Your chance is coming: Pippa's Recipe-Filled 'Celebrate' is out Oct. 30

Everyone loves Pippa Middleton. If they’re not paying close attention to her street styles, what she picks up for breakfast in the morning on the way to work, or her gentlemen callers, they’re simply just watching her behind.

But Princess Kate's sister has parlayed her party-loving personality into a profession. Middleton, who runs Party Pieces' (her family's business) online magazine The Party Times, has penned a book on just that — how to plan a party. Entitled Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends, it will cover various celebrations throughout all the seasons and also include advice and theme party ideas.

While the book's contents are under wraps for now, we do know this: it will be 400 pages and is set to be released Oct. 30, just in time for the holidays. Filled with recipes, menus, and entertaining tips, Celebrate offers gems like this Rhubarb and Anise Crumble Cake and seasonal greats like these Easter Nest Cupcakes. Head over to The Party Times to get a better idea of what to expect, but we’ll just say this, by the look of the charming website and its content, you’re in good hands.

Now, as for Prince Harry, he could use a few words of wisdom from Pippa on how to have a successful gentlemen’s evening, don’t you think?

Pippa Middleton Doesn't Want to Be Called a Party Girl

W hen Pippa Middleton released her party-planning book, Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends in 2012, she didn’t expect it to take over how she was seen by the public. Her simple tips&mdashwhich were met with a great deal of criticism&mdashtook part in creating the “party girl” label she says has been unfairly placed on her.

Middleton told the Daily Mail that she doesn’t identify with that description. “People see me as someone privileged who has used my position to advantage that I don’t really work, that I am a socialite&mdashthat word really irritates me&mdashand that I’m a party girl without any substance,” she said.

Now publishing a cookbook she put together for British Heart Foundation featuring healthy recipes from sports stars, Middleton admits that the “party girl” narrative is upsetting to her. “I try not to be too sensitive about things because it’s just a bit of life I have to deal with. But I would be lying if I said it didn’t affect me,” she said.

Pippa Middleton book: How good are these royal recipes?

Pippa Middleton book: The younger sister to the Duchess of Windsor, Pippa Middleton has stirred up her own recipe book of simple recipes and party ideas. The result? A book that reflects who she is – a young, single, urban woman with a background in party planning.

Kate Middleton's younger sister Pippa, the one who "stole the show" as the maid of honor at the Royal Wedding in the spring of 2011, wants to help you throw a party.

Pippa's new book, "Celebrate," features seasonal themed parties with fashionable photos full of rosy cheeked children enjoying themselves and, of course, the perfect tresses and dimpled smile of the author herself. London's Daily Mail online offers a sneak peak at her Halloween and Bonfire Night chapters, and their accompanying recipes.

"The book is designed to be a comprehensive guide to home entertaining, based on my experience in my family’s party business Party Pieces, and work for London-based events company Table Talk," writes Pippa in the introduction of "Celebrate." "It is a useful and practical journey into British-themed occasions and I hope it offers welcome inspiration and ideas, most of which needn’t leave you alarmingly out of pocket."

A quick perusal of the opening chapters of "Celebrate" shows that Pippa knows her audience. The ones who trail her every move in the tabloids (some estimate she is photographed up to 400 times a day by paparazzi), follow her fashion trends, and gossip about her social life. Essentially, celebrity chasers with the attention span of a gnat.

Is politics the new religion?

Pippa's recipes directly reflect who she is and where she is in her life – a young, single, urban woman with a background in party planning who happens to be experiencing unprecedented global attention. The recipes in "Celebrate" are simple and yet they are more creative than just pouring out a bag of chips and popping open a jar of salsa. Think: Witches' fingers cheese straws for Halloween and red and orange stuffed peppers for Bonfire night.

"Celebrate" includes a nod toward British traditions, too, with Toad-in-the-hole casserole and parkin, "a hearty, comforting ginger cake made with oatmeal and black treacle, parkin originated in the north of England and is customarily eaten on Bonfire Night."

Simple, from someone still finding her mark, is not always a bad approach.

With photos of happy children playing games like pumpkin bowling and eating doughnuts hanging on strings from the limbs of trees, it's tempting to think "Celebrate" is the perfect babysitter's cookbook, a fashionable Mary Poppins, if you will. But Pippa quickly saves her reputation as London's "It Girl" with her recipes for adult cocktails. So let's upgrade that ranking to a helpful dorm party book for people not quite ready to let go of childhood. Or maybe a party guide for frazzled young parents who've let the living room go to seed with LEGOs.

