Petra and Sam, 38, and her four children recently arrived in London from their home in California for the ceremony, which will take place in a secret location.

Petra’s father, former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, told FEMAIL: ‘They are getting married this weekend, somewhere in London. I do not know the exact location because Petra has not told me yet.

‘It’s wonderful news. Let’s hope she’s happier than she was in her last marriage. ‘

Petra, valued at an estimated £ 350 million, divorced businessman James Stunt in 2017 after six years of marriage and has since had his youngest child, 18-month-old Millie, with Sam, who heads a recruitment firm.

“Of course I want to leave, but I do not want to give a speech because I only make comments.”

Sir. Ecclestone, 91, added: ‘My comment on Petra’s upcoming marriage is that I think she has chosen a good guy.

‘I do not know Sam very well because they live in the United States and I do not see them very often.

‘I’ve met him a few times and like him. Hopefully I get to know him a little better.

Good news!  Petra's father, former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, said it was 'wonderful' news for the couple - but said he would not give a speech at the event.

Former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone will be charged with fraud in false pretenses “after failing to declare assets worth £ 400 million abroad”

Former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has been charged with £ 400million in an alleged fraud after an HMRC investigation.

CPS has endorsed the action over allegations of fraud by false pretenses.

It follows what the HMRC called a ‘complex and worldwide criminal investigation’.

Andrew Penhale, chief prosecutor for the Crown, said: ‘CPS has reviewed a file of evidence from the HMRC and has approved a charge against Bernard Ecclestone for fraud by misrepresentation in connection with his failure to declare to HMRC the existence of assets held abroad, is thought to be worth over £ 400m.

‘The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against this defendant are now active and that they are entitled to a fair trial.

“It is extremely important that there is no reporting, commenting or sharing of information online that could in any way affect these matters.”

‘They have recently returned to England for the ceremony and I look forward to going to their wedding and meeting them.’

Bernie admitted that he was not involved in any of the arrangements for the wedding, which is being hosted by the event company Banana Splits, and had ‘no idea’ how big or lavish it would be.

He said: ‘I do not know any of the details. I just know I’ll be there this weekend.

‘I’m waiting for Petra to call me to give me all the information.’

The couple lives in a lavish home in Los Angeles, and Sam regularly posts pictures of their family life on social media.

Following her divorce from James, it was reported that he had signed a £ 16 million marriage contract, in which Petra also gained sole custody of the couple’s three children: twins Andrew Kulbir and James Robert Frederick, 6, and Lavinia Stunt, 9.

Petra and Sam, a former used car salesman from Essex, met in late 2017 through her brother-in-law Jay Rutland, who is married to his sister Tamara.

When the couple built a new life in the United States, it was reported last year that Petra had filed legal documents to change her children’s last name from Stunt to her own.

The move was supported by her father, who has previously publicly criticized her ex-husband.

Sir. Ecclestone added: “I’m sure Sam is much better than Petra’s ex-husband.”

It has been reported that the children call Sam ‘father’, and he has previously spoken honestly about his bad relationship with Petra’s ex-husband and baby father James, who has often fought back.

The couple lives in a £ 18.5 million ($ 22 million) home in Los Angeles, which Petra bought in 2019 after selling her more luxurious American home for £ 101 million ($ 119.7).
