According to some reports, Pippa Middleton plans to move her family to the country, away from the press. The Cambridges announced similar arrangements for the royal children.
The married couple recently purchased a £15m home in Berkshire near Bucklebury. It is the place where Pippa, along with her siblings, grew up. Aside from that, their parents are still living in Berkshire.
Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also plan to move to Berkshire. The royal family will move to a house on the Queen’s Windsor estate this summer. At the same time, the family aims to maintain Kensington Palace as their home in London.
The eldest children, Prince George and Prince Charlotte, will be moving out of their current prep school, Thomas’s Battersea. Afterwards, the children will soon enrol in a school near Windsor.
How Pippa Middleton and James Matthews’ Romance Bloomed

Unfortunately, the romance rumours between the two ended when Pippa Middleton confirmed her relationship with Nico Jackson in 2013. However, Pipple Middleton and Nico Jackson eventually ended their relationship in 2015.

Two years later, it was in October 2018 when the couple welcomed their first child, Arthur. Meanwhile, Pippa Middleton gave birth to their second child, Grace, in 2021. Her daughter shares her middle name, Elizabeth, with her aunt, Duchess Kate.
In June 2022, Pippa Middleton confirmed her pregnancy for their third baby. Shortly after, the couple finally welcomed their third bundle of joy. Despite the couple’s high-profile status, they were able to maintain an intimate and low-key relationship.
The couple lives in their house in London, which costs $22 million. It is a five-story and six-bedroom residence, including an underground movie theatre and a gym. They began renovating the property the same year they got married.
James Matthews works in finance; he is also the heir to the Scottish title of Laird of Glen Affric. The hedge fund manager is estimated to have a fortune of more than $2 billion.
