Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, gave her first ever sit-down TV interview with NBC’s morning program Today Show.
In extracts of Matt Lauer’s interview, Pippa Middleton talks about the bridesmaid dress that made her a household name.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister has said she considered the Royal Wedding to be a family event and her now-famous dress an “insignificant” part of the proceedings.
Pippa Middleton, 30, said the experience of Prince William and her sister’s wedding had been “surreal” and attention focused on her derrière both flattering and embarrassing.
“It was completely unexpected,” Pippa Middleton said of the attention her gown received.
“You know, I think the plan was not really for it to be a significant dress. Really just to sort of blend in with the train.”
Speaking to Today Show’s host Matt Lauer, Pippa Middleton said: “I suppose it’s flattering,” although she admitted she also found it “embarrassing, definitely” because “it wasn’t planned”.
