Pippa Middleton has always maintained that her friendship with James Matthews is platonic and played no part in her split from stockbroker Nico Jackson last year. But James has fuelled rumours about the pair’s relationship once more by going on holiday with the Middleton clan to the Caribbean island of St Barts.
It is not the first time Pippa has been spotted spending time with Mr Matthews, having previously holidayed with him at his parents’ resort in the Caribbean. And in September, when Pippa completed one of the most gruelling endurance races in the world just a day after her 32nd birthday, Mr Matthews was one of her teammates for the race.
Looking well rested after a week long break, Pippa and James Middleton touched down in London after their winter getaway to St Barts. The siblings of the Duchess of Cambridge marked the New Year by escaping to the balmy climes of St Barts but it was back to reality for the duo as they landed at Gatwick airport on Friday.
