Is Prince William “secretly” in love with his sister-in-law, Pippa Middleton?

This National Enquirer story is maybe one of my favorite stories of the year. I’m not saying it’s the truthiest or the most believable, because it’s totally not. It’s just an enjoyable piece of pure fiction that I absolutely loved. According to the Enquirer’s sources, Prince William is secretly in love with his wife’s sister, Pippa Middleton. William and Pippa. OMG.

Prince William is secretly in love with his wife’s stunning sister, Pippa Middleton – and insiders say the explosive scandal could take down the British monarchy once and for all! Pippa has been invited to join the royal family at the country estate of Sadringham Palace for Christmas as a guest of William and Kate’s for his younger brother Harry, but royal insiders reveal that it’s all a big sham. They claim it was William who orchestrated the whole affair – just so he can have Pippa around!

Insiders claims Kate has no idea her new husband is harboring such deep feelings for her sister, and that if she did, their eight-month marriage would be over.

“William has fallen hard for Pippa. He can’t take his eyes off her,” one insider told The Enquirer. “William is just using Harry as a smokescreen so he can have Pippa close by.”

Sources close to William divulged that William often fantasizes about Pippa, marveling: “My God, she’s so beautiful!” [Editor’s note: Srsly?]

“Kate would be beyond furious if she knew what was really going on! This could end up in divorce… Prince William now realizes he’s had a long, deep-seated love for his wife’s sister.”

Just weeks before William and Kate got married, some “racy” photos of Pippa were released on the Internet. Kate was “outraged” and immediately reprimanded her younger sibling. “But William LOVED the pictures,” insisted the insider. “They were fuel for his fantasies. He’s asked himself time and again, ‘Did I marry the wrong sister?’”

“Is this Pippa thing goes any further it could bring down the monarchy,” wanred another source. “Unless William lets go of his infatuation he could create the biggest royal scandal in recent history. Right now Pippa is his fantasy woman. We can only pray he comes to his senses and keeps it that way.”

[From The Enquirer, print edition]

Yes, this entire article was full of euphemisms for “Prince William jerks off to photos of his sister-in-law.” Excuse me, his “beautiful” (??) sister-in-law. I mean… on one side, poor Kate. She’s the pretty sister! Pippa is the ambitious sister, and Kate is the pretty one, the one with the motherlode of patience and a frightening lack of ambition. That being said, I could see why a dude – any dude, really – might prefer Pippa’s company over Kate’s. Pippa is Forever Uptradey, true, but she seems bright, opinionated, and loads more interesting than Kate. Pippa starts a conversation and dominates it, while Kate just asks, “What would you like to talk about?” and starts blinking furiously.

But seriously, none of this story is true. William wanted a geisha, someone who would know her “place,” someone who would never challenge him, and that’s what he got. I’m sure he’s very happy with his choice, and if he isn’t, he’ll just screw around and Kate will look the other way, just like she did when they were dating. There will be no talk of “divorce.” There will only be “Well, this is what you waited nine years for. Suck it up.”

    Nah, I don’t believe this story either. The media really want to make Pippa into the next big thing don’t they? Meh….she’s very basic and average to me.

    • Faye says:

      I completely agree! I’ve commented on previous articles that I just don’t get her appeal or why the tabloids are trying so hard with her.

      Also, I don’t know either of the sisters or William personally, but my bet is that A) Kate isn’t that boring and she and William are in love. They just have that look to them of a long term happy couple, IMO. B) Pippa has been in Will’s life as long as Kate has, I’m sure, since it’s typical to get to know the siblings of your significant other. I’m sure he has feelings for Pippa, but not I WANNA DO YOU feelings, more like a regular closeness.

      My two cents. I may be way off base, but those are my general observations based off of knowing none of these people.

  2. Love Angie. says:

    Oh well! he can fantasize himself as Pipa’s tampon.

  3. Zay says:

    Hahahahaa awesome, send this fiction writer to script the Kardashian show, would make them more believable and I would watch it..Pure Gold!!

    Ps: BS story

    Wouldn’t it be fun if this story were true? Great way to end the year though.

  5. Aria says:

    Lol! The story is amazing!
    Pippa is not pretty.She looks like a man wearing a dress. Kate is prettier and more femenine. Who would choose Pippa over Kate? Pippa is the ugly sister with a killer wardrobe. That’s all!

  6. Emily says:

    Yay!!! A Pippa story! :D

    The media needs to accept that she’s not going to get with the princes. She’s not boring enough for William, and she’s not blonde enough for Harry.

    …she COULD however marry the future Duke of Northumberland and live at Hogwarts. (For serious, his family Owns. Hogwarts. When I found that out, suddenly her uptrady-ness made perfect sense!!)

