The Early Years
Middleton was raised in Berkshire and was originally educated at private boarding schools. Like her sister, she was educated at St. Andrew’s School, later attending Marlborough College on scholarship. She later graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a degree in English literature. She also worked for her parents’ company Party Pieces, particularly editing its web magazine.
After graduation, Middleton found work in public relations, helping to promote luxury products. She then went on to work for Table Talk in the field of events management. Even by 2008, she was already considered a socialite in her home country, often appearing in publications with various celebrities. In 2010, she served as her sister’s maid of honor during her wedding to Prince William; her name and appearance at the wedding became well-publicized in media throughout the world.
Middleton was paid a £400,000 advance for a book on party planning by Penguin Books, which was published in 2012 as Celebrate; the following year, however, she parted ways with her literary agent. Furthering her career as a writer, she has been a columnist for multiple publications, like The Spectator, Waitrose Kitchen, Vanity Fair and The Sunday Telegraph. In 2013, she became the sole director and shareholder of PXM Enterprises Limited. In 2016, Middleton became engaged to James Matthews, a professional racing driver turned hedge fund manager, marrying the following year. As Matthews is the son and heir of David Matthews, the Laird of Glen Affric, Middleton could obtain the courtesy title of Lady Glen Affric if her husband inherits his father’s lairdship.
