I doubt that this true but even if it is true it doesn't change my opinion about Wills behavior.

If Pippa already had her Hen party, I'm glad she had a good time. Don't like talking about William's trip.

I have to admit that I hope there's good coverage of Pippa's wedding.
I expect her dress to be outstanding!

I am looking forward to see the clothes the Duchess of Cambridge wears at her sisters wedding.

It would be nice to get some nice coverage of the wedding. Some nice pictures and perhaps some video.

Considering that during the Leveson Inquiry tabloid editors revealed they were receiving 400+ paparazzi pictures of Pippa each and every day (a number which still astonishes me), I'm gonna guess the press are going to be all over her wedding. I hope it doesn't ruin it for her and her family. Some coverage is to be expected but the British press have never chosen to err on the side of caution.

I think they'll have to- I'm sure we'll get pictures outside the church, but any other photos would probably have to be released by the couple themselves- the reception being at the Middleton family home, squarely on private property, should help.

The church is also on private property accessed through a private road, so there might not be that many pictures outside the church either. Probably will be pics of people in their car as they drive into the private road of the church, and as they drive towards Middleton Manor.

I hope for the same coverage as on this Christmas.

Unlikely. The church was open to the public for Christmas service hence the paparazzi used that loophole to be on the private property. This will be a private wedding at the church, therefore the public aka paparazzi, won't have the right to be on the church's private property or their private road. So instead of the close range pictures from Christmas, you'll more likely see long range photos and the paparazzi camped out at the junction where the private road starts.

I think it all depends on how the family and security work with the media. They may allow some media to be present outside the church. It's their job to help control the media interest in the wedding.

Both the bride and the groom are private citizens. They owe the media nothing, especially considering how nasty the tabloid press is to them and their family and friends. Why should she let the paparazzi make bank at the expense of her guests' comfort and privacy.

You may want to look at pictures, but frankly Pippa owes you nothing.

I know Pippa and James owe the media and us nothing. I'm just saying they know the media will be all over this wedding. It's best for the families, church and security to work with the media on pictures outside of the church. Let's be realistic here.

I'm sure the security will enforce the 'no trespassing' onto private property, if that's what you mean by working with the media.

The media never got pictures of Catherine attending her Uncle Simon's wedding in 2011, or pictures of her attending her Cousin Adam's weddings a few years ago. I guess her uncle and cousin weren't being realistic, but they lucked out nonetheless.

No, Pippa doesn't owe the media or public anything as a private citizen. However, private citizens don't usually hire PR representatives. Pippa has done so, which shows IMO a desire to control her public image to a certain extent.

But it is not their job. It may be a consideration, but it is not their job.

I'm thinking there will be a deal with a media outlet to get exclusive rights with pay to go to a charitable organization. Just my guess.

I don't blame her for wanting to counter all the trash written about her. Like saying Pippa won't invite Meghan because she's pathologically jealous of her, or saying her parents are pinching pennies to pay for the wedding. If protecting your image means fighting defamation, I say go for it.

I think this would be a smart way to go about it. With an exclusive, the photographer wouldn't be overly intrusive but yet close enough to get good pictures to share with the public. Donating the proceeds from the sale of the exclusive to one of the couple's favorite charity will be a plus too. The braying masses of paps will be held totally at bay knowing its an "exclusive" and therefore won't infringe on the events. This way everybody wins.

None of those weddings were Pippa's wedding, miss whirley. The media has pretty much invested a lot of reporting about Pippa's relationships. I'm pretty sure some members of the media will want to cover her wedding. The Middleton's and Matthews family know there will be some media presence, especially due to Catherine, William and the possibility of George taking part.

Pippa is a private citizen just like Simon and Adam. Catherine's presence at their weddings didn't give the media free rein to take photos, so your last sentence is nullified. I'm sure many media members would love to cover the wedding, but they don't always get what they want (hence their whining). I'm sure they would of loved if Pippa had done an engagement photoshoot with her fiancé, a la Zara and Mike. She didn't, tough luck to them.

The fact the she choose her wedding location at a small, secluded church on a private estate with private road access, says a lot. It screams "I want privacy". If she had your thought process of, "The media will be at my wedding, so I might as well as embrace them, because their wants come before my own", then I don't believe she would have chosen two such private locales for her wedding and reception.
