Pippa Middleton became an overnight international sensation almost three years ago when she walked down the aisle at the wedding of her sister Kate Middleton to Prince William. Almost as exciting as the wedding, however, was the shape of Pippa’s backside. It made headlines for weeks–probably even months–following the wedding. In fact, it’s making news still. Pippa recently spoke about the dress she wore as her sister’s maid-of-honor, and how it perhaps showed off her bum a bit more than it should have.
“As I have found out, recognition has its upside, its downside and—you may say—its backside,” Pippa said at the Women in Advertising and Communications dinner in London on Tuesday, as she joked about becoming famous because of her shapely derriere.
Pippa added that she was “glad it fitted” at the time of her sister’s royal wedding. She also added, “In retrospect, it fitted a little too well.”
Surprisingly, this wasn’t the first time Pippa Middleton spoke out about being the “butt of the joke.”
“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,” she said during an interview with the Mail back in 2012. “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.”
At one point Pippa was even accused of having worn some “extra support” underneath her fitted ivory gown.
“I’m not convinced that it’s completely natural,” London spa owner Lesley Reynolds Kahn said of Pippa’s appearance during a TLC special called Crazy About Pippa. “Because I think, if you look at other photos of her and you see her in jeans, she’s got quite a flat bottom. I think possibly for the day, for that gorgeous dress, she may have had some sort of pants that gave her a little bit of a lift, or even a little bit of padding.”
Those who have seen Pippa Middleton in a variety of other well fitting ensembles since the royal wedding likely disregard Kahn’s remark. It’s plain to see that Pippa was blessed in the bum department. Oh, the torture that poor woman will suffer if ever she opts to get married and then have a child. That perky posterior might very well plummet to the ground. She will no doubt need that extra support if and when that happens.
