He’s currently studying at the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford for his MBA. He also went to Eton College, the same school that Prince William and Prince Harry attended. Afterward, he studied History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University, where he also joined the rowing team.

Caspar’s dad is The Honorable Nicholas Jopling, son of politician Thomas Michael Jopling, Baron Jopling, while his uncle is famous art dealer Jay Jopling. His mom, who is divorced from his father, is Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, owner of the estate Frickley Hall, northwest of Doncaster.

According to Yorkshire Post, his family is famous in equestrian circles and holds a tournament, called the Frickley Horse Trials, on their estate.

How did Caspar and Ellie meet?

It has been reported than Caspar and Ellie met through Princess Eugenie.

Doncaster Free Press mentioned that Princess Eugenie used to work with Caspar’s uncle Jay at an online auction platform, Paddle8. Caspar and Princess Eugenie then became friends in 2016—the same year that Ellie Goulding was linked to Prince Harry.

Ellie and Princess Eugenie maintained their friendship even after Ellie’s rumored relationship with Prince Harry ended.

In December 2017, Caspar took to Instagram to greet Ellie a happy birthday. Calling her by her real name, Elena, he captioned Ellie’s photo: “Happy birthday Elena.. you’re another year older and another year wiser.. thank you for inspiring me, challenging me, teaching me, and most importantly, loving me.. I love you a lot a lot and look forward to many more birthdays to come!”

When did Caspar and Ellie get engaged?

On August 7, 2018, Caspar announced their engagement via Instagram. He posted a photo of Ellie wearing a giant ring on her finger, with a long, sweet caption.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, Ellie said: “I think he proposed a bit sooner than he thought he was going to. I think he got a bit over-excited and proposed the week before he was planning.”

“We were having maybe a couple of drinks and we were doing a Jigsaw puzzle. He likes them. I think it was quite an easy one. Probably 400 (pieces). Anyway, I think he was getting bored of it and then he proposed. It was quite romantic for some reason,” she added.

The two formally announced their engagement in The Times that same month.

Caspar and Ellie tied the knot

The pair tied the knot on August 31, 2019, at York Minster. Caspar looked handsome in a bespoke Huntsman suit, complete with a beige vest, a black morning coat, a white shirt underneath, and a blue necktie.

Ellie wore a timeless white Chloe gown, which reportedly took over 640 hours to make. The bespoke gown, designed by Chloe’s creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi, has a high ruffled lace collar, long sleeves, and pearl bead embellishments. The silk tulle veil, which took 591 hours to make, was intricately embroidered with White Rose of York and the couple’s initials, C and E.

I spoke to @britishvogue about my wedding dress, and this is what I said 😊 “I was so thrilled and excited when I found out that the iconic and unparalleled Chloe wanted to design a bespoke wedding dress for me. I have loved them and their incredible team for years, so it only seemed right for Chloe to play big part of this special day. From day one they worked along side me to design, from head to toe, something timeless and classic, but with the all the Chloe opulence and spirit. Natasha was the perfect collaborator. I have never felt more special than the moment I first tried the dress on in Paris, and it was utterly awe inspiring to see the craftsmanship and attention to detail (I had C and E in the lace on veil, and the Yorkshire rose) they understood my longing for a very traditional dress 👗 Actually I could never thank you enough my dear people at @chloe , especially @nramsaylevi and @arnaudcauchois and to the lovely @juliahobbs_ . 💘
