Pippa Middleton is set to walk down the aisle tomorrow, and she's going to gain more than just a husband.

Once she ties the knot with her financier fiancé James Matthews, the British beauty will also be privy to a fancy new title. And while the 33-year-old won't become a duchess or princess like her older sister Kate Middleton, she will indeed by a lady.

Due to the fact that Matthews is heir to the Scottish title of Laird of Glen Affric—a position his father currently holds because he owns a sprawling 10,000-acre Scottish highlands estate—when the 41-year-old inherits that title, Pippa will become Lady Glen Affric. Until that time, the royal-in-law will be deemed Mrs. Matthews of Glen Affric the younger. However, she is not formally required to use either name and can choose to ignore the change altogether.
