Pippa Middleton and husband James Matthews are enjoying their honeymoon in Australia. According to reports, the honeymoon has cost $150,000 (£120,000) so far. The newlyweds earlier spent three days in Kakadu National Park. They got off a small charter plane at Darwin Airport to move to their next destination, Perth.
Pippa Middleton was wearing a knee-length patterned dress that was tied off at the waist. She also wore a narrow brown leather belt to compliment the look. Her open-toed sandals and brown-rimmed designer sunglasses completed the glamorous look.
Pippa’s husband James Matthews, on the other hand, was wearing a casual blue shirt rolled halfway up his forearms. His brown belt matched Pippa’s. He was also wearing dusty tan shoes and light gray chinos. James wore an expensive watch to complete the look.
Pippa Middleton and husband James Matthews were holding hands as they walked towards the terminal to continue their honeymoon in Australia. The couple enjoyed a lot of activities in their earlier schedule. They spotted crocodiles from a river boat, watched buffaloes and wallabies on open-top safaris, and engaged in fishing.
The resort the couple stayed in has an area of 300 square kilometers. It does not have any access to television, mobile phone, or internet. It helps guests enjoy time away from modern civilization, the Daily Mail Online reported.
Pippa Middleton had a lavish wedding with the multi-millionaire entrepreneur. However, that was not the end of spending money. Her honeymoon is so expensive that media outlets have named it as “moneymoon.” The honeymoon consists of personal butlers who serve them round the clock.

The couple will have their own seaplane and first-class flights, as they enjoy their stay at private beaches. Kate Middleton’s sister is also going to wear numerous expensive designer outfits. Moreover, there is no denying the fact that the couple chose one of the most luxurious honeymoon destinations in the world. The honeymoon is already in its third week, and it is far from over.
According to reports, Pippa Middleton’s well-publicized wedding cost $1.5 million (£1.2 million). Seems like the 33-year-old is in no mood to restrict the spending anytime soon. The wedding took place on May 20, but the expenditure is still going on in full swing.
Here is one fact to consider to have an idea how expensive Pippa Middleton’s honeymoon has been. British couples spend $4,000 (£3,164) on average for their honeymoon. Pippa has spent more than that for her costumes only. Pippa’s honeymoon with her 41-year-old husband is costing 30 times more than the average, the Daily Mail Online earlier reported.
James Matthews is a highly successful hedge fund manager. In addition, his family is one of the wealthiest ones. His parents own Eden Rock St. Barths that costs $1,000 for each night. According to The Net Worth, James Matthews’ net worth is estimated to be more than $2.6 billion as of 2016. He owns private jet Pilatus PC-12, which costs about $4 million.
According to reports, James Matthews proposed to Pippa Middleton in summer 2016. The engagement ring is believed to have cost him around $322,000. The 41-year-old’s company Eden Rock Capital Management advises some of the wealthiest people in the United Kingdom on investment and lending strategies.
