^She’s clueless on everything but are avocados really that expensive in England?  They’re not anywhere I’ve shopped.  About .25 each.  Even frozen mashed avocado is priced like peas.

There was even a shortage of them in the UK this year which made them even more expensive.  The pipster is truly dense.

I think Pippa is deliberately being out of touch. She wants to look highbrow and sophisticated. It's really gross, especially considering she is literally meant to be fronting a campaign for kids in poverty.

Bumping along! Pregnant Kate recycles favourite Christmas coat and Russian hat as she and William accompany Prince Philip on a walk to St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham - and sister Pippa make a surprise appearance

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a church service alongside Prince Philip and the Queen
    The Duke of Edinburgh arrived on foot with Prince William and Kate who is pregnant with their third child
    The Queen, however, appeared to arrive alone, travelling by car along with a female companion

Of course a Middleton had to spring from behind some bush to make an appeareance at any one walk to church at Sandringham!

I don't know if it's the style of the coat, but she looked a bit fuller in the front.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on January 07, 2018, 04:42:25 pm
^ Pretty sure it's the style of the coat. Her last appearance was at that hospital (or hospice?) fairly recently and she was as flat as cardboard, except the boobs which were huge.. Could have been a wonder bra. We shall see of course. Considering how flat she was recently and how fit she is (and sports addicted) she'd show faily late-ish, esp as also a first pregnancy, so my bet is on the coat.

Usual Medd gatecrash which they are well known for.
They really are incorrigible.   No surprise the Queen arrived separately as she is alleged to find the Medds 'quite detestable'.  Her own words according to those close.

I actually can't believe that she cycles at all in London, being a sports nut or not. Just looking at the pic of her cycling (without a helmet!) next to a bus has me in hives. I am not afraid of cycling in traffic (like a friend of mine), but I wouldn't dare cycle in London traffic. And a crazy number of cyclists dies every year in London, puts me off even more. :nervous:

I guess her title is now "socialite/ housewife".

In true Middleton style, I am expecting Pips to be making a pregnancy announcement after Kate presents sprog #3.  There is no way Ma is going to let Harry and Eugenie's weddings push the Midds out of the press.
Who wants to bet a 'visible bump' will be seen sometime this summer when Pips and Forever Alone Marshmallow Boy make yet another cringeworthy arrival at Wimbledon?

Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on January 29, 2018, 09:39:42 am
I am too suprised she hasn't announced a pregnancy yet. Due to her age, being desperate to get married, and also children ensuring bigger and more generous divorce settlements, and the way the Middletons and their offspring are, I'm guessing she's definitely trying since the wedding, but having trouble getting or staying pregnant. :dontknow: If they are hoping/ trying for children, I do wish them luck. I don't like them, but I also don't wish them ill (not implying anyone is! just saying  :) )

Post by: leogirl on January 30, 2018, 03:31:11 am
Sometimes women have trouble getting pregnant the first 6-18 months after marriage. If she's not pregnant by their 2-year anniversary then it's likely an infertility issue.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: HRH Tiana of NOLA on January 30, 2018, 04:06:02 am

Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on January 30, 2018, 05:11:11 pm
^^ Yeah I think so too. The official advice is that it's normal to take about 6 months, but I've heard many times that if it doesn't happen after 2 years you should go to a doc, so allowing up to 2 years is kind of considered to be "normal".

Post by: leogirl on January 31, 2018, 05:16:17 am
I think it depends on what kind of birth control Pippa was using, which (of course) we have no way of knowing. Sometimes it can take the body time to re-adjust to regular monthly feminine cycles, especially when used for many years.  :dontknow:

    Pippa, 34, was spotted out with banker Tom Kingston who she dated in 2011
    Romance fizzled out but pair have stayed friends over the years
    Tom, a friend of Prince William, is now dating Lady Gabriella Windsor
    Pippa has blissfully settled into married life with financier James Matthews

Why would she? She isn't at the top of the list anymore, she's not married to Percy or Harry, and she's not 'happening' despite her best attempts. She likely has to work on marketing her dolt brother to women all over the place and I am certain that she'll end up unable to help her family's ambitions.

Scathing comments about her and her ultimate social climbing family too.

They quite foolishly broke cover and didn't think that just living their own lives would do them better; instead Pippa put on a front of being unable to do much due to constrictions and stupidly threw a huge chance away at probably being a successful author. She threw so much away and basically could have ended up happy, but instead chose to basically pressure men to marry and take care of her. She could have had a thriving career with money in her own right, but instead chose to mooch. Now the biggest names she can get to her parties are the Duchess of York and she's unable to get anywhere major herself.

I just had the thought that maybe Pippa got dropped from the Heart Foundation and ended up with the inability to find herself as patron of anything. Now she's just another London housewife whose career is social climbing and trying to recruit clients for her husband's business.

Any bets that she's hankering after a position as mistress, then as Harry's second wife? History shows that royal mistresses can become royal consorts, starting from Anne Boleyn to Camilla. Seducing Harry would be the start, then become recognized mistress (with the husband paid off and given favors in exchange for being compliant) and then Pippa can start basically moving in on the prince.

I do wonder what motivated James Matthews to marry her in the first place, perhaps a promise of handling royal accounts in the future?

^^It's odd that she would wear such a long coat to a.) go to the gym and b.) ride a bike. If she is expecting, she's probably waiting to announce after Kate gives birth. Either way, I'm happy for her.

It means nothing to me how many sprogs she has, as long as we, the British taxpayers, do not have to fund them she can do what she likes.  If the medds think the public are interested they need to have a very good rethink on that front.  DM comments are always scathing when there are articles about her.  Let her crawl under a stone and stay there, sick of articles in the media about her  -  all no doubt because she has the paps on speed dial to let them know where she is going to be.  I am indifferent about her being pregnant, if that is what she wants and is happy about it, then I wish her good luck.  Unfortunately, they are such a vile, deceitful family that they have very few followers, and as it happens, irrespective of what they think they are, that family are commoners.  One of their daughers married bill medd, fine, but that does not make them "royal".  Council cath is only a married in royal, which is a major difference to being a blood royal.  I think Pippa has ideas way above her station, but if that is her way so be it, she is the one who looks the idiot. thinking she is "royal" and that the public fawn over her, wrong on both counts.

Update

'Untrue and scandalous': Pippa Middleton's multi-millionaire father-in-law David Matthews, 74, hits out as French police 'charge' him for sexually assaulting a teenage girl two decades ago

    David Matthews is alleged to have carried out the attack between 1998 and 1999
    A spokeperson for Matthews said he 'categorically denies the allegation and unequivocally contests the untrue and scandalous accusation'
    Matthews is under investigation for one attack in Paris and another in St Barts
    He was arrested at Paris Orly airport on Tuesday and has been released on bail
    He is the father of James Matthews, 41, who is married to Pippa Middleton, and also of Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews

^ hyperlink, hope it works!

^^ Tiana, according to the article it seems to have been one person, during a period of time (twice?) in two locations, one he had "power" over, so an employee's child? A school friend of one of his kids?

"alleged to have carried out the attacks on a teenage girl between 1998 and 1999. He is accused of one attack in Paris and another in St Barts."

"He is accused of two historic sex attacks, one in Paris, and one on St Barts, according to a judicial source."

"Citing legal sources, French national news agency AFP said Matthews was now under investigation for the 'r ape of a minor by a person with authority over his victim'.

Matthews has now been released on bail, subject to undisclosed conditions. It is not known whether he has retained his passport, or whether he can travel home.

He was first arrested on arrival at Paris Orly airport last Tuesday, and placed in custody at the Brigade for the Protection of Minors. He denies any wrongdoing.

Matthews, who lives permanently on St Barts with his wife Jane, 70, originally spent a full 48 hours in custody in Paris - the maximum allowed under French criminal law before charges have been filed."

PS Note to self: hyperlinking works!

PPS James looks a lot like his father I'd say!

First Uncle Gary's scandals and now this...

I don't think Pippa is handling this well; she thought she was secure and had it all, but now once this hits the big time, I am certain that she'll have problems coping. She first got into that issue with the French gun scandal and now this. Uncle Gary happened while Kate was trying for William, which should have scuppered the relationship and I am certain that this is going to be another black mark against Kate among the courtiers and royals. The royal system has never been known for its fairness and I am certain Ma Midds is having dry heaves at this latest news.

The age of consent in France, then and now, is fifteen years I believe. Obviously if there was violent physical attack, (and it is only alleged at the moment, as there has been no trial) then there was no consent, but it appears this child must have been under the age of fifteen at the time.

Even if the age of consent is fifteen, there's no excuse for adultery and fifteen is still a child. If he was married, then that makes it all the more inexcusable. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean that you should. He had no business messing with a kid.

If ma's previous form is anything to go by she'll instruct Pippa to get pregnant to deflect from this scandal in the same way she did regarding waity and the topless incident in France.

By saying these are the incidents they are concentrating on, by implication there are more.  He's got an expensive  lawyer and could well get off the charges whether he's done the things he's accused of or not. However there must be more than just the word of  the young woman in question for an arrest warrant to have been issued.

  I doubt any of this will  harm Pippa's in the long run,  neither should the RF be bothered  by their links by marriage to David Matthews; after Andrew's alleged sordid goings on the RF should feel right at home with this lot.

The woman has pressed charges, not the police nor the courts.  The police are bound, by law, to take a suspect in if a citizen presses charges which is what happened here.  That is an important distinction.  What is going to happen next is an investigation will take place by the authorities and then they will see if formal charges can be made by the prosecutor.

I suggest using the thread created for this discussion under Members Only if possible.

Post by: marion on April 02, 2018, 08:35:19 am
I'm not familiar with the US system but in the UK no one would be arrested unless there was credible evidence. Someone making an allegation would lead to an investigation of course, but not charges. France if course is a different system again but this allegation was made several months ago so I would imagine there's already been some sort of investigations by now.

@Yoooer. I've noted your comment re MO thread but thought if I reply there it might be confusing as it wouldn't be apparent which post I was referring to  :flower:


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: YooperModerator on April 02, 2018, 10:01:39 am
I don't care what country it is but in the western judicial system what happens is somebody presses charges against an individual and then a person is arrested or detained on suspicion of such and such a crime. 

There are no official charges brought against anybody until evidence is collected, each side is allowed discovery and there is a hearing.  Not a preliminary, bail hearing but a criminal court hearing.

This is not the case when somebody is standing there with a loaded, smoking gun in front of the police and a dead body.  That's different.

R*pe of a minor is an automatic arrest on suspicion if there is a person pressing charges.  They have to investigate.  They have to bring the person in.  But, that is a million miles away from a criminal charge after discovery.

The courts and police have to be very careful to avoid unlawful arrest to avoid being sued for wrongful detention.  In order to do that, they bring the person in, ask questions or don't ask if there is a lawyer present and begin the process of evidence gathering which is what they are doing now.  Some people do accuse for attention or money damages and that's a real problem for law enforcement.  It happens.

If they had strong evidence at this point, there would have been zero bail.  The crime is too high for that.  So, I'm a little suspicious.  The guy may be a horror show.  I don't know.  But, I do know that he'd be going nowhere if they had locked down proof.

And, this really has nothing to do with Pippa.  She can't be tarred with this brush.  Her own family is sick enough without needing this guy.  Why they don't go after UG is the real mystery.

Oh there's no mystery there!!! . It's long been thought that UG has something on willy that means UG  is in effect  protected . There were a lot of shady goings on at Maison BangBang that willy may have been part of that  the  RF would never want to see the light of day !!

In the UK,   it used to be that the police  needed credible evidence before they could arrest or charge someone. When my husband was a senior officer  in the Met  you could bring someone in for questioning but you needed credible evidence before you could arrest or charge someone.  Since then the  Power of Arrest has changed so you can be arrested if there the slightest suspicion of a wrong-doing. A bit unfair on the innocent as unfortunately mud sticks.

I agree none of this is Pippa's fault but her family have made themselves so unpopular in the UK so she  won't get any sympathy.  The mids want glory by their association with the RF so  they'll to have to out up with the embarrassment of association with this latest issue.  They can't have it both ways

^It's the same here with arrest first, ask questions later.  It breeds all kinds of greed, spite and complete dilution of those who are really victims.  Crying Wolf Syndrome.  People stop taking it seriously.  They also rush to judge before a person is convicted.  Crazy world but I do hope justice is done here.

And, no, the Midds have made very few friends in their quest for glory so it was inevitable that something would come along.  UG should be behind bars if all that has happened is true and at least should see a court room and trial.

