We heard the incredible news yesterday that Pippa and her Hedge Fund beau had gotten engaged. The pair shared a brief romance on 2012 before getting back together just a year ago and it’s believed they’ll tie the knot in 2017.

Her big sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William are said to be ‘absolutely delighted’ with the announcement and have given the newly engaged couple their blessing, according to a report on Daily Mail.

A spokesman for the Cambridges said: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are absolutely delighted with the news.’

Pippa’s father, Mr Middleton, added in a statement given to the Press Association: ‘Carole and I are absolutely thrilled with the news. They make a wonderful couple and we wish them every happiness together.’

Pippa’s diamond is far blingier than her sister’s Ceylon sapphire ring, which was once owned by Diana Princess of Wales.

Pippa’s huge diamond is surrounded by a cluster of smaller diamonds and caught the sunshine brilliantly as she stepped out wearing it on Tuesday.

Commenting on the dazzler, David Allen, Creative Director of 77 Diamonds, said: ‘Pippa is not one to be outdone by her sister, we know that after ‘that’ dress she wore at the Royal Wedding in 2011. ‘

Her centre diamond appears to be a 4 carat asscher cut diamond. ‘Given the nature of these step cut stones, the quality is paramount so the stone requires the highest of clarity gradings.

A flawless asscher diamond set in an octagonal halo ring such as this would fetch upwards of £200,000.’