Presentation is half the battle at any party table. An appealing looking dish with simple decorations can make guests feel like you've stepped it up a bit for them, and they'll appreciate it. A little bit of effort can turn just another get together with friends in front of the telly into a more festive occasion, and that appears to be what "Celebrate" aims to help its readers achieve.

Pippa and her autumnal offerings – so far – is being roasted by the media as an effort to cash in on her new found fame, a veritable insult to the public with its lollypop studded pumpkins and tomato soup with floating chunks of cheese. Really? Domestic maven Martha Stewart has run the critics' gauntlet for years for being too complex and too perfect.

And so what if "Celebrate" gives a detailed explanation of how to play the school game conkers? Let Pippa be who she is, the public obviously can't get enough of her, and pass me a piece of parkin cake.

Pippa Middleton's mother reportedly 'masterminded' her engagement

It's not so common these days that a mother would be said to be the "mastermind" of her child's engagement. But a source told The Telegraph that's just what happened when it came to James Matthews and Pippa Middleton.

According to the paper, Pippa's mother, Carole Middleton, reportedly told a friend years before the engagement that she really hoped the two would get serious. A source said, "This is something she has hoped for for quite some time. She appears to be something of a mastermind in making this happen."

James reportedly had a private meeting with Carole before asking for her daughter's hand. The Telegraph reported that, after the proposal, Carole was "thrilled."

And while some had speculated that the wedding might take place at James' family estate in Scotland, Carole's influence on the couple seemed to come through in their choice to marry on the Middleton family estate instead.

Food Network Staffer Diary: I Cooked Like Pippa Middleton for 3 Days

Pippa Middleton may best be known as the svelte younger sister of Kate after all, Pippa left the world buzzing after the way she flaunted her figure as the Duchess of Cambridge’s maid of honor at the royal wedding in 2011. The natural question anyone would have after seeing her perfect, curve-hugging ensemble that April day would be: But how does she keep herself looking so fit and gorgeous?

She may be related to a Duchess, but Pippa doesn’t actually have her own royal title (at least not yet — her engagement to James Matthews should eventually give her one, too, according to a House Beautiful article published around the time of their engagement.) She’s authored several books on party planning, and recently she released a cookbook called Heartfelt: Over 100 Quick & Easy Recipes for a Healthy Heart in conjunction with the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

It turns out that the famous younger Middleton is actually a total health nut. She’s cycled across the United States and run marathons, including the Great Wall Marathon in China to support the BHF, according to reporting by Elle. And if she eats anything like the diet she’s laid out in her new cookbook, it’s clear she puts health above pretty much everything else.

And good for her! I totally support that and honestly wish I could do a better job of eating healthfully and exercising the way I know I should. But, there is one question that any flavor-obsessed food writer like myself has to ask: How does the food taste? So, I obtained a copy of Heartfelt (the proceeds are going to charity, after all!) and decided to test some of Pippa’s recipes myself to see if I could cook and eat exclusively from her book for three whole days.

I went shopping on a Friday after work so I could start my project over the weekend. I have to say, my first observation was that cooking heart-healthy at home and totally abstaining from any restaurant or prepared foods was going to mean some serious work, so beginning on a Saturday would give me some much-needed time to properly prep and cook multiple meals.

Pippa Middleton has given birth to a baby girl

Pippa Middleton gave birth to her second child with her husband James Matthews.

The baby girl, Grace Elizabeth Jane Matthews, shares a middle name with her aunt Kate Middleton.

A representative for Middleton confirmed that both "mother and baby are doing well."

Pippa Middleton gave birth to her second child, a baby girl, on Monday morning.

Pippa, whose sister is the Duchess of Cambridge, and her husband James Matthews welcomed the new arrival to their family, making their 2-year-old son Arthur Michael William an older brother.

"I'm delighted to confirm, Grace Elizabeth Jane was born around 4:22 am this morning, weighing 6lbs 7oz," a representative for Middleton confirmed to Insider.

"Mother and baby are doing well," they added.

Grace is a cousin of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, alongside her brother and Archie Harrison, son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

She is also Prince William and Kate's first niece, and the fifth grandchild to Carole and Michael Middleton.

The newborn's name includes a nod to her aunt Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, as the pair share a middle name.

