Is Peregrine Pearson dating Sophie Turner?

British actress Sophie Turner and British aristocrat Peregrine Pearson have been romantically linked to one another for months since being caught embracing out and about in Paris in October 2023.

Now the pair seem to have confirmed dating rumours as Sophie shared photos of them enjoying a skiing holiday together on her Instagram which she tagged his account in - although his page is still private!

When the pictures of them in Paris first emerged a source told the tabloids: "They arrived together at the chauffeur pick-up location outside of the station [in Paris]. It looked like they might have both come on the Eurostar from London."

Sophie is currently said to be filming a new show in England so it would make sense if she and Peregine sparked a new romance on British soil.

“They stood there for a few minutes and were chatting and laughing a lot," the source continued before adding: “He then took his hat off and leaned in to give her a big kiss. After the kiss they parted ways.”

How is Peregrine Pearson an aristocrat?

Peregine is a British aristocrat because he was born into the Pearson family which is an extraordinarily wealthy family said to be worth a whopping £224 million ($279 million).

His father Michael Pearson, 79, is the fourth Viscount Cowdray after inheriting the estate of Cowdray in West Sussex when his father, John Pearson, died in 1995. According to Google, a viscount is a British nobleman ranking above a baron and below an earl - pretty fancy!

As the eldest son in the family, Peregine is heir to his father's title and would become the fifth Viscount Cowdray after his father's passing.
