According to the Daily Mail, Pippa Middleton is officially off the market after her investment banker boyfriend James Matthews popped the question.
Insiders reveal James got down on one knee during a weekend escape to the Lake District recently.
The report also claims James, 40, asked Pippa’s father Michael Middleton for her hand in marriage.
“James is a traditionalist and very much wanted to do things properly. That meant getting his future father in law’s consent,” an insider tells.
“Mike and Carole are very happy. They like James and they are sure he will make Pippa very happy," the source adds.
Apparently the proposal caught the 32-year-old off guard and she is over the moon.
The younger sister of Kate Middleton did little to dispel the engagement rumours when she stepped out at the Frost Family Summer Party in London on Monday evening, expertly hiding her left hand.

Insiders speculate the pair will wed in a high society wedding next year and it's already being tipped as the biggest nuptials since the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Duchess Catherine in 2011.
Pippa and James, who dated briefly in 2012, rekindled their romance in January this year shortly after she split with businessman Nico Jackson, whom she dated for three years.
Meanwhile James’ brother Spencer Matthews is reality TV royalty thanks to his role in the hit TV show Made in Chelsea, which documents the glamorous lives of the London elite.
Something to hide? Pippa Middleton made sure her left hand was out of sight when she stepped in London on Monday evening.
Pippa became a household name in 2011 after stealing the show as the Maid of Honour at her sister's wedding to Prince William.
Dubbed "Her Royal Hotness" thanks to her stunning white bridesmaid's dress, the British beauty was praised for her enviable figure and down-to-earth demeanor.
"It sounds funny to say, but we saw it, as just a family wedding. And actually, I didn't realize, perhaps, the scale of it until afterwards. We all took on the the roles as any family would," she later reflected of the momentous day during one of her only interviews with USA show Today.
