For years, Kate Middleton has been the one to receive all the glory.

Despite a famous cameo from Pippa’s behind at Kate and Wills’ wedding, Pippa has remained mostly in the background while her sister populated the Royal family.

Now, it’s her turn!

Incredible news this morning is that Pippa Middleton is now engaged, after her hedge fund beau, James Matthews, proposed while the pair were in the Lake District.

The 40-year-old millionaire apparently asked Pippa’s dad, Michael Middleton for his consent before getting down on one knee and the proposal is said to have left the former party planner ‘completely surprised!’

A lavish wedding is apparently on the cards for 2017.

The couple enjoyed a brief romance in 2012, and second time around were only together for a year before Matthews popped the question.

Their wedding will be the most glamorous and talked about match since Kate Middleton’s to Prince William five years ago.

‘I would say she’s the lucky one. He’s one hell of a catch,’ a source said.

Another family friend says: ‘Mike and Carole are very happy. They like James and they are sure he will make Pippa very happy.’

Congratulations to the happy couple!
