Ok we have heard some excuses in our time here at In2town but according to the future Queen’s sister, Pippa Middleton she believed her friend waving a gun at a photographer in Paris was part of a game. Maybe she thought the game was bang bang and you are dead if the gun went off or maybe officials from Buckingham Palace quickly got in touch with Pippa Middleton to tell her what to say but in any case, Pippa Middleton has let herself down, her sister down and the rest of the country down with her stupid prank.
Pippa Middleton caused controversy when she was photographed in a car with a man as he pointed what is believed to have been a semi-automatic at the press, according to reports the man is believed to be a lawyer called Romain Rabillard.
Paris Judical Police have launched an inquiry into the incident where they are investigating the illegal use of a handgun but a source close to Romain Rabillard has said the gun was a toy gun and not a real gun. Legal experts have said that Pippa Middleton could be questioned over the incident and could even be charged but Royal experts have said this is unlikely to happen due to connection to the Royal family.
A friend of Pippa Middleton, Marcy de Soultrait who attended a fancy dress party with Pippa the night before the incident has defended her friend and wants the media to back off.
Marcy de Soultrait who is the sister of designer Vicomte Arthur de Soultrait told the Daily Mail that Romain Rabillard did not point a real gun at the photographer.
“Pippa is a very good friend of mine and this gun affair is very silly. It was a children’s toy that the driver had in his car,” he claimed. “Pippa thought it was funny. It is fine in France to do that and the police are not investigating.”
Soultrait continued: “In France there is no problem, just in England. You English think there is a problem, which is crazy. I have spoken with Pippa; she thinks this is all a joke and a funny game. We were just having a laugh. We are funny people, it’s what we do.
“The paparazzo saw the toy and he knew it was a toy, he has said so. You English need to get over it. It was just a joke that has been blown out of all proportion,”
If Pippa Middleton was a normal person then she could face up to two years in jail according to a legal expert but with her being the sister of the future Queen it is believed that no action will be taken against her.
