Pippa Middleton under fire

Friday, April 20, 2012

Kate’s sister causes more embarrassment for the royal family.

Pippa Middleton has ruined any chances of being accepted by the royal family after a wild weekend in Paris that is likely to see her questioned by police and possibly even arrested. The Duchess of Cambridge’s little sister was in the French capital to attend the debauched birthday party of a socialite friend when a member of her group pointed a pistol at onlookers in broad daylight.

Despite a recent spate of fatal shootings in France, Pippa seemed to enjoy the poor-taste prank, smirking alongside the gunslinger in a flash sports car. The incident’s caused widespread outrage in Britain, especially inside Buckingham Palace. Royal insiders tell Woman’s Day the Queen is furious at Pippa, as are Prince William and Pippa’s sister, Kate. “This has been a terrible weekend for Pippa,” longtime royal reporter Bill Coles tells us. “She has shown very poor judgment by spending her time partying with people behaving like spoiled Euro-trash with more money than brains.

“Wills and Kate have made great effort to modernise the image of the royal family by being perceived as hard-working and down to earth – and it’s very unhelpful if Pippa is mixing with a bunch of over-indulged brats. “The Queen has really warmed to Kate, but she is furious that Pippa has caused such a scandal. Now Pippa’s put her sister in a difficult position. Kate always defends Pippa when she speaks to the Queen or her palace advisors – but this time she would be defending the indefensible.

“It’s so hard for Kate, because she’s so mild-mannered and timid. She will hate having to talk to Pippa about her actions. Pippa is causing Kate so much stress and worry, when William and the rest of Kate’s family always hoped she’d be a source of support for her.” French authorities are also unimpressed at Pippa’s behaviour, with the Paris Judicial Police set to launch a probe amid a gun clampdown, and Pippa is reported to be in for a grilling.
