Pippa Middleton and James Matthews' wedding date revealed
James Matthews and Pippa Middleton will marry on 20 May
The 20,000-acre estate is owned by Newbury MP Richard Benyon, who is the richest MP in the House of Commons with a fortune estimated in excess of ?110m. He is good friends with Pippa and worked with her to raise funds for the Mary Hare School for deaf children in Berkshire – a charity Pippa is an ambassador for.
He also attended the wedding of Pippa's elder sister Kate to Prince William in 2011.
The wedding will take place at St Marks' Church located close to Englefield Estate
A source told HELLO! Pippa chose the church because it is both pretty and discreet, with one saying: "Pippa is a traditional girl and wanted to marry close to home. There is no particular significance with May 20 – it is just the date that they have decided on."
The source added: "There have been ludicrous reports suggesting that her sister Kate is barred from the wedding – nothing could be further from the truth. It is ridiculous to suggest she will not play a part in the day."
Pippa wanted to marry close to home
Whilst the guest list has not been confirmed, Pippa's nephew Prince George, who turns four next July, is tipped to be a pageboy and Princess Charlotte, who will just have celebrated her second birthday, a flower girl.
Prince Harry will also be expected to be in attendance and there are reports that Spencer Matthews, who made his name on reality show Made in Chelsea, will be the best man.
Pippa's father Michael Middleton will walk her down the aisle which will be decked out with colourful spring flowers likes daffodils and tulips, but no doubt it will be a less daunting task than when he also walked Kate up the aisle at Westminster Abbey.
