Pippa Middleton Bio

The name Kate Middleton is a familiar one for most of us! After all, she is a princess-to-be and getting set to marry Prince William in London this April 29! Her maid of honour is younger sister Pippa Middleton, her best friend and confidant, who’s only a year younger than Kate. Learn more about Pippa on Kidzworld!

Growing Up Pippa

Born in 1983 as Philippa Charlotte Middleton in Reading, Berkshire, she was quickly nicknamed “Pip” by her family and “Pippa” by friends. Only one year younger than older sister Kate, Pippa is the second oldest kid in the family - they also have a little brother named James. Their parents, Mike and Carol Middleton both worked for British Airways - their mother as a flight attendant and father as a flight dispatcher.

Sibling Rivalry?

When Pippa was a toddler, her mother set up a business called Party Pieces which sold party decorations and supplies. It became a big success and it made the Middleton family millionaires. Both Pippa and Kate attended Marlborough College - one of the best public schools in the UK!

Her Royal Friends

When it was time to go to university, Pippa decided to go to Edinburgh University rather than go to St. Andrews University where her sister met Prince William. At school, Pippa made a lot of royal friends including George Percy, the son and heir of the Duke of Northumberland and Lord Edward Innesker. On holidays, Pippa liked going to stay at country cottages in the English countryside with her royal friends.

The Party Business

After leaving university, she lived with her sister Kate in Chelsea, a very posh area of London. She now works as a party and event organiser in London and also works on her parents’ company ”Party Pieces”. She writes an online magazine called The Party Times for her parents’ party website and gives advice about how to throw the best kids’ parties like a “Groovy Gruffalo” party or a “Tangled Princess Party” where everyone could decorate their own crowns and have a tiara hunt game. Pippa has said that she likes to work in the party field because “it’s a happy environment”. We’d love to have Pippa plan our next birthday party!

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”
