Six years after Pippa Middleton walked down the aisle behind her big sister Kate in Westminster Abbey, she will now walk the aisle again as the bride.

The 33-year-old Middleton is set to be wed to 41-year-old financier, James Matthews.

Although it’s no royal wedding the British newspapers are all over it–since Pippa practically became a celebrity across the pond after appearing as Kate’s bridesmaid back in 2011.


Pippa and James met back in 2007 while she was vacationing in St. Barth’s with her family. Although Middleton had a boyfriend at the time, the two kept in touch. They briefly dated back in 2012 before Pippa went on to have a three-year relationship with a stockbroker, according to Page Six.

Matthews and Middleton reconnected once again in 2015 and the aristocrat proposed within a year with a stunning $318,000 engagement ring.

Although the couple will not be joining the royal family, Matthews’ father belongs to the Scottish gentry and holds the title of the Laird of Glen Affric, a distinction that will be passed on to Pippa’s soon-to-be husband. Middleton will become Lady Glen Affric.

The younger Middleton and Matthews will be married on Saturday May 20 at a church in rural England.

Of course her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge and brother-in-law, the Duke of Cambridge will be in attendance with their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, participating in the wedding. Prince Harry will also be in attendance with his American actress girlfriend Meghan Markle.