This is not the first time the couple has chosen a middle name with sentimental links to family members - Arthur's middle name is a tribute to Matthews' late brother Michael Matthews, who passed away while climbing Mount Everest in 1999.

Pippa, 37, and Matthews, 45, were married in 2017 and welcomed Arthur in October 2018 at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London, where her sister Kate delivered all three of her children.

Alongside the Middletons, Princess Diana also gave birth at the $7,400 per night facility, making the Lindo Wing a popular choice for royal births.

Pippa used her fitness column at Waitrose Weekend magazine to confirm her first pregnancy in 2018, and shared insights into her pregnancy experience, writing: "I've noticed my body change and weight increase, but through effective exercise and sports I feel that it's being strengthened to support a healthy pregnancy, birth, and recovery."

Her mother Carole confirmed her daughter's pregnancy news during an interview with Good Housekeeping in March.

"I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild," she told the magazine.

With Princess Eugenie giving birth to her first child, a baby boy, in February, and the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting a baby girl this summer, 2021 has been a big year for babies related to senior members of the royal family.

House Republican votes for U.S. Capitol riot plan a blow to Kevin McCarthy

A week after House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy gambled he could unify his caucus by ousting a prominent critic of former President Donald Trump, a new Trump-inspired rift has raised questions about his leadership. Thirty-five Republican representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives - or one out of every six - joined the 219 majority Democrats in voting to create a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot, when hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the building, fighting with police and leaving five people dead. That was more than three times as many Republicans as voted in January to hold Trump's second impeachment trial, on a charge of inciting insurrection.

CNN won't discipline Chris Cuomo for strategy calls with brother's staff about sexual harassment scandal

CNN is acknowledging it was "inappropriate" for its anchor Chris Cuomo to advise his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), on how to handle his sexual harassment scandal. The CNN host took part in a series of strategy calls earlier this year focused on how to respond after the New York governor faced allegations of sexual harassment, The Washington Post revealed on Thursday. These calls reportedly included the governor's top aide, communications team, lawyers, and advisers, and the CNN anchor urged his brother not to resign while citing "cancel culture," the Post says. Chris Cuomo hosts a nightly show on CNN, and he said in March he could "obviously" not cover his brother's scandal on the air, though CNN would continue to do so. But Cuomo taking part in these advisory calls "cuts against the widely accepted norm in journalism that those reporting the news should not be involved in politics," the Post wrote, with Columbia Journalism School professor Nicholas Lemann saying, "If you are actively advising a politician in trouble while being an on-air host on a news network, that's not okay." CNN in a statement to the Post confirmed that Cuomo, who "often serves as a sounding board for his brother," participated in these calls and said doing so was "inappropriate" but that he won't be disciplined. "It was inappropriate to engage in conversations that included members of the governor's staff, which Chris acknowledges," CNN said. "He will not participate in such conversations going forward." CNN previously faced criticism for allowing Chris Cuomo to interview his brother numerous times on the air early on during the COVID-19 pandemic last year. The network has said it "made an exception to a rule that we have had in place since 2013 which prevents Chris from interviewing his brother" during this time but that this rule has since been reimposed.

Mom Allegedly Killed Son for Thwarting Her Affair. Now She’s Accused in Murder-for-Hire Plot.

