Pippa Middleton: "Bottom" Notoriety is Startling

by at .

Her Royal Hotness. Lord of the Arsetocracy.

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton may have adjusted to the royal spotlight effortlessly, but for her little sister Pippa Middleton, it hasn't been quite so simple.

The Pips

"It's a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30 on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom," she writes in her new book.

"One day I might be able to make sense of this. In the meantime I think it's fair to say it has its upside and its downside," says the owner of the UK's most famous backside.

Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends is a party guide from Pippa Middleton, whose parents run an event- and party-planning company.

Pippa, 29, acknowledges the public's fascination with her family.

"I know many of you will pick up the book out of nothing more than curiosity," she says.

"I can assure you that it feels even stranger to me than it probably does to you to have seen so much written about me when I have done so little to paint a picture of myself."

"I certainly have opportunities many can only dream of - but in most ways I'm a typical girl in her 20s trying to forge a career and represent herself in what can sometimes seem rather strange circumstances."

"One of the most attractive has been the chance to publish Celebrate."

It's available October 30, and sure to be a top-seller. In the meantime, browse though some of our favorite Pippa Middleton photos in our gallery below:
