Pippa Middleton's wedding isn't wasting any time planning her wedding.

The 33-year-old younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge has set a date for her upcoming nuptials to millionaire fiancé James Matthews.

Pippa, who was only dating the hedge fund manager for 12 months before he popped the question, will walk up the aisle next May with her royal sister in attendance.

The world's most famous bridesmaid will have her own moment in white next Spring, according to People.

Sources close to the party planner and columnist said she is "super excited" for her big day.

"[They] have a lot in common – he’s charming and old-fashioned. Everyone thinks he’s quite the catch."

The couple currently reside in his expansive £17m Kensington mansion are busy planning their nuptials since James got down on bended knee during a romantic walk in the Lake District in July.

Unlike Kate's lavish wedding to William at Westminster Abbey in 2011, insiders suggest Pippa's nuptials to hedge fund millionaire James will be a much quieter affair.

It is thought the pair will marry in Bucklebury, the Berkshire home of Pippa’s parents Carol and Michael, where they will "most likely host it in a marquee in their garden," a source divulged to Britain's Bella magazine.

There is also speculation that Catherine's children - George, three, and Charlotte, 14 months, - may have roles as page boy and flower girl.
