told Vogue, “I want a wedding that’s as special as possible and makes everyone feel happy. I don’t want it to be something that’s just been done because it’s the right thing to do.”
Pattinson has expressed his excitement at marrying the designer, and has hinted at the wedding details. The couple were first seen together at the 2021 Golden Globes in January, where they presented an award. They were later spotted at the Met museum in New York City in February, and at the BAFTAs in March. In a documentary about his life, Pattinson said, “Suki and I have been together for a while now, and we’re very happy. We want to make sure our relationship is something special, so we’ve decided that we’ll get married.”
The actor went on to say that he hopes to have a small and intimate ceremony with his bride, adding, “I think it’s important to have a celebration that’s just for our family and friends. After that, we’ll see what happens.”
The pair have been dating for more than a year, which makes them the perfect couple to host a wedding. Still, it remains to be seen whether or not Waterhouse will keep her promise to keep their wedding a secret.
Robert Pattinson: A Romantic Actor Or A Stereotype?
Pattinson rose to fame for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight films. The series, which became a phenomenon, was initially inspired by his own romantic life. He played the vampire seducing a teenage girl with his charm, wit, and good looks. The majority of the films focused on his romance with actress Kristen Stewart, with whom he’s been in a relationship since 2012. The two were married in October 2018.
Pattinson has talked about the irony of his fame. He told Parade magazine, “It makes me laugh because I never thought of myself as being that famous. When I was growing up, I never thought that the person I would marry would be that famous.”
He continued, “When I was a kid, my dad would always say to me, ‘Don’t do anything stupid, alright? You’ll end up in the news.’ And I always wanted to say, ‘The news? I’d love to be in the news. I want to be famous.’ Then when I finally was, I didn’t know what to do with it. It was a bit overwhelming.”
Pattinson said that he’s learned to deal with his newfound celebrity. He told the newspaper, “I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t even think about it. I don’t walk down the street thinking, ‘Oh my God, there’s a guy who’s going to recognize me and want to talk to me.’ I just try and enjoy my life, and let the rest take care of itself.”
Pattinson is known for being a very private person, and he keeps even his professional life private. He rarely speaks about his work, and when he does it’s usually with a famous guest or a crew member from his movies. Still, he’s made a concerted effort to be more open about his personal life, and has spoken candidly about his romantic relationships.
Pattinson became involved with Waterhouse just before the end of last year. The couple were first seen together at the Balenciaga show in Paris in January 2021, as friends of the couple. They were later spotted at the Met museum in New York City in February and at the BAFTAs in March.
Pattinson has expressed his excitement at marrying Waterhouse. He told the Sunday Times, “I think it’s something really special. She’s beautiful, intelligent, and ambitious. She also wants to be responsible and I think that’s really important. I’m very happy to be partnering with someone who I think will be a great mother. And she’ll make a fantastic wife too.”
While he has spoken about his desire to protect her privacy, other publications have reported that Waterhouse has no intention of keeping her new husband’s identity a secret.
The designer has been open about her struggle to maintain her privacy in the face of social media.

Despite his effort to protect her identity, there are still many details about Waterhouse’s engagement that remain a mystery. She will remain the Duchess of Oxford, as her husband is currently an English subject, despite living in France.
Suki Waterhouse: An Entrepreneurial Designer
Suki Waterhouse began her design career at the age of 15, when she was hired as a full-time apprentice at Alexander McQueen. After gaining experience, she opened her own studio, Waterhouse Design Ltd, in February 2021. Her fashion brand is an extension of her personal style, which she describes as “bold yet refined.”
Waterhouse was named after the luxury fashion house, and her designs have received numerous accolades, including a prestigious LVMH award. She has also been nominated for the BFA Fashion Design Award multiple times, though she’s never won.
The designer has long been supported by a strong, female-dominated leadership team. In 2018, Waterhouse launched a sustainability initiative, waterhousewedonot, which sources materials from ethical suppliers and is committed to zero-waste production. The brand also donates a percentage of their sales to the British Red Cross, a cause close to Waterhouse’s heart, as her grandmother was a founding member of the British Red Cross Society.
In an effort to maintain her privacy, Waterhouse has kept a low profile in the media, instead using her social media to share pictures of her outfits and the occasional interview. Still, she has been candid about her style, and has shared many outfit details and styling tips on social media. She also has a fashion YouTube channel, where she shares styling tips and gives advice on how to dress cooler and more fashionably in the summer.
