The world is abuzz with the news of Pippa’s recent engagement to James Matthews! We all know she looks lovely in white! The couple made it official on July 17th, and while most people are curious when and where the wedding will be (and if Prince George will be the ring bearer)…we’re curious about Pippa’s future name-change choice.
Will Pippa change her name after marriage? Let’s look at the facts. Pippa is 32 and benefits from name recognition as a socialite, author, and columnist. Those two factors would point to her keeping her name or perhaps hyphenating, which is called double-barreling in England. Romance and tradition are two factors that cannot be plotted scientifically, so as wild cards they could change Pippa’s decision and have her carrying the new moniker of Mrs. Pippa Matthews after her wedding. We think James’ opinion on name-change will come into play as the newlyweds begin to make life choices together.
Regardless of her name-change choice, we wish Pippa a lifetime of love and happiness in her marriage!
