James Middleton hints he’ll marry Donna Air
James Middleton has hinted he’ll marry Donna Air.
The 29-year-old heartthrob – who is the younger brother of Britain’s Duchess Catherine – has considered proposing to his TV presenter girlfriend but admitted he doesn’t think marriage is the “be-all and end-all.”
He told The Mirror newpaper: “We are thinking about where we are going next.
“I love Donna very much. Marriage is absolutely not something I’m scared of but it isn’t necessarily the be-all and end-all.”
Earlier this year it was reported James had called time on the relationship but the couple later released a statement rubbishing the claims.
James further poured cold water over rumours their relationship is on the rocks and gushed that Donna – who has a daughter, Freya, 13, from a previous relationship – makes him very happy.
He said: “We are quite purposeful, forward-thinking people, so we needed wind in our sails in order to progress.
“She makes me very happy [and] I think I make her very happy. I want children. I’ve said that before. I will have children, but you’ll have to wait.”
Meanwhile, the businessman admitted he was over-shadowed by his popular sisters – including Pippa Middleton – at boarding school
He said: “I have always joked that I have three mothers. I couldn’t get away with anything as a kid. Whether I got a bad mark or was told off, it would always end up getting back to my parents.
“My sisters were very successful and confident. It was, ‘Oh, you are Pippa’s brother! Are you Catherine’s brother?’
“And so I was automatically put into the top sports teams and academic sets. But I was a bit of a squirt when I first started, so then it would be, ‘Are you sure you’re a Middleton?'”
