ROYAL WEDDINGS THROUGH TIME

The Duchess of Cambridge's little sister is said to have told her closest chums only a few weeks ago that Nico Jackson is 'the one' and, apparently, they are expected to so make the big announcement soon.

And so the focus changes to wedding plans and venues...

Recently spotted in Scotland on an all-girls shooting party, Pippa has allegedly set her heart on a romantic do in the Highlands.

A source close to the socialite said to The Daily Mail: "A wedding in London would never compare to her sister Kate's of course, and the prospect of erecting a marquee at her parents' house in Bucklebury for a party after the wedding service would be too low-key for her tastes these days."

We'll have to wait and see!
