So what if they give interviews. People are interested in them and they aren't spilling any royal secrets.
He also try his best to set the record straight about his business. The media like to pick on him about the status of his business and finances. Now, the DM is reporting that his soon to be brother-in-law (Pippa's beau) has bailed out boomf.

I'm totally lost. I apparently have missed these 'interviews.' Please fill in the blanks.
"The Middletons" are in fact 5 people:
Michael - I can recall one statement that they were delighted when William and Catherine became engaged - are there other interviews I'm unaware of?
Carol - I can recall one statement as she left the hospital after first seeing her grandson - again, have I missed her interviews w/ the press?
Pippa - has given interviews (only a couple) to promote her book and hasn't given any interviews for quite some time - have I missed any?
James - has given interviews about his companies and perhaps a comment about his relationship w/ Donna - are there any others?

I believe your list of public announcements and comments from Mike and Carole is correct along, with your tally of the interviews given by Pippa and James which were done to promote her book and his companies. Apart from those I don't believe either sibling has done any others.

Not a big deal, but I have to roll my eyes every time people they "poor them" because the press is after them.

What about Pippa's appereances on tv and on many showy galas?

Most of the galas I've seen are charity related....but so what if she goes to galas?? Lots of people go to galas. I was also unaware that TV show appearances were an issue?

They still aren't spilling any royal secrets, giving the goods up to tabloids.

I feel bad for anyone who gets hounded by the press. Even if they moved off to the country and never went to London again...the media would be after them simply because Kate is married to William and what her position is/will be.

If Pippa attends an event in support of a charity (eg, British Heart Foundation), is she courting the Press?

Is she supposed to go into purdah as her sister is the future Queen?

Showy Galas? More like charity fundraiser dinners. She is an ambassador for British Heart Foundation along with other charities. She attended their fundraisers.

Other than the Today show interview a couple of years ago? When has Pippa done a tv interview recently.

The royals themselves do tv interviews. Harry was on Good Morning America in the Spring to promote Invictus but talked about other things too. Should a private citizen like Pippa be held to a higher standard than a Royal? I think not.

For no other reason than their middle class status, the Middletons, whose daughter jumped several (maybe or maybe not well planned!) hoops will always be scrutinised and critizied.

Had she been The Honourable Kate or Lady Kate, absolute! A noteworthy Queen in the making.

Middle class (lucky enough to have a family education trust fund that sent you to the boarding school where your friends' selection introduced you to the royal circle) Kate, not so much.

There is no doubt she worked out an extremely lengthly apprenticeship, as the chiefly unacknowledged Royal GF. All of her twenties in fact.

I just think it is no coincidence that she started to make morte public appereances after Kate got engaged/married.

There are members of the media, public and people online who much snobbish than the actual royals. While the family were welcoming Catherine to the fold, the outsiders were turning up their noses at her and her family.

Part of that "no coincidence" is that Pippa likely got invitations that resulted from her connection to Kate. Also Pippa may have gotten invitations in her own right because of her own connections through school and whatnot but then when she shows up her picture appears in the media because she is a known person.

Have you considered that she was making these same appearances at galas all along but that the media wasn't interested in covering her until Kate got engaged?

Pippa and James went to all kinds of charity events, galas and other events before the engagement was announced. They are a very active family. Some of their attendances go unnoticed to this day.

Yes, that's true. But she got connection way before Kate got engaged, as she had been William's girlfriend for a decade.

Yep, I thought about that, too. Pippa was followed even years before Kate became a member of the royal family.

We DON'T know this.
We DO known that Middletons were at Sandringham before and after the service.

My take on it is that the Middletons are at Anmer Hall on the Sandringham estate for Kate's birthday weekend. Nothing to do whatsoever with the "Big House" which is where the Queen resides on the Sandringham estate.

The church serves the community in and around the Sandringham estate.

At least before. They seem to get on very well with the Queen so it doesn't surprise me the Middletons were at Sandringham

The Duchess of Cambridge's parents Carole (far right) and Michael (centre front), sister Pippa (far left) and brother James (centre back) walked to the church service this morning from Sandringham House

it is a reasonable assumption as they walked to/from the church with HMQ's Lady in Waiting and friend, Lady Susan Hussey.
