It’s undoubtedly going to be another big year for Team Middleton, but with all the attention big sis Kate is getting right now we thought we’d take a look at what P-Middy’s been up to of late. She’s been one busy lady this year, and her packed out calendar of writing, workouts, study time and charity work has only fuelled speculation that a wedding might secretly be on the cards for Pippa and her long-term beau, city banker Nico Jackson. Fingers crossed!
The fitness fanatic, yoga-bunny and pilates-lover has recently revealed that she is taking part in the famous London to Brighton bike ride in June, raising funds for the British Heart Foundation. We’ve also noticed that Pippa is sporting the trendy lob (long bob) hairstyle which looks to be here to stay in 2015. Just another reason we may just go for a cheeky chop ourselves…
Pippa is an official ambassador for British Heart Foundation and donated items from her wardrobe for the charity’s ‘Roll out The Red’ online fundraising auction recently. One gorgeous garment she donated to the cause was a bright red L.K Bennett dress, with bids opening at $750.
Writing for Vanity Fair
Ms Middleton has held a columnist’s post at this elite glossy mag since summer 2013, and her guide to the world’s best ski resorts was published in February. A keen skier herself, Pippa has competed in cross country ski events and even took part in a 26-mile ski marathon with boyfriend Nico and her brother James in March 2013.
Here’s where Pippa loves to ski, by the way:
- Zermatt, Switzerland
- Courchevel, France
- Aspen and Snowmass, Colorado
- Deer Valley, Utah
- Whistler Blackcomb, British Columbia
- Lech Am Arlberg, Austria
- Cortina, Italy
- Megeve, France
- Verbier, Switzerland
- Saint-Moritz, Switzerland
- Jackson Hole, Wyoming
No doubt keen to further her rising career in events and entertainment, Pippa recently passed a super-Sloanie sommelier course in wine tasting with flying colors, and was also named top graduate by a group of the UK’s six top wine merchants. Pippa has previously written food columns for Waitrose Magazine (an upper-crust British supermarket chain) and published a party-planning guide book called ‘Celebrate!’
Vaycay with the Fam
February saw the Middletons take a jolly family holiday on the Caribbean island of Mustique, in honor of mother Carole’s 60th birthday. Pippa was joined by her parents and her brother James as well as Wills, Kate and Prince George who were no doubt relishing the opportunity for a relaxing ‘babymoon’ before the arrival of their second child in the spring. It is thought that the Middletons stayed at the exclusive Villa Rocina, a vast sea-view property on the exclusive sun-drenched island. Bliss!
2015 is set to be another big year for the Middletons with the arrival of Pippa’s newest niece or nephew this month. Naturally we’ll be covering all developments in the Modern Prep Gazette, so stay tuned and don’t forget to sign up to our weekly newsletter if you haven’t already!
