It’s sure to be a happy day in the Middleton/Matthews family, as Pippa’s younger brother-in-law Spencer has announced news of his engagement to model Vogue Williams.
Spencer is the younger brother of Pippa Middleton’s now-husband, James. He played the important role of best man at the couple’s Spring wedding – ushering in none other than Prince Harry and Prince William ahead of the ceremony.
And now he’ll be planning a wedding of his own, as it’s been revealed that he proposed to girlfriend of one-year Vogue on Thursday night.
A spokesperson for the couple said, “The couple are absolutely over the moon and thrilled to share their exciting news.”
Spencer went down on one knee on stage after a production of The Lion King in the West End. The couple took part in a special behind-the-scenes tour of the West End hit show before they took to the stage for the special moment in private, after audiences had emptied out.
And it sounds as though 28-year-old Spencer spared no expense for his bride-to-be! Rumour has it that the former Made In Chelsea star splashed out a whopping £150,000 on the dazzling diamond engagement ring – a drop in the ocean given that he’s estimated to be worth around £2.8 million.
32-year-old Vogue quickly took to social media to share the happy news. She shared a picture of her showing off the sparkling whopper of a ring.
In the caption, she posted a ring and some heart emojis alongside Spencer’s name, writing,”❤️💍❤️ @spencermatthews”
Spencer also revealed the exciting news with the same picture, excitedly proclaiming, “SHE SAID YES…. ❤️”
Reportedly, Spencer Matthew’s sweet proposal was inspired by the couple’s recent trip to Disneyland Paris.
While they’ve been together for just over a year, getting together in February 2017 – the pair are clearly smitten.
The reality star and model often share pictures of on social media of their lives. In fact, just recently Spencer posted an adorbs pic of the pair at the NTAs. In the caption, he wrote, “The best girl in the world… @voguewilliams”. Aww!
Spencer played a huge role in the wedding of the year in 2017. He stood by brother James’ side as he wed Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa, in an intimate ceremony at St. Mark’s Church, Englefield.
Spencer rubbed shoulders with royalty as he welcomed Prince William and Prince Harry to the event.
However, Vogue wasn’t allowed to attend the star-studded nuptials, given that her relationship with Spencer was so new. Though, it’s likely though that we’ll see both Pippa and James at Spencer’s wedding.
