Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews To Be Related To Royalty

You may have heard a little rumour about Kate Middleton’s gorgeous sister Pippa getting engaged last night, with the 32-year-old set to marry hedge fund manager James Matthew after he proposed last weekend.

But did you know that James was actually the brother of Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, who is now going to be related to royalty?

We bet Christmas with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is truly a sight to behold.

Spencer has not yet acknowledged rumours of his brother’s engagement on social media but we’re willing to bet that he could not be happier, with James reportedly asking Pippa’s father Michael Middleton for permission before getting down on one knee.

A source told the Daily Mail: “James is a traditionalist and very much wanted to do things properly. That meant getting his future father in law’s consent.”

Unlike his famous brother, James shunned the spotlight and is said to be a self-made man despite coming from an incredibly wealthy family.

He and Pippa first dated back in 2012 before reconciling last year after Pippa split from financier Nico Jackson after three years together.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
