Pippa! Pippa! Pippa! Is Kate Middleton's sister the new Marcia Brady? Wearing a stunning body-hugging dress by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, the maid of honor was immediately dubbed Her Royal Hotness on Friday. Men across the land berated Prince William for picking the wrong sister, while secretly thanking him at the same time.

Here's what you need to know about Pippa Middleton, everyone's new favorite bachelorette:

1. Philippa Charlotte Middleton, 27, is Carole and Michael Middleton's second daughter. Her siblings include older sister Kate and younger brother James. Known as "Pip" to her family and "Pippa" to the world, she reportedly has asked to be called Philippa going forward.

2. She's currently dating 30-year-old London broker and former England cricketer Alex Loudon, who is a friend of Prince William. The one-year relationship appears to be pretty serious. Loudon attended the ceremony, and was seated with the Middleton family. And according to rumors, an engagement may be on the horizon once the royal wedding mania fades. But now that Pippa has gotten a taste of the global media spotlight will she be ready to settle down?

3. Sorry, commoner dudes. Her former beau roster includes only affluent gents, such as Jonathan "JJ" Jardine Paterson, an heir to the Hong Kong Jardine Matheson fortune, Scottish aristocrat Billy More Nesbitt and diamond heir Simon Youngman.

4. After studying English literature at the University of Edinburgh, Pippa began working for an events planner, combining her love of partying and regal connections. She also runs The Party Times, an online magazine for her parents' business.

5. Pippa was named the Number One Society Singleton by Tatler magazine in 2008. She even surpassed Princess Eugenie of York, Prince William's cousin, on the list.

6. She's BFFs with Chelsy Davy, Prince Harry's on-again, off-again girlfriend. The nightclub-loving girls are often spotted together out and about in London.

7. Her tush has Facebook fans (thanks to all her bend-and-reach bridal duties). The Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society is currently boasting almost 150,000 "likes."

8. Before the royal wedding, she had gained the media nickname "Perfect Pippa" for her toned legs, bronzed skin, shiny hair and ease in front of the paparazzi lens.

9. She helped plan the post-reception dance party at Buckingham Palace. She reportedly requested that disco balls be suspended from the ceiling, which the Palace pooh-poohed.

10. Now that Kate is married, Pippa will be entitled to use the duchess' original coat of arms with a blue ribbon, which represents an unmarried Middleton female.

    I think Kate is the prettiest of the two girls. She seems so together.

  • cbo

    seen better seen worse...I would do her....if she wore that dress...

  • Kim

    Will all the attention go to her head and make her unlikeable? Possibly.

  • Moe

    Ugh. I thought we were done with this. Now we have to follow every move the sister makes too?

  • Julie


  • dcnash

    Like Diana. She wasn't beautiful. She was only OK. But people always said she was the most beautiful woman in the world. Shewas only average but people were in love with what she was.

  • Donna

    Don't get me wrong, Kate is very pretty and is probably very nice. But I would not call someone a conserative or decent in my book, that has lived with someone for the last 8 years. No wonder they are not taking a honeymoon right away...they have had their honeymoon!!! So, there is no excitment !

  • doug

    ginger vs maryann? MARYANN!
    jaclyn smith vs farrah fawcett? JACLYN!

  • Ernie D.

    I wish I could go to Britain to find some hot ass ladies.

  • dcnash

    English people are very friendly. Sometimes airlines have cheap fares especially on 3 day weekends. Last year there was one for $300 round trip to Paris. If you can find a cheap London hotel and find a weekend airfare you can go to London. Visit a pub or club. Maybe a fair. You will meet a nice English girl. When you get back to work monday and people ask you what you didi over the weekend you can so "Nothing special just hung out" or you can brag. Which ever is the most fun for you.

  • johnjfoote

    You don't need to go to England they are every ware, you just need to know the secret. Talk to them like they are (not) hot ass women.

  • Juliac

    This is world headline news the day after the planet is rid of the scourge of bin Laden?

  • Cargib

    I think that in today's world we all end up being multi-taskers.........

  • baby doll dixon

    where is osama bin ladens body? did he even exist or was he CIA film special effects?

  • Allison

    I agree. THIS is the news when the worlds most wanted is dead!! I'm proud to be an American. I liked the royal wedding but there is bigger news. BIN LADEN IS DEAD!! This is worthy of much celebration.

  • Annie

    She is a pretty girl and I am sure the dress fit her nicely but she is certainly not gorgeous.

  • Judy

    Annie, have you had your eyes checked lately????

  • Polly

    Kate is beautiful, Pippa pretty, in my opinion.; both seem to be level-headed young women, the Middletons deserve A+ for parenting.

  • Jana

    I think "Pippa" is pretty, not beautiful. I've spent the last few days thinking she was a MUCH older sister, though??? Didn't know she was younger, doesn't look it.

  • Russ

    The reasoning is... This time is THE BRIDE AND GROOMS time. It's THEIR LITE......................
