It’s almost three years since her sister Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge became engaged and now Pippa Middleton is following in her footsteps.
The 29-year-old party planner is set to marry her stockbroker boyfriend of six months Nico Jackson in spring 2014.
According to friends of Pippa, 35-year-old Nico got down on one knee earlier this year shortly before accompanying the brunette beauty to Wimbledon.
The couple, who are expected to officially announce the betrothal on Friday as Pippa celebrates her 30th birthday, are set to have a wedding ceremony that’ll be far more low-key than that of William and Kate.
Pippa is taking a very hands-on approach with the engagement and is designing the wedding rings as well as organising the reception at the family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
Carole and Michael are both overjoyed that their second child is tying the knot with Nico, who has already holidayed with them and is said to be very relaxed around the whole Middleton clan.
