Pippa Middleton could be joining her older sister Kate in royal life with a title of her own, inherited from her father-in-law.

Her husband, James Matthews, is the eldest son of David Matthews, and is in line to inherit his father’s title as Laird of Glen Affric, along with a 10,000-acre Scottish estate near Loch Ness.

If he does receive the hereditary title upon his father’s death, that would see Pippa and James become Lord and Lady Glen Affric.

The Commonwealth-recognised title would make the couple members of the nobility, one step down from royalty.

Pippa and James, a former professional racing driver and hedge fund manager, married in 2017 and share three children: Arthur, three, Grace, one, and three-week-old Rose.

The news of their future title comes as the family reportedly plan to relocate to a 31-hectare lot in Buckleberry, less than an hour’s drive from the Middleton’s new home in Windsor.

Their new home will reportedly mimic Jeremy Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm Shop, complete with glamping, cabins and a restaurant.

Kate and Pippa’s parents, Michael, 73, and Carole, 67, also live in Buckleberry, which has been a long-time base for the family and where they founded a party accessory company in 1987.
