Pippa power alive and well
In case anyone has forgotten, Kate Middleton has a sister.
While Kate has been getting all the attention on this side of the ocean with the royal tour, Pippa hasn’t been lost in the spotlight in the UK.
She’s now on the August cover of Tatler magazine, a publication featuring the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
Pippa is the second Middleton to grace the cover. Kate was the cover girl in February with an Andy Warhol-type treatment. Pippa’s picture is one taken from the royal wedding, accessorized with a wreath of colorful flowers.
The article is simply titled ‘Pippa. The bottom line,’ a not-so-subtle reference to the media frenzy that enveloped the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister when her back end became the focus of photos from the royal wedding.
In the article, writer Annabel Rivkin poses the scenario that surrounds the 27-year-old: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that, post-Diana, we need to respect the Duchess of Cambridge's personal space. But it appears to be open season on her sister — will she blossom or buckle under the pressure?”
The author also lists some potential suitors for Pippa, though her appearance at Wimbledon with ex-cricketer Alex Loudon suggests that, contrary to rumours, the two have not split. If that’s not the case, some names to consider: Robert Kennedy III, Prince Andrea Casiraghi, James Blunt.
Then again, maybe Kate has found some possibilities for her sister from her travels in Canada. Suggestions?
