Mere days after reports began surfacing that Kate Middleton and her sister, Pippa, are at odds over Kate’s royal spotlight affecting her younger sister and the Duchess’ lack of motivation to assist Pippa in making a success out of her endeavors, new claims have begun making the rounds that Kate is bringing Pippa into business with her.
Earlier this week, news broke that the Duchess of Cambridge is set to embark on beginning her own organic food brand due to becoming extremely passionate about serving her two little ones — George, 2, and Charlotte, 5 months — wholesome and nutritious foods. She, herself, has been heavily influenced by her younger sister, Pippa, in regards to keeping her selections healthy for herself and her family. Pippa is a fitness enthusiast who also ensures to eat a balanced and nutrients-rich diet. The younger Middleton reportedly helps Kate to select the foods she purchases and the recipes she uses to prepare meals for George and Charlotte.
Seeing as Pippa is so knowledgeable about all things health related, it would only make sense for Kate to appease and relieve any tension or hard feelings brewing between she and Pippa by bringing her younger sister on board for her new organic food endeavor.
The Daily Mail recently relayed words of a source who shared the intended plans the Duchess has for getting the new business up and running.
“It’s a concept for now but it will happen – just give it 18 months or so. And it’s natural that it should do so. One day Prince William will want to have a profitable business attached to his estate to generate funds – both charitable and otherwise – just like his father does. It’s also important for William to promote his home, Norfolk, in the same way that Charles promotes Cornwall with the Duchy range. You can just imagine the labeling – ‘home-grown organic produce from Norfolk, home of Prince William.’ “
As for the supposed feelings of inadequacy Pippa has felt as of late, after her attempts at certain projects did not really pan out, and after apparently being a bit annoyed with Kate for not helping with publicity of her work, her mood is sure to change as Kate is now reportedly “loosely” partnering with Pippa on the organic food line. Starpulse relays the possible involvement that Pippa will have in it all.
“[T]he duchess’s sister, Pippa, may also be a part of the business. She is training to be a nutritionist and is ‘loosely involved’ in the process. It makes sense, if it’s true. Pippa has been struggling with her career. Her book, ‘Celebrate,’ was a flop, and no one is interested in her diet and exercise book, ‘#PippaTips.’ The sisters have reportedly developed a “grown-your-own vegetable kit” that will likely be included in what’s being dubbed the Amner Organics range.”
The news of Pippa’s possible involvement in the food line also comes following reports that Kate’s sister may be set on relocating to the U.S., as the Inquisitr noted recently. Middleton is fresh off a break-up from her Swiss banker boyfriend Nico Jackson, and sources were claiming that the beauty was keen on a fresh start that would take her out of the royal limelight.
“[T]he younger of the Middleton sisters has expressed woes about the difficulty she has experienced in finding love while living in England. Many men are reportedly ‘turned off’ by the constant media circus that surrounds Pippa, due to her affiliation with the royals.”
Perhaps her role in the organic food line will end up being taken on in a long-distance form if this news is, in fact, accurate. It certainly must be trying to be in the shadows of an older sibling, yet under a microscope all the same.
