Pippa Middleton Engaged to James Matthews

Monday, July 18, 2016

Good evening royal fashion friends. I have been completely underwater these past two weeks and will be for another two, so I apologize for that, but I take the shortest of breaks to relay the exciting rumor that Pippa Middleton may indeed be engaged to boyfriend Matthew...this is terrible, but what is his name again? Oops, James Matthews! Sorry James. I should remember that--two Jameses in the family now! The beautiful brunette coyly hid her left hand from photographers at the British Heart Foundation's annual gala, where she posed alone and with Princess Eugenie, among others. 



People magazine is reporting:
According to [Richard] Kay, Matthews got down on one knee to propose last weekend while the pair were in the picturesque Lake District of northwest England. (A rep for Middleton has not returned requests for comment.)

Middleton, 32, earlier fueled rumors on Monday when she appeared at a charity fundraiser and notably kept her left hand hidden from photographers.
There is no official confirmation at this time. I think royal watchers are in a flurry of excitement because Richard Kay is a veteran reporter on the royal beat and is pretty accurate. I don't think the pictures from the British Heart Foundation are anything to go by, because if she is wearing a ring, someone would have seen it. The always delightful FugGirls have pointed out that no matter the reality, Pips certainly wants us to think she is engaged, and I agree. Common sense also tells us that one of these days Pippa is bound to get engaged, so...this could indeed be it.  

I'll update when I get back from dinner.

  1. If it is true - this is exciting! Do you expect the Middletons to make a statement? I would imagine so, right? And seeing George and Charlotte at the wedding! And Kate! Agh this is too too exciting. I don't want to get too excited yet so I'll wait with baited breadth but for now, (hopefully) congratulations Pippa!!

    1. Will we see Kate as a bridesmaid? Like Pippa was for her? ?!?!?! That would be Kate as we've never seen!

    2. I doubt they would make a public announcement with the media there. Remember they are not royal or from the aristocracy. Not a putdown as I like the Middletons but Pippa getting engaged is just like the rest of us really in that regard. I can see them being asked by the paps perhaps but a photo call with a little chat? Doubtful... this doesn't mean a royal affair or little heirs.

    3. FYI they released a statement. No media setting.

      Very exciting news.

  2. I think it's for real. Saw another picture of her standing alone with her hand completely behind her back (a little awkward looking)

  3. I know this is off topic but, Did Rebecca Deacon really quit?!?! I saw an article on the dailymail saying she quit because Miguel Head dumped her for Prince Harrys personal assistant.

    1. If she is no longer working with Kate, I doubt she quit. I checked the site given to prove she was a private secretary. The letter I saw signed by Rebecca was in response to a personal letter directed to Rebecca and the KP staff. The body of the letter and
      envelope contained several errors similar to those seen in a couple of official letters, statements
      issued from Catherine's office.
      That site was most informative, in that it included the information that all official
      correspondence, including thank-you letters, are issued through the correspondence office of Clarence House-this includes those of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Henry.
      I wondered about Rebecca's prominent appearance at Wimbledon for the first time last week. A great way to say goodbye and allow her to maintain dignity?

    2. Miguel Head is leaving, not Rebecca Deacon

    3. I got that wrong. Nick Loughran is leaving not Miguel Head. Rebecca dated Nick

      Delete
    4. Rebecca Deacon did not date Miguel
      Head, she dated Nick Loughran who has left KP for another position. They broke off quite a while ago. Rebecca has been at all Kate's engagements including the Air Tattoo.

    5. Unknown, maybe someone else has already answered this but it was Nick Loughran who left, supposedly after breaking with RD and starting to date another assistant.

      I think the Duchess would do anything possible to keep RD by her side!

  4. First: yay!!! So happy for her :-) Second: I don't get the "coyly hiding left hand" that celebrities do ... then don't wear the ring and explain to your fiancé why you're leaving it at home!

    My mind starts running about "what kind of wedding would Pippa want? Hometown Berkshire wedding? London wedding? Scotland wedding?", and "what kind of wedding would Kate have had if she didn't have to wed in front of the world?

    I also imagine, due to Kate's life, that this quickly has to go through the Cambridges office to start suggesting possible dates. I hate to say it, but I believe a lot is pencilled into the Cambridge calendar far in advance, and some flexibility will have to be on the newly engaged couples part due to who their family is.

    But yay!! I've like the idea of James, from what I've read about him, and I'm sure Carole and Kate are very excited to wedding plan again!

  6. Why hiding her hand? Yhe simplest thing to do is just not wearing the rin, unless you want attention on you.

  7. I don't want to sound harsh, but why would she hide her hand? She had better not wear herring if she did not want to fuel rumours. It seems so odd to me...

    I think it is true by the way, but for a reason: the pap Tanna said it is true, and Tanna is always right, since years ago he used to be tipped off by the Middletons.

  8. Great news for Pippa - I too am intrigued as to the style of nuptials she will favour - her intended seems like a nice guy (apart from the connection to Spencer from MIC, though I am sure he also not the worst) Nothing nicer than engagement news <3 xx

    1. It sounds like James is very different from his brother in many ways ... And we all know all families have their dynamics ... The steady, reliable child ... The wild child ... Etc.
