Yes, they are all members of the same long-term circle of friends. Thomas is best friends with William and Harry, while Melissa is close to Chelsy and Eugenie.

I expect we'll see all of them at the wedding next summer, including Pippa.
Wonder if either William or Harry will be a groomsman?

Lady Melissa Percy & Thomas van Straubenzee

Full announcement from the Northumberland Gazette [thanks to Dman]

Duke and Duchess announce daughter’s engagement ... to Prince Harry’s best friend

LADY Melissa Percy, youngest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, is set to marry Prince Harry’s best friend next summer.
In an official announcement made this morning, the 25-year-old’s delighted parents revealed that she has become engaged to Mr Thomas van Straubenzee.

It follows the marriage of her older sister Catherine – known as Katie – to city financier Patrick Valentine in February 2011.

Mr van Straubenzee, 29, is an ex-Royal Green Jackets officer now working as a chartered surveyor. He is closely connected to Prince Harry, who he met at Ludgrove Prep School, and accompanied the Prince on his first official tour to New Zealand.

Probably yes; in French surnames the particle "de" is the sign of the nobility.

His ancestor was Gabrielle Maria Laura d'Hautefort,daughter of Armand,the last Marquis d'Hautefort who died at the beginning of the 20th century...

Gabrielle married Fernand Stoffels de Varsberg(son of Charles Stoffels de Varsberg and Kathinka Weckbecker de Heddesdorf),a family of German descent living in part of France which is now near the French-German border...

As Gabrielle died before her father,her husband Fernand was then adopted by the last Marquis and changed the name from Stoffels de Varsberg to Stoffels d'Hautefort,as there were no male heirs left of d'Hautefort family...they had 4 sons and Francois Stoffels d'Hautefort is a descendant of one of them!