Which brings me to just something about this that doesn't pass the smell test.  It has, so far, all the hallmarks of a media distraction and destruction.  TPTB have had years to go after the Midds.  Why now, I ask myself.  What's different now?  Pippa's still just as annoying now as she was 7 or so years ago.

Makes me think is all.

I'm wondering if Will pulled some strings to keep his Uncle in LawGary out of jail, at the behest of Ma Midds. Would not surprise me in the least. Maybe his wife was "paid off" to stay with him but what person in her right mind would stay with someone who beat her up.

Pippa Middleton steps out in Chelsea for the first time since her father-in-law was charged in France with alleged violent physical attack of 15-year-old girl
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5582175/Pippa-Middleton-steps-time-father-law-charged.html
Splash photo agency is used when celebrities call to get exposure for themselves. So is this to show that there’s nothing going on regarding the charges towards her father-in-law as Pippa’s our and about not looking worried? Whatever happened to her fancy car? I guess she needs to ride on her bike in order to be seen.  :bored:

Kate'll be "back in great figure since giving birth" and "Pippa is pregnant" at H&M wedding, that would definitely steal some thunder.

KATE'S CHIPPER AT PIPPA NIPPER

Pippa Middleton is pregnant with her first child just weeks after father-in-law scandal

Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister, 34, and husband James Matthews, 42, told family after 12-week scan

PIPPA Middleton is pregnant with her first child, the Sun on Sunday can reveal today.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister, 34, and financier husband James Matthews, 42, are said to be overjoyed.
Pippa Middleton is pregnant with her first child and 'told friends after her 12-week scan'



They told close family and friends last week after her 12-week scan.

It comes at a difficult time for the family, after James’s dad, David, 74, was accused of violent physical attack.

The Duchess of Cambridge "could not have been more delighted" on learning little sister Pippa was pregnant, a friend revealed.

Kate, only weeks away from giving birth to her third child, was the first person after Pippa’s husband, James Matthews, to hear the good news.

[...]

The announcement comes weeks after James’ younger brother, former Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, 28, and his 32-year-old fiancée, model Vogue Williams, confirmed they were expecting their first child.

Pippa was said to be eager to start a family after marrying financier James in May last year.

[...]

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6111112/pippa-middleton-baby-news-announcement/

Baby supposedly due in October.

If this is true and Pip is only about 12 weeks along, then how does skinny uber fit Pippa show so early with her 1st pregnancy and K barely shows with her 3rd 5-6 months in??

Didn't I say an announcement would come close to the wedding? Though I expected her to simply show up pregnant at H's wedding, but that would have been terrible terrible manners and a total social faux pas / suicide, so this is maybe as close as she could dare for the reveal. Will also build up some hype around her.

"The Sun on Sunday can reveal today", so this must definitely be true and some deal struck or agreement made, as they can finally "reveal today"..


PS Well well well!

I thought the same.... :dontknow:


^^^ It wasn't headline news when I looked and must have been only briefly, it was the dead of night in Europe anyway, so few would have noticed it as headline news anyway..


^^ Maybe, but I don't really think so, no one's about a 3rd really excited... There'll be the birth, name reveal, 1st pic and Waity's 1st appearance after (H's wedding), plus christening, so 4 separate but connected events that'll be the only of interest, not like with the 1st an onslaught of media.. And 3 of the 4 "events" to look forward to within 3 weeks of each other, tops. So not much time to draw out maximum media effect either.

I don't think it's to distract from father Matthews, for that the announcement came too late tbh and it doesn't bear all that much weight. The reality is more like, both James and Pippa aren't the youngest, had a children wish (depending on how many they want, gotta get to work sooner rather than later), and in case of a divorce Pippa will be better off with kids. Father Matthews really comes in at the bottom of a long list of priorities on why have kids.

Funny though that Spencer & James are to be dads around the same time, and that Spencer's now-finace was not welcome at the wedding. Spencer and Vogue certainly fast-tracked their romance!

Pippa's timely baby tip-off: How news she's 'expecting in October' shifts spotlight from troubled father-in-law to his VERY different sons... but will James Matthew's wife now reach out to Spencer's pregnant fiancee Vogue after wedding ban?

    Reports that Pippa Middleton is expecting couldn't have come at a better time
    It emerged this weekend that she has already undergone her 12-week scan
    Pippa's brother-in-law Spencer Matthews is also expecting with his fiancee
    This comes as David Matthews is being investigated regarding two violent physical attack claims


Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5645081/Relief-Matthews-family-spotlight-shifts-violent physical attack-claims.html

Why should Pip reach out to Vogue? What kind of name is "Vogue" anyway? Had I been in Pip's shoes, Vogue wouldn't have been welcome either, and it's nothing to do with Vogue, but with womanizing, childish changes-women-like-his-socks Spencer. For all we know they get along great, no need to make a drama out of Vogue not being invited. The rule was clear and a rule I'd have in place for family parties (weddings, christenings etc) too: no ring (i.e. "fresh", non-serious relationship), no bring.

Though I don't like any of the Midds, I feel strangely happy for Pips, when she got engaged and married and now at her pregnancy as well. It's weird, but I'm sincerely happy for them and wish them the best. :sigh: :stars: :loveshower: 8) :flower:

In other words, no one really cares as this is the only comment since the article got published. Funny that the DM is even calling out the timing f the pregnancy as it would indeed shift to the two brothers and their fiancé/wife's dueling pregnancies and lifestyle and away from their father's sex scandal.

Aye, I agree with Karl Lagerfeld about her unattractivess.
She's going to have unfortunate looking children like her sister.
I'm happy that no one from the aristocracy accepted her and the men just used her to pork.

^ That didn't even click with me, but definitely!
I like her ensemble, though the choice of coat with sandals is odd, to put it mildly...
She looks quite old here (mouth area - no wonder with that leathery skin).

I'd like a closer look at her necklace, looks a bit like it's complementing her engagement ring

'Adding a nursery? How many bedrooms has this joint got? Surely they must have a couple of spare bedrooms that could be repainted etc. Their house is going to end up bigger than BP if they don't watch it!

Post by: HRHOlya on May 01, 2018, 07:36:50 pm
^ Seriously. Wasn't the place big enough already? And they had just renovations done. I *despise* renovating, so much work. But I guess when you can afford to change your house nilly willy and rent someplace nice and have others do the clean-up and all with you just pointing fingers and barking orders, it's nowhere near the same work.

"Pippa and James are currently living in rented accommodation while extensive renovation work is carried out on their west London home."
Always "extensive renovation work
", did James buy some shack that falls apart that needs so much maintenance for crying out loud?

"According to the Sun, the couple have already spent thousands of pounds updating their dream home over the last few months and are now splashing out a further £1.2million on a rear extension, air conditioning and a nursery.

The couple are hoping the work will be completed in time for their new arrival later this year.
"

"In November last year, MailOnline reported the couple were building a first floor extension above the kitchen to make room for a new bathroom complete with a 'vanity basin' and his and hers sinks.  

Their mansion already boasts a gym, an underground cinema, a lift, a 'staff room' as well as six bedrooms.
"

This is ridiculous, as James had the planning permission ages ago and did "his and hers bathrooms and wardrobes" before Pippy moved in, to seal the deal. How many "his and hers" sinks and bathrooms do they need?

She has probably wormed her way in again with her head sympathetically on the side and viperish clucking whilst serving hot chocolate and cheese on toast late in to the night as she did with poor, reeled in hapless Willy.   Probably suits the Pipster too to have her running about after them.

TALK OF THE TOWN: Expecting mother Pippa Middleton is spotted walking her beloved black Labrador after pooch broke its tail
Quote
Spare a thought for poor Pippa Middleton, whose beloved black labrador is having a ruff time after it broke its tail.
Pippa was spotted out last week walking the unlucky lab with her other dog, a cocker spaniel named Rafa, and for once all eyes were not on her famously perfect bottom, but the dog's.
Pippa, 34, and her husband James Matthews, 42, are devoted to their dogs, who they take out shooting.
The injured lab has belonged to James since his bachelor days.

So, let me get this right.  The photos of her with the dog were today, 26 May

Pippa Middleton steps out in a rare spotting during a dog walk on Saturday (May 26) in the Chelsea neighborhood of London, England.

Then we get that orangina and rat face are photographed walking in Paris  -  26 May.


Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews were spotted strolling through a park in Paris on Saturday.    -  MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 20:17, 26 May 2018


Have the lost the plot or what.  Both articles have so many photos, all very similar, definitely speed dial, but they should get their dates straight.

It's possible that both were taken today, they most likely took the Eurostar Ldn - Prs and that's very quick.

In any case, I give the dm greater accuracy, they are Ldn based and on speed dial for Pip, also the pics were taken on a Saturday in Paris, James works and seems again more likely that he'd be off on a Saturday, besides JJared doesn't really have a clue, calling it a rare sighting, the text originally said she's pregnant with her 2nd and similar silly (clueless) mistakes.

PS Given the pictures, there were at the Tuileries gardens, just in front of the Louvre.

She’s not  afraid of I showing off her body. Remember when she wore that white bikini when they were on holiday with Bill? So she not shy. (A lot of celebrities do this though. Anything to appear in the papers or get folks talking about to them).

But they (the Medds) do want to appear grand and high society. Like they were born to this life. So on that level, I think it would bother her.



Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Val on May 27, 2018, 09:36:05 pm
The trouble is neither Pippa or the Midds could ever look high society as everyone knows where they have come from despite their trying to hide it.  Backgrounds aren’t important if people behave differently to the social climbing medds who seem to be detested  by most.

Pippa Middleton confirms pregnancy and reveals she was lucky not to suffer from morning sickness like sister Kate
The star is currently in her second trimester

Pippa Middleton has finally confirmed she is expecting her first child with her husband of one year, James Matthews. The Duchess of Cambridge's sister opened up about her exciting news in her Waitrose magazine column, confessing that she had been lucky not to feel any morning sickness, unlike her sister Kate. Writing about the first three months, the fitness columnist said: "I was lucky to pass the 12 week scan without suffering from morning sickness. That meant I was able to carry on as normal".

Pippa's sister, The Duchess of Cambridge, suffered from severe morning sickness, hyperemesis gravidarum, in all her pregnancies, meaning she had to be away from royal duties for several months.

Mum-to-be Pippa, 34, who is known for her love of sport, also opened up about challenges she faces adjusting her exercise regime to be as healthy as possible during the exciting nine months.

Writing about the moment she learned she was expecting, Pippa says: "When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant I realised I needed to adjust my 4 to 5-day-a-week routine." She also reveals that she kept her pregnancy a secret from her gym instructor until the "riskier months" were over.

[...]

https://www.hellomagazine.com/healthandbeauty/mother-and-baby/2018060749284/pippa-middleton-confirms-pregnancy-talks-morning-sickness/

.... neither did Kate (have HG or "severe morning sickness").
"finally confirmed", Jeez it's like saying "Will finally confirmed he's becoming bald". Stating the bloody obvious.

Easy to be fit when this one can go to the gym full time (4-5x per week!!!) and also well done you for not telling your instructor you're pregnant during the most crucial time, being fit is obviously more important than doing the best for the baby.
I'd bet good money that Kate also excersizes 4-5x per week.

Pregnant Pippa Middleton rocks a VERY glamorous take on maternity wear in a jumpsuit and statement earrings to pay tribute to Paralympians who competed at the Winter Games
The younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, who publicly acknowledged her pregnancy for the first time less than a fortnight ago following months of speculation, glowed in a non-maternity jumpsuit by Tephi London and playful Bimba y Lola earrings at Guildhall on Thursday.
The 34-year-old, who is expecting her first child with her husband of a year, hedge fund manager James Matthews, had joined guests to honour Paralympians who took part in the Winter Games in South Korea.
Pippa attended in her role as a patron of Disability Snowsport UK, and told how she had been 'profoundly moved' by the people she had met through working with the charity.

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Pregnant Pippa Middleton looks blooming as she steps out in London with £1,000 leather bag
The Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnant sister Pippa Middleton looked blooming when she stepped out in London yesterday.
The 34-year-old, whose first child with financier husband James Matthews, 42, is due in October, showed off her burgeoning bump in a pretty pink sundress accessorised with a £1,115 Dee Ocleppo fringed leather bag and gladiator sandals.
Her solo outing comes just two weeks after revealing that, unlike her sister, who had severe morning sickness with all her pregnancies, she’d endured no such discomfort.
‘I’ve noticed my body change and weight increase — but through effective exercise and sports I feel that it’s being strengthened to support a healthy pregnancy, birth and recovery,’ she said.
‘I stopped running — not because I read it was unsafe, just because I rather liked the idea of giving my body (and growing baby) a rest from pavement pounding.’

