Lets face the facts here.

- Pippa worked in her family's business of Party Pieces for years. Long before she became notorious as being the sister-in-law to the future King.

- She didn't ask for or do anything really to attract the attention she started getting after the royal wedding. She just happened to have a nice butt in a beautiful dress.

- She wrote a book about what she knows about and as far as I can see, its a book that will serve a lot of people very well in entertaining.

Sometimes it helps to be pushed into the foreground in order to present what knowledge you have of something to the world. I hope she's tremendously successful.

To be successful with an online shop selling party items you need to have a lot of knowledge about what the majority of people actually want and like. Otherwise you stock (and pay for) stuff nobody buys and your business gets down the drain. The Middletons are successful in that field, so surely their daughter knows what people really like from just analyzing the sales figures of their business? So even if some ideas seem either odd or boring, that's obviously how people want to celebrate and why not give them some extra ideas around themes and events they enjoy?

The same can be said vice versa. I'm not blaming Pippa, she is by far not the only 'celeb' making the most of a public persona without any substance.

Without any substance? She works for a company that specialises in party planning. A book on that topic seems natural to me.

Again, Pippa can't help that the media are fascinated by her.

Pippa Middleton shows no sign of a launch party hangover as she wraps up in a chic navy coat on day two of her party book promotional tour | Mail Online

Pippa looking lovely as usual

Again the DM pointing out the fact that Pippa is wealthy and to party like Pippa is not possible for the DM's core readership hahaha..... cue the vitriol from the comments

Well the family were more than a little successful before their elder daughter married a member of the BRF. You can hardly expect the family to close up their businesses and their careers because of one members marriage.
As far as Philippa is concerned she has been followed by the press almost every day since she followed her sisters down the aisle at the Abbey. I see no reason why she should not turn that unwanted attention into a positive, especially since her career was already in the party planning business. The press gave her the attention and now charge her with capitalizing on it. What hypocrites.

As if the party tipps by the DM are affordable for all readers. Or the beauty product "tests"... Again hypocrisy!

Well with that kind of logic, no one should be able to afford a thing from Party Pieces then right? Sometimes you just have to see its the DM to know that its not going to be serious journalism.

Who do the Middletons think they are- Royalty? Pippa's book venue vetted by palace protection officers. Article from the Daily Mail. Can not post the link right now but you find the article instantly on their homepage.


And while we're talking about the Daily Mail .... :-)

There are dozens of reasons why officers would vet the venue beforehand. One thing is certain, the Middleton family didn't have anything to do with it.
The Protection Branch does what it thinks is necessary and don't give their reasons.
Most people I have asked think it wasn't out of the ordinary (maybe some Royals were going to attend and then cancelled at the last minute, who knows)but as per usual, the DM is attempting to whip the 'masses' into a frenzy. Boring and all too typical reportage from the DM.

Reportedly Andrew , Beatrice and Eugenia all attended. And perhaps Kate was behind the scenes 'maybe'.

Beatrice and Eugenie attended celebrations at LouLou's (the Mayfair member's club) - not Daunt Books (where Royal Protection officers supposedly performed security checks). Not sure where you got the information about Prince Andrew but I'm pretty sure he wasn't at the book's launch (at Daunt Books) either.

Pippa looks so happy and it nice to see the papers giving her so much free publicity.
Her new 'boyfriend' is handsome too.

I don't know; every time she's seen with a man the papers say he is the new boyfriend.
Let's see if they are photographed together on a long-term basis.
