Pippa Middleton is at the center of a gun scandal that is putting her image in jeopardy, thanks to a high-society man who is reportedly a friend of hers. The sister of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, went on a weekend getaway in Paris, France when she made headlines for her party behavior. When she was in an Audi convertible with Arthur de Soultrait driving, paparazzi followed them and he pulled out a pistol — pointing it straight at the camera of one French photographer. Pippa was seen laughing off the whole stunt as two other men sat in the back seat peering behind them smiling at the cameras. Clearly they thought it was funny and nothing to take overly serious.
French authorities are looking into the matter that happened Saturday. If the gun Soultrait had was the real thing, he and the other passengers — including Pippa Middleton — could face up to seven years in prison. If it’s a fake then the sentence could be two years.
Royal editor of The Sun, Duncan Larcombe, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that a source spoke to them about the gun scandal Middleton was a part of.
The source said, “If the evidence points to her involvement, she will be prosecuted. Anybody involved in the illegal use of a handgun in public is liable to arrest and interrogation.”
“Pippa is a party girl,” Larcombe told the ABC morning news show. “She mixes now in very high society and they don’t come very higher than this group of French aristocratic sons.”
Will Pippa Middleton get into trouble with her sister’s royal in-laws? Surely the Queen isn’t taking this lightly. Although Pippa isn’t part of the royal family, she’s linked to Kate and it’s no secret the Queen has had her limit of bad publicity when it comes to the British monarchy. If she thought it was over when Diana died, she was sadly mistaken!
