If Pippa Middleton and James Matthews could have their way, they would want a simple and quiet family affair when they tie the knot in May 2017. A photo of the engaged couple looking happy and relaxed as they strolled a London street with their dogs was widely circulated. Is it a sign of things to come?
Kate Middleton’s younger sister and fiancé may have debunked news that their wedding will be one of the biggest celebrity nuptials in 2017. Then again, the modest wedding they want may escalate into something big as the special day approaches. For now, they are a vision of a happy, relaxed pair.
The recent news with accompanying photographs that show the celebrity couple enjoying time out, after getting caught in the whirl of pre-wedding preparations, was the first time the general public caught a glimpse of Middleton and Matthews again since their engagement a few months ago.
Middleton was dressed down even as she flashed her art deco engagement ring. The 33-year-old stunner will tie the knot in a local village church, the St Mark’s Englefield, and reception will follow at the Middleton family’s home near Bucklebury, Berks.
James Matthews, a banker, had been in the spotlight lately as many people from all corners of the world wondered who the man Kate Middleton’s svelte and pretty sister was marrying. Apart from the fact that he heads an investments advisory firm who lives in Chelsea, and who happened to share Pippa Middleton’s interest for rigorous sports activities, little is known about Matthews.
Pippa Middleton’s fiancé is undoubtedly a discreet person. Avid Royal watchers only get to see him with Middleton in photo opportunities, usually for sports-related events. One example was when James Matthews and Pippa Middleton took part in the charity cycle race Race Across America. Another was when the celebrity duo drummed up awareness for the UK’s National Skier’s and Boarder’s charity Disability Snowsport.
James Matthews and Pippa Middleton were also spotted watching Wimbledon while exchanging sweet glances at each other last July. Recent news stating that Middleton is feeling intense pressure as months pass as far as preparing for her wedding to Matthews is concerned may only be partially true.
Controversies have hounded Middleton since the announcement of her engagement to Matthews. Nonetheless, if a photo can say a thousand words, the recent one showing Pippa Middleton with James Matthews happily walking their dogs signify that they are still aglow with excitement and far from flustered.
