Kate Middleton's younger sister Pippa is now one of those after-dinner speakers that pop up at corporate dinners and amuse everyone present with witty anecdotes about life over dessert — or possibly the cheese course, depending on how fancy the restaurant is. She warms up backstage with vocal lessons that include whispering the phrase "some day my prince will come too and I won't have to deal with any of this bullsh*t" over and over. (Well, wouldn't you?)
At an event last night (her very first gig) Pippa discussed her big sister Kate's wedding back in 2011. Royal wedding stories are always fun, after all; I'm still waiting for the expose on whatever debauched bridal shower Camilla Parker-Bowles organized. In particular, Pippa spoke about her role as a bridesmaid and the Internet fame it won her — well, her butt. "As I have found out, recognition has its upside, its downside and – you may say – its backside," she said. In retrospect, she added, maybe her Alexander McQueen gown "fitted a little too well." Everybody laughed politely, I presume, though one guest tweeted later that Pippa was humorless all the same.
