Pippa's sure to be a hit with the Royals at Christmas(UK)
dailymail.co.uk ^ | 4 December, 2011 | Katie Nicholl

Pippa Middleton has been invited to join the Royal Family’s Christmas gathering at Sandringham.

In a highly unusual move, she has been asked to take part in the traditional Boxing Day pheasant shoot – which is normally restricted to members of the Royal Family and their spouses.

This Christmas will be the Duchess of Cambridge’s first at the Norfolk estate with the Queen, and the idea is that asking Kate’s sister along on Boxing Day will help her feel more at home.

Pippa, 28, who recently split with banker Alex Loudon, 31, is an expert shot and is apparently keen to join the festivities.

A source says: ‘Kate will of course miss her family on Christmas Day – she has traditionally spent it with them.

‘She wants Pippa to join her at Sandringham on Boxing Day because it will make being apart from her family at Christmas a little easier.

‘Pippa’s very keen to go and she’s been on a couple of shooting weekends to make sure she won’t let the side down.

I am not much concerned with the coming and going of royals and their freinds and associates, but it is worth noting that the elite in the UK are good shotgun shots.

Always a pleasure to find another Jethro Tull fan on FR. I just thought JT was now a fish farmer —not a hunter!

I meant to say Ian Anderson is a fish farmer —not “Jethro Tull!”

I grew up there in the midlands and a shotgun certificate was easy to get. I had one and so did a lot of people I knew. we’d go hunt game birds at local farms and would have clay pigeon shoots too

I believe he has sold the Salmon farming businesses. Still touring, and will be in the US next fall with the 40th anniversary of the single song album which sourced my tagline.

So being a “Towed Jumper” means that somebody actually did eventually jump start and tow you away?

Straithaird was sold years ago.

He also sold his Skye property where Dun Ringill stands, prior to Straithaird going.

He went ‘city’, decided to look like Anton LaVey and spends his free time going on endlessly about cats.

Haven’t gone to a concert since the 90s.

[the the 1982 “Broadsword And The Beast” tour was the best]

Good grief! I see the photo is gone. Whatever in the world for? That’s just weird.

It may have been from a prohibited source.
