Pippa Middleton told to leave supermarket because of her dogs- hours after pregnancy news
PIPPA MIDDLETON was in the doghouse after being asked to leave a supermarket after going in with her two pet dogs. Just hours before the happy news of her first pregnancy was reportedly revealed, the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister, 34, was spotted being asked to leave a branch of Tesco Express in London.
Pippa, looking summery in a sleeveless tan-coloured outfit and sunglasses, was out with a female friend on Saturday.
But she was asked to leave by a member of staff shortly after walking in with her cocker spaniel Rafa and her husband’s black Labrador.
While she looked a little put out, Pippa followed the assistant’s instructions and politely left.
The incident came as friends reportedly told how she was overjoyed after falling pregnant with her first child.
She and her husband, the financier James Matthews, broke the news that they are expecting a baby after the 12-week scan, it emerged yesterday.
Her sister Kate, who is heavily pregnant herself with her third child with Prince William, was also said to be delighted at the news.
Pippa and her 42-year-old husband have also told friends they are “overjoyed”.
A friend said: “When Pippa found out she was pregnant, she was obviously thrilled.
“Naturally, big sister Kate and parents, Carole and Michael, were the first people she told – James aside – and they could not have been more delighted.
“It’s been a tough few weeks for the two families, so his has provided some much-needed happiness and light relief.”
The news comes after a difficult time for the Middleton clan following allegations of rape against Pippa’s father-in-law David Matthews.
He strenuously denies the claims and branded them as “untrue and scandalous”.
He is alleged to have carried out two offences between 1998 and 1999, one in Paris and another on the Caribbean island of St Barts.
After hearing news of her sister’s pregnancy, friends said that the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, “could not have been more delighted”, friends said.
Kate was reportedly the first person to be told after Mr Matthews.
