Biography

Pippa Middleton (born Philippa Middleton; 6.10.1983) Pippa Middleton is an English socialite and party planner best known as the sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Childhood: Pippa Middleton grew up in Bradfield Southend before moving to Bucklebury, Berkshire when she was 11. Her parents are former flight dispatcher Michael Middleton and former flight attendant Carole Middleton who is currently the owner of party planners Party Pieces.

As a child, Pippa was involved with the St Andrew's Brownie pack. She later attended the preparatory school St Andrew's School in Pangbourne and the boarding school Downe House School in Cold Ash. She got a sports scholarship at Marlborough College and landed an English literature degree at the University of Edinburgh.

Career: Pippa Middleton's first job was at a firm that promoted luxury products to clients. She then went on to work for corporate events planners Table Talk before taking up a part-time role at Party Pieces as their magazine editor.

She first gained worldwide attention as the maid of honour at the wedding of her sister, Kate Middleton, and Prince William - now the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge. Wearing an extremely flattering Alexander McQueen dress, she subsequently became a top fashion icon with paparazzi snapping her at every opportune moment to unveil both her designer and high street fashion must-haves. She published her first book, a party planning publication named 'Celebrate', in 2012 but it was heavily criticised for its over-explanatory and sometimes patronising content.

She has received wide press attention from the likes of Tatler and Time since her departure from university and has also contributed to several newspaper and magazine columns herself such as The Spectator, Waitrose Kitchen, Vanity Fair and The Sunday Telegraph.

Personal life: Pippa Middleton is currently in a relationship with stockbroker Nico Jackson. In 2013, it was revealed that they were engaged but those rumours were later denied.

The High Court in London has barred publication of photographs allegedly stolen from Pippa Middleton’s iCloud account, after her lawyers told of the considerable distress that the hacking of approximately 3,000 images has caused her.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister undertook civil court action in the Queen’s bench division of the High Court against a “person or persons unknown” after her iCloud account was said to have been broken into. It comes after The Sun published allegations that they had been offered the stolen images, which reportedly included pictures of Middleton’s nephew and niece, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Pippa Middleton Admits She's Not Made All The Recipes In Her New Cookbook


Pippa Middleton

Pippa Middleton, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, was widely mocked for her first book four years ago with its painfully obvious tips for party planning. Now, she’s risked ridicule once more by admitting she’s not even made some of the recipes in her new cookbook, ‘Heartfelt’.

In a new interview with the Daily Mail this week, the 33 year old sometime-columnist spoke about the new cookbook, published to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and containing more than 100 recipes approved by the organisation’s dietitians as being low in salt and sugar. However, she admitted that there are some she hasn’t made yet…

“I would like to say I have made every single one, but I have definitely done a good 80 per cent of them,” she revealed. “I made a lot of the dishes at home.”
