Pippa Middleton is the younger sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, she appeared as the maid of honor at her sister’s wedding to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. Middleton has also received much media attention for her fashion sense and personal relationships.
Following graduation, in 2008 Pippa Middleton briefly worked at a public relations firm promoting luxury products, then she took on an events management job with Table Talk, a company based in London that organizes corporate events and parties. Also in 2008, Tatler magazine named Middleton “the Number 1 Society Singleton”, ahead of singer-songwriter James Blunt and Princess Eugenie of York, although in the same Tatler article she was described as someone who “goes to a lot of parties, but mainly as the caterer.” Since then, she has often been described as a socialite.
As part of a duo with her older sister, Pippa Middleton has received wide press coverage, focusing on her social life and her lifestyle. In April 2012, Time magazine listed Pippa as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Middleton currently works two days a week for her parents’ company Party Pieces, editing the web magazine Party Times.
Penguin Books paid Pippa Middleton a £400,000 advance for a book on party planning. The book, entitled Celebrate, was published in autumn 2012, and had lower than anticipated sales as many reviewers mocked it for the obviousness of its content. Middleton said that she was not using a ghost writer.
