A lot has happened since the Royal Wedding in 2011. Queen Elizabeth celebrated her Diamond Jubilee. Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge welcomed Prince George (and Kate slipped right back into her skinnies). Prince Harry grew a scruffy beard and started dating Cressida Bonas. But — or should we say butt — there is still one moment from Will and Kate’s fête that has not lost it’s buzz: Pippa Middleton‘s derrière in her Alexander McQueen bridesmaid dress. Proof: Kate’s baby sis is still talking about it!

Middleton made a speech Monday at a London event, and she couldn’t help but quip about the royal moment that put her on the global map. “As I have found out, recognition has its upside, its downside and — you may say — its backside,” she said, via the U.K. paper The Mirror, adding that she was “glad it fitted” at the time, but “in ­retrospect, it fitted a little too well.”

Since the wedding, Middleton has been very busy pursuing her own career, even penned a book about party planning. Plus, she might be taking a trip down the aisle soon, reportedly getting serious with boyfriend Nico Jackson. But we’re pretty sure we won’t be seeing a reprise of that major bum moment on her big day. What do you think of Middleton’s butt buzz? Are you surprised she’s still talking about it?

She’s not famous for her backside. She’s famous for being the sister of Kate. THIS is the first I’ve heard about her derriere.

Yet to spot the butt…:-) It’s flat and she should worry about being associated with success stories and more useful things rather than her rear end. Cute girl but needs to think differently.

Just like your sister, way to into yourself

What “butt?” This non-existing thing is STILL being talked about??

The dress was pretty, and I think it was fitted just fine. But the whole “my goodness her butt is so great” is a bit overdone.

One of the most overrated people… The only person talking about her backside is her. You have no butt! Nor is she particularly attractive. More boy than girl. Get over yourself. Really

Kate is just so much more beautiful than Pippa. Pippa doesn’t even come close in beauty or style.

Anne on

Pippa is not very pretty. Kate on the other hand is beautiful and has a great sense of style!