While the Duchess of Cambridge was a fan of modest coat dresses, jewel-toned shifts, and pantyhose during her most recent pregnancy with Prince Louis, Pippa's style is much more relaxed. (Given that she's a private citizen and her sister is married to the the future King of England, it only makes sense.)

Earlier today, for example, Pippa was spotted in the Chelsea neighborhood of London today wearing a breezy pink spaghetti-strap design from J.Crew."

I do prefer Pippa is more ways than not when it comes to comparison to Kate. I usually do prefer Kate's style to hers though - but when it comes to her maternity wear I have to say I think Pippa's is much better. She seems more concerned with comfort and practicality than looking like some done up doll which seemed to be Kate's priority.

The pipster’s hubby James allegedly posts under JRM007 in the DM to indignantly defend her if criticised.  Not exactly an 007 is he!?

The father’s alleged *nasty* court case should be heard soon unless of course QE has intervened  in that too as she did with Pips friends’ gun toting episode in France and PA’s alleged *nasty* connections.

https://www.harpersbazaar.com/celebrity/latest/a21990239/pippa-middleton-pregnant-playing-tennis/

"Pregnancy hasn't kept Pippa Middleton off the tennis court. In a new fitness article for Waitrose Weekend, the athletic mom-to-be opens up about how she continues to play the sport while expecting. She also reveals that she's in her second trimester of pregnancy.

"I've been a tennis fan since childhood, as player and spectator, and have been keen to continue playing safely throughout pregnancy," Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge's sister, writes in the piece."


I am glad more information is coming out that pregnant women (aside from ones that have high risk pregnancies and other conditions, obviously) can safely be active while carrying. Not that I was put on this earth for athletics - but I am an active person and would hope to continue being so to some degree if I ever have kids.

My first response to the lovely Midd women's shoes was that they were saying a subtle message.  They do not care if QE doesn't want wedges worn in her presence.  they are feeling pretty good right now with Sparkels around so they will wear what they want.

Besides these original social climbers think they are all stylish and gorgeous.

Bumping along nicely! Pregnant Pippa Middleton is spotted picking up a hat in London - just days before Prince Louis' christening

She is preparing to welcome her first child with financier husband James Matthews later this year.

But there was no rest for Pippa Middleton this week as the expectant mother was spotted running errands in Chelsea for the second day in a row.

The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister, 34, popped into highbrow milliner Jane Taylor to pick up a hat, most probably for her nephew Prince Louis' christening at next week.

Pippa and husband James Matthews are expected to join royals including the Queen, Prince Harry and Meghan at the ceremony at St. James' Palace in London on Monday.

Pregnant Pippa Middleton Just Paired a Summery Yellow Dress with Sparkly Sneakers

Since it was revealed that Pippa is expecting her first child with her husband, James Matthews, the Duchess of Cambridge's sister has been sporting the most flawless maternity looks. Fresh from wearing the prettiest white eyelet dress by Anna Mason, to watch the tennis at Wimbledon, Pippa has now been spotted wearing a gorgeous yellow sundress.

Pippa wore the super summery dress, which features triangle cutouts, while running errands this week. She accessorized the look with a woven crossbody bag and sparkly sneakers. Basically, you're going to want to replicate her look immediately:

I don't think Kate is radiant either. She turns on the hyena grin again. The astroturfers are not going out as much to say Charlotte looks like the Queen, she now seems to have changed appearance as she gets older looking more like a Middleton. Carole's and Pippa's mini me. I wish Kate would have Charlotte's hair trimmed, it just sort of hangs on the child.

Those shoes look dreadful, why do all the medd women wear them, they are a blot on the landscape.  Not exactly fashionable either are they.  Probably thumbing their noses at HM because she does not like those rope wedges.  I think they forget they are no longer teenagers, although I think viper council caro should realise at 60+ you can look modern without making yourself look stupd, but obviously not, still thinking she is a teenager.   :thumbsdown:

Questions being asked everywhere as to what happened to the court case of pippa’s father in law re the alleged *nasty* allegations.   Probably been quashed by QE like all the other misdemeanours of family and relatives.  The Monarchy really has to go.

Pippa’s pre-natal fitness regime continues! Now Kate’s pregnant younger sister reveals she’s turned to SWIMMING to help combat swelling during the heatwave

    Pippa, 34, explained how she has found swimming enjoyable while pregnant
    She described how it was comforting to know that it was 'safe' form of exercise
    Comes after she revealed Serena Williams inspired her to carry on playing tennis

^^ But Pippa's father-in-law has nothing to do with the RF. Why would they make any efforts to help him, the father-in-law of Pippa who is the sister of Kate, who the RF allegedly does not even like and apparently has so many serious secrets about?
Also, don't these cases usually lie low for a while during the investigation process?

An alleged 'phone call' from the Queen to Paris quashed the gun toting charges of Pippa and her z list Eurotrash friends.  FIL is close enough  to cause embarrassment in the RF's book.  Those close also say anything to do with paedophillia risks a backlash and resurrection of PC's very close friendship with Jimmy Saville and  Prince Andrews connections to *nasty* friends.

If anyone else is going to be with Pip besides James, then I'd say her mother will be there with her in the room.

Waity can't supposedly attend weddings for "security" reasons (bs), but she can just plop into a hospital when her sister gives birth? Nope. Though I bet she could, "security" is over-used as excuse.

Not putting her feet up just yet! Pregnant Pippa Middleton keeps her cool in a floral summer dress as she whizzes around London on her bike after a trip to the gym
But sporty Pippa Middleton seemed untroubled by the soaring temperatures today as she headed out on her bike in a breezy summer dress after a workout at her gym.
The mother-to-be, 34, looked stylish in a blue shirt dress with pretty floral embroidery as she left the exclusive KX gym in Kensington, West London.
With safety in mind, the mother-to-be donned her helmet before wheeling her bike into the road and setting off after her workout.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6040317/Pregnant-Pippa-Middleton-whizzes-London-bike.html
What’s with these photo ops she’s been setting up. Mega phot agency is one to call when a celebrity needs press attention. It looks dangerous for her to be on a bike with a dress on. What happened to her car? What’s up with her father in law’s sex scandal?

Rumour out that QE has 'intervened' again re Pippa's FIL sex scandal but could be just a rumour.
We shall soon see as it was supposed to be in Court around now or a little sooner.  The public furious at the way QE intervenes and quashes things which other people would be sent to prison for.  All contributing to the fast demise of the Monarchy.

Mum on the move! Pregnant Pippa Middleton displays her growing baby bump as she checks in at the gym - after revealing she's keeping up her fitness regime
But it seems Pippa Middleton is sticking to her rigorous exercise regime after she was spotted visiting her local gym on Friday.
The sporty younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge was glowing as she left Define Fitness Studio in Fitzrovia, which charges upwards of £28 per class.
According to onlookers, the author and socialite appeared to have enjoyed a one-to-one training session with founder Ashley Verma, a former Broadway dancer.

I believe that Pippa’s daily jaunts out is a distraction from the trial or any updates as to what’s going on.
I think it would’ve been wise to let hangers on and tacky in-laws such as the Midds that the royal family won’t intervene on any scandal or criminal activities that they’re caught up in. Now they’re surrounded by these types of people who demand and expect help with their situations.

Pregnant Pippa Middleton is pictured with her father-in-law for the first time since he was accused of violent physical attack
Pippa Middleton has been pictured with her father-in-law for the first time since he was accused of violent physical attack.
The Duchess of Cambridge's sister joined David Matthews, 74, for tea with her husband James and mother-in-law Jane in West London.
Pippa, 34, was seen carrying tea for the get-together last week more than four months after it emerged Mr Matthews was being investigated by French authorities over the allegations, which he strongly denies.
Pippa, who is believed to be due with her first child in October, wore a flowery blue dress over her baby bump while her father-in-law wore jeans, trainers and a light blue shirt to the family reunion.
Pippa attended the West London catch-up with her husband James, 42, who sat on her side of the table for tea.
David Matthews was joined at the family reunion by his wife Jane, 71, who wore an all-black outfit with trainers.
Pippa and Jane brought the hot drinks to the table, each carrying two mugs from a matching set for the family to enjoy. 
Mr Matthews was accused of two offences in the late 1990s, one in Paris and one on the island of St Barts where the millionaire owned a hotel.
The woman at the centre of the claims contacted police last year and initially told officers Mr Matthews had acted inappropriately towards her when she was 15.
The Matthews family said at the time of the Paris probe: 'David Matthews categorically denies the allegation and unequivocally contests the untrue and scandalous accusation.' 
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6053605/Pregnant-Pippa-Middleton-pictured-father-law-time-violent physical attack-claim.html
This happened last week. Funny how Pippa's not called out for staging photo ops like this one. I guess nothing further will happen now to David as the article didn't say anything about an upcoming trial, just that he was accussed of the crimes.

It reminds me of a classic, but funny, joke.  We can use a joke on Monday and at these vapid people's expense, right?

A man was dating three women but was considering getting married.

He gave each one $10,000 to see what they would do with the money.

The first woman put $5k in the bank and spent the rest on useless junk.

The second woman put all of the $10k in the bank.

The third spent all of the $10k on herself.

The man's friend asked, "Well?  Which one are you going to marry."

The man answered, "Are you crazy?  The one with the biggest breasts, of course."

If Pippa and James can afford it and it doesn't come out don the taxpayer's pocket, who cares?  I think they want a mega-nursery in this renovation.

Plus, they give to charity, are not bloated, self-important charities themselves (as the BRF is), so I have no problem with them.

I guess the "average" worker eking out a living supporting a family may not think much of the $$$$$ spent by Pippa and James.

Carole's expectations for all her children have been carried out (with exception of James M. Who might find an heiress or an aristo). I t hink there is a need for some to be related to royalty. James and Pippa can  brag that their children will be "related" to royalty.

IMO Pippa is probably flattered at the daily photographs of her she seems well aware of cameras.

If James' money is earned by working for a living, it is nobody's business how he spends it.  Plus, again, he/they are very generous to charities which is how it's supposed to work.  I have much more of a problem with people spending money they never earned and on a grand scale at that.  And then?  Expect special privileges and deference.  Ha!

No.  James and Pippa have every right to enjoy their lives without shame.  Can't say the same for her sister.

I wonder if Pippa would have gotten quite so wealthy a match had Kate not married William. I think that wealthy people often like to be related to royals as in-laws. Gives them certain perks.

I hope she and James are happy but don't flaunt the wealth too much.

^That's true.  You rarely meet millionaires in coach.

But, still, James took his family's wealth, position and connections and worked up.  From thewealthrecord.com:

Quote
Net Worth & Earnings
He hails from a very wealthy family which enrolled him at the Uppingham School that demands tuition fees of $42,000 per year.

He owns a private jet which costs about $4 million will also inherit the 10,000 acres Glen Affric estate. His net worth is estimated to be $2.6 billion, taking into account all the sources as mentioned above.

James was born into a very wealthy family and was raised with all the luxury he needed. But yet, he opted to build his own business rather than enjoying the wealth saved by his parents. He proved himself as a successful racer and strives hard to uplift his firm which is a very important quality that we want our readers to take back with them.

So, if they were gonna show off, they would have by now.  They really haven't.  Those who genuinely work for their wealth and are generous to others are, rarely, show-offs.  Pippa actually did better than her sister.  Both in personal wealth and freedom to pursue whatever she would like without a microscope up her behind.

I think Pippa is a little wistful and slightly bitter that she didn't manage to land Percy and become a future Duchess of Northumberland; given how she did try to land a man in university, it's clear that she just wanted to get married and be taken care of at a young age and pursue her interests in life on her husband's money. Regrettably for her, it ended up being different than Kate, mainly since the men in Pippa's life didn't feel obligated to be a perfect angel to the world's media and they didn't think they owed Pippa anything. Pippa experienced the realities that Kate avoided since Kate landed a man who felt he HAD to be a perfect Prince Charming and William had MAJOR issues with his family that were never worked on before he ended up going to Scotland.

