In Pippa Middleton’s new book, “Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends,” the royal maid of honor and sister of Kate opens up about her new-found fame.

“It’s a bit startling to achieve global recognition (if that’s the right word) before the age of thirty, on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom,” Middleton writes. “I’m a typical girl in her twenties trying to forge a career and represent herself in what can sometimes seem rather strange circumstances.”

Middleton, 29, adds, “It feels even stranger to me than it probably does to you to have seen so much written about me when I have done so little to paint a picture of myself. This is my first chance to do that.”

The book, out Oct. 31, offers a year of successful party-planning tips and recipes.  Middleton is the editor of The Party Times, an online party magazine and has worked for the family’s event company, Party Pieces.

“The nurturing of friendship, family and home feels more important than ever to me,” she writes.

Even before her first book has been released, there are rumors of a second book from Middleton on wedding planning on a budget, with another to follow on children’s parties.
