Pippa Middleton & James Matthews stepped out for Cirque du Soleil

Pippa Middleton puts on a stylish display with husband James Matthews as they attend the Cirque du Soleil's 'Luizia' at the Royal Albert Hall

Pippa Middleton and her terribly moderately wealthy husband James Matthews stepped out last night in London for the Cirque du Soleil ‘Luzia’ show opening. It was a pretty big event in London, surprisingly – I thought this kind of event would have been cancelled or postponed, given the post-holiday spikes in Covid cases in Europe, America and around the world? I guess not. And barely anyone wore masks on the red carpet either.

Pippa wore a matching red blouse and trousers which… the ensemble looks fine. I like the fact that Pippa isn’t “dresses only,” and that she often wears jeans, pants and normal-looking clothes. That being said, I don’t think this shade of red is her color, especially with her permanent-orange skin. TMW James looks nice too – I’ve always found him somewhat attractive, and he looks very nice in this suit.

Pippa and James have two kids now, three-year-old Arthur and nine-month-old Grace. Pippa is living the kind of comfortable existence that Kate wishes she could have: married to a rich man who adores her, a comfortable home in London and access to family-owned hotels in beautiful locales. Carole Middleton’s birthday is coming up – do you think Pippa and James will be going down to Mustique for a holiday with the Midds? Will the Cambridges go too? Or have TMW James and Pippa kind of separated themselves from the Keens more these days?

    Lmao, look its the twins 🤣🤣😂

    They both have the same face 🙃

    • Cerise says:

      the resemblance is uncanny 😬

    • Mcmmom says:

      Resembling your spouse is supposed to bode well for the marriage.

      MCMDad and I have the same nose and eyes and people say we look alike. No one is saying I look like a man – they just see the resemblance. I think it’s kind of sweet 🤷🏻‍♀️.

  2. Amy Bee says:

    Remember when Pippa and her mother was leaking to the press that Meghan couldn’t come to her wedding? In hindsight, it was a harbinger of what was to come later.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      Not surprised at the leaking. That should have told us how much of a threat Meghan was to them all. Pippa will always be the less beautiful and less than mediocre Wisteria sister. She’s no Elizabeth Bennett.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Elizabeth Regina: The leaking was a given but as you said Kate and Pippa felt threatened by Meghan even then, when she was just Harry’s girlfriend. Pippa may be the lesser to Kate but she ended up with the better life.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        They have been and will always be jealous of Meghan. Though Pippa chose better, with regards to a husband that apparently loves her and enjoys her company, must eat at Mumbles jealousy over Pippa tremendously!!! Mumbles sees herself as more deserving in every aspect of her life compared to her siblings.

        This certainly doesn’t place a smile of her hyena mouth today, seeing these pictures!! Oh how wonderful for Pippa!!

      • Debbie says:

        Which one is the older sister, Kate or Pippa? They both have extra loose skin in the jaw area and long, pronounced brackets when they smile — I’m not referring to dimples or smile lines but long folds which go all the way down to their jaws.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      I will never forget that. they didn’t want to invite Meghan to the wedding because they were afraid she would steal the spotlight, but she was allowed to accompany Harry to the reception. He had to drive to collect her and bring her, so the paps were sure to get pictures of them en route. This happened before they were even engaged, so you know Keen and the Mids were already feeling threatened by her and were giving her the cold shoulder.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Yes! They were afraid of Meghan stealing Pippa’s spotlight like Pippa’s behind stole Kate’s. The headlines after W & K’s wedding were more about Pippa’s @ss than the wedding. Anyone with good vision recogonizes that Meghan would steal the spotlight. Not because she tries, just because she has that wow factor.

        LOL still at Middleton’s trying to enforce BS protocol. btw, Middleton’s are not royal, no madeup protocol needed to be followed. Had Harry been dating someone considered mousy with no charisma…she’d have been allowed.

        Anyhoo, looks like Pippa is in a better situation than Kate.

    • notasugarhere says:

      During most of the leadup to that wedding, the Midds were leaking like sieves for product placement and freebies for that wedding. And the articles all included mentions of Harry and Meghan, because no one was interested in Pippa. Not only were they yanking Harry’s chain about whether or not Meghan could attend, they were using Meghan to make money.

    • UnionSnack says:

      I truly believe it was Pippa’s “revenge” towards Meg. The whole world know Midds clique was obsessed w/ pippa marrying harry (and later w george percy). So they decided to “punish” Meg this way.

  3. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    My guess is SHE’S happier in her life than her sister is in hers. Sometimes shiny barely covers the tarnish as my Granny used to say.

