After four years of marriage, pop star Ellie Goulding and her husband Caspar Jopling have started spending some time apart, citing relationship issues. The couple started dating in 2017, and married two years later following a year-long engagement. In 2021, they welcomed their son Arthur.
Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling are having problems in their marriage as a consequence of their hectic schedules and time apart. However, they remain close and committed to sharing parental duties with their son, Arthur, despite everything.
The pair has recently been seen spending time together with friends as well as taking family holidays. Some friends now think that there may be a chance for their marriage to be reconciled. They have, however, decided that for the moment, it would be best for them to spend some time apart from one another.
A friend of the couple has revealed that there have been several ups and downs in their marriage, but they are willing to stay together just for the sake of their son. Apparently there have been no talks of a divorce, they are just trying to be friends and work out the next steps and enjoy being good parents to Arthur.
Ellie has a thriving career, and in April, her most recent album, ‘Higher Than Heaven’ ascended to the top of the UK charts. She joins Adele in the exclusive club of female singers who have achieved four number one albums thanks to this accomplishment.
Ellie also achieved a rare chart double that same week. Her status in the music industry was further cemented when her joint single with Calvin Harris, ‘Miracle’ shot to the top of the singles charts.
Caspar, an Eton College graduate, met Ellie through common friends Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. They later became romantically involved. Notably, Ellie attracted attention when she gave a spectacular performance of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ during the royal wedding reception of Prince William and Kate in 2011.
Caspar had been living in New York after finishing his studies at Harvard University. He comes from a well-known family that includes prominent Conservative politicians and renowned art dealer, Jay Jopling. He did, however, travel to the UK to wed Ellie, and their lavish reception was held at Castle Howard in Yorkshire. Close acquaintances from the royal circle as well as well-known people like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were present.
