The thing I enjoy the most is the dogs. Rafa and the lab (cant remember the name) are adorable. I have to laugh when before their wedding, James was said to be walking his 'future sister in law's' dog. The newspapers suggesting (telegraph at least) that he was walking Lupo

What would the DM do if she didn't have dogs? They may go into withdrawl if they couldn't snap her walking the dogs.

The black cocker spaniel (Rafa) is adorable. Nice name. That's interesting.

Hmm, hard to believe the press didn't get a decent photo of Pippa and had to use an old one!

Still, she went to dinner with her husband and her brother, so it's a change from showing her with her dogs.

What a shame that only because her sister married into BRF she has to be stalked by the crap low-class media.

One definitely senses now that her privacy is being intruded upon. She is doing nothing to foment this 'interest'. When it becomes unambiguously clear she is pregnant the 'interest' will ramp up methinks to intolerable levels. Poor kid!

Does Pippa have a job these days?
Or does she spend her days walking the dog and going to the gym, as the tabloids would have us believe?!

I don't think she has a job right now.
Of course, her husband is very wealthy so she doesn't need to earn a living.

Perhaps she is deciding what to do next, or just taking a break.

BREAKING NEWS: Pippa Middleton's father-in-law is charged with rape of a child | Daily Mail Online

The multi-millionaire father-in-law of Pippa Middleton was in custody in Paris tonight accused of raping a child.

David Matthews, 73, is said to have carried out the attack between 1998 and 1999, while on holiday in France.

A relative is said to have reported him to the police, leading to Matthews reporting to judges in the French capital on Tuesday.

Citing legal sources, French national news agency AFP said Matthews had now been charged with the ‘rape of a minor by a person with authority over his victim’.

Matthews is the father of James Matthews, 41, who is married to Pippa, the 34-year-old sister of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, who is married to Prince William.

Wow! Well, I hope the Matthews family privacy is respected during this whole ordeal.

This is not good press. Not good at all.

Eeeer not a single chance.
It's "Pippa Middleton" who is trending right now, not "David Matthews". and the "A relative is said to have reported him to the police" isn't helping either.
Just wait for the Cambridges to be dragged in this sordid story by some press...

This person must have been incredibly young since France had a very, very low age of consent until just recently, like 12 or under. Unless the sticking point is "person of authority over victim", then we could be looking at someone older, maybe a relative?, who else would you have a position of authority over while on vacation?

But if true, it sad it's taken so long to prosecute. As the years pass it's get's harder for the police to build a case unless evidence was saved. It will probably be an uphill battle for this young man/woman.

And on a petty note, I'm not sure why the DM has styled Catherine as a widow/divorcee. They're either incompetent or they're very pessimistic about the Cambridge marriage.

The age of consent in France is 15 since 1945, and it will remain as such after some discussions to lower it to 13.

Okay, you're French so I'll take your lead, but you rarely see prosecuting cases unless the victim is under 13. At least from an international standpoint, maybe it's more frequent locally. If this victim isn't a relative, I bet he/she will have been a child during the incident.

It’s bad for Mr. Matthews. Not anyone else.

True, the main point in the case is that the child was under the authority of the accused ...
