A source explained: ‘[They] are fully committed to each other… They have been meshing their lives and families and don’t feel the need to get engaged yet or even tie the knot.
‘They have both been there and don’t feel it’s necessary. They are both very secure within their relationship and Ben worships her. It’s truly meant to be and everyone around them thinks they are a perfect match.’

Filming began on the movie in February last year in France but the set was shut down in March due to the pandemic and travel restrictions in Europe, before they returned to filming in September.
Matt was at the film’s next location in Ireland when lockdown began and, amid the travel ban, ended up isolating in the seaside resort of Dalkey, an affluent suburb of Dublin with his wife and four children for a few weeks.
The Last Duel had a scheduled released date of December 2020 but it has now been pushed back to October 15, 2021.
