Kate's sister Pippa Middleton reported engaged

PIPPA Middleton - the sister of Britain's Duchess Catherine - has reportedly got engaged to her boyfriend Nico Jackson.

The party planner - who is the sister of Britain's Duchess Catherine, the wife of Prince William - was surprised by a "romantic and grand" proposal from boyfriend Nico Jackson during their vacation to the luxury Oberi Amarvilas resort in India earlier this month.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "It was exactly how he planned it. Very romantic and grand."

The couple - who have been dating for 15 months - have been celebrating their good news in private and are looking forward to a family Christmas before heading off on another trip, skiing in the Alps.

It was previously claimed that Pippa, 30, and Nico, 36, plan to marry in Scotland.

A source said recently: "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."

There was some talk of Pippa hunting out suitable wedding venues on her next trip to Scotland. Nico loves the country too - he thinks it's beautiful - but when it comes to wedding planning he'll leave that to Pippa. He will go along with whatever she wants. And what she wants at the moment is a wedding in the Scottish Highlands.

"Nico would love a honeymoon in the Caribbean and a great bachelor party."

Pippa attracted the attention of the world when she was the maid of honour at the wedding of her sister Catherine - formerly known as Kate Middleton - to heir-to-the-throne William on April 29, 2011.

Pippa wowed in a white figure-hugging dress - designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen.