    • Truthiness says:

      One of the Middleton sisters has a husband still in love with her, there’s a lot of wisdom in that.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      I think they are happy with their arrangement and Pippa appears to be more practical in her expectations of her husband. That’s what happens when the glitter falls off the turd.

    • MF1 says:

      She looks happy and seems like it too, given that she’s no longer clammering for attention in the press the way her sister still is.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ MerlinsMom1018. I love your Granny’s saying!!

      Though, I have admit that I am relishing in the fact that Pippa got what Mumbles McMutton has always wanted and was short sighted in what she actually ended up with. I know that Pippa and her hubby haven’t been married as long, but you can certainly tell that Pippa is perfectly happy in her choice of a husband and is living the life that her sister desperately wanted. Mumbles McMutton thought that SHE won the prize in Baldingham, but oh my, your Granny’s saying is certainly spot on with this pairing, the shiny is certainly NOT covering the tarnish in this scenario!!!

      • Tanya says:

        Pippa has a lot to thank Kate for. Pippa owes her title to Kate. She would have never married a multimillionaire aristocrat with a title if Kate had not lived in humiliation for the past 20 years so she could be Queen one day.

    • Bean says:

      Oh I love that saying!

  4. Noki says:

    She must love the sun,she has aged rapidly. She looks older than Kate.

    • girl_ninja says:

      Kate stopped the sun worshipping where it seems as though Pippa has not. Kate also has her own personal Botox curator on stand by.

    • Alexandria says:

      She has a nice smile and I’ve not seen her guffawing like an idiot. I’ll say she’s more natural and confident even though both love the camera. Also, maybe Pippa’s pap pics are not photoshopped.

    • BeanieBean says:

      No, I don’t think she looks older. I was just thinking the opposite, how much younger than Kate she looks, but she isn’t younger by too many years. She’s adopted her sister’s all-one-color look, too, which is unusual.

    • t'otter says:

      Agreed, I’m surprised that she is the younger one. Makes Kate’s work look good :\

  5. Julia K says:

    Have seen her photographed in this outfit before, art museum opening of something. She looks nice. Not overdone. Glad she married the man who chased after her; they look happy.

  6. Nyro says:

    If someone told me she was sixty years old, I’d believe it.

  7. Chloe says:

    I think the outfit looks fine. A bit stylish even. But my god she sure has aged.

  8. girl_ninja says:

    I remember when people had the nerve to say that Pippa and Meghan looked alike. I was personally insulted. The gall.

    Poor KKKate is missing out on the easy life of doing nothing and not being judged for it.

  9. Sofia says:

    I know she spent years chasing after a title but perhaps she counts her lucky stars that she married James instead. Looking after those estates take work and effort and your bank accounts depend on that but in her marriage, she doesn’t have to put in any more effort than she wants to and she doesn’t have to open her home to strangers so she can keep the lights on.

  10. Over it says:

    Kaiser, I usually agree with you on a lot of things, but I am going to have to question your sanity or taste in men. Terribly moderate wealthy James, is the complete opposite of cute. In fact I would go so far as to say thank goodness he is white and rich.

  11. Margo Smith says:

    Wow, Pippa looks…. older…

  12. Nessa says:

    Meh, I think she looks great. I really love that color on her too. Weird all the comments about her looking aged, are women not supposed to do that? I think she looks like she smiles a lot and doesn’t think about it too much, which is kinda refreshing coming from this botox queen.

    • OriginalLala says:

      Pippa and I are the same age – mid to late 30s is when it starts to become obvious who spent a ton of time in the sun, who smoked for years, who dieted obsessively etc. I stopped sunbathing in my early 20s while my good friend kept sunbathing alot (and still does), it has started to show, big time. I think that’s what people are commenting on

    • girl_ninja says:

      She does not look great. She looks happy to be out with her man but she really put her skin through it with all that tanning. She looks a bit weathered.

  13. Bettyrose says:

    Are they – gasp – holding hands? By choice? Out of genuine affection? It’s almost as though they’re really in love.

  14. Chaine says:

    Dressed so dowdily. This would look lovely and current on her mother, but makes Pippa look like she is in her sixties.

  15. Cat C says:

    They appear to be happy AND enjoying one another’s company. How novel! I find her far more interesting than a Kate.

  16. Red Weather Tiger says:

    I don’t love her outfit…the shoes are too matchy-matchy and remind me of the dyed-to-match bridesmaid shoes we used to get. That said, they look happy, and happiness looks very nice on them.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Agreed. That matchy-matchy thing is more Kate’s style than Pippa’s. They’re enjoying an evening out (and not calling it work!); here’s hoping they’ve got masks for inside.

