Egad! Pippa Middleton received a parking ticket on her shiny new BMW in London. But the Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister donned skinny jeans with a smile, and didn't bat an eye.
It's not like the party planner had a lackadaisical attitude, but if she did, by golly she would have done what most people do when they see evidence a meter maid has been by.
It goes that P-Middy parked her luxury BMW Z4 in front of a restaurant on Thursday. Apparently, the business does not offer valet, or Pip enjoys roughing it herself without the fanfare. Getting waited on at every turn gets old -- perhaps.
After Pippa Middleton walked out and towards her vehicle, she discovered a parking citation on the windshield.
A penny for your thoughts on what you believe she was thinking?
Try this: "Don't they know who I am? My sister is Catherine Duchess of Cambridge. That means I can park where I darn well please."
Well, maybe that's not her style, but even Justin Bieber or Donald Trump, with their long money, would be livid at the thought of paying for a parking ticket.
But in keeping with British protocol, especially if you're connected in any way to the Royal Family, Pippa Middleton removed the citation she was slapped with from her BMW's windshield, smiling ear to ear. If nothing else, she was the hottest brunette in the area sporting stone-colored skinny jeans.
