Nicky Hilton To Marry James Rothschild At Kensington Palace
Nicky Hilton is getting married to James Rothschild on July 10 at Kensington Palace in London.
Who Is James Rothschild?
Hilton, the infamous heiress, and Rothschild, himself the heir to a European banking family, began dating in 2011 and announced their engagement in August of 2014. While Hilton, 31, has been in the press for years, albeit less so than her sister Paris Hilton, Rothschild, 30, has kept a relatively low profile. He does not appear to be active on any social media platform, though his fiancée occasionally shares photos of the cute couple on her Instagram page.
It’s unclear whether, like Hilton, who works as a designer, Rothschild has left the family banking business or whether he works in the industry his family is known for. Regardless of his career choices, what is known about Rothschild is that he is rich. In anticipation of his wedding, Rothschild put his family’s country home on the market for over $20 million. The home has been in Rothschild’s family for three generations, and includes a large farming estate where his family used to raise horses.
Rothschild also appears to be quite the romantic. He proposed to Hilton on their anniversary in 2013 in Italy, where they originally met at Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt’s wedding in 2011. “They went on a romantic anniversary trip over the weekend. He took her out on a boat into the middle of Lake Como and he proposed, got down on one knee and everything. It was incredibly romantic and beautiful,” a source told Us Weekly.
According to a source, Rothschild even flew to the U.S. to ask Hilton’s parents for her hand in marriage – Rothschild is based in England.
