Pippa Middleton

Hello! magazine reported that Pippa and Kate Middleton have earned themselves a enduring nickname from British society commentators: the "Sizzler Sisters."

The pair have gotten the nickname from Tatler because of their quick rise to the top of the heap of British society, earning them what Hello! dubs "social cachet."

The reason for Kate's quick climb up the social ladder is obvious: her ongoing romantic relationship with Prince William, whom she met while the two were studying at the University of St Andrews in Scotland.

Kate's sister, Pippa, has also developed her own network of upper-crust social contacts. She dated wealthy JJ Jardine Patterson, heir to a Hong Kong banking fortune, for several years. More recently, her rumored romantic partner has been George Percy, heir to the dukedom of Northumberland.

Pippa works for a party planning company in London, and was photographed by Hello! with Trudie Styler (wife of Sting) at the Royal Parks charity gala last week.

The sizzling nickname is reportedly not the only one the sisters have garnered in the past. The Daily Mail wrote in 2007 (during William and Kate's brief separation period) that the girls were also called "The Wisteria Sisters" by some -- because "they're highly decorative, terribly fragrant and have a ferocious ability to climb."
