Wedding bells are ringing!
It’s official! Ellie Goulding is engaged to her boyfriend Caspar Jopling.
The British singer and now fiancé announced their engagement in a very traditional way. It was featured in the marriages section of the UK’s The Times newspaper.
On the announcement, Goulding had used her full name which is Elena.
Goulding and Jopling have been dating for 18-months.
The 31-year-old singer took to Twitter thanking everyone for their kind words.
Caspar Jopling just so happens to be one of those very smart people who attended Eton College (where Prince William and Prince Harry have previously studied), as well as Harvard University and has studied the History of Art and Architecture.
After finishing his studies at Harvard, Jopling moved to New York where he’s currently living in a Soho apartment with Goulding.
Jopling comes from a very posh family as seen in the newspaper announcement ‘The Honorable Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and his mother Mrs. Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire’. Casper’s father is the son of famous politician Michael Jopling, and Casper’s uncle is the ultra-famous art dealer Jay Jopling.
Both the couple have Royal connections – Goulding performed at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton back in 2011, while Jopling is good friends with Princess Eugenie who used to work for Jopling’s uncle. Back in April, the couple enjoyed a vacation to Jordan with Princess Beatrice.
Before Caspar Jopling, Goulding has dated a fair few guys such as ex-One Direction member Niall Horan, fellow Brit Ed Sheeran, DJ Calvin Harris, judo champion Bobby Rich, fitness instructor Sam Karl, McFly’s Dougie Poynter, British actor Jeremy Irvine, EDM artist Skrillex, DJ Greg James and Prince Harry.
