Pippa Middleton was robbed!

British TV presenter Carol Vorderman has been honored for her curvaceous and well-honed figure as the winner of the annual Rear of the Year award.

The former Countdown host attracted a ''deluge'' of votes after appearing in a succession of newspaper pictures wearing hip-hugging couture dresses.

Pippa Middleton was considered a strong contender to win the prestigious award after attracting worldwide attention at the April 29 royal wedding.

But Tony Edwards, who organizes the annual award, said Pippa was ''totally unknown'' before the wedding and had mere weeks to gather votes.

''There have been quite a lot of votes for her over the period after the royal wedding, but it was less than six weeks from then to now," he said.

"A lot of other stars had a lot of time to really ratchet up the votes, and there is no doubt that Carol Vorderman won many, many more votes."

Pippa Middleton is a very attractive female. Still, you wouldn't expect one of many such females in Britain to have the wide-ranging impact she does.

After making waves at the royal wedding in a tight-fitting, white bridesmaid’s dress, the world’s favorite royal-in-law is standing solo in the spotlight.

Observers say "Pippamania" has already sparked a boost to tourism to the UK, a $130 billion a year industry that’s been hit hard in recent years.

A weak dollar and subsequent drop off in American visitors, plus the global financial crisis have taken their toll. Can Pippa Middleton save the day?

New York-based travel professional and Anglophile Barbara Gillam says, in spite of these challenges, “Pippa’s aura may very well boost tourism."

If it hasn't already. From Pilates, her favorite hangouts and the designers’ outfits she’s seen in, anything associated with her garners huge buzz.

A rep for VisitEngland (dot) org says, “Royal weddings do raise the profile of English history and heritage," and "News around Pippa is very positive.”

Like foreign visitors to the U.S. in New York or L.A., “American travelers are generally interested in celebrity hot spots in the hopes of star spotting.”

Prince William’s new sister-in-law Pippa Middleton is said to be nearing an engagement herself. Sources say Pippa is "close" to sealing the deal with her longtime beau, former cricket star Alexander Guy Rushworth Loudon.

While they’ve only been dating a year, Alex and Pippa are very serious. They “virtually live together” in London and often visit his family’s home in Kent.

Now a stockbroker, Alex Loudon became pals with William while they were students at Eton, an exclusive British secondary school near Windsor Castle.

Adjusting to life in the spotlight has been challenging for Pippa.

While she was recently seen with ex George Percy, all indications are that things are swell between Pippa and Alex, regardless of their marriage timetable.

Whether Loudon gets down on one knee soon, we'll have to wait and see. But one thing's for sure - LOTS of people will be watching her every move.

Despite running in elite social circles, the level of interest in the royal maid of honor has really thrown her for a loop, according to those in the know.

Should Alex Loudon be worried?

Probably not, but Pippa Middleton was seen in Spain with her ex George Percy this weekend. The younger sister of Kate Middleton, along with a female friend, were relaxing with Percy on Sunday in a park in Madrid, as well as on a boat.

Fortunately, no racy photos came out of this boat trip. Just a nice time between the exes, who remain close friends. Here's a shot of them at lunch:

Pippa Middleton and George Percy

Back on Friday, Pippa Middleton was seen sharing laughs with Percy when they arrived at Madrid airport. Later that day, the 27-year-old carried a bottle of champagne in her red bag and spent the evening with her friends at Fortuna nightclub.

Middleton and Percy dated when they were students at the Edinburgh University. They were also flatmates, and have been friends for about 10 years.

George Percy, BTW, happens to be the eldest son of the Duke of Northumberland. We have no idea what that means, but it's clearly really important!

The Middleton girls certainly have a thing for royalty.

With Prince William and Kate Middleton on a secret honeymoon locale chosen in large part to avoid paparazzi, these media members are under siege in the UK.

A legal battle over publication of racy Pippa Middleton pictures is brewing, with roots dating back to the 1997 death of Prince William's mother, Princess Diana.

The racy photo controversy involves shots of Pippa, Kate's sister and made of honor, sunbathing topless, partying and posing in a series of private moments.

The release of the photos prompted the Middleton family to file a formal petition to Britain's independent Press Complaints Commission earlier this week.

