Interesting.

Is Miles the reason for the invitation, do you think?
Or does the Duke just want an interesting "mix" for his party?

I'm trying to find out the local gossip, but many seem to think Miles was the reason.

frankly i never understood all the hype around her. she is not super pretty she is average..
and this media created hype over her figure.. is nonsense. she does nothing scandalous other then dress badly at times.

all she seems to do is go to work with a coffee in her hand ..go home shop and hangout with her friends on the weekends ... she is completely boring. but the media keeps trying to invent this buzz about her its silly

I don't think they (the media) do invent it; I believe it is supply and demand.

There are plenty of websites devoted to Pippa, and there's little real information about her. So the demand is met by innocuous photos and wild speculation (about Pippa dating Harry, for example. Those of us on this forum know it's nonsense, but the idea is still being tossed about on other sites).

The name Pippa was chosen 14 times in Flanders for baby girls in 2011.

Actually, Pippa is the nickname for Philippa and I wonder if these parents realize that, or even care.

You beat me to it Baroness, I was just going to ask if these children were actually named Pippa or Philippa.

The name Pippa is in the list and that's the official name. I guess people who name their child after a celebrity don't really care what the original name is.

According to this, the Pippa craze shows no sign of diminishing soon:

Wonder if Pippa will give any interviews? I suppose she'll have to, in order to promote her book.

IMO.. the more I read about Pippa either here or anywhere else it crops up, all I can say is that the woman has business smarts. This is the woman that Sarah Ferguson wishes she set an example for.

It started with THE dress. THE perfect behind. Perhaps a media frenzy of what to focus on now that Kate is safely married and by the looks of things (and with Wills known aversion to press) untouchable,

In all due respects I do think that the paps have hounded Pippa but with savvy, she's turned it all to her advantage. THE behind has smarts enough to make the best of it all. and a nice bank account to boot.

I don't think for a minute it was intentional and that she courted the attention. After all, Kate did choose the dress she wore and thought it was fitting (pun intended) but to take something that could drive someone else into hibernation and scream and turn it to their own advantage is pure business genius.

The Middletons taught their children well.

Imagine the media frenzy when Pippa starts dating again!

(Or perhaps she is, and is keeping it very quiet? Since she can't even buy coffee without someone taking a picture, maybe she can't go out to dinner with a man in public. She and Alex split some time ago, so it seems likely she'd be seeing someone by now.)

Looks like Pippa is dating again. No wonder she wanted her privacy.

Wow! Is it just me or did that article read like a bunch of rubbish? She may or may not be dating George, but I'd bet all that stuff about the New Year's party is completely made up.

It's amazing how a lot of newspapers focus on Pippa despite a lot of other world news,just at the same time.
The media reports that Pippa is dating George Percy, so she will be a duchess. I believe if that's true, it proves clearly that Pippa is a social climber. Well, maybe the friendship it's key for everything .As for me, Pippa and Kate seem to be very different, it's definitely a contrast between them.I feel pity for Pippa's ex-boyfriend Alex.

I was just about to post this!

It seems to be all over the papers.
The articles hint that Pippa has been seeing George since the summer but they couldn't reveal it until the split with Alex had been over for some time.

Well, I hope she does marry George, if only to show up those snobs who say the Middletons aren't good enough for the RF and the aristocracy! Go Pippa!

But I bet the press will really hound her now.