via FacebookA New Jersey mom awaiting trial for murdering her infant son because he was getting in the way of her affair has been hit with new charges—this time for allegedly conspiring with her boyfriend in a murder-for-hire plot.Heather Reynolds, 43, and boyfriend, 44-year-old Jeffrey Callahan, were charged this week with first-degree conspiracy to commit murder, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said Wednesday. Reynolds was already being held at Camden County Jail on a slew of charges, including murder and endangering the welfare of a child, in connection to the May 10, 2018 death of her 17-month-old son Axel Reynolds.“During the investigation into Axel’s death, detectives uncovered evidence that Reynolds and Callahan were allegedly conspiring to have another individual killed,” prosecutors said in a news release announcing the charges. Details of the murder-for-hire scheme have not been released.In 2018, officers responded to Gloucester Township after reports of an unresponsive child on a lawn. Prosecutors allege that the 17-month-old had bruises around his mouth and nose and Reynolds told EMTs she believed he may have accidentally ingested something poisonous. He was pronounced dead at the scene.“Although no one had accused [Reynolds] of any wrongdoing, she blurted out, ‘It’s not suspicious. I didn’t do anything wrong,’” Assistant Prosecutor Peter Gallagher said during a 2019 court hearing, according to Axel Reynolds died from being suffocated by a poisonous wet wipe, officials said. Tribute Slides/Earle Funeral Home The medical examiner concluded on June 7, 2018, that Axel died of asphyxia and his death was a homicide, authorities said. Blood tests showed trace levels of isopropyl alcohol, which is used in antiseptics and acetone, prompting the medical examiner to conclude the infant suffocated after “a wipe containing isopropyl alcohol and detergent was placed over the mouth and nose,” according to said that during the investigation, witnesses later revealed that Reynolds had used meth the night before Axel’s death and a small residue of the drug was found in her purse. Text messages obtained from Reynolds’ damaged phone showed that she was having an affair while her husband was working in another state.“A review of the text messages between the defendant and her boyfriend from the previous night reveal that [Reynolds] was becoming frustrated by the boyfriend’s apparent lack of interest,” Gallagher said in 2019. “And witnesses also told detectives that [Reynolds] had expressed the sentiment that her toddler son, the victim A.R., was an obstacle to her relationship with her boyfriend.”The prosecutor added that the boyfriend, who was not identified at the time, also slept over the night of the murder but left before police arrived.Reynolds was indicted by a grand jury on June 13, 2018. During a 2019 hearing in which Reynolds was ordered to be detained pending trial, her defense attorney insisted that while she struggled with addiction she did not kill her son.“She adamantly denies that she has anything to do with the death of her child,” attorney Michael Testa said. “She’s suffered greatly as a result of this.” online tribute written by one of Axel Reynolds’ aunts described him as the “sweetest little boy who had a smile that made the room glow and everyone around you feel the innocence and peace that you radiated.”Callahan, who was arrested on Monday, is set to appear in court on Friday for a detention hearing. Reynolds’ next court date hasn't been set. An attorney for both was not immediately available for comment. One of Reynolds’ relatives declined to comment on the new charges, telling The Daily Beast, “unfortunately our family can not really comment on anything until the trial is over.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Pippa Middleton's book is here but Pippa is not

Pippa Middleton's long-awaited party-planning book is here alas, Pippa herself is not.

The younger sister of a future queen got a six-figure payday to write Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends, a 400-page, lavishly illustrated tome on creating perfect British parties. It goes on sale in the USA on Tuesday (Viking, $50).

Do not expect to see Pippa, 29, promoting it in the usual way, touring the country, appearing in bookstores or sitting down with Barbara, Ellen or Oprah to chat.

Her Royal Hotness, as she was dubbed by the British tabloids after the royal wedding last year, is not doing interviews, say Viking PR pooh-bahs. And no wonder: Too much has happened — scandalettes over her tango in Paris with a friend waving a fake gun, topless photos of her sister published in Europe in September — that would lead to nosy questions that neither she nor royal officials want to answer.

The book is out Tuesday. (Photo: Celebrate by Pippa Middleton)

Not that it matters. Trumpet blasts of publicity will accompany the book no matter what, even as a historic storm batters the Atlantic seaboard. Already, excerpts have appeared in Britain and here, in Sunday's Parade magazine, which featured "tricks and treats for a royally spooky (Halloween) holiday." Last week, she launched the book with an appearance at a children's Halloween party in London.

The book is full of pictures of delectable British goodies with wacky names — Beef Wellington, Easter Trifle, Toad-in-the-Hole — plus plenty of pics of Pippa herself, the reigning delectable British goodie ever since sister Kate married Prince William last year. Kate became a royal duchess and Pippa, thanks to a pretty face and a lovely rear end, became a princess of the paparazzi.

"It's a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30, on account of your sister, your brother-in-law, and your bottom," she writes in the first sentence of the book's introduction.

Americans in search of new ideas for home entertaining (having already exhausted the resources of Martha Stewart and her innumerable descendants) should be forewarned: This book, organized by season and holiday, is veddy British, even though the American edition has American spelling.

Boxing Day, Burns Night, Guy Fawkes Day and All Hallows' Feast are not widely celebrated here, and some of these dishes will be either unfamiliar or off-putting to many Yanks — cranachan, kedgeree and haggis, for instance. But it's a credible effort to counter the outdated stereotype of British chefs and cuisine as the unspeakable in pursuit of the inedible.

