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?

You could barely see her butt. I dont know why everyone made a big deal about her butt. She’s pretty and all, but I wouldnt say you could really see her butt in this dress.

Hmmm on

She’s famous for her butt? Ooookay

sunshinye on

I never saw the big deal about her behind to began with. I think the hype was because she is Kate Middleton’s sister and they made a big deal out nothing.

What butt?? Are you kidding me?

Sorry. She did NOT upstage Kate. Not even close.

She is so full of herself! Can’t stand her!

She was pretty for the wedding, no doubt and classy. It’s not her fault who her sister is, she doesn’t ask for the attention, people solicit her and have an interest in her. Nobody should fault her for that. It is what it is…it doesn’t matter who it was, they would be ridiculed no matter what.

I’ve never understood the hoopla surrounding this girl. She is not very pretty, kind of plain and hard looking. And her butt? Are you kidding me? It’s completely flat! I thought her bridesmaid dress was nice but she could NEVER upstage her sister. Kate is beautiful.
