Wow. A woman hangs around with her friend that she's close to while dating another guy and its instantly that she's "cheating". To me, that's very narrow minded thinking. A person can be married and go out to concerts or dinner or somewhere with a member of the opposite sex that's a friend and its no where near "cheating". In most cases, I would think the spouse is very, very happy that he/she didn't have to go to somewhere they really didn't want to go in the first place.

No kidding. When Pippa took her close friend Tom Kingston as her escort to Boodles Ball in 2015, his gf Gabriella Windsor didn't throw a fit and start running around the streets of London screaming "He's cheating on me!" Instead she was happily photographed with her bf a couple days later.

It's sad that some get uppity about male-female friendships. It's like I mentioned on the last page about poor Pippa and George, William and Jecca, and Chelsy and Jacobi; they shouldn't have to put up with those close-minded pearl clutchers.

Amen for sensible thinking. In my happy 30 yrs of marriage majority of my friends have been men, my work has meant either long hours or lots of socialising and spending wks away with male colleagues abroad.

Shock horror!

Why do some people ALWAYS assume the worst???

Why does it matter how long Pippa and James have been together? They have known each other for a long time. There is another thread on this forum that already is talking about how they are going to celebrate the wedding of a ginger prince and lady that he has only been pictured with three times and the last time he didn't look all that happy and spent the next 2 days hanging on a beach without her.

The tabloids always feed that "the wedding is imminent!" bs. They started engagement rumors about Pippa and Alex when they had been dating less than a year and said the two would beat William and Catherine to the altar. Then they said Nico proposed to Pippa in 2013 during the holiday in India, after only dating a year. And of course the countless engagement rumors about Beatrice and Dave.

Despite being a new couple and still getting to know each other, Harry and Meghan can expect engagement rumors on a regular basis until they either breakup or they make it official. The tabloids don't care how foolish and redundant they look.

Nico moved to Switzerland in 2014, not 2015.

Here's the trio in 2014 in Istanbul with Pippa's back to the camera http://c8.alamy.com/comp/E546HB/ista...the-E546HB.jpg. Not only a very strong friendship but there clearly was still unresolved feeling between Pippa and James or they wouldn't have gotten back together immediately after she split from Nico.
Oooh, would love to have been a fly-on-the-tent-wall in that picture.

Pips is a great catch. Nico couldn't hold on and James caught her.

I'm just glad the church is on a private estate. Hopefully, will help keep the dreaded tabloids at bay.

Yep. I also think it helps that the estate is owned by a friend of Pippa's so he'll probably be extra accommodating to whatever Pippa wants for the day.

NOTHING will keep the tabloids at bay, if they have to tunnel underground or hire parachutists.

They know articles about the Middletons are clickbait.
The photogs who took 400 pictures of Pippa walking around are not going to miss out on her wedding, no matter what they have to do.

The estate belongs to a friend of the Middletons who also happens to be a Member of Parliament.

I think security will be tight.

I'm a little afraid over what kind of illegal tactics they'll try.

Reading your "hire parachutists" quip, it reminded me of the stunt The Daily Fail pulled with Princess Eugenie's 25th birthday extravaganza. The party took place in the Royal Lodge so the tabloids were only left with car pictures of people driving up the public part of the road, so the desperate DM hired a helicopter to illegally fly over and photograph the events. It was nice to see the Mail get legally spanked.

There will certainly be media interest in Pippa's wedding. However the 400 photos figure (of Pippa) which was quoted in earlier posts was from the Leveson Inquiry which began in 2011 and was completed in 2012.

This was at the time of the Royal Wedding and the press furore about Pippa the bridesmaid's behind as she went down the aisle, a time when she was a new media personality supposedly an interest of Harry's, (rumours of secret dates etc for a short time) and then Earl Percy after the romance with Alec broke up and when Press interest was at its height (even though they were just great friends.)

I believe that the Press interest in Pippa is not at the fever pitch it was when those hundreds of photos were being taken each month. Papparazi are no longer as prevalent as they were then, for a start.

Perhaps not.

But there's been an article about Pippa's wedding in the DM practically every day lately!

(True, it's more or less the same article, but there it is).

Hmm. I haven't seen this on KP twitter. Did a KP source give her a private confirmation? I would be weird for KP to make an official statement as the bride and groom are private citizens.

Roya was wrong on almost all her godparents claims for George, so I can't help being a little unsure of her.
