Engagement rumours continue to surround Prince William and Kate Middleton. But it looks like Kate may be pipped to the post by her former beau, Rupert Finch.
Rupert, 31, has been dating Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs (pictured), 27, for two years.
The relationship has been labelled "serious" by friends of the couple, who added: "They have both told chums they realise they are at an age when marriage would make a lot of sense."
According to the Daily Mail, Lady Natasha - who is close to Prince William - is a committed Christian and refuses to live with estate agent boyfriend Rupert until they have walked up the aisle.
A source told the paper: "She lives by some pretty strict religious rules - and for that reason she is eager to be married before they move in together."
