I think the minister in his sermon summed it up for me.
Seriously? What do you mean by 'their position.'
And what's so sad? To the contrary, it seems to me a very happy occasion to rejoice about. In the story you linked earlier, it was clearly stated in the attached video that Kate had 1900 guests at Westminster Abbey in 2011. Pippa has 150 invited guests. I don't see how that comes close to Pippa 'wanting a wedding like her sister's.' It's not like her sister's, but it's going to be special for Pippa. I'm sure that Pippa, Kate, and everyone involved want the day to be special for Pippa and James. All of us spectators on the sidelines have nothing to do with it, so I don't see any reason to get worked up about it in a negative, judgmental way.
The ceremony will take place in the family's church with a reception at the family home and an evening celebration at a nearby estate. No matter what Pippa did, there would be a lot of excessive OTT blather, criticism and innuendo in the media. Some of the reporting is unconfirmed gossip.
Personally, I try to keep an open mind. I realize I don't know everything, and sometimes what we read that's available to us can be strewn with unconfirmed rumors, unsubstantiated gossip, and even made-up trivia, like the 'no-ring, no-bring' storyline that made the rounds when the media had nothing else to write about.
Oh well, try not to be too 'sad' tomorrow @royal_rob, when everyone else directly involved in Pippa's wedding will be having a grand time and a very memorable day. I wish Pippa and James well. Not that they really need my well wishes. I just think that happy occasions should be met with positivity and goodwill.
