As of his writing, Booth is a happily engaged man. He has been engaged to his longtime girlfriend Bel Powley – a fellow English actress – since mid-2021.

The engaged couple first met each other in 2016 on the sets of the 2017 movie titled Mary Shelley. In the film, Booth played the role of Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Powley played the role of Claire Clairmont.

Although they weren’t each other’s love interest in the film, they had a quick connection and eventually began dating. In an interview with Browns Fashion Magazine, Powley was asked if she and Booth met on the sets of Mary Shelley.

In reply, she affirmed and said, “Yeah, in 2016. He was playing Percy Shelley and Elle Fanning was playing Mary; I played Claire Clairmont, Mary’s stepsister. That’s when we fell in love – ahhh!”

Since then, the couple has always been together. But, they keep pretty much most of the details of their relationship upto themselves only as they prefer privacy.

Nonetheless, it’s reported that Booth doesn’t like spending much time away from his partner. There is a quote mentioned – from one of his interviews – in the personal quotes section of his IMDb profile.

The line was about how an actor has to spend several months away — for the filming — from their friends and loved ones. “But it’s not like working a 9-5 job and only having two or three weeks off a year.”

Continuing his statement, he said that he might not see his girlfriend for two or three months, but once the filming of a certain movie or show is done, then “we can spend two or three months together solidly.”

After being together for around five years, the actor deemed it perfect for taking his relationship with his girlfriend to another stage. On July 3, 2021, Booth announced via Instagram that he asked Powley to marry him, and she said yes — they got engaged.

He had shared a series of pictures. The first picture was a selfie of him alongside his now-future wife, in which Powley was flaunting her engagement ring. The other two pictures showed that he proposed to her during a romantic picnic in Primrose Hill, London.

Powley also announced the good news via her respective Instagram handle by sharing some cute snaps with her to-be-husband. Referring to the England National Football team’s win over Ukraine in the Euro 2020 quarter-final, she captioned her post as:

“Football’s coming home…and so is my husband.” The caption was followed by football and flag emojis and ring emojis.

Are Douglas Booth and Bel Powley still together?

The engaged couple is still together as of this writing. There have been no reports of Booth and Powley breaking their engagement and walking down separate paths.

As mentioned earlier, the two prefer privacy. Due to that, they don’t post much about each other on their respective social media handles.

Now that it’s confirmed that they are still together, is there any news on them sharing the wedding vows anytime soon? Currently, there has been no such news. The couple might have some amazing wedding plans, but they haven’t shared anything.

Only time will tell when and where Booth and Powley will walk down the aisle and become a husband and wife duo. Till then, their fans have no other option but to wait.

Douglas Booth’s dating history

Before Booth was in a relationship with his girlfriend turned fiance, Powley, he was rumored to be in several relationships with some renowned people.

While announcing the actor’s engagement news with Powley, DailyMail gave a little insight into Booth’s relationship history. The outlet reported that he was once linked to Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas in 2016.

Similarly, they mentioned that his other renowned potential partner was his LOL co-star Miley Cyrus. Furthermore, he was reportedly in a relationship with two of his former co-stars: Vanessa Kirby (2012 to 2013) and Ellie Bamber (2015).