Pippa's men on the other hand were tight with their families, had clear minds and a clear direction in life that they wanted to pursue, and were significantly more strong when she likely tried to wheedle and ring out of them while she was in bed with them. Plus, Percy and JJ Jardine were career oriented and wanted to enjoy life as well as build something of their own in their own right. They didn't want to get married and certainly, didn't want to marry Pippa so she would be able to freeload off of them for life. For them, marriage is pursued in their thirties, not their post-graduate twenties. Pippa miscalculated and made the mistake of trying to bond in her uni years. I do wonder if Pippa had already made a reputation for herself among the men and student body for being a user.

I do not think that Pippa is content, if she were, she wouldn't look so wary of the press (and by default, the public). She'll never stop trying to make herself happen and I am certain that she will continue to try to remain tight with the upper crust, but even her husband's money and lifestyle is too new for most of the families. I don't think she is having luck getting her pointless brother on his feet and hooked up with someone wealthy and connected, much less titled. Even Kate with her status couldn't swing someone ancient for her sister and I don't think Pippa's husband can really 'make' something happen for the Duke of Boomf with a poshy female. Women in that set are a lot more intelligent about shysters like the Middletons and I am certain that James is more likely to get a restraining order, not an acceptance.

Pippa is probably seething that she isn't in demand among the set she tried so hard to marry into and I am certain that she is having problems accepting the mediocrity of her life. Her mother Carole likely isn't as effusive towards Pippa's husband and I think Pippa is tired of being treated as second rate.

I think Pippa would have been worse and I am glad she lost her contract. She really truly blew a chance to make a real literary career for herself and she could have done much better for herself. Laughing off the loss of a contract didn't make her look hip or like someone who could afford to laugh it off, she looked utterly brainless. She blew Oprah and Ellen off in favor of partying at the Hamptons and then made a huge Charlie-Foxtrot by trying to drag the palace into all of it, as if she were obligated to the palace in some way.

She kept trying to make the palace take her on their hands and the entire time, the palace was constantly telling her (via the press) that they didn't have any obligation to tell her how to live her life. That has been the main root of her unhappiness in life, her determination to make someone take care of her and direct her life. Now she has a life as a cared for pampered housewife, but she is not at all happy about it since for some reason, she YEARNS to have someone restrict her life, to control her. For the life of me, I have no idea why on earth she idealizes or wants the BRF or some high ranking aristocratic husband to dominate her.

Post by: HRHOlya on August 30, 2018, 06:30:39 pm
I'm not entirely sure Pippa "blew" her literary contract in that sense.. From what I remember, she had 2 major problems:

1. the fact that she's a Midd and people had the book panned before it hit the shelves
2. her writing (or rather the tips) was a bit.. asinine..

Some said they liked that she included the obvious tips, because sometimes when you host or prepare you do forget the simple stuff (true enough), but well n°2 pared with n°1 could only end in disaster.
The book should have also been marketed towards people in their 20s or so, i.e. "beginners" in the "party planning" area, as the tips were so simple, that is the audience she should have strived for.

The first step she should have done was go to a writing course to prep (in that sense she did blow her chance) and also go to catering cookery class (she did do that, but for personal reasons, she should have visited more/ again for professional reasons too).

And maybe use a pseudonym, which wouldn't have been entirely necessary had she prepped her writing skills and knowledge better & had the marketing been better..

So imo my conclusion is that her writing career went nowhere because of her lack of prep and because people had had it with the Midds and she was "punished" for it with a great lack of sales and wrong marketing from the side of her publisher. She should have also taken smaller steps, make her column better and a hit and then move onto a whole book... :dontknow:

Articles said James had held a torch for Pip for years, I don't know if that was Midd PR or the truth, but if the truth then I think she was "destined" to end up with him. He waited for her no matter what and the men she was after didn't want her... Scarole did well to put her daughters in the right circles, so I think they would have married well either way (i.e. rich men with maybe a title).

Pip for sure got a better deal than Waity, all the riches, none of the responsibility and fear of offending the plebs with a show of riches.

Pippa def has hustle compared to Kate. I also think she'd have been better in Waity's shoes, but alas...


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 30, 2018, 07:01:25 pm
I do think that Pippa should have been involved more with the book's marketing and should have spent less time partying and more time with her publisher. If she had stopped trying to be so snooty and high toned I believe the book would have sold better and would have had more appeal. She and her brother are so determined to be posh, but thing is, that she and her brother don't realize that million dollar deals are in fact not made via climbing, but building. It's like trying to become CEO of Microsoft with a degree, but no real practical experience in any aspect of being employed. Even connections don't do that much.

Pippa could have a great career as a writer appealing to the mainstream market and enjoying a nice career as a contributor to television talk shows and other such chances, but she made the cardinal mistake women make and that is (and always will be) to throw it all away to chase a man, in her case, a class of man (titled and monied) and therefore ended up making a complete and utter fool of herself.

Certainly, she is with a man she might have been destined with, but it is telling that she agreed only after she ended up getting rejected by all those titles. No sane mother would want her son to be considered 'settling' and I am certain that Pippa isn't what Mrs. Matthews had in mind for her son.

She wasn't taking any of it seriously; she was so busy posturing as an airy socialite that she refused to make the most of the opportunity sent to her. She had big bucks and a few months seclusion living in a small cottage in the shires would have likely produced a great book and basically given her time to really recharge. Instead she passed herself around to men and never got anywhere, at least not as high up as she wanted. I wonder how different things would be if she had in fact ended up being a more work oriented person; the ideas her mother put into her head just led to trouble and rejection for her.

She really didn't know how to handle her new fame and hype; she spiraled out of control very fast and was clearly trying to create a life of being a freewheeling carefree in demand socialite. Then those ridiculous documentaries that hyped her up and made it sound like she was raised by nannies in the shires and had a family name to uphold and had all sorts of expectations that she would marry well and what got to me is this quote:"raised to believe that they would marry very well and these kinds of things would hurt their potential future prospects." As if we were in Jane Austen times where a woman was only as marriageable as her reputation.

I get testy about how she put up a front of being able to avoid having to make some kind of actual living, as if a career is a sign of being lower class. I do not believe that Carole loaded up Pippa's mind with the belief that she was going to marry a Lord something or other as a natural matter of course, so there was no need for her to bother working. I do think that the 2012 scandal was a wake-up call for her and the fact that no French aristo spoke out on her behalf during that time is telling. She really burned a lot of bridges during that time and I do wonder how she handled being played by Nico for that promotion and then getting dumped.

^ Indeed. Pippa's done very well for herself.

Things may not have gone how she planned them, but she's been all the luckier for it, as things have turnt out pretty great for her.

Titles go a loooong way in the UK and I think many people don't realize how far they go (as in what kind of doors are opened), but really, even with the most prestigious titles, the upkeep of those ancestral piles is a huge nightmare, incl the Percy pile. You get too many headaches really being bogged down with a title and the accompanying estates and all that needs to be taken care of. :o It's not really worth it..

All that glitters is not gold and all that...

PS Yeah Pipp & James needn't fear the possibility of a republic, if it were to happen they wouldn't be affected at all. In the end she has more security and freedom this way than any title could ever give.

While Pippa may be a happy woman for the rest of her life I don't think generally women should be brought up thinking they can get a rich man to "take care of them." Women can have their own careers and earn their own money. Basically that's the way the MIddletons have "bettered themselves" supporting their children so they can "marry up."

It’s the gullible men (or women) who fall for their “charms” that baffle me.

Pippa, tho, does have gumption and I do think the only child who is willing to get out there and take risks.  She’s failed, but at least tried.

While Pippa may be a happy woman for the rest of her life I don't think generally women should be brought up thinking they can get a rich man to "take care of them." "

^My sentiments exactly; the entire point of their value system that the Middletons project is that not only is it something desirable to do (to marry up), but something they're ENTITLED to do.

The entire theme of promoting Pippa is how Pippa deserves to get a title and wealth via a husband, not that it would be a blessing to have with love, but something that someone of Pippa's 'station' deserves. As if she has some right to a rich man and an ancestral title.

When William dropped Kate in 2007, the tabloid press was filled with moral outrage, as if William had committed some kind of sin in deciding to move on from his college sweetheart and that just because they dated, William was under some kind of obligation to continue the romance and eventually marry her. Columnists were blaming Charles, Camilla, the BRF, the aristocracy, everyone for the breakup instead of just accepting that in life people move on and basically change. The press acted like Kate was owed a wedding ring and had a right to marry him, even though it was clear that he wasn't that crazy about her and the relationship was already rocky. I mean really, people acted like Kate had been taken advantage of instead of just accepting that the relationship had run its course.

Then after the wedding, Loudon and Pippa break up and Loudon's family was blamed (inferring that the mother didn't think Pippa was good enough) and the blame game started up, but Loudon didn't take her back and so Pippa remained single. Then propaganda started up as to how Pippa deserved to marry Percy and become a future duchess (which only stopped after the Percy family allegedly took legal action) and then there was Nico who ended up breaking up with her. Yet the entire time, there was some kind of outrage in the tabloids that Pippa was being dumped, when in real life, no one owed her a commitment. Pippa herself didn't bring a title or great wealth of her own, but for some reason, there was that message that Pippa deserved a title and wealthy man. It's the message really that gets to me.

No one owed Pippa anything and I am surprised that no one (except on here) owed Pippa a title or lifestyle and no one owed her a ring.

Quote

I find that intriguing really; Carole built that business and pushed her kids to excel and now she's determinedly pushing them to be taken care of, not to have them build their own lives.

I do wonder if whether or not Pippa actually WANTS the life she has right now. She's probably dismissed her minder, might not be getting invites to any parties (or balls, or hunting trips, or much of anything) and she has a life, but she does not have the society life that she yearns so much for and for a while seemed in her grasp. She really seems to be determined to run from something, that only marriage can protect her from. I wonder if she actually ends up staying married. There's no way that she ever wanted her current husband and I do believe she wanted to basically live the life of a titled aristocrat and wanted to escape something about herself and her past and seemed to think that marrying up would solve all those problems.

From birth, happiness was never the goal instilled in these children.  Ambition, determination and the ultimate in financial and a socially connected lifestyle was.  And that has been achieved. 

For all their devilish faults, the Midds stand together and firm.  Pippa will get her title eventually when James becomes an Earl, is it?  She is beyond wealthy now and there is no way Ma Midds would allow a divorce to paint scandal anywhere near the throne.  They are selling the happy, united, committed and grounded family scenario.

They are also validated in the worthiness of reaching for this shallow existence because it worked.  Personally, I think that Pippa is quite content with her life and becoming a mother.  The child will receive all it is needed for creature comforts, domesticity is in place and somebody else pays the bills.  Pippa has gumption, much more so than her sister, but I don't think it bothers her to sit around and just luxuriate.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 11, 2018, 03:53:26 am
No, her husband is not in line to become an Earl, just one thing or another.

Quote
It turns out, however, that “laird” is more a description of land ownership rather than a royal title, according to Harper’s Bazaar and also Wikipedia. It’s a term applied to the owner of a Scottish estate, mostly by those who are living and working on it. In slightly more complex words, it’s a Scottish feudal barony as opposed to a peerage, the latter of which is either inherited or given by a monarch—think earl, baron and duke.

Moreover, David Matthews isn’t a traditional laird—he bought the land for commercial use, and renovated the entire property shortly after he bought it. It’s now made up of multiple luxurious accommodations, including a lavish hotel lodge that guests can rent out. As chic as that is, it’s possible he’ll eventually sell the land instead of handing it down to his son, as he might if it had been in the Matthews family for centuries.

Quote
If and when Matthews does inherit Glen Affric, Pippa could use the title if she truly prefers, but the practice of calling the laird’s wife “lady” disappeared after the 18th century, according to Royal Musings author Marlene Koenig. Wives now typically take on their husband’s full name, and sadly Mrs. James Matthews just doesn’t have the same ring to it as Lady of Glen Affric.

https://observer.com/2018/06/pippa-middleton-royal-title-glen-affric-james-matthews/

Essentially the 'title' is more of an honorific rather than something substantial and I do believe that Pippa hasn't 'made it' at all. It could end in the Matthews family if Pippa's husband decides to sell the estate and I do believe that this isn't going to shoot Pippa into the society she really wants. Royal society isn't as exclusive as the society of the nobility and I am certain that she would love Harry, but she wants the undemanding life of privilege she saw her classmates experience while she was at uni. She wants to live the life of undemanding privilege, but with a title and be able to look down on a full staff of servants and peasantry.

As for Pippa's wealth, she is not wealthy, her husband is. She isn't rich because her husband is rich, she is the marital equivalent of a kept woman.

