Philippa Charlotte Middleton–better known as Pippa– was born September 6, 1983. She is the younger sister of Kate Middleton and daughter of party supply company owners Michael and Carole.
Like Kate, Pippa attended the University of Edinburgh.

After graduating in 2008, Middleton took a job with Table Talk, a London-based party planning company. In 2013, she became the shareholder and director of PXM Enterprises Limited.
In July 2016, Middleton accepted a proposal from James Matthews, the eldest son and heir of David Matthews. She’s an active philanthropist, serving as an ambassador to Too Many Women, which raises money for breast cancer research.
