Pippa Middleton spent time on a boat in St. Barts with her two favorite Jameses

Pippa Middleton spends time with her family on holiday in St. Barts

I still think that Carole and Michael Middleton went to St. Barts BEFORE Christmas, but they only got pap’d after Christmas. It’s interesting, as I said before, because the Middletons’ holiday plans usually revolve around Kate and William, and I believe that the Middletons have spent Christmas at Anmer Hall for the previous two years. But this year, everybody in the Middleton fam – except Kate – went to St. Barts, to vacation at the Matthews family’s luxury hotel, the Eden Rock. Terribly Moderately Wealthy James Matthews had to deal with his in-laws this year for the holidays. I kind of wonder if this marriage was more than he bargained for.

A few days ago, the paps got photos of James Middleton, James Matthews and Pippa Middleton all hanging out on a boat. Carole was allegedly there too, I think maybe she’s in the background (on the boat) in some of these photos. I don’t have much to say here, honestly. Pippa has a nice, athletic figure. I wonder if she and her husband are trying for a second kid. And of course I know some of you messy, thirsty bitches will be lusting after Lord Marshmallow’s furry chest. All I’ll say is that James has a nice body. He always has had a nice body. But lord, I cannot find him attractive.

As for TMW James Matthews… did you see that conversation on Twitter a week ago about dudes who are undercover ripped? I thought TMW James would be undercover ripped, because he’s so athletic, etc. But he’s really… not. I mean, he’s fine. But my expectations were different! Also, can you see how the Middleton sisters have a type? I’ve never seen that before now, but wow, TMW James and Prince William do seem to have a similar look/vibe/energy.

    Pippa looks amazing post baby. That’s all I’ve got.

  2. MrsBump says:

    Damn Pippa looks incredible, my never-had-a-baby body wishes it looked as good.

  3. runcmc says:

    I honestly think Pippa is exactly the catch Janes wanted. Vacationing with in-laws isn’t the end of the world, and for all said Carole and Michael do seem like nice people. Also I really doubt Carole is anywhere near as involved with Pippa’s little family as she is with Kate’s.

    Seriously I would loooove to have Pippa’s lifestyle…all of the wealth and privilege, none (or not as much) of the scrutiny.

    • Nic919 says:

      His dad still has pending rape charges relating to an underage girl so the Middletons are looking pretty good at this point.

      • Lexa says:

        I was just going to say that, Nic919!

        For all their faults and missteps, the Middletons seem like enjoyable company for the most part, and a supportive of one another. Carole, in particular, has been described as fun to be around in social situations and Mike seems fairly chill. I doubt they spend every moment of vacation with one another, which would help greatly.

  4. Seraphina says:

    Pippa looks great post baby and it’s thanks to the gene pool. Kate has a trim body too but not as long and athletic as her sister’s. I have to fight for the shape I have and it’s no where near that. NO WHERE NEAR THAT.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Well, its genes plus the Middleton women can and do put a massive investment of time and money into maintaining great physical fitness. Not shading them for it but that’s their thing

      • Kristina says:

        I think you’re totally right- nature AND nurture. I know lots of families like that- they are naturally lean, but the whole family is also very active and fairly good on a healthy diet, and pass all of that down as each new generations comes up.

      • Seraphina says:

        Agreed, time, money and genes.

    • duuu says:

      Dude her “genes” are that she runs marathons

  5. Lucy says:

    TMW!James does look better like this, IMO. Swim trunks and wet hair suit him. Not being snarky. Also, I love Pippa’s bathing suit.

  6. Becks1 says:

    Yeah, Pippa does look great. We know she kept fit throughout her pregnancy so I’m not surprised she looks this good now.

  7. Miriam says:

    Their type is £££££! I agree James and bill look alike and I think James middle name is William too!!!
    They went to st barts last year too. I figured as the Middleton business is struggling they’re DESPERATE to mingle with RICH people who go there this time of the year(I last read Leonardo DiCaprio is there with his 22yrs old gf! As was jeff Bezos!)

  8. Lili says:

    I want Pippa’s life.

  9. vanna says:

    Yes, Pippa looks amazing especially so soon after having a baby. But these shots only reinforce my opinion that the hype around Pippa’s backside was pointless. While nice enough, it’s not her best feature and definitely not worth the many articles and comments it spanned.

