Sophie Turner was seen kissing Peregrine Pearson in Paris two months after her split from Joe Jonas
Pearson was identified by multiple outlets, including The Sun, which first reported the news. Per the outlet, the pair were seen talking and sharing a kiss at the Gare du Nord railway station before heading to the Stade de France, where they took in the Rugby World Cup Final match between New Zealand and South Africa.
Pearson has recently gotten out of a long relationship himself, splitting from Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark in September.
So who is Sophie Turner’s new potential beau? Here’s everything to know about Peregrine Pearson and his relationship with the actress.
He is a British aristocrat
Pearson’s full name is Hon Peregrine John Dickinson Pearson (though he goes by Perry) and he is the heir to the Cowdray Estate in West Sussex, Britain. When Pearson inherits the home, he will become the 5th Viscount Cowdray.
While in the past estates were used as large family homes and displays of wealth, Pearson has spoken about his family’s goal of making their property into multiple businesses. To that end, the Cowdray Estate is most known for its Polo Club, though it also houses a farm shop, café, golf club, cottages and more.
“Traditionally, estates were run like holiday homes," Pearson told The Gentleman’s Journal. “Someone got very successful, bought a home, and then used it as a way of doing whatever they wanted — polo, shooting, fishing — without really having to pay."
Pearson, who helped come up with business innovations for the home and runs its 200 full-time employees, plans to leave it to his children one day, he told the outlet.
“But the dream is to pass it on to my son or daughter in better nick than it’s in now. That’s the mentality when it comes to estates,” he said. “You’re so grateful that you’ve been given this opportunity, you want others to have the same opportunity that you had.”
He is the director of a property development company
After earning his degree in business, management and marketing from the University of West London, Pearson began working as a director at Cowdray Estate in 2016, per his LinkedIn. However, in 2019, he took on an additional role as the director of Weetman Developments.
The property development company focuses on rentals that “provide a suitable alternative to those properties found in more expensive central locations.”
He previously dated a Greek royal
Pearson was previously in a high-profile relationship with Greek and Danish royal Princess Maria-Olympia, King Charles’ goddaughter. The princess told The Telegraph that the pair began dating in 2020, and Olympia often posted pictures of the two together on her Instagram.
However, fans were quick to notice when Pearson wasn’t at Olympia’s birthday party in July, and just two months later, the Daily Mail reported that they had officially split. Olympia also wiped her Instagram of all photos with her ex.
He does not play polo, despite his family’s passion
Polo is the Cowdray Estate’s most popular attraction as several hundred thousand visitors, including the occasional royal family member, flock to the grounds every summer to attend matches.
“Polo is what people see and it’s the face of the business,” Pearson told The Gentleman’s Journal.
However, Pearson has admitted he isn’t much of an expert himself — but he’s learning.
"I'm getting lessons, I grew up riding and over the next few years it's something I can see myself doing a lot more," he told the Telegraph in 2018.
He and Turner were first seen together in October 2023
Turner has moved on since she and Jonas announced their split in September. Before her appearance at the Rugby World Cup Final in Paris, Turner was spotted giving Pearson a quick kiss in photos obtained by The Sun.
Per the outlet, the two were spotted chatting and “laughing a lot” outside the Gare du Nord train station.
They were later seen again as Pearson joined her in the hallways of the Stade de France prior to the game, where Turner unveiled the Webb Ellis Cup with retired rugby player Dan Carter.
Pearson “followed a step behind” Turner, a source told PEOPLE.
He keeps a low profile
Pearson has kept his personal life private from the public eye, rarely giving interviews and sharing his life with the world. While his Instagram is private, Turner is one of his just over 1,000 followers.
