James Middleton, the younger brother of the Duchess of Cambridge, is reportedly in a secret romance with TV presenter Donna Air with love said to be blossoming after the cake entrepreneur felt inspired by the happy relationships his elder sister's are involved with.
According to insiders, the couple have been secretly dating for three months after meeting in February at the exclusive private members club No.5 Hertford Street.
The 25 year-old is reportedly keen to settle down after seeing sisters Pippa and Kate find love in their lives, an insider told the MailOnline especially with the prospect of becoming an uncle this summer.
Pippa, 28, who shares a flat with her brother in Chelsea, has been looking pretty loved up recently with business man Nico Jackson. The couple took their romance public earlier this year with the financier even joining the Middleton family on a holiday to Mustique in February along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Despite only dating for three months, Donna, 33, and James are said to be serious enough for the Byker Grove star to have introduced him to her daughter Freya, 9, who she had with ex-fiance Damian Aspinall.
A source told the MailOnline: "It’s still early days but James thinks she’s great," says a close friend of the pair.
"They’ve been out together to a few places – but they always choose discreet restaurants where they are less likely to get spotted."
The friend added: "They have been dating for about three months. They enjoy each other’s company and are getting to know each other.
"Donna thinks James is a kind and wonderful guy. He is a real gentleman and very generous and he is showing her a good time."
The pair were photographed together at the 44th birthday of New York socialite Heather Kerzner at Downtown restaurant in Mayfair last month, though guests were unaware of their secret relationship.
