It appears that Pippa Middeton’s topless photos may have cost her the job of a lifetime –that of lady-in-waiting for her sister, Princess Kate, according to Hollywood Life .
It was originally reported that Kate Middleton, aka Princess Kate, planned to appoint her sister, Pippa to fill the official position of lady-in-waiting– a sort of royal confidante/personal secretary/ executive assistant.
Now it looks like this will not be the case.
Hollywood Life now reports that Kate has decided to hold off on appointing her sister Pippa, or anyone else, as her lady-in-waiting for the time being, preferring to go it alone on her first official tour with Prince William.
All the controversy surrounding Pippa Middleton’s topless photos may be the reason Kate Middleton shut Pippa out – at least for now. See Links to Pippa Middleton’s Topless Pictures + 10 Things You Should Know.
Did Pippa’s Topless Photos Make Kate Change Her Mind
Rumors that Pippa Middleton would be appointed as her sister’s lady-in-waiting first began circulating when Carole and Michael Middleton posted an online help wanted ad to fill a position that sounded suspiciously similar to the position Pippa held in the family business, Party Pieces.
Supposedly this would leave Pippa free to accept the lady-in-waiting job.
Now rumor has it that all the uproar caused by Pippa’s topless photos may have cost her the lady-in-waiting gig. See Pippa’s Topless Photos Disappoint those Who See Them – See for Yourself.
On Prince William’s and Princess Kate’s first official tour to Canada and California in a few weeks, there will be no lady-in-waiting to accompany Kate.
The official reason, according to the Daily Mail, is that Kate wants to see how well she can cope without a lady-in-waiting in tow. The spot remains open for now.
But is that really the case?
Others maintain that Kate’s embarrassment over her sister’s topless pictures, is the real reason Pippa won’t be there.
Word is that Pippa’s topless photos caused such a stir that Kate is reluctant to take the risk.
Both the Middletons and the Royal Family are said to be absolutely mortified over the $5 million offer Pippa received from a major porn producer to star in one adult video scene with the sex partner of her choice. See Producer Offers Pippa Middleton $5 Million to Star in Sex Tape
The company, Vivid Entertainment, which produces sex tapes of celebrity mistresses and other high profile women, probably has high hopes that Pippa Middleton will accept their offer to become the next big porn star, now that she’s been passed over for the lady-in-waiting spot.
The Middletons Should Have Kept Their Complaint Low Key
If it’s true that the topless photos of Pippa cost her the lady-in-waiting spot, part of the problem may stem from the way the Middletons handled the situation.
Pippa’s parents may have felt justified in filing a formal complaint about the media’s use of the pictures Pippa and Kate Middleton in their bikinis, but has turned out to be a case of “much ado about nothing.”
Not only were the pictures in question 5 years old, and had already been posted on the Internet years ago, they were not really “topless” in the true sense of the word, as many curious Internet searchers soon found out. See Pippa’s Topless Photos Disappoint those Who See Them – See for Yourself.
The complaint filed by Carole and Michael Middleton, and their futile efforts to purge Pippa’s pictures from the Internet only served to pique the public interest about the so “topless” photos and keep them in the news. See Pippa’s Topless Photos Disappoint those Who See Them – See for Yourself.
Had the Middletons handled the matter quietly and behind the scenes, instead blowing things out of proportion, Pippa’s pictures might have died a natural death.
Now Pippa’s photos are an object of curiosity, and are more widely circulated on the Internet than before.
Were Pippa’s Topless Pictures Really that Bad?

Had the Middletons been less vocal in their protests, the whole matter of Pippa’s not-really-topless pictures would have probably just faded away
If the rumors are true that Pippa Middleton’s not-so-topless pictures cost her the lady-in-waiting job, it’s truly a shame, but her parents must bear some of the blame.
