James Matthews is an investment banker

Pippa Middleton has been snapped enjoying an evening out with the older brother of Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews.

Investment banker James Matthews, 37, helped Kate‘s little sister into a taxi after they dined at an exclusive London restaurant a few weeks ago.

This isn’t the first time that Pippa, 29 – who split from long-term love Alex Loudon in 2011 – has been seen with former Eton pupil James.

They’ve had dinner at the Queen’s Club tennis centre in Kensington and earlier this month were said to be ‘openly flirting’ at fashionable West End eatery Hakkasan.

‘They were deep in conversation and only had eyes for each other,’ a source tells the Sunday Mirror.

Pippa was all smiles and kept giggling. They stayed for nearly three hours and didn’t seem to want the meal to end.’
