Pippa, 32, is the eldest of the Middleton siblings and has been dating her boyfriend (and now rumoured fiancee) James Matthews since the beginning of this year, however the couple have had a ‘on-again-off-again’ relationship since 2012.

Since splitting up from her long term boyfriend, Nico Jackson, at the end of last year, Pippa’s relationship with James, a hedge fund millionaire, has seemed to go from strength to strength this time around.

The pair looked loved up and happy whilst watching the tennis at Wimbledon at the beginning of the month, and the reports state that James, 40, asked Pippa’s father for his blessing only a week or so later.

The exciting engagement happened while the couple were taking a short break in the Lake District at the weekend, where James proposed to Pippa on a walk in the stunning landscape.

People are already speculating that James and Pippa’s wedding will be the most spectacular and talked-about wedding since Prince William and Duchess Kate’s wedding back in 2011.
