I think it's likely George will play a part in his aunts wedding.

Rather strange comment from James Matthews' aunt. Is she confused?

Also, Pippa might be contemplating a winter wedding. Hurrah!

Pippa and James did date prior and then broke up. There were certainly rumors she was engaged to both Alex and Nico at different times. Perhaps his Aunt believed them.

As for the 'source', it could be a site like ours. Too many rumors start becoming 'news'. May end up true but doubt anyone she would have told would talk.

I love the thought of a winter wedding. Maybe they can do as Lady Edith did, and have it on New Year's Eve, when all the decorations are still up!

Ooooooo, I'd love to see a winter wedding. Some of the prettiest weddings I've been to have been near Christmas. Can't wait to see what she decides on.

I forgot about the Matthews scottish estate - i see that as a real possibility to have the reception away from the media.

I understood Philippa's future father-in-law is a Scottish Laird and that means Philippa will become a Lady indeed when her spouse becomes the Laird of Glenafric (Glen Afric). I get such a Monarch of the Glen-vibe.

A winter wedding in Scotland would be wonderful, but why the speculation about the problem with Saturday ? You can get married any day of the week. I got married on a Thursday, no problems booking church, reception , transport, not that that will be an issue for Pippa and James. When ever and where ever, good luck to them.

Yeah, not unless everyone in Scotland who owns land is a laird. The family bought an old estate and turned it into a hotel. Not even Scottish, family is English.


Lady Hay most weddings are weekends as that is when most people are free to attend. Not only the couple, but bridal party and guests may all work. Often people have weekday to cut costs as less guests likely to make it. Especially out of town who may not wish to take days off work for weekday wedding.

Some Scottish estates go with titles. If you buy such estate you recieve a title. Your nationality is unimportant.

If you want you can buy a plot and a title for 30 pounds

Laird in the sense you mean simply means master of an estate. It simply is an honorific tended to be used by emeployees in thee past. In Scottish common law anyone can use whatever title they choose, but that doesn't make them peers. So no, unlike Duc claims, Pippa will not become Lady Philippa when her FIl dies.

I was married 25 years ago, so I do know why most people chose to marry at the weekend. My point was that there are other days available.

well its horses for courses. It is easier to get a booking on non weekend days but for many people it is diffuclt for some of their family/friends to go to a wedding during the week. however that is hardly going to apply to Philippa's circle of friends

I assume he means Lady Surname or Lady Title.. (such as "Lady Spencer")

SHe could not become Lady Philippa unless her father was an earl. however, as you say she's not going to have any "Lady" title because "lairdship" is not a peerage.

You asked why people are so fixated on Saturdays. If you don't want an answer don't ask For a huge society wedding where most guests will work during the week, the weekend is the clear option.

Pippa is in the papers, because people click on the articles and read them.
Those in the DM have generated hundreds of comments.
That's what the press loves to see. And that means there will be a lot more.

If nobody bothered, she wouldn't rate a mention.
It's all supply and demand.

Well, I think everybody, (including me!) loves love, if you know what I mean, and the engagement and wedding of a well known person does generate a lot of clicks.

However, I have to say, most of the time when photos appear of Pippa in the Daily Fail and other tabs, such as when she's at an event or been photographed walking down the street to lunch somewhere, the commentators at the DM and elsewhere tend to come out with things like 'And this is news!' and 'Why are you publicising this person, DM!? ' or insults about her looks. (I'm just quoting what I've observed over the years.)

This also happens when Cressida Bonas appears similarly in the tabloids, though people tend to be a bit more favourable towards someone like Chelsy Davy who was well-liked when she was dating Harry. So, in general, unless it's a specific nice event like this, (her engagement), I'd say that tabloid clickers aren't very kind about Pippa.

I think (to quote an old Rod Stewart lyric) she wears it well... all the critique that is.
I think one of the finest things about Pippa an her immediate family is that they take repeated chucks on the jaw and just keep on keeping on. It shows resilience and maturity, IMO.
