Kate is a very lovely young lady she is going to make an excellent wife. A wonderful Daughter in law. And a very loving mother in the not so distant future. She also has lovely green eyes.

What does that have to do with Kate's family, wealth or background? I'm confused.

Hopefully not for another 30 or so years, giving her plenty of time to grow into the role.

She just may well be... I cannot fathom being all those roles.

The problem here is with the verb. Would be, could be, might be are perhaps more appropriate.

She MIGHT be, Queen.
She maybe a wife and a mother, but not neccesarily to William or his children.

Plus this has nothing to do with her family, wealth and background.

It seems that the Middletons are not placed so very differently from the Shands (Camilla's family) in being long-established in the moneyed middle class. The Shands had perhaps traveled further afield and made more of a name for themselves, but the main difference is that Camilla's father married up while Kate's married down. From a royal watcher's perspective, I wish that Prince William looked set to marry a girl whose background had more luster BUT I also think he should marry the girl he loves.

Who cares if kate is rich or not. William loves her dearley.And he has plenty of money.
And i would not knock the duchess of glouchester. She is a tireless worker and a very nice lady!

Not in the sense of having "old money" to inherit. Her parents have a successful business.

I'm sorry - is your question asking whether the sister went to college, and what the sister's job is? Or is it 2 questions, what does the sister do and where did Katherine Middleton go to college?

I don't know if or what college she attended, but I understand Pippa works as an events coordinator for parties.

Pippa is running the Party Times website for Party Pieces. I subscribe to the newsletter and it was sent over her signature just last week.

Here's a link to the Party Times, which I think is quite well done:
The Party Times

She may still be doing party planning, as well.

All three Middleton children went to Marlborough College; Pippa is said to have attended the University of Edinburgh (this last from Wiki).

ed to add.. this MailOnline article of 27 May 2007 states "Pippa has just graduated in English from Edinburgh University" and "James, who's also at Edinburgh..."

To finish off, also from the MailOnline of 19 July 2009: "He [James] dropped out of Edinburgh University to start his own business, the Cake Kit Company, two years ago. Explaining his decision, James said he just didn't feel comfortable wasting his life in a classroom and wanted to try his hand at entrepreneurship."