Advice on picnics and camping, cocktails and beach games is included. Pippa clearly knows how to decorate a table with whimsy and elegance, and she includes games for kids, songs, poetry, a how-to on home preservation, even a guide to star-gazing.

"It is a useful and practical journey into British-themed occasions," Pippa writes, based on her experience working for the Middleton family's online party business, Party Pieces, and for a London events-planning outfit, Table Talk.

While not a gossipy memoir, Pippa does write a little about her favorite parties and about growing up Middleton in the family manse in Bucklebury, Berkshire. She reveals just enough to give readers a tantalizing taste without disturbing her air of mystery. She is seizing a chance to define herself outside the clutches of the media.

"I know many of you will have picked up this book out of nothing more than curiosity," she writes, adding that it's strange to have seen so much written about her "when I have done little to paint a picture of myself. This is my first chance to do that and I've enjoyed every minute of it."

Pippa Middleton book deal worth some $640,000

Pippa Middleton book: On Thursday her 416-page glossy hardback will be released in Britain. The title of the Pippa Middleton book of recipes and party planning tips? "Celebrate: A Year of British Festivities for Families and Friends"

Paparazzi favorite Pippa Middleton is already a global celebrity. Now the 29-year-old sister of the future British queen is aiming to become a global brand.

The woman whose appearance at the spectacular 2011 wedding between Kate Middleton and Prince William caused as much of a sensation as the bride herself has written a recipe and party planning book which hits the shelves this week.

"Celebrate: A Year of British Festivities for Families and Friends" has been praised and pilloried in equal measure ahead of its Thursday release, but, perhaps predictably, Middleton's introductory comments have dominated the headlines.

In them, she addresses her status as one of the world's most photographed individuals, and even tackles the topic many people most closely associate her with - her behind.

Is politics the new religion?

"It's a bit startling to achieve global recognition (if that's the right word) before the age of 30, on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom," she wrote with a candor that won admirers in the royalty-obsessed British press.
"One day I might be able to make sense of this. In the meantime I think it's fair to say that it has its upside and its downside." The upside could be the size of the book deal.

Penguin imprint Michael Joseph, which is publishing the 416-page glossy hardback in Britain, has declined to give details of the size of the agreement, although a spokeswoman said some media coverage of the book had bordered on fiction.

The widely reported, but unsourced, amount is 400,000 pounds ($640,000), a sum which to most unpublished authors would appear astronomic although such advances are not unheard of.

Lena Dunham, three years Middleton's junior and the American creator of HBO comedy "Girls", was paid more than $3.5 million for her first book, according to the New York Times.

The Penguin spokeswoman did not confirm a Daily Mail report, also unsourced, that Middleton had signed up for more books, and added that one-on-one interviews to promote the publication were "never part of the plan".

The British media linked the decision to royal sensitivities over the likelihood that Middleton would be asked questions about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - the titles her royal brother-in-law and sister have now adopted.

The Middletons' relationship with the press has not been easy of late.

When Kate was photographed topless on holiday, the royal family sued the French magazine that published images which the palace described as a "grotesque" breach of privacy.

A tabloid picture editor estimated Pippa was photographed by paparazzi up to 400 times a day, underlining how important the sisters have become for the celebrity and tabloid press.

As well as selling newspapers and magazines and driving internet traffic, they are also considered major trend-setters who can sell outfits faster than just about anyone.

Now Pippa hopes to turn her experience working for her parents' party planning company to good commercial use.
Early reaction to Celebration, excerpts of which appeared in the Mail on Sunday, has ranged from the snide to the supportive.

The Daily Mail's Jan Moir could barely hide her skepticism.

"Critics might wonder what Pippa Middleton really knows about entertaining - particularly as she looks like a girl who has spent her entire life being entertained," she wrote.

"From the moment she appeared in butter satin at her sister's wedding, Pippa has struck absolutely no one as the kind of girl you would always find in the kitchen at parties."

But Bryony Gordon takes up her defense in the Daily Telegraph, which, like the Mail, is generally pro-royal.
While conceding that "the abiding feeling generated by Celebrate should be one of nausea," she praises Middleton for avoiding obvious exploitation of her royal connections.

Of "oddly comforting" recipes, Gordon adds: "If the world's most famous bottom can make blackberry butter, then I can too."

