Pippa Middleton is speaking out about the overnight fame she achieved after the wedding of her sister, Kate Middleton — the Duchess of Cambridge — to the future King of England, Prince William. Her bottom was the sole focus as she took on the role as Maid of Honor for the Royal Wedding. In a new interview, the younger sister of Kate opens up about what it’s been like living in her world.
Part of this interview was likely part of a marketing strategy to sell her book, Celebrate: A Year Of British Festivities For Families And Friends.
“It is a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30 on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom,” Pippa told Daily Mail.
She went on to say:
“One day I might be able to make sense of this. In the meantime I think it’s fair to say that it has its upside and its downside.
“I certainly have opportunities many can only dream of – but in most ways I’m a typical girl in her 20s trying to forge a career and represent herself in what can sometimes seem rather strange circumstances.
“I am by nature an optimist so I tend to concentrate on the advantages.
“One of the most attractive has been the chance to publish [this book] Celebrate.”
“I know many of you will pick up the book out of nothing more than curiosity,” Pippa continued. “[But] I can assure you that it feels even stranger to me than it probably does to you to have seen so much written about me when I have done so little to paint a picture of myself.
“This is my first chance to do that and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
‘The book is designed to be a comprehensive guide to home entertaining, based on my experience in my family’s business Party Pieces and work for London-based events company Table Talk.”
Pippa Middleton has certainly been living the good life since she skyrocketed to fame just for being the sister of Prince William’s wife. It’s nice to finally hear her perspective on how her she handles the intense amount of global interest people have in her.
Will you be buying Pippa’s book out of “curiosity”?
