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.
Pippa Middleton has been criticised by animal rights groups, WDC and PETA, for admitting to tasting whale meat whilst on holiday in Norway.

The discussion covered a range of topics from her big sister, Kate, becoming a British royal after marrying Prince William, and her infamous bridesmaid dress, which garnered nearly as much attention as the whole ceremony.
The English socialite also spoke candidly of how her own life has changed since the royal wedding, and the difficulties of being in the public eye.

Pippa Middleton's bottom was an international success after her sister's royal wedding, but how does her bottom fare up against these other big-bootied celebs?
The Royal Wedding was totally usurped by all of the attention that was incongruously bestowed on Pippa Middleton’s now very famous bottom. Ain’t nobody denying that the girl has a cute little behind, but really, in the grand scheme of celebrity booties it’s not really one to write home about. While the 90’s were all about supersize Pam Anderson style breasts, the past decade has been dedicated to the derriere. It’s now a “thing” to get butt implants and injections, because it’s not enough to be rail thin, you also need a huge ass. A little contradictory, but those celebs manage it pretty well!
J-Lo's butt has been famous for nearly two decades now
J-Lo’s badonkadonk was the first to bounce onto the scene back in the 90’s. A huge fuss was kicked up about whether she’d had butt implants or not, these days we’re more inclined to put it down to her Latino roots and admire Jennifer Lopez's booty with revered silence.
