In times past, disrespecting a royal relative, well, so royally, might have triggered an Anglo-French war.
But influential royal watcher Stephane Bern merely ignited a fusillade of heated, cross-channel chatter. Did she, or didn’t she pad?
One thing is certain, Pippa’s derriere created a sensation as she walked behind the royal couple, head high, shoulders straight and tush lusciously erect. You could have bounced a shilling off of it.
In fact, her tush became so famous it even had its own Facebook page and Twitter account.
“But of course she had a false bottom,” said Bern, 50, in dry understatment on his television show today while remarking on Pippa’s visit to vineyards in the Bordeaux region of France.
“I repeat it: she had a false bottom.” he said resolutely as if daring the English to call out their armada.
“You take her away from that and she has normal buttocks,” he said. “It was an optical illusion. She knew there were a billion people watching. It was the moment to show it,” he added, according to London’s Daily Mail.
Pippa came under similar scrutiny in 2011 when London spa owner Lesley Reynolds Kahn questioned her butt on a TLC special on the royal sister.
Pippa was resplendent in the white Alexander McQueen dress. Even she joked that the dress fit “a little too well.”
Harrump! A little too well, indeed.
