Pippa Middleton's 30th birthday: What next for the girl about town?

Prince George

Pippa was one of the first people to meet Prince George a few hours after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left hospital with him, and she's likely to have a key role in his life.

As the maid of honour at the royal wedding, she is almost certain to be named one of his godparents.

Sporty, disciplined Pippa represents the kind of values that William and Kate will want to pass on to their son.