    • Becks1 says:

      I only like it bc the black coat breaks up the look. I think if she was just walking around in that all-red ensemble I wouldn’t like it that much.

  17. Janey says:

    I really love this outfit, it’s classy and appropriate. He has the longest neck I have ever seen.

  18. Julie says:

    Whenever I think of the Queen stripping Harry of his military honors. etc, I smile thinking how much Pippa looks like the tramp who ruined Uncle David. A constant reminder whenever the Kate family gathers.

    • equality says:

      Ruined Uncle David? I think he did that all on his own. Enough with the woman taking the blame for things men do. I wonder if Wallis was as awful as is put about considering the job the UK media and RF did on Meghan.

      • Julie says:

        Equality – I certainly don’t feel that way, but the so called royals refer to Wallis as “that woman”.

        Really?

      • Talia says:

        Apparently she wasn’t – there are a number of stories who say she was more than happy being the acknowledged mistress and had no desire to marry him, far less become Queen. Edward was apparently the one who was determined she would become his wife. The government / establishment went along with it because ‘King gives up throne for love’ is a lot better than ‘King is a Nazi sympathiser and we don’t trust what is happening to government documents he has access to’.

    • Tessa says:

      They look nothing alike. Wallis was very petite and they have entirely different faces. He was very happy with her. And if Wallis did not want to marry him she could have walked away. I think she did want to marry him and it really was “over” with Simpson.

      • tamsin says:

        When Pippa first began being photographed, I thought she looked quite a bit like Wallace. I think it’s because to me they seem similar around thenthe jaw line, and the angular cast to their faces. I think Pippa is much more attractive than Wallis, but she always gave me an “impression” of Wallis Simpson.

      • RoyalAssassin says:

        They do look alike; not in features so much, on closer look…but very similar at first glance.

  19. Plums says:

    confused on a couple fronts here. why does anyone give a shit about Pippa and James? They’re just rich people. Like, why are they being treated like celebrities? People don’t care about the non-royal in-laws of other royal people. Is it just to juxtapose their normal happily married couple energy to pained, forced non-couple energy of Will and Kate on a red carpet? Like, is Pippa being in the news like this a way to poke at Kate at how much happier her sister is?

    Also, why is the opening of a Cirque du Soleil show a red carpet event? They have a big tent set up in the parking lot of a racetrack whenever they roll through town here. Is it a bigger deal in the UK?

    • BeanieBean says:

      Maybe it’s the venue rather than Cirque? Maybe it’s for charity? OK, just googled. It’s at the Royal Albert Hall & this was a VIP opening.

  20. Beech says:

    Beaniebaby I can’t stop laughing, luckily I wasn’t drinking anything when I read your comment.

  21. Catherine says:

    IMO. James definitely wants no part of being royal adjacent or being an appendage to the Keens. Post marriage, Pippa’s pap PR decreased significantly. And he must have a really tight circle because you never hear anything about his friends or his work. Unlike Edo who clearly is using being royal adjacent to help his business. No coincidence that he announces he’s expanding to Switzerland right before all the York chalet pap shots. And all these recents shots of Beatrice being a mum are set ups for sympathy.

  22. Watson says:

    This ain’t distracting us from Andrew! Good try from the Middletons/royal family/Rota tho!

  23. GreenQueen says:

    Both sisters just weren’t blessed with good skin, and it doesn’t help that they insist on being so thin. A little subcutaneous fat would go a long way.

    Pippa picked better but her in-laws aren’t without drama and legal issues themselves, but they have more perks than cons maybe.

    Meghan still won though, for even though she deals with by far the worst from the racist press and world she got Harry, who seems to have an incredible character. The two of them together are explosive and our modern day reflection of Diana’s service to the people. She, and know they have, held the hands of the underserved, underprivileged and least desirable. They are world changers and I have all the confidence in their ability to achieve.

  24. jferber says:

    Pippa hasn’t aged well. She should invest more in skin care, injectibles or an $83,000 face life. I’m sure she can afford it.

    • Naya says:

      Why should she??? She looks happy and glowing to me. Enough with these crazy expectations to always look young . You’ll look young maximum half of your life and that’s IF you are lucky and/or financially comfortable. What about the other half? Should you be depressed and chasing after unattainable ideas of beauty?

  25. Tanya says:

    Kate is better looking than Pippa. I’ve always thought Pippa was ugly so she should be jealous of beautiful Meghan.

  26. Likeyoucare says:

    Why were they papped?
    They are not celebrities.

  27. Jezz says:

    Ugh, she’s a bore and so is her sister. But I wish you’d do more style stories on the only good Middleton: Alizee Thevenet. Her fashion is the bomb!
