Kate Middleton was forced to do something utterly dastardly to her little sister. Pippa Middleton was gearing up to cash in on her royal connections with a press tour to help push her new book, Celebrate. The Royal family was not ready to let someone so unpredictable like Pippa out on her own to talk with the press. Mainly, they were afraid of the press asking questions about Kate and those topless pictures despite them having nothing to do with Pippa’s book.
Pippa was forced to cancel the tour and guess who got to deliver the news? Yep, big sister Kate. A source claims, “Palace officials stood firm and demanded that Kate personally break the devastating news.” Apparently, Kate begged and pleaded on behalf of Pippa, but there was no swaying the Queen and her advisors.
Kate is pretty spoiled by Prince William, but in this case, even his hands were tied. The insider reports, “Stressed and nervous, Kate did her awful dutyÂ—and Pippa broke down in tears!” Will this hurt the sisterly bond? Apparently, Kate is worried her relationship with Pippa “will never be the same again.”
Quite frankly, Kate Middleton may have saved Pippa Middleton from a lot more heartache and embarrassment. Her book has received horrid reviews. It could have been a publicity nightmare.
