In the UK, pre nuptial agreements are not legally recognised as such documents as they are in countries like the USA for example.
However, if both parties entered into the agreement freely and knowingly, then if the matter went to court, baring any legal issues around the agreement or any other grounds that may arise, a UK court would normally allow the agreement to remain as an active legal contract, very much like an ordinary contract between to parties.
If it had that stipulation contained in the agreement and it has not been renewed on time, then as a contractual agreement, yes it would normally have expired.