  7. Christine says:

    This story is fabulous. I can only hope a similar Story with Harry/Kate happens after they spend their first Christmas together!

  8. Nate says:

    Seriously, I don’t see the appeal of that girl, I doubt that she is soooo fatal that every dude wants to be with her. Also not every royalty has to be screwed up and secretly lust for their sister-in law.

  9. GoodCapon says:

    What a load of codswallop.

  10. Cathy says:

    lol, thanks for the good morning laugh.

  11. ken says:

    I really don’t see what’s the big deal about Pippa.. Kate is so much hotter than Pippa.. Kate’s problem is that she appears so frigid and reserved in most of her pics, but I bet you behind closed doors, she’s an animal.

  12. ruby says:

    Loved this story. Not trying to be sycophantic but you couldn’t have put it better. I’m looking forwards to the next installments, I get the feeling we’ll be hearing about the royals for a long time.

  13. melmel says:

    Not to sound naive, but Wills was playing around on the side while he was dating Kate. For some reason I find that hard to believe, maybe because he has a receding hairline? But I think having Pippa at the Christmas shinding could spice things up

  14. diana says:

    I’m wondering if the Palace will issue a statement saying it’s not true. After the scar the sis in law…yay!….such solid stories for the royal staff to deal with. i bet they get at their jobs in the morning and start banging their heads to the wall in despair.

    blinking furiously hahaha

  15. K says:

    I think Pippa is pretty. Not so much for her individual features, but the whole package. Looks, personality, attitude. She would be WAY more fun than Kate. ITA Kate is geisha-like hunk of wood.

  16. Zvonk says:

    The Queen doesn’t allow in-laws to attend “the firm” Christmas. So highly unlikely that this is true.

  17. DarkEmpress says:

    Yeah, I do not believe this. I think the tabloids are fantasising about history repeating, where Kate is Mary Boleyn and Pippa is Anne.

  18. mika says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHA Hilarious Fiction!

    I love that Kaiser isn’t squeeing over the Will and Kate stuff. Other bloggers *cough cough Lainey* could learn.

  19. Anon says:

    So funny and not believable at all. For the record count me as another one that believes Kate is far prettier than Pippa. I think Kate is not as dull as some would like us to think. Dean Piper, a Brit gossip columnist who in the past has ‘hung’ around in the same clubs has claimed that Kate’s far more interesting and better to have a conversation with than Pippa.

  20. MellaYella says:

    Kate looks four times better than her sister but his father liked a woman that wasn’t even as attractive as Princess Diana toes nails.. So who knows..

  21. Laura says:

    Ugh! I’m sorry but if Pippa came from a poor family, everyone would say “poor thing, she’s had a rough life.” She looks like a 40 something divorcee who smokes a pack a day!

  22. Sharon says:

    I don’t believe this story either. I followed Diana and have read over 250 books on her and the royals. Diana made it known that the family get-togethers at Sandringham and Balmoral were lonely and boring for her since she could never invite her family to the royal’s Christmas. Diana leaned on William and told him everything about her marriage. William doesn’t want Kate to go through what his mother went through. I also read that he made sure Kate had some counseling in the last couple years to help her cope, so he is doing everything he can to help her to transition. Plus William has his one brother Harry and understands why she would want her sister with her.

  23. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    I think Kate is lonely, none of the royal family has befriended her, and thus William (or whoever makes the decisions for the royal family) invites Pippa to serve as a substitute friend.

    I think it’s great the sisters seem very close. I also think it’s sad and that Kate really doesn’t have any friends, and must be lonely.

    • Sachi says:

      If Kate has no real friends, whose fault is that? She’s done nothing for the past 10 years but wait around for William and be at his beck and call. She has sacrificed a decade of her life, years when she could have been developing lasting friendships, independence, and her identity. But no, the call of wealth and title were worth more and she has molded herself to what William wants her to be.

      So now she has no real friends. That’s the price you gotta pay, no? I’m sure she’s not crying into the sheets that cost thousands of $$$ while renovating the Kengsington rooms for her and William (cost of the renovation is about $3 million by the way, thank you taxpayers!).

    • Anne says:

      No one it the royal family befriended her? Based on what I have seen she seems to get along with Prince Harry. And she looked comfortable with others who have married in to the royal family on Remembrance Day.

  24. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Oh, and I also think Pippa is paying a PR firm to make up these stupid stories and keep her name in the press.

  25. anne_000 says:

    What’s so special about the Middleton sisters? They don’t have a professional career. Yes, I know Pippa writes an article describing party items & ideas for her family’s party supply co., but that’s not really a professional career is it? Though they went to university, I don’t think either of them came out with a usable degree. They don’t seem to be witty & charming. They’re not beauties. They don’t seem to be really fun people to hang around with. They don’t have a pedigree.

