Pippa Middleton has reportedly moved in with her boyfriend after two months of dating. The Duchess of Cambridge's sister is having a "trial run" living at James Matthews' £17million town house in Chelsea, a sign that their blossoming romance is going from strength to strength.

"It's all moved very quickly," a source close to the couple told the Sun. "They've been friends for a long time, but James has always been keen.

"They've tested living there and all seems to have gone well. As she was spending so much time at James' it made sense to keep stuff there."

The fledgling relationship also appears to have the approval of Pippa's mother Carole Middleton; on Thursday evening she was spotted dining out with the happy couple at the upmarket Indian restaurant Rasoi.

Pippa, 32, and 40-year-old James – the older brother of Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews – first started dating back in 2012. Following their split, she dated banker Nico Jackson for three years, but they ended their relationship in October following his move to Geneva.

James and Pippa saw in the New Year together on the Caribbean island of St Barts, where his parents own and manage the exclusive Eden Rock Hotel. Rather than stay there, however, the couple stayed in a villa in the hills, overlooking the capital Gustavia, with her younger brother James Middleton, 28, and his girlfriend Donna Air.

A source told the Daily Mail at the time: "James is really into Pippa and she is falling into step. There is affection between them."

James, an old Etonian, is the chief executive of investment firm Eden Rock Capital Management, which he founded in 2001.
