Pippa Middleton Acknowledges Her Famous ‘Bottom’ in New Book: ‘It’s a Bit Startling to Achieve Global Recognition’
Some 18 months after the fairy tale wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton is finally addressing her famous assets the world couldn’t stop talking about.
In her new party-planning book, Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends, the 29-year-old says she’s been overwhelmed with all the attention.
“It’s a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30 on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom,” Middleton writes in the book, according to an excerpt obtained by The Daily Mail.
What else does the party planner reveal in her new book?
Middleton, who currently works for her family business Party Pieces, also acknowledges that some folks might buy her new book just because of her name.
Since her sister’s royal nuptials in April 2011, Middleton, her love life, fashion choices and body image have been common topics for royal enthusiasts and celebrity gossipmongers alike.
“I certainly have opportunities many can only dream of -- but in most ways I’m a typical girl in her 20s trying to forge a career and represent herself in what can sometimes seem rather strange circumstances.”
Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends is published by Viking Adult. The 400-page book arrives in stores Oct. 30.
