Pippa Middleton"s 30th birthday: What next for the girl about town?
As Pippa Middleton celebrates her 30th on 6 September, it's interesting to recall a comment by her former housemaster at St Andrews Prep School in Berkshire.
Housemaster Ken Allford described Pippa as "tough, not like (her sister) Catherine".
"She never seemed anything other than bright and bubbly. If she fell down, she picked herself up and just got on with it," he added. "She knew exactly who she was and was a delight. There were never arguments with the other girls, never a piece of lost (sports) kit or grumbling."

Pippa even jokes that the shoulder-barging in her school netball matches is useful preparation for dealing with the paparazzi.
