We cannot wait…
Having announced their engagement in July 2016, Pippa Middleton and her hedge fund manager fiancé, James Matthews, are expected to tie the knot in a private ceremony in Englefield next month.
A few weeks ago Pippa, Kate and a few close friends spent a luxurious hen weekend in a chalet in the French Alps, where her bacholorette party were showered with gifts from Swatch watches and Ugg boots to personalised fragrances and leather notebooks.
Now that the hen-do is out of the way, the wedding is officially in sight and people have started speculating about all manner of things relating to the special day, from what hat Carole Middleton will be wearing to whether or not Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle will make a surprise appearance.
The Duchess of Cambridge is the obvious choice to be maid of honour, having helped Pippa plan both the hen weekend and the upcoming wedding – not to mention she’s due to return the favour to Pippa from 2011.
People have their doubts on whether the Duchess will play a big role though, with some suggesting that Kate wouldn’t want to steal her sister’s thunder on her big day. It looks like we will have to wait to see what role Kate will be playing on the big day, but one thing that’s for sure is that her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will be taking centre-stage.
Kensington Palace announced on Monday that Pippa’s royal niece and nephew will be walking down the aisle with her.
Prince George, 3 will be a page boy, whilst Princess Charlotte, 1, will be a bridesmaid, with some people speculating that Nikki Macfarlane will create the outfits – the same designer behind Kate’s bridesmaids and page boys.
In terms of Pippa’s wedding dress, the bookies’ favourite is a design by Alice Temperley, one of Pippa’s top favourites. It looks like we’ll have to wait till May 20th to find out.