^^I have no doubt that she's bored as all get out and that she wanted a title. She settled. Similar to Camilla, I believe she married the most monied man who was willing to get on with it. She won't bounce until she's been in it long enough to secure enough money and she can snag someone better.

It would be entertaining to see that happen; Pippa likely won't have that happen and I am certain that she's at a point where a kid and bought title is the best she's going to ever get. Maybe she might become a wealthier, more prominent man's mistress and try to unseat the wife, but I don't know if she's willing to risk her meal ticket. After all, there is no guarantee that a man will leave his wife for a sidepiece after all.

We live in interesting times...

Bought titles are easy to come by in the UK.  Some houses or estates are sold with a title like Lord of the Manor but are really meaningless.   Others can be bought from firms like Elite Titles but are usually bought by slightly odd people with huge inferiority complexes etc. There was an article a while back about a party given for those who recently bought titles.  They were a disparate rag  taggly bunch of nobodies.

Personally, I find it somewhat insulting to call wives "kept women".  Like it or not, she is married and, by law, is equally as wealthy as her husband.  She can buy, do, spend any amount available.  A true kept woman is one minus a marriage license living under the radar and always disposable.

There are no guarantees of course and divorce is always out there but with a child coming, she's set for the rest of her life without personally doing anything to accomplish it.  I don't like it either.  It's a bad example of self empowerment but that's what these people strive for and have achieved it.

She's not going to ever worry where her next meal is going to come from.  She is (as long as there's a monarchy) always going to be the aunt and sister and sister-in-law to the highest titles this country can offer.  That's a sweet setup because it provides the elite status without the heavy sacrifices.  Of all the players in this melodrama, she's in the best place.

She still wins.  Unless she really screws up, she's sitting pretty.  It continues to amaze me that such average or sub-average females have landed in such cushy positions. 

As for the weirdo title, does anyone really think the Midds care how they get recognized?  The signet wearing family that has zero royal blood?  They'll wear any title proudly even if they had to steal it.

Such sub-average women got so much just because William was blinded by the idea of normalcy the Middletons were pretending to adhere

I honestly don't see Pippa as a winner but she did meet  the family goal  to marry up and marry rich without doing anything really on one's own. They may not divorce but upper class aristos sometimes just lead separate lives after a time.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: YooperModerator on September 11, 2018, 03:09:48 pm
^Yes, "winner" is a subjective term.  If wealth and not having to do much to get it is your goal, or marrying for money, then she qualifies. 

In some fairness, she's not the first person to marry for security nor will she be the last.  She just happens to not be a burden to the taxpayer so I don't care as much nor am as outraged.  She is free to live her life as she chooses and she aimed towards comfort.  There's no crime in that.  It's not the finest example in the world but it's nothing new or shocking.

It is those who live a lavish lifestyle on the backs of the public purse for no other reason than bloodline or marriage to one of that group that turns me off.

Mom-to-Be Pippa Middleton Supports School for Children Who Are Deaf — See the Special Sculpture
Pippa Middleton is lending her support to a school for children who are deaf — with help from a unique critter.

Pippa, 35, who is expecting her first child next month, has teamed with a leading sculptor to create an exclusive limited-edition bronze figure of a bunny-human hybrid to help the school.

The 50 sculptures by Sophie Ryder, priced at $8,000 each, will raise money to build new elementary facilities at the Mary Hare School for Deaf Children in Newbury, which is not far from the Middleton family home in Bucklebury.

“I was trying to think of way to help support the appeal. I always liked the idea of using the hare — the animal of the hare — and I thought it was a great way to build up an art idea and finding someone like Sophie has helped it evolve,” Pippa explains in a new video.

Pippa Middleton and sculptor Sophie Ryder.
Mary Hare is a school for deaf children ages 11-18 from throughout the U.K. Student fees are covered by the Local Education Authority in the children’s respective communities.

Behind the scenes with Pippa Middleton, her blossoming baby bump and her trainer

She's about to join the mummy club, but that hasn't stopped Pippa Middleton from slowing down during pregnancy. The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister has been vocal about her fitness regime – keeping up her tennis and swimming as her due date nears. Her latest venture took her to the swanky barre studio of Define London where she spent the day with founder Ashley Verma, trainer to the stars including Jourdan Dunn, Poppy Delevingne and Georgina Chapman.

Opening up about their time together, Ashley, who opened her studio six months ago, said: "I had the pleasure of working with Pippa during her third trimester, it was super exciting. She walked in and she was super nice and very open. She was like, 'You're the new kid on the block, this is amazing, what do I need to do?' She wasn't 1000 per cent on certain barre-related things, so it was really great because she was completely open to it and lovely. She was taking it all in."

Pippa is still trying to make herself 'happen' and basically launch as some kind of full time old school socialite, when socializing was a full time 'job' among women of the upper class. She really is a half a dozen decades behind the times.

I think Pippa is the kind of person who goes through life like a bat out of Hades and then wonders WHY she gets into messes. Mark my words, that kid will have a nannied upbringing living life in the nursery and won't be raised to make any kind of living for themselves. I am surprised that a driven man like Matthews would marry someone with her value system. As for the media, the press is her meat and drink, press coverage makes her feel alive. Press reminds her that she exists since to the aristos that she keeps trying to push her way into keep shutting her out and treating her like she does not exist.

I wonder WHY they have that kind of self loathing; clearly the upper class will not let them forget where they come from, the upper class has never accepted them into their private lives (the non-clubbing life) and even Kate with her HRH is still unaccepted on a private basis. You would think that they would take real pride in their hardworking ancestry and make the most out of life, instead Pippa and Co. are so determined to know less about the world despite their very worldly experience. Kate is constantly trying to revirginize herself and be as matronly as possible while Pippa is determinedly being as silly as possible with her asinine writings.

I think Pippa is a nervous wreck about this; the press might not cover this excessively, but I am certain that behind closed doors she and her husband are not resting easy. Colleagues surely look at James askance and questioningly, while other members of Pippa's gym club might glance at her sideways.

As for HM, I believe that she's currently in a fog of denial, thinking that things will work out and everything will smooth over and the world will go back to being passively adoring of her and the BRF again and continue to fork over cash. HM clearly has no idea just how close to the abyss that she and her entire ancestral inheritance are.

I wonder if whether or not Pippa ever gets tired of the nonstop climbing; she has married wealthy, married a guy who will inherit a title, but she cannot seem to stop pushing herself via promotion even though the upper crust has made it clear they are tired of her attempts to push her way even more in. She should have given up a long time ago, but made the mistake of thinking that her marriage would be a launchpad to a higher level. I wonder how she will be made to quit her BS pushing. It's like she just can't stop herself even though she's gotten into that gun scandal, been a freakish addition to a decadent party where no decent person would go, flashed the planet with her breasts (however accidental), and thrown away dozens of career opportunities and chances to make a great life for herself. She threw that book contract into the gutter, determinedly telling everyone that the palace had to approve her moves (untrue), and laughed off her book's failure (big mistake and I am sure she lost her contract because of that laughter), and even the Percy family had to get their lawyer on her back to get her to back off of their son Earl Percy.

She was reared this way, and I think it's probably a default orientation to the world. It's a shame, she has so much that would engender contentment if she simply stepped out of the race for a minute.

I'm not mocking a pregnant woman, but wasn't in rainy in London today? The outfit hardly seems suitable for the weather. I don't like that fabric in that cut. It seems frowsy to me, and simply makes her look harder.

Pippa is very British, very classy and discreet. She would have been another asset to the RF if Harry had married her. But she must have a totally different IQ and the match was not possible.

Ma Midd would have been ecstatic if this happened. I don't know if she could have had the same control over Harry as she has over William. I don't think Pippa is a genius by any means. NOne of them are.

I find it ironic that the Lindo Wing is so posh; Diana delivered in the hospital for the reason that it was down to earth, practical, and had the best staff equipped to bring a child into the world. It wasn't posh (then) and it was hardly anything exclusive (as far as I know at this point in time). Now it's been turned into the very antithesis of the reason Diana went there in the first place.

I think Harry is in fact weak, but he relies on someone respecting his boundaries, something that Pippa and the Middletons do not recognize. I've dealt with a guy like Kate/Pippa and believe me, it is HARD to get them off your back. I do not think Pippa is better than Harry, she's just riding the Meg created wave of good PR.

I posted the comment because I found it suspicious. It sounds like something someone would say about themselves, or ask someone else to say on their behalf.  :sly: :sly:

Also, KF, I think for a long time The Portland was always considered the place to go if you wanted that sort of service and glitz around delivery. As I understand it, only since Diana has the Lindo changed and evolved into what it is.

Even now, the Portland is still noteworthy to the degree that there was a documentary series called Five Star Babies on the BBC a few years ago. I remember watching it.

That dm comment sounded like it came from Pippa!! Or some stan. Maybe Scarole?

Good point about women closer to birth getting hot fast.. Likely why she was dressed so thinly.

Kate has an underbite.

Seems so far we're all thinking it's going to be a boy!

I'm also thinking it'll be a boy.

Not happy or attractive pics.  She looks very hard and where is ma who is usually muscling in.
Those close say they are all concerned about the FIL's violent physical attack allegations.  Not a good thing to have hanging over everyone especially if pregnant.

I think Pimper will be fine. She's a tough old bird just like Ma.

^^ I agree. I don't think she has taken the time away from the voices in her ear to clear her head, assuming she even wants to. She was reared this way, and I think it's probably a default orientation to the world. It's a shame, she has so much that would engender contentment if she simply stepped out of the race for a minute.

I do think Pippa is unaware that she's gone as far as she could hope to and she should just quit. There's nothing at the top for her anyway; she'll have no friends, she'll have no real interesting things to talk about, and she clearly just keeps getting into one mess after another every time she muscles herself forward. She would be so much better off if she just gave it up and got an agent and tried to make some kind of career for herself.

I'm aware of the Portland's reputation now, but back in the past was it like the Lindo Wing, for posh people and not as glitzy? I think it became so glitzy over the years with the influx of footballer's wives going where posh people went...

Thanks HRHOlya. I jut couldn’t remember what it was called. It’s the opposite of overbite both Pippa and WK both have. It’s an underbite. But I didn’t realise they both had it until I saw the photos of PM.

Pippa Middleton is expected to give birth at the SAME hospital as her sister Kate – after being spotted visiting the £7,500-a-night Lindo Wing with her husband James
Pippa Middleton is expected to give birth in the same hospital as sister Kate - after being spotted visiting the £7,500-a-night Lindo Wing with husband James Matthews.

The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister, 35, is thought to be due to give birth to her first child later this month.

Pippa confirmed she was pregnant in her Waitrose column in June, where she admitted she was 'lucky' to not suffer from the same severe morning sickness condition as her sister.

The birth of her first child will come just six months after Kate, 36, welcomed her third child Prince Louis in April.

Pippa and husband James, 43, were spotted visiting the exclusive Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, which is close to their £17million Chelsea mansion, on Tuesday.

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to all three children at the hospital, posing outside the doors of the wing shortly after each birth. 

The hospital is known for going above and beyond to provide a premium service for its discerning clients.

Patients are each given a private room with their own en suite bathroom, as well as  satellite TV offering 'major international channels'. 

Gourmet food is also available via the wing's extensive menus, while new parents are also offered a wine list - including Champagne - to celebrate their new arrival.

A standard room at the Wing would cost parents £5,900, while a deluxe room starts at £6,275.

The price for a stay in one of the unit's suites - where Kate believe to have given birth - is available on request, but it thought to be closer to £7,500.   

Pippa appears to have taken her pregnancy in her stride, keeping up her fitness regime throughout.

I believe that the Express newspaper last week had an article saying that Waity will miss Eugenie's wedding to go and be by the side of Pippa whilst she gives birth. That'd make sense as both sisters don't get on with the Yorks and will have an excuse to skip the wedding.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on October 08, 2018, 05:16:15 pm
If Kate skips out on that wedding to be with her sister, all Hades will break loose. Kate is a member of the BRF and it is her DUTY to be there and BE supportive with a smile on her face and engage the people there and toast the bride. She has to be there, it is her duty and responsibility to make Eugenie's wedding day special. This isn't about her likings or her dislikings towards the Yorkies, this is about being decent as a member of family and being dutiful as a member of the BRF.

Post by: HRHOlya on October 08, 2018, 05:49:45 pm
I'll only believe that (K skipping Eug's wedding and/ or attending Pippa's sprog's birth) when I see it. Until then it's a big "no" from me on that story.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Demeter on October 08, 2018, 07:22:01 pm
The BRF cannot afford to allow Kate to skip, not if they want to avoid comparisons to the fractious Markle family.

