When your sister is a princess, it might be difficult to top her wedding, but Pippa Middleton is going to try! Next Saturday, guests of her nuptials must be prepared to change their ceremony outfits into a completely different reception outfit. You read that correctly; Pippa’s wedding invitation reportedly asks guests to pack two outfits for the wedding.
Pippa’s ceremony is happening at a church, while her reception is set to take place at her parent’s house, so the change in scenery might be the reason behind the unusual request.
It’s likely that Duchess Kate and Prince William will be in attendance because multiple sources have reported that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be the page boy and flower girl. The wedding itself will probably be extravagant considering the fact that Pippa’s engagement ring alone cost an estimated £200,000, not to mention her passion for party planning as seen in her book, “Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends.”
Her fiancé, James Matthews, is a hedge fund manager, former professional racing driver and the heir to the Scottish title of Laird of Glen Affric. He attended Eton College, the same school that both William and Harry attended, although not simultaneously.
