(CBS) While Prince William and Kate have been traveling through Canada, the Duchess of Cambridge's sister, Pippa Middleton, has been spotted once again in London - not at Wimbledon, but on newsstands.

The 27-year-old has landed the cover of Britain's Tatler magazine.

The August issue's cover photo was taken at her sister's April 29 wedding to Prince William, where Middleton was the maid of honor. The image is shown in black and white, surrounded by a ring of brightly-colored flowers.

The cover brandishes the title "Pippa: The bottom line." Inside the magazine, an article by Annabel Rivkin examines why the younger Middleton daughter has become so popular.

"Pippa seems almost to have become the whole point of the most recent British  royal wedding. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are jolly and popular; the consensus seems to be that William has chosen wisely and that Kate is a solid, grounded middle-class soul who will inject some focus into a royal family battered by its own human frailty. But while Kate and William bounce off to Wales, where he can be a helicopter rescue pilot and she can be a housewife, Pippa...has gone global," writes Rivkin, according to Us magazine.

The magazine also lines up 10 potential suitors, the Telegraph reports, including Robert Kennedy III, Prince Andrea Casiraghi of Monaco and Pierre Sarkozy, the son of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

The Duchess of Cambridge has also been a Tatler cover girl. According to the Daily Mail, the magazine's February issue featured a cover photo of the former Kate Middleton from her engagement announcement which was shown, Andy Warhol-style, in four different-colored pictures.
