Pippa Middleton is engaged and if this was 2011 we’d be freaking out, because we all know she was the real star of that Royal Wedding between Prince William and Duchess Kate.

Still, Pippa’s betrothal to James Matthews, who is apparently a hedge fund manager and disappointingly not Prince Harry, is fantastic news for royal watchers and basically everyone else.

According to Britain’s Press Association, Matthews proposed to Middleton over the weekend while visiting the Lake District in England.

“Miss Pippa Middleton and Mr James Matthews are delighted to announce they became engaged on Sunday, July 17, and plan to marry next year,” the couple reportedly said in a statement to the Press Association.

Pippa and Kate’s father Michael Middleton also spoke to the Press Association. “Carole and I are absolutely thrilled with the news,” he said. “They make a wonderful couple and we wish them every happiness together.”

We already know that Pippa Middleton will make a gorgeous bride images of Kate’s Maid of Honor wearing white at the Royal Wedding caused millions to fall in love with Pippa, Kate’s mysterious and stunning younger sister.

Middleton stayed in the limelight for a little while, and many fans of the Royal Family shipped Middleton with Prince Harry, Prince Will’s younger brother.

Despite the rumors, there is no proof that Pippa and Prince Harry were ever a couple. However, there is proof that she and Matthews are a couple, and they’re set to wed in 2017.

Hopefully their wedding will be broadcast Royal Wedding-style.
