Pippa Middleton Photos and Bio: Pippa Middleton is an English socialite and party planner. She became famous after her older sister Catherine ‘Kate’ married Prince William and acquired the title of Duchess of Cambridge. Pippa was also the maid of honour at the Royal Wedding witnessed by millions around the world.
Pippa Middleton was born on September 6, 1983 to Michael Middleton, a flight dispatcher, and his wife Carole. She also has a younger brother, James Middleton. Being born to a rather ordinary family, nobody thought the Middleton’s daughter Catherine would ever marry the prince. Pippa had an ordinary childhood like the rest of her siblings. She went to St Andrew’s School, Pangbourne, then to a girls boarding school named Downe House. She graduated from Marlborough College and later studied English Literature at University of Edinburgh.
The Middletons are reported to be millionaires after their mother started a small business ‘Party Pieces’ in mid 1980s. She dispatched party supplies via mail and in 1995 it became so successful that the business brought with it a better lifestyle for the family.
Pippa worked in the Public Relations sector in 2008 and later went on to help her parents with their party planning business, editing their online magazine Party Times. Pippa also worked for Table Talk, a London based Event Management company.
Pippa was in the limelight ever since her sister Kate was engaged to marry the Duke of Cambridge, William. However, she caused quite a stir on the day of the Royal Wedding with her exquisite Alexander McQueen gown – it had a plunging neckline and the buttons at the back just stopped at the right point. She was the new talk of the town.
