Pippa Middleton will one day receive an official noble title of her own, but it has nothing to do with her sister's place in the British royal family - it will actually come from marrying into James Matthews' family. The younger Middleton sister is set to inherit the title of Lady Glen Affric.

When Middleton's father-in-law, David Matthews, bought a castle and a 10,000-acre plot of land in Scotland back in 2008, he acquired the title Laird of Glen Affric. As his eldest son, James will inherit this title and his wife will take the role of Lady Glen Affric, The Telegraph has reported. Although, of course, they could choose not to adopt the titles.

The couple – who celebrated their first-year anniversary on the royal wedding weekend – have recently revealed that they are expecting their first child together. Confirming the news in a column for Waitrose Weekend, Middleton explained that she had not suffered from morning sickness.

"I was lucky to pass the 12 week scan without suffering from morning sickness," she said. "That meant I was able to carry on as normal. This being my first pregnancy, I had so many questions I felt were still unanswered. I’ve noticed my body change and weight increase, but through effective exercise and sports I feel that it’s being strengthened to support a healthy pregnancy, birth and recovery."

Also expecting his first child is James' younger brother Spencer Matthews, who tied the knot to fellow reality TV star Vogue Williams at the family Glen Affric Estate just last weekend.
