Kate Middleton is reportedly angry at her sister Pippa for publicly comparing her backside to Kim Kardashian, which the Duchess of Cambridge reportedly thought was a comparison beneath the royal family.
Pippa made the comparison while writing for the weekly political magazine Spectator. Pippa wrote that she came across Kim Kardashian’s racy photo shoot for Paper Magazine, saying that her own famous backside doesn’t compare at all to Kim’s.
Pippa wrote the following.
“The ‘Rear of 2014′ award undoubtedly goes to Kim Kardashian, after her posterior exploded all over the internet last month. I must say that mine — though it has enjoyed fleeting fame — is not comparable. But the Kim butt story did make me pause. What is it with American booty culture? It seems to me to be a form of obsession. Kim’s aim, apparently, was to break the internet, but I’m not sure she’s going the right way about it.”
The comparison reportedly didn’t sit well with Kate Middleton, who believed that Pippa shouldn’t be inviting comparisons with the reality television star.
This isn’t the first time that Kate has reportedly gotten upset with her sister. Another recent report noted that Kate was worried about Pippa’s attempt to land an on-air gig with the Today show, believing that Pippa might spill secrets about the royal family.
And back when Kate Middleton was pregnant with Prince George, reports claimed that she and Prince William had to ask Pippa to cut back on her public appearances. Kate was reportedly worried that Pippa was opening up the royal family for criticism, and that Kate was particularly defensive given the nude photos that had been released just months before that.
“Kate and William didn’t want her to write her party planning book Celebrate, let alone a regular column in various magazines,” a source told the Daily Mail. “They have spoken to her about this.”
Kate Middleton may be a little too late in trying to rein in Pippa. The remarks on Kim Kardahsian have already spread across the internet, leading to some criticism of Pippa for making the comparison.
