Pippa Middleton has celebrated her hen do! The 33-year-old was reportedly joined by her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, for a low-key skiing break in Meribel, France last month. The bride-to-be, her sister, Kate Middelton, and her closest friends flew out on the same private plane, which was paid for by Carole and Michael Middleton ahead of Pippa’s May wedding day.
A friend of the bride-to-be told the Sun: “Pippa loves skiing so it was her first choice for a hen weekend. They stayed in a really exclusive catered chalet with maids and a chef, who ensured that they were totally spoilt. The owners also wanted to impress their royal guests so the girls were showered with gifts. They were given Swatch watches, Ugg slippers, leather-bound notebooks and bespoke fragrances. It was a very small, private party and they had an amazing time.”
In just a few weeks, the world’s most famous bridesmaid will become a bride.
Pippa Middleton, Kate Middleton‘s little sister, got engaged to James Matthews, a hedge fund millionaire, and former racing driver, last summer. He proposed with a 3.5-carat Asscher-cut diamond engagement ring from London jeweler Robinson Pelham after dating Pippa for nearly a year. The two have known each other for more than a decade.