  10. Elisa says:

    she does look great and IMO it’s good genes and doing lots of sports. I saw some pics of Carole in a bikini and their legs look almost the same.

  11. YaGotMe says:

    I think James Middleton is hot and I sooo would. What I did not know was that I am messy and thirsty. Ya learn something new every day 😜

    • Originaltessa says:

      He’s an attractive guy. Has a Jude Law thing going on. You’re not crazy. The Middletons are a good looking bunch. Pippa is the “ugly” one, and she’s pretty darn attractive by most standards.

      • Dani says:

        I always say the Jude Law comparison!!! He looks like his younger, equally disastrous little brother!

    • kerwood says:

      Shame about those ‘Nazi’ marshmallows. But when you’re a ‘hot’ White man, you can get away with a lot.

      • LP says:

        Same with TMWJames’s dad’s r*pe allegations- always seemed credible to me but gee, they just went away 🙄

      • Nic919 says:

        The charges are still being investigated in France. They aren’t gone yet. It’s a historical rape charge so it is probably more difficult to get witnesses.

    • frenchtoast says:

      look at his younger pictures. It will quench your thirst.

    • Joanna says:

      I think he’s hot. I am messy but not thirsty. 😊 not excusing anything he’s done, etc, just saying he is hot.

  12. Maria says:

    The pics of her frolicking in the ocean compared to the pics of Kate tensely doing the Christmas walk. Wow. I can definitely tell you where I’d rather be!

  13. Lisa says:

    Pippa looks good.

  14. Mego says:

    I think poor Pippa is very plain looking and the telephoto lens doesn’t do her any favours. These pics are an invasion of privacy.

    • Rhys says:

      Just goes to show that looks aren’t everything, right? I mean, she’s got it all – the family, the money, the privilege, the privacy. She’s got it so much better than her sister. Pippa is a perfect example of what being lucky means.

      Does anyone think that James Matthews is richer than Will?

      • Dani says:

        He probably is richer, and if he’s not, he will be soon enough. There’s only so much the Royals can make whereas Eden Roc is a huge luxury chain which will eventually be almost all his.

    • Tourmaline says:

      I think Pippa is rather sun damaged and prematurely aged in part from decades of outdoor athletic endeavors and tanning. Her face isn’t especially pretty but she has that in common with her mother

    • Kristina says:

      I think Pippa is adorable- she has the cutest smile and seems kind. It’s probably because she looks so much like twin friends of mine 🙂

  15. florencia says:

    Well, at least the the Middletons are not the Markles. That’s definitely something more than Harry bargained for.

    • Silas says:

      So defensive. Lol.

      But yes, Kate was lucky to not have an abusive father and siblings. And I’m impressed by what a source of strength and support Harry has been for Meghan.

    • Rhys says:

      It sucks but it is true, we can’t control who is our blood family. Meghan made what she could of it, in any case.

    • February Pisces says:

      I think Meghan is very lucky to have Doria. She seems to keep out of all of this and doesn’t seem like the sort to scheme and collude with reporters the same way ma Middleton does. I think Michael is more like Doria in that he keeps himself to himself. But I think kate needs someone like ma Middleton who basically manages her daughters life. That mother is a hustler but she has got her daughters living an A-lister lifestyle without having to do a days work themselves so I can’t get mad at that.

    • Royalwatcher says:

      Yes and so are the backstabbing Windsors/Cambridges more than Harry bargained for!! I’m sure he thought his wife would get the same level of respect and support that Kate got – and that Harry himself gave to Kate – when she joined the family. Harry was very welcoming to Kate in the early years and got nothing back from his brother (or Kate herself!!) toward Meghan.

      If anything, I think he’d be more disappointed, sad, angry, etc. at his own family treating his wife as she’s been treated rather than the Toxic White Markles. JMO though…

  16. Sunshine says:

    This is the second year in a row they have given the paps/tabloids access to their holiday. I wonder what the Middleton’s are getting in return? Hmmmmm

    • Tourmaline says:

      I don’t know that they can control the paps at St Barth’s? It’s not a private island like Mustique. And Pippa’s inlaws Vogue and Spencer are basically reality stars who love paps.
      I’m sure lifetime free access to Eden Rock luxury properties for her fam is but one of the benefits of Pippa’s marriage into the Matthews clan

  17. grumpy says:

    James’ brother Spencer and his wife and kid are also in St Barts and posting on Insta so I’m surprised there are no photos of them all hanging out together. Spencer and Vogue always seem like good fun based on their tv show.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      There were a couple of pics of Pips and Venus running. And one of all of them on a boat (helping Carole, who was in the water, into the boat).

