Pippa Middleton is newly engaged and hasn’t announced a wedding date yet. If Pippa has her heart set on either of two dates in 2017, Kate Middleton’s sister is going to cause controversy. Most brides prefer a summer wedding held on a Saturday. Guess what? July 29, 2017 is on a Saturday. Why would Kate be infuriated if Pippa chose that date? That is the day Prince Charles wed Princess Diana in 1981. Definitely inappropriate, don’t you think?
Another date Pippa could be eyeing? April 29, also on a Saturday in 2017. That one is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s anniversary.
Wouldn’t Pippa prefer a date that doesn’t put her in the shadows of Kate Middleton or Princess Diana? Why would Pippa want to share a wedding anniversary with the Duchess of Cambridge or marry on the date of a publicly doomed marriage?
If Pippa chooses either date, that would probably thrill Carole Middleton. Another opportunity to bask yet again in the tiny bit of the Royal spotlight she can grab. Pippa reportedly has enlisted David Emanuel, co-creator of Princess Diana’s one-of-a-kind wedding dress. Now the British socialite wants to take things one step further and marry on either Princess Diana or Kate Middleton’s wedding anniversary?
What’s next – will Pippa choose to marry at St. Paul’s Cathedral because the aisle can accommodate a 25-foot train? Or is Carole Middleton using her Royal connections and scheming to score the ultimate Royal wedding venue – Westminster Abbey?
What’s next? Carole finagling Queen Elizabeth into allowing the Middletons to invite guests to Buckingham Palace for Pippa Middleton and James Matthew’s reception?
We’re guessing the Middletons aren’t paying for this wedding. James and his parents, David Matthews and Jane Parker, are probably ponying up for this faux Royal wedding. James and his mother Jane are going to have a lot to say about the wedding date, where the couple marries, and where the reception is held.
Why choose April 29 or July 29? There are 50 other Saturdays Pippa Middleton could choose from in 2017. Carole needs to remember Pippa isn’t a Royal bride, merely a socialite marrying a very wealthy man.
