Her name rings a bell because she is the sister of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. Engaged to her fiancée James Matthews, Pippa Middleton will get a different royal title when she gets married in May 2017. After a whirlwind romance, the two are set to walk the aisle.

Express reveals that Pippa Middleton stole the show at the wedding of her older sister Kate and Prince William in 2012. James Matthews proposed to Pippa during a Lake District trip in July of last year. Pippa Middleton's fiancée is the CEO of investment advisory firm Eden Rock Group. On the other hand, Middleton is an English author and columnist.

After briefly dating in 2012, the romance between Pippa Middleton and James Matthews' started to bloom in 2015 and since then they were inseparable. They had been doing things together ever since. For example, in 2014, Miss Middleton participated in a charity bike ride Race Across America with James in tow. Already welcome to the Middleton family, Matthews even accompanied her mother Carole to a carol service before Christmas.

Yahoo reveals that although she will not be a duchess like her older sister Kate, Pippa Middleton will receive a title of her own. James Matthews is heir to the Scottish title of Laird of Glen Afric, which his father currently holds. Pippa will be given the courtesy title of Mrs. Matthews of Glen Afric The Younger. When James assumes the title of Laird of Glen Affric, Pippa will become Lady Glenn Afric.

David Matthews, Pippa Middleton's future father-in-law, is the owner of a 10,000-acre Scottish highlands estate. It has a castle and a deer park. James Matthews will also become the owner of the property although he has the option not to formally use it. Eden Rock has regularly been voted as one of the top 100 hotels worldwide. The Matthews family purchased it from legendary island aviator and local adventurer Remy de Haenen, who opted to transfer from London to the Caribbean.
