Pippa Middleton is truly concerned that the new relationship growing between her sister Kate and her step-mother-in-law Camilla may end up being disastrous for Kate.
Sources tell of Camilla spending more and more time with Kate and when asked, was told that she is grooming Kate in the ways of the monarchy.
Pippa is worried that we may soon see Kate wearing twin-sets, pearls and plaid skirts as she heard Kate is beginning to take fashion advice from Camilla.
The first sign of the 'hold' Camilla appears to have on Kate is when Kate told Pippa she was thinking about having her hair cut, lightened and curled. Pippa was successful in talking Kate out of this move but knows she cannot be with her sister every minute of the day.
Prince William is also wondering about this friendship and wants to put a stop to it in a diplomatic way. He is aware of his step-mother's track record and her determination - as evidenced by the length of time she hung around waiting to marry Prince Charles.
When asked her thoughts on the above, Kate smiled and said, "No comment! Do you like the pretty bracelet given to me by dear Camilla?"
