Less than a week after she got entangled in a gun-waving scandal, Pippa Middleton finally came out of her hiding. The younger sister of Kate Middleton has been caught on camera stepping out in central London for a little pampering on Friday, April 20 afternoon, but it seemed that she's not in the mood to smile.
At time of the sighting, 28-year-old Pippa was making her way to the Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa. She wore a color-block blouse that she paired with skinny jeans and black suede ankle boots. She also has by her a matching leather handbag. Words are, since the gun incident, the socialite went into hiding at the Middleton family home in the English countryside.
Pippa made headlines on Sunday, April 15 after she was photographed riding shotgun in a convertible whose driver pointed a semi-automatic handgun at photographers. While earlier reports suggested that Paris Judicial Police are "poised" to launch an investigation into the incident, it was later said that the party planner is unlikely to be investigated.
While Pippa remained mum over the incident, her friend Viscount Arthur de Soultrait released a statement on Wednesday afternoon. "Last Saturday, I was in a car with Philippa Middleton, and we were being followed by paparazzi," he said. "She had been subject to constant and dangerous harassment by paparazzi throughout her time in Paris."
"The car was being driven by a friend of mine, whom Pippa had only met a few hours before. As a joke, my friend brandished a toy pistol in their direction. Obviously Philippa had no idea that he was going to do that and told him to stop immediately. She did not find it funny. I regret enormously that this incident happened, and especially that Pippa has been subject to the subsequent attention through no fault of her own. I have apologized to her for this."
