Well, Kate’s back from the honeymoon and now what? Oh, right. Pippa is all “Hey, so am I going to be your lady-in-waiting?” And Kate is all “Um, about that… not so much.” In Touch Weekly (via Hollywood Life) reports that Kate doesn’t want to put her little sister in the “lady-in-waiting” position because Kate thinks Pippa will overshadow her (Kate).
As I said, I think Oprah might actually be offering Pippa some kind of deal or exclusive, but I doubt Pippa is seriously considering any of that. She wants to be a duchess, and duchesses don’t do Oprah (or OWN!). As for the stuff about Kate not wanting to be overshadowed by Pippa… perfectly reasonable. I gave Kate props for letting her sister wear a pretty maid of honor dress for the wedding, but sisterly love has its limits, and those limits include being overshadowed on her first official overseas trip as a duchess/princess. Canada doesn’t need to see Pippa’s lady-in-waiting knickers!
