Pippa Middleton is Engaged
Huge congratulations to Pippa Middleton! If you haven’t already heard the news, The Duchess of Cambridge’s little sister has been proposed to, and she said yes! She’s set to say ‘I do’ to her hedge fund fiancé James Matthews in what’s tipped to be the poshest wedding since her big sister’s royal nuptials!
According to the Daily Mail, the announcement comes less than a year after the couple began properly dating. Their wedding is “almost certain to be held next year” and “will be the most glamorous and talked about match since Kate Middleton’s to Prince William five years ago”. The Royal Wedding in 2011 helped make Pippa a star after her turn as her sister’s chief bridesmaid.
It seems her husband-to-be is a traditionalist at heart, as he reportedly asked Pippa’s father for permission for his daughter’s hand before popping the question. And a key member of the wedding party is sure to be James’ brother, Made in Chelsea’s lothario Spencer Matthews!
The announcement got the team at UKMums.TV thinking about the wedding planning process. Pippa and James certainly have lot to think about before their big day, with venues to find and a guest list to write, not forgetting the all-important dress!
We love a good wedding here at UKMums.TV, and can’t wait to see how it all unfolds! Have you got any advice for Pippa and her new fiancé for surviving the wedding planning? If so, we’d love to know. Tell us over on our Facebook and Twitter.
