LONDON — The publicist for “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Keira Knightley says the actress is engaged to be married.

Publicist Sara Keene Friday confirmed the engagement. She says she does not have further details about the wedding plans.

The Oscar-nominated 27-year-old actress who first won acclaim for her role in “Bend It Like Beckham” is to marry musician James Righton.

He is a keyboardist with the Klaxons band.

The couple started dating early last year.
