Royal Roundup: ‘Crazy About Pippa’ TV Special Coming to TLC
Ever since she stepped out in that white Sarah Burton-designed bridesmaid dress at her sister’s wedding in April, the world has been completely head over heels for Pippa Middleton. Royal superfans always want to know what she’s wearing and who she’s hanging out with. Her famous bum got its own Facebook page for chrissakes, so it should be of no surprise that the brunette beauty will be the subject of a primetime TV special.
Metro reports that TLC will touch upon some of the Pippa pandemonium in Crazy About Pippa, which premieres Tuesday, August 9 at 9 pm ET. Some of her best mates, plus her bridal party buddy Prince Harry, will apparently divulge special details about the world’s most famous royal bridesmaid. And to the cheeky Harry, Miss Pip is a total “foxy filly.” Tee hee!
