Pippa Middleton is reported to be secretly engaged to her stockbroker boyfriend Nico Jackson. Well, she kept that one quiet!
The posh pair, who have been dating for six months, are thought to have got engaged on the downlow so as not to steal sister Kate Middleton‘s royal baby thunder. Aw! “They didn’t want an announcement before Pippa’s birthday because they didn’t want to take the shine off Kate and her baby”, an insider told The Sunday People.
Stockbroker Nico is thought to have popped the question just before Wimbledon kicked off back in June, and with a spring wedding reportedly on the cards, the smitten couple are now expected to announce their happy news after bride-to-be’s Pip’s 30th next Friday.
“Pippa loved seeing Kate go down the aisle and now it is her turn for a fairytale wedding”, the source continued. “She couldn’t be more sure that Nico is the right man for her. They are such a good fit for each other and their families get on really well. Everyone is so happy for Pippa.”
So will Duchess Kate be returning the favour and playing maid of honour when her little sister’s big day finally comes round? “Everyone knows how close the sisters are but at this stage the final arrangements are a long way off”, the insider spilled. “Pippa’s wedding will be a huge occasion but if Kate is bridesmaid it will be even more high-profile.”
That it will be. We’ve already started rounding up our posh pals and gunning for a plus one!
