Ever since the Royal Wedding (almost a year ago) Pippa Middleton has been stealing the spotlight from her older sister. People have become obsessed with the gorgeous younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, admiring her sense of style and her ever so famous derriere, and begging to know the details of her love life. She has been launched into the public eye, and dubbed “Her Royal Hotness.”
Recently Pippa has been making some not so favorable headlines … As I was watching CNN at the gym, I was baffled by the coverage of Pippa (I almost fell off the elliptical… ok, not really). She’s not even a royal and yet the attention she is getting over her recent run-in with the law, you would think the Queen herself committed a felony. The Washington Post begs the question “Has Pippa Middleton gone from royal in-law to outlaw?“ That seems a little harsh to me. Sure, the 28 year old, could have had better judgment on the situation. I mean a picture of her smiling while her friend points a pistol (whether real or not) at the photographer is just not in good taste. The girl, however, has been hounded by the paparazzi simply for being a pretty face and linked to the royal family.
All the Middletons have suffered from the attention, but not like Pippa. Meanwhile, Kate and William walk red carpets with the protection of heavy security.
I’m not saying the coverage of the Middletons doesn’t tickle my fancy, because it certainly does. I even think we should see more of the sultry looking Middleton brother (I hear he likes to hit the social scene). I just think maybe the scrutiny they get could be toned down a bit.
However, I doubt that will happen, and fortunately we will always have the images here at Newscom of the royals and their ever popular in-laws.
Oh and in better news, Prince Harry is coming back to the states.