Duty must come before desire.

Post by: HRHOlya on October 08, 2018, 07:36:29 pm
^ Indeed. And a show of "togetherness" and "family" at all cost.
Besides, they're not the Kartrashians to have the whole coven in the birth suite, that many people aren't even allowed in to begin with. Husband and mother (i.e. James & Carole) at most, and that's it.
Besides, the Cambs can't fart for "security" reasons, but shutdown the Lindo Wing because of Pip? I don't think so. Staff is busy there enough without catering to the Winds's needs.
I don't doubt that Pip & Kate are still close, but attending your sister's (or rather nephew's/ niece's) birth is a whole other matter. Being the first to see mum & child afterwards, sure, but being there for the birth is something else, regardless who you are.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on October 08, 2018, 07:54:48 pm
So now Kate is in a bind. If Pippa were more understanding, she would urge her sister to do her duty to the BRF and Pippa really should stop making a fuss about her impending birth. I just think Pippa needs to stop hyping her pregnancy, stop trying to make herself happen, and stop trying to turn every event in her life into an affair of state. As it is, she's married to a well connected wealthy financier, but that does not give her an excuse to distract her sister from her responsibilities. As for shutting down the Lindo Wing, someone needs to put a stop to that and stop coddling Pippa's airs and graces. It only reinforces her already delusional perspective of life.

If Kate shirks the wedding, it will create rumors of a rift and kind of spoil Eugenie's day, which Andrew and HM and Charles and William will have problems forgiving; if she shirks Pippa's delivery, then it'll create some wistful resentment and the 'normal' part of Kate will miss being able to be there for her sister.

Personally, I'd rather my hypothetical sister be angry at me over not meeting her absurd expectations versus letting down a nation and an institution I'd sworn to support.

So based on that, I say Kate'll do something to get the attention back on them, maybe leave the celebrations early?

As for shutting down the Lindo, I'll believe it if it happens.

Waity needs to suck it up, plaster a smile on her face and go to the wedding. She can leave the reception early or skip it altogether.

I can very well see a photo op on the steps of the Lindo Wing with Pimps, hubs, baby and Ma.


Just saw on Yahoo News that Pimper and JM were going into the hospital. So hopefully she will have baby Matthews before the wedding.

I think Kate should stay throughout the whole thing and skip out her sister's labor; there is no need for her to be there. I just hope Kate understands that her sister's birth won't require her being there and her duty should come first whether she likes it or not.

I'm not sure what Kate is supposed to be doing there. She's not her sister's labour partner. What support or advice could she give?

Also, the consultant (and midwife?) won't want the suite all cluttered up with people. No matter the surroundings, birth is birth  and the welfare of Pippa and baby have to be put first.

I wonder why Pippa thinks she can just continue to engage in a PR campaign that will somehow get her into the upper crust. Ironically, she thinks it will work since she saw it work for her sister and I do think she is confused because it isn't working for her. She tried to corner and bully Harry, then Percy, then after Loudon left her she tried to get him back, but that didn't work. Then the others broke it off with her and she still keeps making the same mistake each time. She has a husband now, but I wonder how long that will last. At some point he might tire of Pippa's climbing and break it off as well.

What on earth does she think she's going to find in society that she doesn't already have? An aristocratic lord of an ancestral estate would never let her forget her origins or her past and certainly, neither would his very large family. It's not like it'll make her into a new person with zero partying past and she would be expected to contribute to the running of the estate, plus upkeep. Each time she tries, she gets another smack-down and the Percy family literally had a lawyer make a public statement that there was no romance and I do wonder if she was threatened with legal action if she didn't back off of Earl Percy.

^ I think it's her own choices that are smacking her in the face more than she would ever let on. She is 35. That's not an advanced age, but it is a time frame in which most people are settling, or have done so. It is a stage, generally, of a maturity that enables people to take stock of their lives and get on with things. She needs to accept her reality. She has so much in her life that could be of great joy. Right now, she ought to be focusing on the advent of a child in her life and the multitude of changes they bring.

That she is, in effect, trying to parlay this baby into yet more wisteria work is so sad.

Also. IMHO, she has this vision of the aristocracy that is completely warped. She could be really happy, really contented, where she is, if only she took the time to realize that fact.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on October 10, 2018, 11:02:20 pm
I think Pippa made a lot of mistakes during her twenties, one big one being that she partied with the aristos thinking that she would somehow be accepted as one of them and after the party phase, she would get a proposal from one of them and be part of society. Much to her regret, after the party phase, they either settled into careers and are currently happily in them, or they are married to each other or someone else they met via work or travel, not in the nightclubs. She kept trying to embed herself, only it resulted in her completely degrading herself in the worst possible ways and getting into one round of trouble after another. Her brief foray into social climbing in France resulted in that gun scandal and none of those aristocrats spoke out for her benefit. She kept hassling Percy until the Peryc family lawyer came out and bluntly stated that there wasn't any romance between Pippa and Henry Percy and there never would be. Percy even closed up his nearby office to get away from her.

At some point, she is going to have to accept that this is her life and it is a good one. She has a wealthy husband and he will have a small title and she will indeed be secure as long as she does not screw up her marriage. I think though that she has to stop trying to be something she will never be accepted as being and she doesn't realize that in order to move up, you have to have something to stand on and building, not climbing is the way up. She has no reason to be at that level and her life is one of the best. The more she pushes though, the worst things will get and she might lose what she already has.

Well said Demeter!  Such has so much in her life right now that is good.  I can't read the dynamic between Pippa and James, her husband.  The impression I've gotten from what I read is that he loves her and waited a long time for her.  I don't have much of an impression about Pippa's feelings toward him, though.  They're about to have their first child and they can afford to live very nicely in an exciting city.  I hope she can focus on that for the foreseeable future!

Post by: gingerboy24 on October 12, 2018, 05:19:42 pm
^Have to agree to disagree on that one.  Very few women that are allegedly about to give birth can wear high heels, she must be one of the oddities if that is the case, either that or is not truly pregnant.  At that stage in pregnancy, and I am very slim, I could never have walked in high heels, and neither of my children were big babies.  Your sense of balance is off kilter, your stance is totally different, your back is killing you.  You need balance to walk in those high heels when not pregnant.  Or maybe she is superwoman and can do anything and everything, who knows with that lot  -  look at murky, she can barely walk in her high heels.

Post by: Demeter on October 12, 2018, 05:36:12 pm
But remember: Pippa is the most fit pregnant woman to ever carry a baby, ever ever. I read so in Waitrose.  lol She's not like us mere mortals who have swollen legs and ham hock feet and wobbly balance from six months on. She has a fitness routine to prevent it all.

I'd be afraid of falling and hurting myself or the baby, personally. 

I have to say, though, that green's a lovely shade.

^Have to agree to disagree on that one.  Very few women that are allegedly about to give birth can wear high heels, she must be one of the oddities if that is the case, either that or is not truly pregnant.  At that stage in pregnancy, and I am very slim, I could never have walked in high heels, and neither of my children were big babies.  Your sense of balance is off kilter, your stance is totally different, your back is killing you.  You need balance to walk in those high heels when not pregnant.  Or maybe she is superwoman and can do anything and everything, who knows with that lot  -  look at murky, she can barely walk in her high heels. 

I saw her do that walk on YouTube live and she was having great difficulty keeping her balance.  It’s not a fake pregnancy. Pippa looked stupid trying to wear the heels, but the dress looked lovely on her.

A friend of theirs said that the ‘pregnancy’ has been very much affected by the huge shadow hanging over the family regarding the FIL’s alleged violent physical attack accusations and the wait whilst it is being investigated harrowing.  The look on pimper’s face ie hard and unhappy definitely reflected this many times.

It's all predictable. People and other magazines will make a big fuss over the birth. Then the DM and other papers will show her "post baby figure" where she "lost the baby weight." SHe will walk out every day and tip off the press.

Post by: Kuei Fei on October 20, 2018, 12:47:13 am
I hope not; if not for her family, Kate wouldn't be where she is; she relied on her mother and father for money, her sister for companionship, and to an extent, her brother and uncle for money. If her mother had not indulged her climbing by financing her idle lifestyle, Kate would in fact not have that ring. If Pippa hadn't been so supportive, Kate would have slipped up and crashed.

While I'm no fan of Pippa, I think there was HUGE pressure in that family to make Kate the focus of landing that ring and a lot of attention was diverted from Pippa to Kate. Kate couldn't be seen as anything other than perfect and she got new jewels at her wedding, a royal prince, and her family went all out to support her. Pippa didn't get new jewels, didn't get a prince, and didn't get as much attention.

Lastly, during her pregnancy, Carole hasn't been as involved and I think Kate is Carole's favorite since Kate landed the prince and Carole lives the high life as a result. If Kate starts going all holy on her own family, that might in fact be the last straw for Pippa. As much as I dislike Pippa on principle because of her values, I do know that it must hurt Pippa, always being second best. Pippa will not get an "HRH," will not get children mentioned in the history books, will not be first with her mother.

Kate can't just snub her sister's children, her new nephew.

Post by: CathyJane on October 20, 2018, 02:35:09 am
I don't know but I doubt if Pimper has ever been Ma's favorite. A lot of parents pin all their hopes and delusions on their first born, so I imagine Waity has always been the favorite. Plus Waity is (allegedly) Willy's age so easier to infiltrate his life.

Pimper's bio father allegedly an Asian businessman who also fled so may be a little of that in that she isn't the favourite daughter.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on October 20, 2018, 12:08:57 pm
I think that might not be true, but still, I think Pippa's antics were her acting out her hurt from always being placed second. I do think Pippa's climbing is a way, an attempt to get her mother's approval and love and I believe Carole will still never really give it since Kate topped Pippa in every way. I also think Pippa has been having the hardest time possible in regards to lunching her brother since trying to market a son is different than trying to market a daughter. So Pippa loses on both sides. She can't force someone to date/marry her brother and clearly her new husband isn't letting her put on pretensions (like posing on the steps of the Lindo Wing) and she has either settled down at last or is in fact being controlled by her husband's nature.

Everything new, routine to be found, feeding times erratic maybe, who knows.  Their child, they have to pay for everything for it, not the taxpayer.  The only think I would say it that they obviously phoned someone in the media to come and take the photos.  Doubt anyone hanging around to photograph them, and nobody would know they were taking junior out if they had not been informed.  They both appear to love the press coverage.  Let´s face it, none of them are royal, and council cath only by marriage, the public are basically not interested in them, hence speed dialling the media to say they are going out with junior in whatever area.  Fame monger, but that is down to her, and the press encourage it.

Probably; it's just being withheld to go along with their airs of being royalty.

Ya Pippa definetley has it easier and you can't put a price on freedom.

I do not think so; she has a husband and kid, but she can lose it all one day. She's only as secure as she is of use to her husband; her climbing hasn't stopped all that much and it is clear that her chore of getting her brother settled hasn't worked. The best she's been able to do is basically end up getting him a job as a tour guide on the estate of her husband's family and that might not last long at all. That isn't going to ensure her security if her husband loses interest.

I'm sure Carole expects her daughter to provide help, but Kate can't and William clearly can't force an arranged marriage and so it's a stuck mess. Pippa hasn't been able to use her husband's connections to introduce James to someone willing to support his shiftless backside and these days no one is under any illusions about that family.

Clearly Pippa isn't as free as we think; being supported by a man doesn't mean you are free and she is still clearly struggling to be accepted by the nobility.

Post by: Kuei Fei on October 23, 2018, 10:38:14 pm
Neither will ever be welcomed and neither will ever get anything other than a restraining order against them; Pippa has experienced the Percy family literally having to take legal action against the constant speculation and since then Pippa was only around Percy at the time of her wedding. Pippa tried in France, but got dragged into that gun scandal and ended up cut out from the aristos; none of them spoke up on her behalf and left her to hang while hiding out at their estates.

I sometimes wonder if that was a wake-up call for her to realize that she wasn't one of them and never would be. I mean really, they left her drifting and facing criminal charges. If the police had decided to prosecute, if she had been brought to trial, none of the aristos would have protected her rep and never would have helped her. I do wonder if she might in fact end up deciding to become used to the reality that there are some boundaries that just can't be crossed.

