Kate Middletons sister, Pippa, and her banker fiance, will be marrying in May 2017, at her local parish.

The Mirror reports that the venue for the ceremony is St Mark’s Church in Englefield, Berkshire, UK, where the guest list is expected to contain only 150 people.

In contrast, KateMiddleton's royal wedding in 2011 had 1900 guests!

The Duchess, sister of the bride-to-be, is expected to be present at the ceremony, of course, alongside her husband, Prince William.

Kate might however not be able to play the same role that Pippa played during her own 2011 wedding.

For that ceremony five years ago, Pippa was her sister's Bridesmaid of honour, a role which is always played by unwed women of marriageable age in the bride's family.

In this instance, Kate is married and even has two kids.

Therefore, if Pippa wants her to be by her side as she walks down the aisle, it will be with the title of 'Matron of honour.'

The Mirror further adds that after the May 2017 wedding in the quaint church, the guests will be ushered to the bride's parents' backgarden.

Kate and Pippa's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, own a £6million manor in Bucklebury, Berkshire and plan to have a lavish marquee in the grounds on the wedding day.

We look forward to the grand event, and wish Pippa Middleton and James Matthews all the best.
