Actress set to marry

Keira Knightley is engaged to Klaxons keyboardist James Righton.

The couple, who met through mutual friend Alexa Chung, 28, have been dating for 15 months.

‘I can confirm that Keira is engaged to be married to James Righton,’ Keira‘s spokesperson tells Mail Online.

Keira and James, 28, prefer to keep their relationship out of the spotlight and the representative declined to comment further.

Actress Keira, 27, split from actor Rupert Friend after 5 years together at the beginning of 2011.

‘That’s the way things go, unfortunately,’ Keira‘s father Will Knightley said soon after the break up.

‘I’ve spoken to her recently. The only option is to get on with things.’
