Well, I meant to post this yesterday as a nice bit of easy Sunday evening reading for you all, but what can I say? I managed to completely forget, so it’s a day later than I intended.
Here’s a little round up of news about our favourite Miss Middleton from last week:
It has been reported from several different sources that Pippa is on holiday in Mustique, at a villa named Aurora that costs $18,000 a week to rent out. She is said to be holidaying on the exclusive, private island with her parents, sister Kate and her brother James. Additionally, it has been reported Prince William will fly out to join the family on the island. It is set to be a right royal affair with Princess Eugenie also said to be holidaying on the island.
The private-island retreat has 74 villas for rent, 9 individual beaches, a boutique hotel, a beach bar, a health spa, a scuba-diving facility and an equestrian centre. Sports-fan Pippa will probably enjoy the exclusive tennis club on the island too.
The Aurora villa sleeps a maximum of 6 guests and has a 2 bedroom cottage nestled in the grounds, used as a private hideaway, complete with its own living, dining and leisure areas.
Here’s a glimpse of the villa from the Mustique Island website:
Pippa joins shooting party in Yorkshire:
The York Press reported that Pippa joined a pheasant shooting party at Carlton Towers in Yorkshire during early January. You can read more of this story here.
Carlton Towers is a family heritage site dating back to the 17th century. It boasts a Victorian Gothic exterior and is situated amongst 250 acres of parkland. The hall hosts wedding, parties, corporate events and other social occasions.
Here’s a picture of a shoot at Carlton Towers, to give you a sense of the day:
Pippa threatens the paparazzi with an injunction:
This news came days after the Daily Mail’s editor Paul Silva revealed that they would often receive up to 400 pictures a day of Pippa going about her daily business.
There have been a number of stories published over the last few days that share several of “Pippa’s” Valentines’ tips. These tips came from the Middleton family’s Party Times blog for their party company, Party Pieces. However, you should note that Pippa only edits the blog and the posts themselves are signed off by different writers, so she hasn’t written the tips at all (as far as we know!) However, she did sign her name to this email newsletter last week:
