Pippa Middleton’s father-in-law ‘questioned by French judge over alleged rape of 16-year-old girl’

PIPPA Middleton’s father-in-law was reportedly questioned by a French judge about allegations he raped a 16-year-old girl – four years after the allegations first surfaced.

David Matthews was reportedly interviewed by Judge Jean Rea in Paris on June 16th and December 7th last year.

The 78-year-old entrepreneur is accused of raping the then-teenager twice between 1998 and 1999.

Supposedly it was first in Paris and then again on the Caribbean island of St. Barts where he owns the £5,000 a night Eden Rock Hotel.

The former racer whose son Jacob married the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge in 2017, was first questioned by police in April 2018 after being arrested while flying to Paris from the Caribbean.

He spent 48 hours in custody before being charged with double rape.

He vehemently denies the allegations.

The case has been handed over to a judge to decide whether to bring it before a full trial but has dragged on for years due to judicial delays and the Covid pandemic.

Last night a court spokesman in Paris told the Mail on Sunday that the case was “pending”, adding: “Therefore no trial date has been set.”

Mr Matthews declined to comment.
