There are only six months to go before Pippa Middleton gets married to hedge fund manager James Matthews, so naturally details are going to begin to slip through the cracks. The Sun has the 411 on what’s about to go down and it might not be what you expect. Unlike big sis Kate, Pippa wants to keep things traditional and low-key and wants a simple wedding at her family’s village church and the reception at her parents’ house.
“There’s been a lot of speculation that Pippa would get married at her fiancé’s hunting lodge in Scotland or have a massive bash in London,” a friend told The Sun. “But she’s a traditional girl and just wanted to get married at home. Her mum has been very involved in all the wedding planning and she wants to show off their house to all their friends. Plus, how can you compete with Kate who got married at Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace? This way, Pippa can keep it private and very personal.”
Pfft. Who needs Westminster Abbey when you have Middleton Manor? It’s the perfect place for 150-plus guests, just lovely and quaint.
By the time Pippa’s wedding rolls around, it’ll have been six years since she and her booty stole her sister’s thunder when Kate wed Prince William. And while Pippa might want to keep things private and personal, is that even going to be possible, what with her sister likely in the bridal party and her royal niece and nephew walking down the aisle as flower girl and page boy? And how could we forget James’ reality show-starring brother, Spencer, who will reportedly be the best man?
Despite the vast differences in weddings, comparisons will be made between Kate’s grand nuptials and Pippa’s quieter choice. But that’s just how things go, right, what with sibling rivalry and all that? Pippa’s butt may have overshadowed Kate’s wedding but royalty tends to be a bit of a spotlight grabber, no matter how much they want to lay low.