      In a Russian “Hello” or some such rag, we also got our first glimpse of Arthur! He has his grandpa Mike’s “Middleton eyes”, and he and Louis have the SAME eyebrows!

    • Tourmaline says:

      I saw part of Vogue and Spencer’s tv show once and was surprised that they are actually kind of likable together, she comes off as a fun girl to hang out with.

  18. MrsPanda says:

    Her face looks very taut, I thought she was Demi Moore in that first photo. She’s had some tightening up, maybe a mid-face lift. She’s got an amazing figure, so athletic!

  19. Liz version 700 says:

    Pippa reminds me of how Kate looked before royal life. Healthy and slim but not rail thin. I wonder how much Kate diets to be so much thinner now. I agree Pippa has the life. All the fun half the stress.

  20. Rhys says:

    She does have a type. Whatever happened to Nico Jackson, by the way? Anyone knows if he is married with kids now or whatever?

  21. Charfromdarock says:

    I’m sure each couple has their own suite, it isn’t like they are sharing a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom house. Money makes vacationing with family much more tolerable.

  22. L4frimaire says:

    Pippa is super lean and fit, but seems very healthy. James Middleton looks so much like Kate, he’s has a furry version of her face. Seems like they all had a lot more fun than sister Kate. Wonder why they were so public about their Middleton family Christmas, very much apart from the Royals. If they wanted to be more private, they could have been.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      Agreed. There was a whole article devoted to Carole’s bikini body. This was a pap vacation. Maybe the papa are owed favors for sugary stories of Future Queen Kate? Or maybe the Mids need publicity for their business?

  23. NewKay says:

    This thread reinforces for me the idea that people prefer thinness over beauty. I understand the two aren’t mutually exclusive – but she’s being praised for being thin. She looks way to skinny in my opinion- unhealthily so. Also she has her mothers face.

    • Joanna says:


    • MrsBump says:

      Beauty is subjective.
      However it is pretty obvious that she is fit and strong, not simply skinny as you dismissively say. The girl has ran plenty of marathons for charity so it’s fair to say she’s more athletic than most.
      Also it’s a worrying sign of the rampant obesity levels that someone like pippa with a very healthy body is called unhealthily skinny.

    • Marigold says:

      I don’t think she looks too thin at all. She could never maintain that beautiful muscle mass she’s rocking if she were undernourished. She has worked very hard to maintain that muscle, and she comes from naturally lean genes.

      And all these people saying she’s not pretty — you’ve gotta be kidding. I mean, I know it’s all subjective, but she’s a Jennifer Garner type. She’s a brunette girl next door with an enviable figure. I mean, she’s rich and privileged and all of that, but there’s no amount of money that can buy muscle mass like that. Girl earned it…and she wouldn’t have it if she wasn’t eating.

  24. Jejej says:

    James, in person, looks , um , like I have honestly never seen anyone take such a good picture and be the opposite in person. He almost …almost looked … deformed. But yes his photos betray that.he is also short and stares yet scans a room constantly..hes confident but not … only spoke to men at the event I saw him at.

  25. Miriam says:

    Omg😖 @MARIGOLD please dont insult Jennifer Garner like that! Pippa is like her mother plain looking. The excessive sunbathing WITHOUT cream+smoking isn’t helping her either. She is privileged. She spends her life maintaining her weight through 24/7 exercising and dieting. I would do the same if I didn’t have to work!

    • Marigold says:

      LOL! Fair enough, Miriam. 🙂

      I just always thought she was adorable. I know a lot of people disagree.

  26. Minxx says:

    Have you seen Pippa’s baby? He’s all kinds of adorable. I have to give it to Carol..she managed to move up in the society and secure incredible lifestyles for her kids. I don’t begrudge it, she hustled very hard for all of it.