    What sets them apart from the other women? Imo, nothing.

  26. Kara Ann says:

    One of the things that I find admirable about Kate is her seeming devotion to her family esp. her sister. I have similar relationships with my sisters and I wouldn’t trade them for all of the “friends” in the world. Lastly, I believe that the royal family (or maybe just William) have learned alot from their past mistakes i.e. expecting spouses to give up normal ties to their families. Good for them ( or him) whichever.

  27. Claudia says:

    Ha! Kaiser, you’re on a roll (…pun? oh no~!). I love your ending comments on this and the Angelina/Anderson post. Too funny :)

  28. NYC_girl says:

    I love the Brits, but hate the name “Pippa.”

  29. Kim says:

    He would have just married Pippa then. Her & her sister are pretty much the same person except i think Kate is prettier.

  30. theaPie says:

    As we WELL know, prettiness has nothing to do with anything. Remember, Prince Charles preferred Camilla over Diana…

    And that’s all I have to say about that.

  31. Cerulean says:

    These sisters are a dud. A big lead balloon. That Isabella girl would have been a better choice for the campaign to keep the monarchy relevant. She’s obviously smart. She rebuffed Wills in favor of her freedom and privacy. No lap dog life for her.

  32. JaneWonderfalls says:

    It might be true, it seems the media is very intrigued more with Pippa than Kate.

  33. Sachi says:

    I’ll give Pippa this: I think she’s very plain, even ugly in some photos, and her style is mediocre. The media fawning over her and trying to make her ‘happen’ is getting so annoying.

    But she has a gleam in her eye that suggests she’s most likely fun to be with. She doesn’t seem boring or dull, and as much as I think she’s a big media whore and a social climber/gold digger, she seems like she has a lot to say and speaks her mind.

    That being said, I don’t believe William is “in love” with Pippa. If he were, he would have tried to hook up with her in the years Kate had spent waiting around for him.

    And going back to Pippa speaking her mind, that is the reason I don’t believe this story is true. Pippa might be too much for William.

    William is like his father, in that he wants what he wants and people will have to get in line with his desires. That includes a wife who is like a mother/nanny to him and whose world revolves around him.

    I can’t imagine Pippa going all, “William, are you happy? What would you like to do? Where would you like to go? You don’t like short hair? Okay, I’ll keep my hair this long for the next 10 years. You like my eyes with raccoon makeup? Done! Anything you want, dear.”

    Pippa won’t make puppy eyes at William and follow him around. If they were a couple, I imagine it would be like:

    William: “Pippa, I think staying home tonight would be a great idea.”
    Pippa: “Oh, okay. I’ll see you at midnight when I come back from girls’ night out. Don’t wait up. Bye!”

    Kate is the only woman willing to do all those things and have her life run on William’s schedule and needs. She is the perfect Stepfor/trophy wife/eye candy. She’s there to be trotted around to look pretty.

    Pippa isn’t pretty, but she probably has a fun personality. And many men prefer a fun, adventurous woman to the dull, “I’ll do anything for you” type.

    • diana says:

      Agree on all accounts.

      One of the women I worked with had a very hilarious question about Kate: Did they breed her so her hair won’t fall out? Just like they do with dogs? So they don’t shed too much? Hahaha…after that all I could picture in my head is Queen throwing her shoe away and ask Kate to pick it up and bring it to her.

      I must admit. She does have all the attributes of a perfect loving dog who will leak your toes you no matter how terrible/good you are to them. Except…she is NOT a dog.

  34. A~ says:

    Pippa has a nice ass. That’s all I know about her.

  35. whatevs says:

    stop trying to make pippa happen. she’ll never happen.

  36. JulieM says:

    What a perfectly delicious BS story. I love it. Wish I could believe it.

    Poor Waity. She “worked” 10 years for this. Pathetic.

  37. Luise says:

    Does anyone realize that the Pippster looks a lot like Wallis Warfield Simpson aka The Duchess of Windsor. Wallis was one of the ugliest women ever but did have great style.

  38. Annachristoff says:

    The cattiness towards Kate around here is pretty ugly, indeed. She is not a person of too much interest to me, but all this business about “waity” and acting like a dog and being so subservient to Prince WIliam and the rest of it…blah blah blah…But here’s the thing: She got him. She got her Prince. He could propose to ANY woman in the world and he chose her. And you know what–part of getting and keeping your guy is being smart and playing a bit of the nurturer geisha at times. And I say this as a triple-degreed Ivy league graduate and professional career woman.

