Pippa Middleton is set to become a Lady while Kate will be a Princess
Kate Middleton took on her Duchess of Cambridge title in 2011 when she married Prince William, as he had been created the Duke of Cambridge by the Queen to mark his nuptials. And while Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton doesn’t have a royal title, she is likely to inherit a Scottish title through marriage.
Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews recently welcomed their third child, a daughter they are thought to have named Rose.
Although Pippa is the sister of a future Queen, she lives her life away from the royal spotlight without a Duchess title like Kate.
But through her marriage to hedge fund financier James Matthews in 2017, she is eligible for a Scottish title.
James’ father reportedly acquired the title of Laird of Glen Affric when he bought a castle and 10,000-acre estate in Scotland.

As James Matthews will likely inherit this estate one day, it stands to reason he will be the next Laird of Glen Affric.
As such, James’ wife Pippa will likely become the Lady of Glen Affric.
For the time being, however, James is eligible to use the style of Mr Matthews of Glen Affric, while Pippa can go by Mrs Matthews of Glen Affric.
However, as they are courtesy titles, James and Pippa simply go by Mr and Mrs Matthews most of the time.
Kate recently acknowledged her future title change while on a visit to Wales during the Platinum Jubilee weekend.
A royal fan told the Duchess: “You’re going to make a brilliant Princess of Wales.”
Kate replied: “That’s very kind. I’m in good hands,” gesturing to Prince William.
When William is King, Kate will be crowned alongside him as Queen Consort.
