Pippa Middleton People Cover Story

Pippa Middleton Proves Royals Are the New It Celebrities

Move over reality TV stars. Members of the British royal family and everyone with some connection to them have caught the attention of the American public. After she — or more specifically her behind — gained an instant Facebook following during the royal wedding, Pippa Middleton has landed a People Magazine cover. While dalliances of royal families and aristocrats have provided entertainment for centuries, it appears they're having a comeback.

The issue promises details on the fun, flirty, and suddenly famous 27-year-old Middleton sister. The sneak peek calls her "athletic, ambitious and well educated" and "more outgoing" than her older sister. And it also continues the story line that Pippa stole the spotlight on the big day, although I think it was impossible to steal anything from the poised, impeccable, and perfectly happy looking bride.

As the striking sister of Duchess Catherine, Pippa can afford to let her hair down, and take her shirt off while dancing, every once in a while. Which may make her the more entertaining, if not technically royal, export. Even so, this generation of royals already appears tamer than the previous, who got caught up in such scandals like "tampongate," in which Prince Charles was secretly recorded telling then-mistress Camilla he wanted to be her . . . oh, you get the idea.

Totally, manekineko88. As someone who has a sister only one year younger than me, I love when we both get dressed up and look our best! I'm sure Kate was happy her sister looked beautiful.

I think her and her sister are equally gorgeous, but the only reason Pippa "stole the show" was because it creates a great controversy for the journalists to recount.

I think what she has going for her is that she's both aspirational and attainable at the same time. She's gorgeous and seems to live a glamorous life, but she's also still a "normal" girl, not a princess (yet...hee hee!).

Pippa’s pretty enough to sell a couple of magazines. Beyond Wills & Harry, there’s been a bit of a lull in the past 5-8 years, but otherwise, royals as celebrities is nothing new.