    The women here sound as if they are truly envious. Sad.

    • JulieM says:

      Annachristoff with the three Ivy-League Degrees: Waity got her prince because no one else wanted him. Envious? Not hardly.

      Is that what they are teaching in the Ivy League now? Geisha Lessons?

    • GoodCapon says:

      You obviously do not know the history of Will & Kate’s relationship. He wanted other women, they didn’t want him and the baggage that comes with being the future heir.

      I suggest you read more about their history than go about spouting crap like this. Your education certainly didn’t help you this time and sadly, your comment makes you sound ignorant.

  39. Shay Kay says:

    You know we’re gonna read about how Prince Harry in a drunken stooper ended up sleeping with Pippa and/or Kate during this family Christmas don’t you?
    BTW Can I be a “source” because I heard (right after I said it aloud) that Prince William is desperate to see Jecca Craig just one more time so that he can “reveal” that he now knows she is his One True Love.I also heard (again after I said it aloud) that Jecca only cancelled her wedding in the eleventh hour because she was hoping Prince William would turn his back on the monarchy and move to Kenya with her and her family.

  40. Gigi says:

    I don’t understand why people are still trying to make butterface Pippa happen. Seriously. She’s barely got half the charm and looks of Kate. I am so tired of these almost daily images of her walking about with the most blah expression on her face.

  41. Ami says:

    Come on! Kate is prettier and more regal than Pippa.Yes.. Pippa is sophisticated and attractive,but no great beauty, it is the media that made her out to be something extra-ordinary. She is over-rated.

  42. Victoria says:

    His receding hairline would keep me away from him! It’ snot me being shallow, I just bald patches scare me and then what about the children, they’ll be cursed with Windsor inbred genes and’ll be bald by the time they are 20. Then I would never be able to look at them .LOL.

  43. iseepinkelefants says:

    Oh please if this were true Waity’s so submissive she’d probably go along with it. With her mother’s encouragement. They are the new Boleyns afterall.

    I can see William wanting Pippa. She’s the complete opposite of Waity (personality wise) and he probably wants something more fiery. Waity’s good for appearances but probably isn’t very fun in private. She’s TOO vapid and empty and probably is hard pressed for interesting conversation. There’s just nothing there.

    And now that she has her catch she probably isn’t doing all that she was before. Being his little doormat, fulfilling all of his desires (if this bland vanilla ever did that), etc.

  44. eternalcanadian says:

    Whoa, somehow I’m reminded of another prince who married a pretty princess only to end up with a rather plain looking duchess. :o

  45. Dani says:

    For those saying that Pippa looks 40 something, then you must know some young looking, very attractive 40 year olds. Pippa is very pretty, easily one of the prettiest chicks to have come out of England these past few years.

    In fact, all the Middleton women are pretty. They have great genes.

  46. Ja says:

    For an office chick, Pippa’s skirts are always too short. I don’t mean to be a prude but if I wore those no one in the office would ever take me seriously. Then again, Pippa probably doesn’t really work, she just catwalks in and out of the City everyday.

  47. Jenny says:

    I’ve seen both the Middleton sisters in the flesh and yes, Kate is more conventionally pretty than Pippa, but Pippa is actually a very attractive girl in real life. I saw them walking together and the most noticeable thing was their height difference, as Kate is much taller than her sister. What struck me though was how animated Pippa looked, she had a lively look about her while Kate looked rather tired and dare I say it quite vacant. They do look very alike facially though and both look like the photos I’ve seen of their mother.

    I don’t believe for a minute that William is interested in Pippa as anything other than a sister-in-law. I’ve heard people say Pippa would have been a better choice than Kate as she’s the type to get stuck in, to make things happen, whereas Kate is more passive, but I don’t think William is the type of man to want a wife who’ll set the world on fire. He has a reputation for moodiness and abruptness and wanting his own way, so I suppose a more passive wife who’ll just smile and look pretty fits the bill. Diana was too fiery for Charles, he preferred the more accommodating Camilla who didn’t challenge him, so I guess William has inherited that side of his father’s nature. I think Pippa could be fiery and adventurous and wouldn’t be content to be a tame bird in a gilded cage. I think Harry with probably marry a more spirited girl, he seems to like a challenge – maybe he should be thinking of Pippa? :)

  48. Denise says:

    Kate and William are match made in heaven. I was a BBC special of them on television and William really does love Kate, I can tell by his body language. It’s obvious he loves her more than the other women he dated and (I have too much time on my hands today) they don’t campare.I looked them up on Google… Kate is the most beautiful on the inside and out. And for those who are saying that she is being a “cater to her man” type – Well I mean, how else are you supposed to treat a prince?
