Meet Sophie Turner's VERY eligible new squeeze: Aristocrat Peregrine Pearson ... trends now
Peregrine Pearson is the eldest son and heir of Michael Pearson, the 4th Viscount Cowdray - a former film producer who owns a significant chunk of the Pearson media empire.
The 29-year-old has a £5million pad in Chelsea while his father owns a sprawling mansion in West Sussex with 22 bedrooms and 16,500 acres of grounds boasting 10 polo pitches.
Peregrine had been dating Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark, a 27-year-old model, but it emerged in September that they had gone their separate ways after 'growing apart'.
He was seen kissing with Sophie Turner on a street in Paris before they attended the rugby World Cup together, reports The Sun. It comes just a month after the 27-year-old's ex Joe Jonas filed for divorce.

Outing: In recent days, the pair were also seen attending the Stade de France together, with Sophie smiling as she walked a few paces ahead of Peregrine (pictured)
Exes: Peregrine was previously in a relationship with King Charles's goddaughter, Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark (pictured in November), but they split earlier this year
An onlooker who spotted Sophie and Peregrine in Paris said: 'They arrived together at the chauffeur pick-up location outside of the station.
'It looked like they might have both come on the Eurostar from London.'
While Sophie is said to be worth a whopping £10million, this pales in comparison to Peregrine's family fortune.
His ancestral estate is home to Cowdray Park Polo Club - which boasts 10 pitches and hosts more than 450 matches each year.
The main Cowdray House, bought in 1908 by Peregrine's great-great-grandfather Weetman Dickinson Pearson, has 120 acres of formal gardens and woodland.
The house was a replacement for a Tudor manor built by the Montague family, which burnt down in 1793.
In 2009, Lord and Lady Cowdray reportedly decided to put the estate on the market for £25million, but decided they couldn't part with the property and instead started hosting luxury events there, with Cowdray Hall now serving as a wellness centre.
Cowdry Hall offers spiritual workshops, retreats and weekly classes, and features a chapel used for yoga, Pilates and meditation.
Family: Property developer Peregrine is the eldest son and heir of Michael Pearson, the 4th Viscount Cowdray and his wife Marina (both pictured in July 2018), who split up in August
Upbringing: Reflecting on his childhood, Peregrine said his artist mother Marina (both pictured with his brother Montague in 2014) never forced them to play polo and allowed them to be 'creative'
Smooch: Peregrine was spotted kissing Sophie Turner on Saturday and, just hours later, they were also spotted arriving at Stade de France together (pictured)
Peregrine previously admitted that despite being the heir to the sprawling estate, which also features a farm shop and café, he does not play polo himself.
He told the Telegraph in 2018: '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.'
The publication also reported that Peregrine was taking a more active role in running the estate and was shadowing chief executive Jonathan Russell to learn about the intricacies of the polo club.
'It's great to be able to observe it from a distance and see what my future role is going to be,' Peregrine said.
