Pippa Middleton, the sister of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is linked to her own aristocratic member of England’s upper class. George Percy, the Duke of Northumberland, is said to be “fond” of Pippa. They’ve been on two skiing trips this year and have been seen out eating expensive dinners together. In the midst of all this, Pippa and Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton, is believed to be angling for marrying another daughter off into a titled society. Carole has a reputation for being “pushy” in getting what she wants. When she heard Prince William was going to attend St. Andrews University in Scotland, she urged Kate to enroll. As the world is well aware, the rest is history for them. Kate will be the future Queen of England. No Duke in England can compete with being the future King, but if there’s one worth noting, It’s George Percy. He’s heir to Alnwick Castle, the castle for Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movies and 100,000 acres in Northern England. In addition to that he has a trust fund which provides him close to a million dollars a year.
Friends close to Pippa and the Duke say chances are they won’t be more than friends because the “chemistry” just isn’t there. Even money may not help Percy if Pippa Middleton doesn’t want anything romantically with him. Is her mother hopeful there might be something more down the road? She must enjoy the possibility that her younger daughter could one day marry a Duke herself. She sat Pippa and Percy together at a New Year’s Eve party event and the press suggested she was pushing for them to be a couple then.
Until more is known about Pippa Middleton and the Duke of Northumberland, all the media has is speculation.
