Her sister might be married to the heir to the British throne, but Pippa Middleton is quickly becoming the most sought-after Middleton sister. First, Pips landed a $500,000 book deal, then word leaked that television networks were embroiled in a close bidding war for the elder Middleton's first full-length interview. Is it all work and no play for the 27-year-old British socialite?

Far from it. Pippa, who split from longtime banker boyfriend Alex Loudon over the summer, is now allegedly dating George Percy, heir to the Duke of Northumberland, according to The Sun. Mr. Percy's not just any ol' 27-year-old guy, as the title illustrates. His family's dukedom is one of the richest in Britain, and George stands to inherit approximately $500 million. Not only that, but George's childhood home is Alnick Castle, also known as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movies.

Pippa met George while they were both attending Edinburgh University, but they didn't start cozying up until New Year's Eve, a friend close to the couple tells The Sun. While some have concerns about Pippa's aristocratic aspirations, George is apparently head over heels. The source says, "George is completely smitten and in love with her."

We have to admit, “Duchess Pippa” does have a nice ring to it.
