Andrew Morton Discusses The Royal Family
May 19, 2011
Andrew Morton sat down to discuss the his new book about Prince William and Princess Catherine (don’t call her Kate!) called William & Catherine: Their Story and he shared some interesting revelations.
According to Popeater, Andrew believes Pippa Middleton, Princess Catherine’s younger sister, did not steal the show at the Royal Wedding. In fact, he claims that although to two sisters are quite competitive, Pippa’s role in the Royal Wedding was not as significant as others may believe. In fact, Andrew says “Pippa has an exotic walk-on part” and that’s it.
Here are some of the best parts of the interview:
Would you describe Pippa as a social climber?
Well she’s someone who is now aware of their social access and kudos. I think what’s going to be interesting will be how Pippa and James (the Middleton brother) handle fame by association which is almost more difficult to handle than fame by its’ own rise. They’ve become famous because their sister has become famous otherwise nobody could care less about them.
The American press are dying for Pippa and Harry to get together.
Well I think we all are. We all want a Hollywood ending and there is a precedent for it in the Middleton family. Kate and Pippa’s grandfather Peter and his brother married two sisters.
Do you think Diana would be pleased with Catherine?
Diana very much preferred to deal with the middle class than the upper classes and the Middletons are resolutely middle class. I think she would have found in Catherine a young woman who she could have mentored. She always wanted a daughter through the labyrinth like world of royalty and with Catherine she was tailor made in a way. She’s already got a sense of style, she’s got a great poise, she would have been perfect for Diana to groom into a sophisticated princess.
I agree, I think Princess Diana would have really liked Princess Catherine and I think she would have been really proud of her son for choosing his own wife, on his own terms.
As far as Pippa is concerned, she is definitely enjoying the limelight. As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, we don’t think there will be a Pippa and Prince Harry love fest anytime soon. Sure, we want it to happen just like everyone else, but Prince Harry has a type (blond with big boobs) and Pippa doesn’t seem to fit that description.
Plus, Pippa and Chelsy Davy, Prince Harry’s girlfriend, are pretty tight. So, it might violate girl-code if Pippa dated the Prince. But, if the guy in question is a prince, does girl-code go out the window?
Anyway, the book William & Catherine: Their Story by Andrew Morton is on sale now.
