And it’s OFFICIAL.
Pippa Middleton got popped the big Q by her boyfriend James Matthews yesterday, and while we reported that EVERYONE saw it coming, it is weird to think that little sis Pippa is off the market. End of an era (remember all that tanner and those party pics? Sigh).
Girl started dating the handsome hedge fund manager less than a year ago (though they did date briefly in 2012) and now the two are gonna be married! And if this seems like the whitest engagement in history, you are right! Matthews, 40, even asked Pippa’s father for permission for his daughter’s hand before popping the question.
“James is a traditionalist and very much wanted to do things properly. That meant getting his future father in law’s consent,” a friend of the couple tells DailyMail.
Another family friend says: “Mike and Carole are very happy. They like James and they are sure he will make Pippa very happy.”
Another friend told me Pippa was “completely and totally surprised” by the proposal but accepted it at once.
Not much more to report except I’m sure that horses, more collard shirts and fancy hats will be involved in this engagement/wedding. Like I said…the WHITEST news ever!
