Like many doting aunts, Pippa Middleton likes to be surrounded by photos of her niece and nephew. The younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton is the proud auntie of Prince George and Princess Charlotte and even has a sweet photo of George saved as her phone screen.
A royal fan made the revelation on Twitter, after she spotted Pippa at an airport in London. "I just saw the real Pippa Middleton in Heathrow airport and my god she's GORGEOUS," wrote Twitter user Grace Stroup.
She then excitedly added: "Her lock screen was the future queen and king (Kate and George)!"

Kate and Prince George feature on Pippa Middleton's phone
Grace had a brief encounter with Pippa when the writer rushed past her on an escalator, but didn't forget her manners.
"She said thank you and was extremely nice, and then I did a double-take and instantly knew who it was," Grace told People. "She pulled out her phone and her lock screen had a picture of George and Kate, smiling together looking just like a regular family – it was so cute!"
Describing Pippa as "extremely lovely and polite", the 16-year-old added: "She had a grace about her. It was surreal to see her looking so normal."
Pippa recently completed her first full marathon in Kenya
It is not known where the writer was travelling to, but Pippa is no stranger to airports. The jet-setter has recently returned from a trip to Kenya, where she completed her first full marathon.
Pippa completed the gruelling 42km course of Tusk Trust's Safaricom Marathon in just under four hours – placing her 30th overall out of the 200 competitors. She was also the first white female to complete the full marathon and finished seventh female overall.
She wrote in HELLO! magazine: "I decided that a marathon was a 'life box' that needed ticking and this year was my time – despite it being one of the toughest in the world, with temperatures rising to more than 30ºC, at an altitude of 5,550ft and with the possibility of bumping into lions or rhinos."
On nearing the finish line, she added: "I was exhausted. My eyes welled up with tears. Could I really manage this? I turned right and thought of the schoolchildren, the rhinos, elephants and lions, the incredible Tusk projects – the reason I was doing this. It was tough – tougher than anything I'd been faced with before and required every inch of my energy, stamina and stubbornness."
