For the first 26 years of her life, Pippa Middleton was a relative unknown to pretty much everyone around the world — however, that all changed in the months following her 27th birthday on September 6, 2010. Her sister Kate’s engagement to Prince William not long after this birthday started to put her name in the spotlight — but on the date of the Royal Wedding this past April, it’s safe to say that Pippa became a star.
Over the course of the past few months, Pippa has become one of the most-popular women in the world — and there are websites and Facebook groups dedicated to her, even without us knowing too much in the way of specific details about her life. She has suddenly appeared on countless “best dressed” lists thanks to her wedding attire, even though this has come with a few complaints that she may have upstaged the future Duchess of Cambridge on her big day.
On Tuesday, though, it really is all about Pippa as she turns 28 years old. What are her plans? For now, it seems as though she is going to have a relatively quiet celebration out of the public eye. She and the rest of the Middleton family have stayed under-the-radar since the Royal Wedding, even though much of the world has been looking in.
Are you expecting to see more of Pippa in the coming year?
