Pippa Middleton seen for first time since brother James’ secret wedding in France


PIPPA MIDDLETON has been seen for the first time since her brother’s secret wedding in the South of France.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister was pictured enjoying a stroll in the London sunshine on Saturday afternoon. The 38-year-old stunned in a white knitted jumper, grey jeans and a pair of Jimmy Choo trainers as she took a walk near her home in Chelsea.

Her appearance in the capital came a week after the Middletons and the Cambridges travelled to France for a lavish wedding.

James Middleton tied the knot with fiancée Alize Thevenet in the rural village of Bormes-les-Mimosas on Saturday, September 11.

Pippa attended the ceremony with her husband James Matthews and their two children Arthur and Grace.

She was joined by her sister Kate, 39, Prince William and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Carole and Michael Middleton also made the trip to see their son get married.

In a post on Twitter, royal expert Robert Jobson wrote: “Pippa Middleton is seen for the first time since her brother James’ secret south of France wedding as she walks in sunshine in west London.”

Pippa was thrust into the public spotlight when Kate and William got married in April 2011.

Pippa began dating her husband James Matthews in 2016 and tied the knot to the financier at St Mark’s Church in Englefield in May 2017.

A year later, the couple welcomed their first child, Arthur, who was born in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, the same place the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her three children.

Pippa and her multi-millionaire partner welcomed their second child, Grace, in March this year.

Pippa and Kate’s brother confirmed he had got married 24 hours after he said his nuptials.

In a post on Instagram, he wrote: “Yesterday I married the love of my life surrounded by family, friends and of course a few dogs in the beautiful village of Bormes-les-Mimosas.

“Words cannot describe how happy I am.”

James, 34 and Thevenet got engaged in September 2019, but they had to postpone their wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The couple met in bizarre circumstances three years ago and only got talking after James’ dog, Ella, approached Alize in the Kensington Club in Chelsea.

James previously told the Daily Telegraph: “The two of us Ella and me were at the South Kensington Club in Chelsea.

“Ella was lying at my feet under the table; realising she might want some water, I trusted her to take herself over to the water bowl across the terrace.

“However, she made a beeline for Alizée. Rather embarrassed, I went over to apologise and bring Ella back.

“But Alizée thought I was the waiter and ordered her drink while continuing to stroke Ella, who at this point was on her back lapping up the attention.

“Little did I know, but I had just met my future wife, all thanks to Ella.

“If I hadn’t trusted Ella, I wouldn’t have brought her to the South Kensington Club and she wouldn’t have been able to say hi to the woman who became my fiancée.”