Those types, to them, uni is just a brief transitory period where they go, learn what they need in order to refine their rudimentary knowledge and then after a brief spell of partying and jet setting, decide to start settling into the post graduate life that they've either had mapped out or decided to map out for themselves. Pippa made the mistake of thinking that after just four short years, she would be able to integrate herself via the degree programs and bedroom and nightclubs. However, the reality is quite different and for them, one of them really want to change their set or change their habits or take care of someone who has nothing to their name.

William and Harry were easy marks since due to PR, neither wanted to run the risk of being accused of being snobs or out of touch and so in a perverse way, it left them unprepared to handle women like Kate and Meg. However, Pippa was running headlong against people who have been raised very differently and didn't like the idea that they were under some kind of obligation to her just because she either dated them/slept with them or that they went to the same school. She did get to go to castle parties, but in their view, her presence was only temporary and she was invited since she lived with them and out of politeness she was invited.

However, after graduation things changed and she made the mistake of thinking that she was one of them and I think she struggled hard to understand that she wasn't just going to be scooped up and coddled. No aristo was going to just let her in because they went to the same school and no aristocratic father/mother was going to just let her walk in and start freeloading off of their son/family fortune for life. It doesn't work that way and clearly she didn't get the memo that no one owed her anything. Instead of backing off and living her own life, she chose instead to just latch on hoping to be accepted in and married by a title. It just didn't happen.

Then after her 'debut' on the red carpet, she started getting out of control. Instead of landing Harry, she lost Loudon and her campaign of shame to win him back didn't work and she lost Harry and lost Loudon being left stranded. It's like she refused to see that she wasn't owed anything from any of them and just kept pushing. Now given where she is, hse has her man, but she isn't secure. If she fails to get him new business or her family becomes too much of a nuisance, she'll be out on her arse. I do not think she has any real freedom and I don't think her life is something that should EVER be envied.

They might do the same as Vogue & Spencer and have a Hello spread, about 2-4 weeks after birth, which also then "reveals" the name. We might not see a christening, Pippa has been suprisingly "private" since marrying. But I do expect that the name will come out at some point.

According to those close Pippa took on board comments about the OTT Christening of Char and how it was ridiculed round the world and likened to something out of Mary Poppins, all staged by Ma of course.

According to those close, Pippa is very aware of the pending investigation in to pa Matthews alleged violent physical attack and abuse case and doesn't want to draw attention to herself as it always comes up.

Could be both, but her husband might in fact not want a showy christening and wants to keep it simple; I don't think Pippa has much by the way of leverage against her husband's wishes. He makes the money and pays the bills and so his word is sacrosanct. Could be her husband isn't standing for her pretensions.

^Exactly; I always initially thought that Pippa's wedding was her social swan song, not a launch/debut for herself. Her husband is surely indulgent, but I think he's like a lot of conservative businessmen who doesn't want himself all over the press unless it is for a legitimate reason. So instead of an engagement photo-call, it was a simple announcement; instead of posing on the steps of the hospital post-birth, he ordered her to just get into the car and get on with things. I also am not sure if he's a doormat, since he might make it clear now and then that she's not the one working and paying the bills. Throw in the fact that she hasn't been able to milk him to support her cake smutty brother, he might in fact not be the indulgent doormat that William is. I think the main difference is, that William doesn't have to make a genuine living and clearly Pippa's husband isn't interested in catering to Pippa's notions of grandeur. It says a lot that Pippa isn't jet setting around or going on shopping sprees to Bond Street like it was initially hyped.

At this point I think any elaborate christening will be happening behind closed doors; I do not think any kind of major 'event' is going to come of this and I do think it's anticlimactic. If they're trying to build hype, it isn't working. I do not believe the DM will be able to convince anyone to get worked up over it and it could be that her husband put the kibosh on a splashy magazine spread and promotional campaign.

TALK OF THE TOWN: Pippa who? Tennis fan snaps Roger Federer – but ignores Middleton clan
But Pippa Middleton very much faded into the background while enjoying a night out with tennis superstar Roger Federer.

The pair dined at Italian restaurant Il Trillo with Pippa’s husband James, her mother Carole and Roger’s wife Mirka.

But when the party emerged from the Chelsea restaurant, a fan nabbed the tennis superstar for a selfie – and seemingly had no idea who 35-year-old Pippa was.

Still, that didn’t stop the new mother from enjoying one of her first nights out since giving birth to a boy four weeks ago.

Pippa was all smiles, enjoying a laugh with 40-year-old Mirka as the group left the restaurant, which is just a stone’s throw from Pippa and James’s plush home.

Pippa is a huge tennis fan – she is a regular at the Wimbledon championships which 37-year-old Federer has won eight times.

The pair became friends after she interviewed him for Vanity Fair magazine.

I wonder if in fact Pippa even knows how to quit trying to get herself a position in society, that is, the position she hankers after. Sometimes after a while, a person loses the ability to stop and ends up crashing. Look how celebs can't seem to stop self destructing or self sabotaging and then they end up crashing and burning. I think Pippa is going to continue to push her way in (with her mother's full support and scheming) and it'll get to a point where she'll end up getting restraining orders.

^ That was a thought I too had, but that's not necessarily the case: isn't James Midds's middle name William? Sure Bill Windsor was already born when James Midd came along, but I suspect William is a name that is there somewhere in the Middleton/ Goldsmith family tree, and likely features in the Matthews family tree as well. Pretty classic and common, I'd wager a bet the name recurred on both sides of Pip's as well as James's families.

I have always thought it strange how the Middleton kids seem to have names that reflect the BRF.

Catherine *Elizabeth*

*Phillipa* *Charlotte* (Phillip and Charles)

James *William*

Had they had another son, I bet Henry or Harry would be in the name. And another girl, maybe Margaret.

Yep, I think Ma had her 'eyes on the prize' for a while. As noted above, interesting that she chose monarchs'/future monarchs' names for her kids rather than just regular posh names like Olivia or Hugo.

And Catherine, Elizabeth and Philippa are all names of past monarchs/consorts.

The name Arthur seemed unusual. Aside from Michael - definitely grandfather and on the Matthews site, I gather the names could have specific meaning in either of the families.

I don't think they relate to royalty unless they were making sure someone else wouldn't use the names (in my opinion).

Jesus Christ, when is this woman going to quit trying so much? The aristos are not going to accept her as one of their own and the aristos are not going to just let her push her way in. She has the ability to lead a flawless life and the more she pushes, the more she's going to get a negative reaction out of them. When the Percy family lawyer went into the fray, Pippa backed off and she should have accepted that as a RED FLAG that she wasn't going to 'happen' socially. She wasn't wanted by them and she should have settled down quietly a lot sooner. There's something about her that is unwilling to accept that she would never be part of that set and that the social life she had during uni didn't mean that she was welcome to continue at it and fact is, it's plain creepy how she tried to move a four year blip on her life's radar into something that entitled her to move into their non-uni lives post graduation. I mean really, creepy as heck all.

Thanks for correcting my foggy memory! You're right, of course. That's what I get for speed-posting on too little sleep, too much tea, and too much travel.  :sorry:

As for Pippa, I do wish she could simply be at peace. She deserves it, with everything going on in her sphere. Just relax, enjoy her baby, and be. Somehow, though, I think she's still got that voice in the back of her head that yearns to please her mother. I hope she will fight it, and simply be pleased with herself for whatever reasons feel more organic to her.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on November 14, 2018, 03:48:58 am
I think Pippa has been in a lot of pain over it. Her trying to get into the French aristo set resulted in that gun scandal and she was left exposed while the others fled to their family estates and kept quiet until things cooled down. The Percy clan sicced a lawyer on her and only that got her to back off.

Thing is, I do not pity her. I'm more than a little sure that she has been a complete snot to those around her and I am certain that she was more than happy to mistreat people. I remember reading about how she hired that handler and she was almost engaged to her boyfriend during the royal engagement, but she ran after Harry and Percy during the aftermath of the wedding and had the GALL to abuse her ex and his family after he got fed up with her BS and broke up with her.

She did more than a little damage to a lot of people around her and frankly she's no victim. She should be aware by now that the doors are shut in her face and so she has no business trying yet again by giving her children pretentious names and grooming them to get to the next social level. It'll only result in more trouble and rejection.

Post by: Kuei Fei on November 16, 2018, 12:27:33 am
Someone like Pippa, I don't think anything will ever be enough. I think she is craving some kind of status that she wants in her own right. She has a handsome husband with a son and is the sister of Queen Consort of Great Britain, but she wants the life of being able to have titles and vast money and the 80's life. I think she also seeks to be revriginized and made into some kind of 'proper lady' that will cure her mother's self loathing and seeks some kind of mythical land where everything will be okay and she will never be haunted by her past and liberated from that crazed ambition that infects her. I also think her mother is breathing down her neck to find someone for James (her brother) and get him a title and money. She got him a job, she did try to get him help for his ventures, but she couldn't help him succeed. I think Carole is still hassling Pippa to make some kind of miracle for James, but it just isn't happening.

This might be OT, but what on earth can Pippa do for James? It's not like she can set him up with some poor girl.

I think, in all honesty, Pippa wanted to be a celebrity wife, but you know, with a title she could, in some mythical way, lord over mere mortals. Never mind the fact that most men with titles have been raised to expect and want actual partners and women who work and will do something to contribute to the world rather than toss book contracts to the wind and blow people off.

I think she would have been happier as some kind of WAG.

This is how the Midds operate: Kate got the prince and Pippa got a book contract, the ability to plan the wedding and get press for that; then Pippa got invites and freebies and it is likely that Kate set Pippa up with a few well heeled men. Then go figure, Pippa blew it all on making a mess of her life. Either way, Pippa did help Kate along to get that ring and Kate paid her back through giving Pippa various opportunities. Now that Pippa has her ring and her money/perks/connections via her husband, Pippa is now required to help James get what he wants (money, perks, a wife he can leech off of) and I wager that Pippa has been struggling. Pippa did manage to get James investors for his dolt business, but that didn't pan out, so Pippa got her brother that job and now she's still tasked with finding him a wife.

Thing is, aristo men usually have their personal lives mapped out before uni and prefer to basically just go through uni and get out and reconnect with their family and go through a routine courtship and then get married. Pippa was never part of that pre-uni life and she might have roomed with them in uni, she might have gone to their castles and palaces, but she was never one of them before and therefore was not at all in any kind of running or consideration. For a lot of them, life doesn't end or begin after marriage, it is part of their life, which is much broader than Pippa would perhaps wish to be part of. Second, I'm certain that Pippa would have issues understanding that the family fortune isn't there to be spent on her family, on jet setting, or on anything like that. It's there to be added to and passed down.

If any footballer would have wanted her; she would compete with prettier, richer (in their own right or via their families), and far more educated and pleasing.

I really think it's horrible that Pippa, with all her athleticism, didn't think to build a career and fortune as an athlete who does sponsored marathons and other events. She would be famous in her own right and probably very wealthy and she would be even admired for her prowess. Instead she threw it all away on being a user and fundamentally very selfish woman. She never really needed a man to get wealth since as an athlete she could be both rich and famous.

That last paragraph, KF, sums up Pippa succinctly.  It's her fatal flaw, her hamartia. (A fatal flaw of a hero/ine which leads to their downfall).

I've said it before, but if she used half her energy that she used chasing a man to get a ring on her finger to pursue her own career, she'd be independently wealthy, respected and accepted in her own right.

And she wouldn't need to rely on a man and his whims to enjoy the lifestyle she lives now. Plus it would give her economic and therefore emotional freedom to enjoy her life. Why emotional freedom? If things didn't work out between her and her other half, she'd have the money to leave and live her life on her own terms. And she'd still get to keep all of the money she had honestly earned.

Instead she chased a title, lost it, (Percy family), then married James. She may well be happy, but I'm sure she'd be happier with an old title, not a recently purchased one.

Just my 2 cents' worth.

The Middleton’s Life Goal is very simple and 2/3 accomplished:  Get to a place where someone else pays for everything.

She’s done just fine if that’s your yardstick in life.  It’s a mistake to project what most people who are successful would want with how these people operate.

Not one child of Ma/Pa Midds has used their degree.  They all look outside for support.  Pippa may be the only member who has come closest to seeing a human being work for a living, really.  And she will never have to work a day of her own life.  That is true success to them.


Title: Re: Pippa: The Other Midd Girl 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on November 16, 2018, 04:19:10 pm
Yooper, given how the world has shown itself to work, she will never have to work unless her husband decides to end the marriage. Children have NEVER been a guarantor of marital security and each day/month/year Pippa lives will be one filled with uncertainty. Wives supported by their husbands are never secure, except in rare circumstances. Pippa is going to be only as good as she is useful to her husband in landing clients and gaining contracts for his business; I think she might not know this and her constant climbing will not help her marriage if she ignores her husband or gets herself in a compromising situation. She will have to watch her husband at every turn and hope he doesn't fall for a colleague or secretary or simply fall for someone he met on a business trip. She is always vulnerable.

