Pippa Middleton is getting married this weekend. It should be a beautiful wedding…with many very wealthy guests.
Both Pippa and her fiancee James Matthews are super rich. But how rich are they? How much is the wedding going to cost? Read on…
Pippa Middleton may not be as rich as her sis, but she’s not poor. Alone, Pippa has made nearly half a million dollars per year over the past few years, mostly from her writing and publishing, according to the Daily Mail.
She has a party book, called “Celebrate!”, which is likely to be the main source of that money.
But Pippa has another major source of money: her coming inheritance. Pippa’s parents, Michael Middleton and Carole Middleton, are very wealthy aristocrats (yes, Kate isn’t their only tie to the royals).
Michael and Carole Middleton started a business called Party Pieces, which got a lot of fanfare when Kate was married several years ago. According to The Sun, they live in a $10 million house, and their business is worth over $50 million.
That would put Pippa’s inheritance share at around $15 million. Not too bad.
Currently, we estimate Pippa Middleton net worth at $1.5 million. But her future income potential is much higher.
But James Matthews, Pippa’s fiancee is no slouch either. Matthews is also the child of super rich parents, who have a hotel business.
But Matthews has gone off on his own and has gone from being a race car driver to being a hedge fund manager. As a hedge fund manager, James Matthews net worth is $2.6 billion, according to Heavy.com.
Matthews is also a royal and an heir to a 10,000 acre estate in Scotland. That’s worth a pretty penny.
Pippa’s wedding is likely to be an expensive affair, but it won’t be as lavish as it could be — because they wanted to keep it small.
The wedding reception will be at Pippa’s parents’ house. And it will include a $125,000 tent to cover the guests from rain. It will also include a fly-by of a WWII airplane.
