Pippa Middleton‘s highly-anticipated book, Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends, is coming out on October 30. But a few excerpts have been leaked, and in them, the Duchess of Cambridge‘s little sis has a few things to say about her newfound notoriety.
According to People Style Watch, Pippa writes the following, which appeared in an excerpt in You magazine:
“It’s a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30 on account of your sister, your brother-in-law, and your bottom. One day I might be able to make sense of this. In the meantime I think it’s fair to say that it has its upside and its downside.”
Wait, no mention of the fake gun incident? That probably gained her some recognition, too! We kid. It really must be bizarre to be in Pippa’s shoes and be thrust into the public eye because of your family members. She went on to say this:
“I know many of you will pick up the book out of nothing more than curiosity. I can assure you that it feels even stranger to me than it probably does to you to have seen so much written about me when I have done so little to paint a picture of myself. I certainly have opportunities many can only dream of – but in most ways I’m a typical girl in her 20s trying to forge a career and represent herself in what can sometimes seem rather strange circumstances. One of the most attractive has been the chance to publish Celebrate.”
The 400-page party-planning tome is being published by Viking and will retail for $50. Are you going to pick up a copy?
