has revealed she found her rise to fame because of the royal family and her derriere a bit “startling.” The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister has opened up for the first time about her new-found celebrity status in her new party-planning book, Celebrate, admitting that she is struggling to "make sense" of becoming famous because of her bottom.
The 29-year-old sister of Britain's future Queen, whose bum became one of the highlights of last year’s Royal Wedding, confesses in the book: “It is a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30 on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom.”
Pippa Middleton catapulted to fame after she played a maid of honor at the Royal Wedding of her sister Kate with Prince William in 2011 thanks to a figure-hugging white dress that accentuated her bottom.
In a new party planning book, titled Celebrate: A Year Of British Festivities For Families And Friends, she has revealed that she is trying to concentrate on the advantages her association with the Royal Family brings.
She writes: “One day I might be able to make sense of this. In the meantime I think it’s fair to say that it has its upside and its downside. I certainly have opportunities many can only dream of – but in most ways I’m a typical girl in her 20s trying to forge a career and represent herself in what can sometimes seem rather strange circumstances.”
She adds: “I am by nature an optimist so I tend to concentrate on the advantages. One of the most attractive has been the chance to publish [this book] Celebrate.”
The brunette beauty is gearing up for the launch of her new book that goes on sale at the end of this month.
In an extract published in You magazine, Pippa continues: “I know many of you will pick up the book out of nothing more than curiosity. [But] I can assure you that it feels even stranger to me than it probably does to you to have seen so much written about me when I have done so little to paint a picture of myself.”
She adds: “This is my first chance to do that and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. The book is designed to be a comprehensive guide to home entertaining, based on my experience in my family’s business Party Pieces and work for London-based events company Table Talk.”
