Pippa Middleton is worried about her reputation as the sister of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. As many remember, Pippa was in a gun scandal last month while riding in a vehicle with three aristocratic French men while riding through Paris. The driver pulled out a replica handgun and pointed it directly at the camera of one of the photographers. It immediately caused an uproar as images of Pippa snickering at the situation were snapped. As innocent as it all became, it wasn’t funny in the days that followed. Since then Pippa Middleton has been photographed walking around London and even joined her sister and Prince William for a friend’s wedding almost two weeks ago. She surfaced in a big way sooner than expected. She wasn’t going to lay low just because tongues were still wagging over the gun scandal.
While it appears the Paris gun scandal has quietly gone away, Pippa obviously feels something needs to be done to protect her image because she has hired a PR professional to handle it — and a top notch one at that. David Wynne-Morgan is a the veteran PR rep who’s a consultant with Pelham Bell Pottinger. He declined to comment, but one of his associates told a British news source she hired him.
“Pippa wanted his advice on how she should deal with her PR,” the associate said.
Wynne-Morgan is accomplished and a former royal correspondent. He once advised Prince Charles and is very well connected.
Getting her own PR person is a good move on Pippa Middleton’s part because she’s a famous figure who’s hounded by the paparazzi continuously. By receiving wise advice and given some direction, Pippa might regain some of her positive image in the public eye. Right now she’s viewed as a spoiled and irresponsible sister-in-law to the future King of England. Will Wynn-Morgan suggest she not be seen with the same friends she was running around with in Paris?