These days, courts are not going to force (or be able to in some cases) a man to pay for lifetime alimony and if a man is clever enough, he can hide assets and argue that Pippa is still capable of learning new skills and earning a living using those skills. Lump settlements can be generous, but Pippa wants to live in a grand style and she has no way of leveraging the kid to get ample child support since men like her husband are smart about arranging a way to prevent her from freeloading off of the kid. I am also sure that if it came down to divorce, no one would take Pippa in to give her a place to live and I am certain her mother would disown Pippa for 'failing' to hold on to her marriage. I am also certain that the press would turn on her and Pippa would turn to the aristocracy, who would tell her (for the millionth time) to bug off.

Pippa is not safe and not secure and her husband might be tolerant now, but thing happen that can flip lives into the other side of life very quickly.

William is her protection, but he is not going to be the next king, Charles is. If Charles decides to cut the Midds out once he is King, William will not be able to do anything. I do not think Charles will tolerate the Midds freeloading and I think Charles has his own way of cleaning house. I am also sure that he hates the Midds and he might in fact help William out of his marriage (if that is what William wants) and he will wipe the floor with the pack of them.

I do wonder about her husband's business; slashed profits for his business might translate into a downgrade in her lifestyle and spending. Hedge Funds are one of many and with the increasing instability of the economy I think he will likely downgrade his living if he has to. I also wonder more about his operations and other such issues. I mean a man who has a business that relies on his reputation, his marrying Pippa would make me question his character.

^There were many similar comments at the time of the wedding ie why trust his judgement with your money when he has been sucked in by the midds and Pips had an alleged reputation of bed hopping all across London

I just wonder why a man with his own business and good connections (except for his father) are in fact so eager to give it all to the Midds. I mean really, he could have done better and there is no way I would want him handling ANY money of mine given how close Pippa is to the man who would have access to it. Frankly I do not know why people would want someone to place bets with their money and not just do stock research themselves. I am against that kind of access to any of my money and now with his father's impending charges, that is just a bad bet all around.

As for Pippa's bed hopping, she made the mistake of thinking that she could get away with messing around and not experience any consequences.

Family outing! Pippa Middleton is chic in a camel coat as she and her husband James brave the drizzle to take their baby son Arthur for a stroll

As any new parent knows, getting out and about for fresh air is vital when you have a newborn, and Pippa Middleton certainly didn't let a spot of drizzle hold her back from a family outing with husband James and their baby Arthur.

The couple were spotted taking a stroll near their London home on Saturday, with Pippa, 35, sheltering under an umbrella as James, 43, took charge of the pushchair.

The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister opted for a smart casual look for the outing in blue jeans, teamed with a chic camel coat and charcoal scarf.

She wore her brunette hair tied back from her face and seemed to go without make-up for the low key outing.

No elaborate christening then? No snotty society mention in the columns? No WK or the three royal children that will be there lending their titled luster to the event? Either Pippa and her husband have decided to remain low-key out of the shame of her FIL's alleged crime, or perhaps her husband put his foot down and told her that he was NOT going to participate in her airs and graces. I still think her life isn't what she wanted it to be and I think since her husband controls the money, he is dictating her way of life and that is not one of Pippa blowing his cash on chasing every party or other event and buying big jewels and couture clothing.

There was so much public ridicule at Ma's staged OTT Mary Poppins effort for Charlotte's Christening that they were advised not to do it again.  Those close to Pippa also say that they want to keep a low profile right now due to FIL's situation.

You know, I wonder if Pippa is aware that due to  her FIL's situation, that any chance at a higher society life is in fact impossible. As for her husband, I wonder if his slashed profits are the result of his father's alleged actions. Keeping a lower profile isn't going to help them at all since when this goes to court, I am dead certain that it will closed doors on the Middletons forever. As for the BRF, I wouldn't say that the BRF is something to brag about anyway socially. Pippa is no better off socially in terms of being a powerful society figure and she really made a mess of herself.

I KNEW that something messy was up with this guy since anyone who would want Pippa after the mess she has made of her life (2012 gun mess, messing around with guys while committed to others, wrecking her chance at a career as an author, badmouthing people publicly via leaks) and I believe (for reasons I still do not know) she is unable or unwilling to accept that actions have consequences. Second, decent men from decent families do not want to support a spouse in high style when wife in question does not have anything of her own or even want to work to contribute to the well being of the family. Third, sane men do not want to marry someone who will clearly expect to be able to keep up with a sibling who is an HRH and dealing with a MIL who will look down on them for not being titled or rich.

No one who does honest work and lives and honest life deserves that kind of mistreatment. Life can be hard enough, without having to deal with the hassle and pressure of supporting a family, while at the same time, dealing with a family of in-laws who will NEVER find them acceptable. When you throw in that not only are you supposed to work to keep your family off the streets, but work to a point where you are supporting the expensive tastes of a wife, it means that you've placed a horrific burden on one's shoulders. It would be all the more intolerable to end up having an ungrateful wife and her ungrateful family as well. Life is too short.

^ I doubt that chances at higher society are impossible. Not just because of Waity having married into the Winds, but also because the Matthews family have been part of that set for ages. And because no innocent child should suffer for the crimes of their father.
The Matthews r*pe scandal has been nicely swept under the rug. And even if it were blown wide open, it would affect the perpetrator more than his kids.
And let's not forget that people of that circle have survived even worse unscathed.

If she isn't invited to society stuff, it will matter to Pippa. Second, neither Pippa or her husband are innocents and third, people behind closed doors don't forget this stuff and it is those behind closed doors that decide whether or not Pippa gets invites to their homes. I am certain that it will matter to Pippa and frankly the Matthews bought that title and it goes no further back than James' father, no further and in that set, the age of the title matters as well.

I think she's having a bad day since she's been forced to deal with the fact that her FIL is now accused of underage violent physical attack, her husband isn't going to pay for her bills as she travels the world and racks up million pound shopping bills, and will not at all happy that her society aspirations have not at all worked out. Throw in the fact that she isn't being allowed to showcase her son to launch another attempt to become part of the upper crust social scene and it is a mess.

She wants all the wrong people to care about her and until she accepts the realty of her limitations that life has placed on her (for whatever reasons) she will continue to be miserable.

It affects the wife, children, the niece who was r*paed and her parents and if still alive the grandparents, but Pips and Vogue are fine.

If HM intervenes, this will make it worse for Kate among the courtiers and society that still refuses to accept her. Ever since Kate married in, HM and the royal court have had to include that vile family in events that shouldn't include them, clean up Pippa's gun scandal, the nude scandal, and the other asinine antics of her family.

Thing is, Pippa is always going to aim for the top tier and she can't move up with all that baggage. She is a fixture in the lower level set, but not the set she yearns for.

Because of the endless onslaught of sexual offense accusations, there’s a truly unfortunate diluting of how destructive the actual crime is.  Sort of like yawning at the guillotine.  In some parts, mostly more affluent, it’s practically a rite of passage to have a relative who’s been accused.  Sad, yet true. 

And, it must be stated, in our world anyway, an accusation is not a guilty verdict.  I don’t think Pippa is losing any sleep over anything.  She’s always seemed to me to be a tougher nut than her mother.

There's only an 'onslaught' lately mainly because only now are women coming out with stories of their mistreatment at the hands of predators. Just a handful of short years ago, Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein were golden and untouchable. Same with others who were previously golden and untouchable. Women are coming out only now mainly since they know that they will be believed and for some reason, things have changed. The rich and powerful are no longer perfectly protected.

He's found his papoose in life! Pippa Middleton's husband James Matthews swaddles baby Arthur to chest as he joins her and family for post Christmas drink at Berkshire pub
But Pippa Middleton decided to let her husband James Matthews take control as the family enjoyed a festive outing to a Berkshire pub on Boxing Day.
The 35-year-old wore a broad smile as she exited her vehicle, leaving multi-millionaire financier husband James, 43, to fit their little one into his baby carrier.
But the doting dad appeared to struggle with the contraption as he tried to safely lift his son from the car.
Thankfully mother-in-law Carole, clad in a chic green coat and trendy burgundy hat, was on hand to help.
The businesswoman quickly had the situation under control, and James was then seen successfully cradling baby Arthur to his chest.
Pippa was joined not only by her adoring mother, 63, but also by her father Michael, 69, and 31-year-old brother James.

^ Indeed. And finance people do take many holidays in very expensive areas. Besides, these are the days between Christmas and New Year, literally nothing's going on. Those who must work have very quiet days and some work can't even be done for those who must come into the office because partners in other offices aren't in. Most offices are closed actually.
(the exception are of course workers in public transport, police, health care who are often very busy in these days).

And how much time has James had off? We don't even know to say he has so much time on his hands... We also don't know if he took any paternal leave (unlikely or if so then in the first few weeks).
Any worker works better when they have time off, I doubt anyone's money is mishandled, James doesn't need to sit 24/7 behind a screen to monitor his clients' money. Come on now.

This is likely a Matthews family holiday in or around Eden Rock. I wonder if the Midds or Cambs are expected.

Besides, this is a very good time to make new business connections with all the other rich milling around St Barts right now. Nothing like business deals struck outside the board room.

In reality, these people work around the clock.  It's just how the business model works.  No issue here.

People like that all trade off each other.  The Matthews family are allegedly from a similar working class background to ma midd so the RF connection would be another step up.   Pippa (who was rejected by the Aristos) the bought title and money would have drawn her to the Matthews family.

I wonder if William realized just how much he would be putting on his shoulders once he married Kate. Bad enough that he would have to support Kate in full despite the fact that she was bringing nothing and then suddenly he had the entire Midd family clan on his shoulders, now he has the Spencer family to placate with favors. It's like he has taken two entire families on his shoulders when he didn't anticipate being responsible for the welfare of even one. At this point in time he will come to the conclusion that he is now in fact being used to the max.

^ If he doesn't realize this by now, he is even stupider than we ever thought.

I think he was naive and stupid an kept brainless by getting completely drunk all the time throughout his twenties. Then after a decade of booze and who knows what else, he thought he was settling down with a nice middle class girl and would enjoy the middle class simple life. The Midds played his clueless self to perfection. He also thought that the MIdds would provide an escape from royal life (not seeing how GOOD he has always had it) and he never saw how Pippa would hanker after a title/bank account of her own and it never occurred to him that he would be setting up himself for a fall, a big fall once they were on his shoulders.

I think he doesn't realize it mainly since he is as determinedly feckless as Marie Antoinette was during her time as queen. The Middletons are the modern day Polignacs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yolande_de_Polastron). A family that is mooching big time and William is too stupid to see it and won't see it. The Polignac family managed to control Marie by entertaining her at all times and being entertaining. The Middletons are keeping influence and control by ministering to his need for 'normalcy.' That is how they are effectively shearing him for favors and perks and prerogatives and all the while, stripping him of the respect that others had for him.

Sorry.

With Pippa, I think she's reached her peak and I think she is making the mistake of her life by thinking that she's secure; if her FIL ends up charged with sexual assault of a minor, she will be stigmatized by that. Not fair, but the world is not a fair place. I wonder what is holding up charges being pressed.

In some of the photographs of Baby Arthur, why is his face blocked with squares?

^ Because in some (most?) countries it's illegal to publish pics of minors without the parents' consent. As long as Pip & James don't allow for any set of pics of Arthur to be shown, his face will be pixelated. I think consent is needed for every set of pics, but am not sure. So I think every pap stroll would need to be okayed for Arthur's face to be shown, but maybe it's a one time thing?

Anyway, long story short: Pip & James haven't consented (yet) for their son to be shown, hence the pixels.


A long way from Sandringham! Pippa soaks up the sun in St. Barts with mum Carole, her reality star brother-in-law and his model wife - while little brother James embraces a mystery woman

    The Middletons and the Matthews families are currently enjoying a festive break on the island of St Barts
    Pippa and her husband James Matthews could be seen soaking up the sun together on the beach 
    Her younger brother James Middleton was seen sharing a kiss with an unknown woman in the sea
    Carole Middleton was also pictured at the beach with her two children on Monday
    Spencer Matthews and his wife Vogue Williams were pictured taking a stroll nearby

Pippa seems more interested in the camera than her own kid.
