Kate's sister was considered a shoe-in, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie recently had tea with Princess Kate. That's got to count for something, right? Presumably, it didn't.

Where Is Duchess Kate's Sister And That Royal Bum?

7/4/2015 2:29pm EDT
Dear Pippa Middeton, Where Are You? Ahead Of Christening, Duches
Here's a fair question: Where on Earth is Pippa Middleton?

Ahead of the Royal Christening of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's daughter, Princess Charlotte, Pip is missing in action -- sort of. The younger sister of Kate Middleton has kept a low profile for some time now.

Arguably, there has not been much talk about Pippa Middleton ever since Prince George was born. Nowadays, all the fuss is about Harry the humanitarian, Prince William the doting father, Here Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, and who Duchess Kate is wearing. Noticeably missing is the bum goddess herself aka P-Middy, to some ...

Will Duchess Kate Middleton return to sports and competition, or is she too dainty of a princess to work up a sweat?
