The article does not even say if she was a guest of the owner of the helicopter company or if she and her friends rented the aircraft... Where's the problem, anyway? Using a copter to come to locations off the beaten track is standard in Scotland as there are not many good roads once you leave the coasts. The difference between Pippa and Prince Andrew is the fact that Andrew used public funding to fly to private events while Pippa either payed herself or was a guest of the owner of the aircraft.

Exact Kataryn, if ain't my money, not my business, she could have arrived by Apollo 13 for all I care. Some will always find a reason to moan.

Agreed. When William and Harry flew the helicopter to the stag party (Peter Phillips?) or William landed one in Catherine's parent's garden - I can see the uproar, but Pippa is a private citizen and used no taxpayer money. I wouldn't be surprised if the charity paid for it, though, as having her compete put their cause in the headlines.
Now if Prince Harry had been flying the helicopter, that would be news.
I'm wondering if George Percy is one of those guys - you know, the ones who have a crush on you, would do anything for you and kind of hang around, hoping you'll be interested in being more than friends - sort of ready to pounce if your current boyfriend doesn't work out.
I've read conflicting reports that she dated George Percy in the past and that she didn't date him, but actually dated his current roommate back when they shared the flat.

Great job, Pippa. A 50 mile run and bike race is grueling and she did it by finishing in top 15 of the women.

If she wants to hire a helicopter rather than sitting hours in a car that should be her business. And why not wear eye make-up. There was no doubt she would be photographed so why not look her best.

I read that Pippa was seen looking at new flats in London.
I believe her current place is really a pied a terre used by the Middleton family when they are in the city.

(This might support the rumor that she'll soon get engaged to Alex Loudon, but on the other hand, she was accompanied by George Percy- again). I wonder what's going on.

I believe he was a flatmate when she dated that Jardine person (not sure of the full name at this moment).

Good grief! This newspaper (and I use the term very loosely) doesn't really know where or when to stop.

Stories like this are popping up everywhere!
Based on nothing more than a few encounters (and probably wishful thinking).

Still, suppose there's something in all this speculation.
What does everyone think?
Would Pippa be a better choice of wife for Harry than Chelsy would?

I think Alex and Pippa have had some problems in their relation,that is normal for any couple in a critical moment-to decide how to go further

Well the young lady with Pippa has apparently been doing some shopping but I'm not seeing bags and bundles in Pippa's arms. Maybe Pippa is just going along with her friend????

It seems not many are really interested in the "old nobility". I guess there a few that follow the Bourbons and Habsburgs which is nice for them nice they've all lost their "kingdoms".

Well the Borbons certainly have a Crown.

They don't seem together in the picture, though.
It's like two separate photos were placed together or something.
