She first dated her now-husband Matthews back in 2012, but their initial courtship only lasted a few months. However, when she split with her subsequent boyfriend, Pippa was spotted at Matthews’ house soon after, in October 2015, leading to reports that they were back together.
A source revealed to E! at the time, “James [Matthews] has always been on the scene. He is super charismatic and charming, good looking and always held a torch for Pippa. They have always had insane chemistry, but Pippa was always in a relationship.”
