Pippa Middleton Wedding: Kate To Miss? Royal To Attend Sailing Engagement Sunday

Pippa, 32, got engaged to hedge fund businessman James Mathews during a romantic break in the Lake District over the weekend.

Rumors have it though that Kate Middleton will not attend the wedding of her younger sister Pippa in 2017 because  the 34-year-old royal does not want to upstage the bride with her princess status.

“It’s a tricky situation for Pippa. She would want her sister by her side, as who else would she trust to make things go well?” said Judy Wade, veteran royals author. She added that Kate Middleton, who is the future queen, does not want to overshadow the bride, her little sister on her big day.

Pippa and James Matthews’ society wedding of the year will draw a lot of attention. And, in fact the presence of Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William as well as their kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte are all likely to take away the focus from Pippa, People reports.

Kate wants to avoid the situation and remain in the background. She may take up the role of reader in Pippa’s wedding like her younger brother James did during her royal wedding in 2011. Little George and Charlotte would in all likelihood play the role of pageboy and flower girl, and Kate would want to keep them in check.

Meanwhile, in a related development, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the America’s Cup World Series in Portsmouth on Sunday (July 24), Hello reports. The royal couple will first visit the Portsmouth base of Land Rover BAR, led by Olympic champion Sir Ben Ainslie, to see Team England’ progress.

They will then meet the teams from different countries participating in the sailing competition, and young people involved with the 1851 Trust.

Kate Middleton is a patron of the 1851 Trust. Last year, Kate and William could not attend the race as it was cancelled due to bad weather conditions.
