Pippa Middleton is set to become a Lady following her marriage to fiancée James Matthews.

Her sister holds the title of Duchess of Cambridge but it looks like Pippa will soon have a title of her own.

According to reports in the Daily Mail, Matthews is heir to a vast 10,000 acre property Scotland. that features a historic castle and deer park.

Her future father-in-law is David Matthews, the Laird of Glen Affric.

The estate, which is located 15 miles from Loch Ness in the Socttish highlands, is used by the Matthews family regularly as a retreat from their London home.

Members of the public can also enjoy a stay as the lavish property for hunting parties. A three-night stay costs £11,880 (€14,163) for up to eight people.

The Queen's grandmother stayed at the estate in the late 19th century.

Australian art historian Michael Reed explained to the Daily Mail: "In coming years and particularly as the future Lady Glenaffric, Pippa Middleton will be able to entertain lavishly on her husband's grand Scottish Glen Affric Estate .

"This is because Pippa herself comes from a family who is familiar with vast landed estates - her great grandmother Olive Middleton grew up at her family's Potternewton Hall Estate, near Leeds - leaving trust funds behind for her descendants."

David, a former mechanic, received his title when he purchased the estate in 2008 but he doesn't use the title as a form of address. His son James will inherit the title upon his father's death but he may not choose to formally use his title.

In the future Pippa, as James' wife, would be able to use the courtesy title of Mrs Matthews of Glen Affric the younger, anywhere within the Commonwealth.

When David passes away she would then be known as Lady Glen Affric.
