Some near royalty could be visiting Effingham this week as part of the Ride Across America.

Pippa Middleton and her younger brother James are pedaling for charity in the coast to coast event covering 12 states in eight days.

The Middletons are the sister and brother of Kate Middleton, better known now as Princess Kate, wife of Prince William, the likely future King of England.

Pippa has become a celebrity in the US since photos of her at Kate and William's wedding drew much favorable attention.

Pippa and James are riding as part of the team of their good friend James Matthews, raising money in memory of James' brother who died during a Mt. Everest climb.

Pippa is also riding to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

The Ride Across America time station is at Effingham High School and will be in place through Friday.
