by hellomagazine.com

Happy birthday Pippa Middleton! As the pretty brunette turns 31, HELLO! Online takes a look at what the stars have in store for Pippa and you...

This is what Pippa, who is a Virgo, can be expecting today:

It is easy to make comparisons but not always so easy to make them stick. All similes, metaphors and efforts to measure one thing against another, must eventually unravel. Yet still, we cannot resist the urge to weigh, balance and assess. This is probably most counter-productive when it comes to our efforts to see ourselves as better or worse than other people. Or to see why one situation is like (or unlike) another. During this week of a Full Moon in your opposite sign take what you've got at face value and appreciate it.

Pippa Middleton
Pippa Middleton came to worldwide attention after she took on the role of maid of honour at the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge 
 

 

Philippa Charlotte 'Pippa' Middleton is the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge. She became overwhelmed with media attention after taking on the role of maid of honour when her her sister Kate wed Prince William in April 2011. 

She wore a beautiful figure hugging white dress, which like the bride's was created by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The gown was highly praised in the media and lead to Pippa becoming a style icon. Many replicas became available on the high street but quickly sold out.

Pippa attended several of Britain's elite schools including St Andrew's School in Pangbourne. She was known as an organised and attentive student, and the more outgoing of the Middleton sisters. She later graduated from Edinburgh University with a degree in English Literature.

She became the editor of The Party Times, the online magazine which promotes her parents' business Party Pieces. She has organised many events during her career at London-based events company Table Talk, for luxury brand and corporate companies as well as private parties. Her first book, entitled Celebrate, was published in autumn 2012.

In addition to forging a career as an author, Pippa took on the role of being ambassador for the British Heart Foundation. She set herself two personal fundraising challenges, after announcing during her promotion for the cause that she was "shocked to learn that nearly three times more women die from coronary heart disease than breast cancer". 

Pippa has been dating boyfriend Nico Jackson for 19 months and there are rumours that an engagement may be on the horizon. Nico is said to be quitting his job at Deutsche Bank to take on a new role at a multi-billion pound hedge fund in Geneva.
