OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - Ohio will get a glimpse of royalty this week.

Pippa Middleton, sister of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, is riding through Oxford, Ohio as part of the Race Across America.

Middleton and her brother James along with six friends are participating in the relay cycling event. According to her fundraising page, the relay spans 3,000 miles and the team hopes to finish in eight days. They are riding to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and the Michael Matthews Foundation.

She is expected to make an appearance in Butler County sometime between Wednesday and Friday, depending on how fast her team is going. If it is Middleton's turn to ride, she will be biking through the area but if one of her team members is riding, she will be following along in a car.

They will also be passing through Blanchester, Chillicothe and Athens, Ohio.
