It’s been more than three years since Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot…making it also more than three years since the world became fascinated with the Duchess’ sister, Pippa Middleton. But it was just recently that the 30-year-old gave her very first interview, Part One of which aired on Today Monday morning.
“It sounds funny to say, but we, as a family, saw it as just a family wedding,” she said of the talked-about nuptials. “Actually, I didn’t realize the scale of it until afterwards and I had to make sure I helped my sister where I could, and just look after the bridesmaids and page boys. But we really saw it as a family getting together and doing their bit, like any family.”
Of course, what really got people talking after the wedding was Pippa’s bridesmaid dress, which showed off a lot more of her figure (namely, her backside) than she expected.
“It was completely unexpected,” she admitted. “The plan was not really for it to be a significant dress…really just sort of blend in with the train. And, I suppose it’s flattering. Embarrassing, definitely. It wasn’t planned, the dress was almost meant to be insignificant.”
She added that she doesn’t plan to ever wear the dress again…but it is sitting at home in her “wardrobe!”
