*This* Will Be Pippa Middleton's Official Royal Title (and It's Not Because of Kate)

The Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is having a royal whirlwind of a week. First, she was spotted looking summery chic at the French Open with hubby James Matthews, then she officially confirmed that she’s pregnant with her first child.

But will Pippa ever be in the inner royal circle like her sister or the newly minted Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle? Turns out, the youngest Middleton will inherit a royal title, but it’s not going to be bestowed by the queen. Instead, it comes from Pippa’s husband, race-car driver James Matthews, whose father inherited the title of Laird of Glen Affric due to the 10,000-acre estate he purchased in the Scottish Highlands back in 2007.

When Pippa’s father-in-law passes away, her husband, Matthews, as the eldest son, will inherit the title (should he choose to). This would mean Pippa would become Lady of Glen Affric (oooh, fancy). 

Sure, it’s no duchess. But, hey, it beats our own personal title—Lady of Cabernet Sauvignon—by a mile.
