Quite apart from James' connection to Scotland via his family's recent Glen Affric connection, I don't see anything odd about them having a Scottish theme.  They are British, and Scotland is still part of the island of Britain and of the Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  If they like things Scottish, why not incorporate them into their wedding?  Isn't imitation still considered to be the sincerest form of flattery?  

I am now mildly interested in this wedding.  Whisky and bagpipes work for me.  Not sure about the haggis canapes.

I think they'll know what she'll be wearing.  Isn't she staying with them?   If I were Ma and Pippy, and Waity, I'd be worried about what Meghan is going to turn up in.

I think when it comes to your wedding you should be able to have whatever type of wedding that you would like. If you are lucky enough to have an over the top budget then do whatever you want. This is their day so I hope it is all they dream it will be.
As someone who is dying to visit Scotland one day and with their obvious connections, I can understand why they might want to incorporate it into their day.

The Mildly Matthews Middlingtons.
Could be a name of a reality show or something.
They should do that for their wedding.


(edit: come to think of it, will she change her name, or keep her maiden name? Pippa Middleton has cache as sister to the wife of the future king. Pippa Matthews means nothing other than wife of maybe some bought-for titled person).

I wouldn't be surprised if Pippa decides to adopt the title of Lady Glen Affric after she's married. She'd enjoy that, I think.

I would think that would get her laughed out of the aristo circles she wants to run around in.

My guess is she'll keep her maiden name, whether she likes it or not.  By that I mean people like us and also the press will keep referring to her as Pippa Middleton.  If her sister is still called Kate Middleton after more than five years as Duchess of Cambridge, I don't like Pippa's chances.

Yes because it is a title that comes with the estate not an inherit title. So whoever owns the estate has the title. And she can't use Lady as long as her husband doesn't own it. Her title would be something like "Mrs Matthews of Glen Affric the younger" because her father-in-law is still alive and still owns the estate.

Have just done a bit of googling about lairds, including the web page of the Lord Lyon.  "The Court of the Lord Lyon is the heraldic authority for Scotland and deals with all matters relating to Scottish Heraldry and Coats of Arms and maintains the Scottish Public Registers of Arms and Genealogies."

According to that authority, the term "laird" is a description rather than a title.  To have any claim to distinction, the owner of Glen Affric would have to have been granted a coat of arms by the Lord Lyon, which signifies nobility.  Even then, it would not give him the status of a peer.  As far as I can tell, Matthews has not been granted arms.  I suspect he would not have even applied for them.  From the little I know of him he seems a reasonable sort of person and must have some sense to have achieved the success he has achieved.  Since he has no real connection to the property, merely having bought it and developed it for commercial purposes, and does not identify as living there, and does not have any particular association with the region or the people living there, he probably would prefer to preserve his dignity and not to give the powers that be the opportunity to laugh him and his bank account out of town.  

I think James and Pippa would be well advised to downplay this connection unless they eventually decide to live there permanently and raise their children there and forge a connection to the land and the local people.  I hope James has more sense than to encourage any Middleton zeal on Pippa's part to claim entitlement for them to be known as James Matthews, Younger of Glen Affric and Mrs. Matthews, Younger, which is all they could be known until he inherits the property, if indeed he does inherit it.

There was a short thing about his father and brother yestrday evening on German TV. Something about very rich people and they said he was a selfmade man who bought Eden Rock when it was in ruins and made a fortune out of it but his son Spencer, who is working at the hotel doesn't get it just as a present, he said his children must work for the things and prove that they are ready and worthy to get them. So it is not even clear whether James will get Glen Affric or not one day. Oh and his father didn't mention Pippa or her in-laws  Thumb up, he seemed quite nirmal for a rich guy.
