Should Pippa have apologized for making Kate look bad, or does Kate just need to suck it up?

On the day of the Royal Wedding, all eyes were on Prince William‘s new bride Kate Middleton – but now the spotlight has shifted to Kate’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, and it sounds like she feels pretty bad about it. “Pippa’s really embarrassed,” a family friend tells Life & Style. “She knows that whatever she does affects Kate, and she hates that all this stuff has surfaced.” That “stuff,” of course, refers to the racy photos that have been circulating online.

Photos aside, Pippa is also reportedly sorry for stealing her sister’s thunder on her wedding day in that infamous Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress. And while Kate is forgiving, she’s also very concerned.

“Pippa can do what she wants, but Kate doesn’t want her embarrassing the royal family,” says Andrew Morton, author of William and Catherine: Their Story. “She’ll try to be more careful.”
