Kate: My Bum is Better Than Pippa's
Some brides might get a bit irritated at being upstaged by their bridesmaids, but according to a story in British gossip mag Now this morning, sibling rivalry is not an issue with the Middleton girls.
The mag reports that Kate Middleton isn't jealous in the slightest of the attention her little sister Pippa got for her bottom at the Royal Wedding a year ago, because she thinks her own booty is 'far superior.'
'She's done nothing but tease her about her "best feature",' says a friend, 'Not least, because Kate thinks hers is far superior.'
Last weekend marked a year since Kate and Prince William, 29, married in a ceremony watched around the world, and Pippa was catapulted to unlikely fame on account of her shapely derriere.
Whilst Pippa ran into controversy when a friend who was driving her in a car was photographed pointing a toy gun at paparazzi last month, Kate has had a faultless first year as a royal.
The latest person to add their praise to Kate's Royal debut is Sir John Major, the former British prime minister who has a close relationship with the Royals after he was appointed to represent the young Princes in legal matters following the death of their mother Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997.
The former prime minister told Max Foster of CNN: “I think she has handled it brilliantly. It isn’t easy, suddenly to find yourself the focus of world attention, to find whatever you do is the subject of publicity, whatever you wear is the subject of comment.
“It’s not easy at all. It’s a tremendous imposition suddenly. It takes a lot to get used to it but she has very good advice and I think she has handled it as well as it could possibly have been handled.
“I think she’s a natural…she has been faultless so far."
Major also spoke about the Duchess’s relationship with the Queen, saying: “People forget the Queen may be Monarch but she’s also a mother and a grandmother and a very human person. Of course she wants her grandson and her grandson’s wife to be successful and of course she offers help and they’d be foolish not to take it. Now plainly, one can see what a good relationship actually exists there…when people are surprised about that, they forget how human the Queen is. There are numerable occasions where her humanity and humour have been very apparent and most people don’t see.”
Sir John also praised the way the Duke of Cambridge had grown into his own public role since the death of his mother.
“I think he has done amazingly well and I think people are very happy with the way he has risen to the challenges he faced,” he said.
The full interview can be seen today in "The Royals: Kate, Duchess of Cambridge", on CNN International at 4.30pm in Europe, and at 1730 CET in the US.
