Congrats are in order! Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, is allegedly engaged and plans to wed her 40-year-old beau, James Matthews, a new report claims. Find out all the details here!
Pippa Middleton‘s 40-year-old hedge fund boyfriend, James Matthews, allegedly popped the question last Saturday, a new report claims, so everyone should start preparing themselves for the most regal wedding since Kate and Prince William‘s!
This new relationship development comes less than a year after Pippa, 32, and James started dating. They did, however, briefly date in 2012. So it seems like it was fate for them to end up together!
Pippa was reportedly surprised by James’ proposal — once which he had prepared for. He even asked Pippa’s father for permission before moving forward with his proposal plan! So cute.
Plus, a source told the Daily Mail that Kate and Prince William are beyond thrilled for the couple — so are the Duchess’ parents, “James is a traditionalist and very much wanted to do things properly. That meant getting his future father in law’s consent. Mike and Carole are very happy. They like James and they are sure he will make Pippa very happy,” a family friend said.
Before reuniting with James, Pippa dated financier Nico Jackson for three years. And ever since Pippa showed up to Kate and Prince William’s 2011 wedding in her Alexander McQueen frock, fans have been following her quest for love. So we can only imagine they’re very happy to finally see Pippa engaged. We know we are!
At this time, it’s unclear when the couple will get married, but the Daily Mail predicts sometime in 2017.
