Pippa Middleton and hedge fund manager James Matthews have affirmed they are engaged to be married.
In a statement, Miss Middleton – the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge – and Mr Matthews said next year they’re planning to wed.
The couple became engaged during a trip – allegedly on Sunday to the Lake District.
Miss Middleton was the maid of honour when the duchess married Prince William in 2011.
“They make a wonderful couple and we wish them every happiness together,” he added.
Miss Middleton was wearing her engagement ring as she was pictured leaving her house.
The couple are reported to have been dating for about annually and were photographed at Wimbledon.