That complaint is seen as the first salvo in what is expected to be a conflict between the monarchy and the press as both sides try to establish boundaries.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are determined to live a normal life, and while generally reserved in public, William is fiercely protective of Kate's family.

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and her suddenly-famous younger sister Pippa may be best friends, but that doesn't mean they're unlike most siblings.

"There is a healthy competition between the two," royal watcher Katie Nicholl tells Us. "Certainly when it comes to looks, there is a little friendly rivalry."

Kate and Pippa Middleton also squabble over "weird things," says a family source. "You'd see them fight over who had the worst headache or period pain!"

Okay. We're all about Pippa and Kate, but that's just TMI.

Kate and Pippa Secrets!

While Kate married Prince William, Pippa grabbed headlines for her sexy, elegant style, her chemistry with Prince Harry and later, her racy photo scandal.

"She was the sister who sparkled," Nicholl said. "She's an extrovert compared to Kate."

At boarding school, "none of the guys noticed Kate," a source says, adding that when Kate Middleton went to St. Andrews in Scotland (where she met Prince William), Pippa frequently visited to mingle with her sister's noble new pals.

"She dated a couple of the St. Andrew's lads and tried to get in with a lot of William's friends," a source says. "She wasn't sleeping around, but she flirts."

WOW! Pippa Middleton, you amaze us. Just when you think you know someone ...

The Royal Wedding couldn't have gone better for the UK's first family, but semi-racy Pippa Middleton pictures continue to surface and cause a stir online.

Pippa, the younger and less reserved sister of newly-crowned Duchess Catherine, is simply doing what a stunning, twenty-something party girl does.

But when your sister marries Prince William, everything is scrutinized.

One shows Pippa in a bra and short white skirt grinding with a guy who's clearly psyched. Not something Queen Elizabeth would be psyched about.

"They were taken a few years ago," says CBS News Royal Contributor Victoria Arbiter of the racy snaps. "Yes, Pippa is in her underwear, but she's not doing anything illegal. They're the sort of pictures that crop up for pretty much any college student."

"It's just unfortunate that Pippa's learning about fame the hard way. "

So how are Pippa and her royal in-laws handling the controversy?

File this under things that are never gonna happen, but that Steven Hirsch throws out there anyway just to get his company's name in the news.

The Vivid Entertainment CEO is offering Pippa Middleton $5 million.

Not even to star in a film, but for a single scene. Steve says Kate's sister's "beauty and attitude" could help her become a huge adult star. The fact that there is an arse appreciation society in her honor and some racy pics online won't hurt.

Hirsch is also offering $1 million to another Middleton - Kate and Pippa's brother James - to appear on-screen. Okay, now this is just getting weird.

In February 2009, Vivid offered Nadya Suleman $1 million to appear in a flick. She said no, but then Vivid reportedly bought the deed to her home.

They are dedicated, if nothing else. Fortunately for Pippa Middleton, she's not likely to be swayed by money, given her own assets, the fact that she's now Prince William's sister-in-law and her own wealthy BF Alex Loudon.

Her sister may be the Duchess of Cambridge now, but Pippa Middleton also caught the attention of millions tuning in to the British royal wedding last Friday.

Thanks to her white, body-hugging Alexander McQueen gown, some even say Pippa stole the spotlight from her older sister. We wouldn't go that far, but ...

The fascination with Pippa Middleton, Kate's maid of honor, has even spawned a Facebook page: The unofficial "Pippa Middleton Arse Appreciation Society."

It's been "Liked" by nearly 200,000 people and counting.

Pippa does look unreal in that dress. Just saying.

Not shockingly, the younger Middleton sister has quickly become one of the U.K.'s hottest bachelorettes, although she may not be that way for much longer.

She brought rumored beau Alex Loudon, a cricket player turned businessman, as her date to the wedding, and the two are reportedly getting very serious.

Regardless, tabloid interest in Pippa's personal life should only increase, thanks to Kate marrying Prince William - and because she's a great catch herself.

"At heart, Pippa is a nice, smart girl who likes to party and have fun," a source told the Daily Mail. Not a lot to dislike about that combination, is there?
