Pippa Middleton is reportedly set to marry her banker lover Nico Jackson after six months of dating.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, who shot to fame at Kate and William’s wedding in April 2011, is engaged to the 35-year-old, according to The Sunday People.
“Pippa loved seeing Kate go down the aisle and now it is her turn for a fairytale wedding,” a friend of the couple revealed to the paper. “She couldn’t be more sure that Nico is the right man for her.”
Pippa, who released the party planning book ‘Celebrate‘ last year, is reportedly planning to announce the engagement after her 30th birthday next friday.
The younger sister of the Duchess rose to fame in 2011 when she followed behind bride Kate wowing in a Alexander McQueen dress as a bridesmaid.
In late July, Pippa was one of the first people to meet newborn Prince George as she waited at Kensington Palace with brother James Middleton for the new parents to come home.
A source close to the 29-year-old revealed preparations for the nuptials is at an early stage but it is possible new mum Kate will have a large role in the big day. “Everyone knows how close the sisters are but at this stage the final arrangements are a long way off.”
Pippa is currently acting as a contributing editor for Vanity Fair magazine, while Nico, who studied at Kingston University in Surrey, works in the city at Deutsche Bank.
The couple are yet to confirm or deny the reports.
