The Bride's Parents
Kate Middleton's parents, Michael Francis and Carole Elizabeth Middleton, have two other children, Phillipa Charlotte and James. The couple met when they were working as flight attendants for British Airways. He was later promoted to flight dispatcher and the couple married in the 1970s. They became wealthy businesspeople after they launched Party Pieces, a childrens partyware business in 1987. Pippa and James have either worked for the company or launched their own spinoffs.
