Pippa Middleton first came into the American consciousness because of a Royal wedding. That wedding, of course, was of Prince William and Pippa’s older sister, Kate Middleton.
And while it was certainly the now–Duchess of Cambridge’s day, now it’s time for Pippa Middleton to tie knot.
Within a month, Pippa’s wedding will take place. Knowing the fact that Pippa is herself a party-planning expert, it will perhaps be an occasion to remember. Below, a review of everything we know so far about the upcoming wedding.
Pippa is currently engaged to James Matthews, a fund manager who proposed Pippa the previous summer. The couple have been dating since, although previously they had been romantically linked.
Matthews’s parents own a hotel in St. Barth’s, which both of them have visited together a couple of times .
After the engagement, Pippa’s family members quickly expressed their happiness and were quite excited. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave a statement saying they were “absolutely delighted with the wonderful news.” On this special occasion, Pippa’s father, Michael Middleton, said, “Definitely they are wonderful couple, and we wish them luck and every happiness together.”
The wedding is scheduled take place on May 20. While that date was long speculated, it has been confirmed recently. And of course, invitees would have received their save-the-date cards many weeks ago.
The wedding ceremony is going to take place at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, Berkshire. Afterward, a reception will be held at Carole and Michael Middleton’s home, Bucklebury Manor, which is a Grade II–listed historical residence.
Despite Pippa memorably serving as the maid to honor her sister’s wedding, the Duchess of Cambridge will definitely not be a bridesmaid. However, Prince George is set to be a page boy, while Princess Charlotte might serve as a bridesmaid.
This Royal wedding has a long list of guests. But there has been wide speculation around two guests in particular—Prince Harry and his girlfriend, Meghan Markle. It has been widely expected that Prince Harry will attend. However, just yesterday words broke that Markle is invited to the reception—but not the ceremony.
