Were you one of the supposedly two billion people who tuned in to watch the royal wedding?
I wasn’t. But I did see some of the wedding photos. And I couldn’t help but notice the pretty girl behind Kate Middleton, helping out with that long train.
Who was she? Philippa “Pippa” Middleton, Kate’s little sister.
Pippa impressed many people, it seems. US Weekly dubbed her the “hottest bridesmaid ever.” The ladies on The View insinuated that she outshone her sister. Justin Bieber tweeted about her. And her bum currently has 27,471 fans on Facebook.
The name Pippa has always been rare in the United States. In 2009, only 21 baby girls were named Pippa. Do you think Pippa Middleton’s sudden fame in the U.S. will give the name a boost in 2011?
(Also, did you like Kate’s dress? How about Pippa’s?)