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews Enjoy Rare Public Date Night One Month After Welcoming Baby Girl

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews took a break from diaper duty to enjoy a much-needed date night.

Photographers spotted the pair while they were out for dinner in Chelsea on Thursday, April 22. The parents, who welcomed a baby girl last month, were seated just outside of an Italian restaurant, allowing their dogs to join them for the feast.

For the occasion, Pippa wore a warm and cozy coat over a black turtleneck, while James sported a leather jacket and jeans.

According to an eyewitness, the couple enjoyed steak and vegetables, before having a cup of tea. The onlooker adds that their dogs were not given any food, but says, "The couple was pretty relaxed as fellow diners came along to say hi and pat their dogs."

James and Pippa moved to the upscale neighborhood in 2018, after they completed extensive renovations on a £17 million home.

According to Hello Magazine, the writer and former race car driver added his and hers closets to the five-story townhome, in addition to a nursery for their son Arthur, who was born in October 2018.

They've since welcomed their daughter, Grace Elizabeth Jane Matthews, who was born on March 15, according to the couple's spokesperson.

Baby Grace shares a middle name with auntie Kate Middleton and grandmother Carole Middleton, who recently told Good Housekeeping that she is a very "hands-on" grandma. Carole shared, "I want to run down the hills, climb the trees and go through the tunnel at the playground. As long as I am able to, that's what I'll be doing. I cook with them, I muck around dancing, we go on bike rides."

In other words, Kate's three children, Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2, as well as 2-year-old Arthur, are kept busy by their grandma.

And now that the coronavirus restrictions have eased in the U.K., Carole said she intends to share more of those special moments with her family. She told the magazine, "I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild."

In an interview with People, which was released on Wednesday ahead of the May 27 Friends reunion, Aniston shared what she imagines Rachel would be doing today. “I would like to have maybe started a clothing line of my own, and it’s sort of a small franchise,” Aniston said about her character. “Like a Nili Lotan.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rachel Green Fashion (@whatracheltrended) Now, I can’t be the only one who didn’t see this coming. A clothing line, sure, though, personally, I imagined Rachel as more of the behind-the-scenes type than a designer. But Nili Lotan. Don’t get me wrong, the New York-based designer carries an enviable selection of elevated basics, but it wouldn’t be the brand I envisioned for Rachel. Instead, I pictured Rachel becoming a Ralph Lauren lifer, her closet a shrine to the Americana brand’s classic, preppy pieces that she acquired over the course of her time there. Today, she’d pair long-sleeved, cashmere sweater dresses with fitted white button-downs (as was done for the brand’s fall ‘20 collection) for work, and wear vintage polos with baggy jeans and sneakers on the weekend. If she were to launch her own brand after becoming Ralph’s right-hand (wo)man, it’d be something along the lines of Khaite or Coperni — tailor-forward, elevated labels with cult followings — but with a nostalgic, sporty touch a la Aimé Leon Dore.

And, as much as I hate to admit that Aniston knows the character she played for a decade more than I do, she may be right. After scrolling through page after page of slouchy cargo pants in faded, vintage colorways, shrunken T-shirts, and floor-length satin slip dresses, I could easily imagine Rachel in all these pieces. Hell, if the “The One with Phoebe’s Cookies” episode, when Rachel teaches Joey (Matt LeBlanc) how to sail, was filmed today, Aniston would be wearing these white trousers from the brand. And that, my friends, is what you call closure. Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?The Friends: The Reunion Trailer Is EmotionalThe Friends Cast Is Reuniting After AllFriends Reunion Postponed

Carole Middleton reveals how she built a successful business

Carole Middleton has opened up about founding and growing her successful party supplies business Party Pieces and credits her three children &ndash The Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton and James Middleton for all contributing to the company&rsquos success.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping, Carole said of the business&rsquo origins:

&ldquoIn 1987, I had two young children and was pregnant with my son, James. We had come back to the UK from living abroad and I was a full-time mum. I didn&rsquot want to miss out on my children growing up, so I considered starting my own business.

Party Pieces was as a result of my personal need for my own children&rsquos parties. You had to hunt high and low to find suitable party supplies. I found suppliers and put up notices in my daughters&rsquo playgroup that said &lsquoPlanning a Party?&rsquo and started getting orders. My memories of those early days are very vivid,&rdquo she said.

The business initially ran from a small start-up unit in Hungerford but began to outgrow the space after a leafleting campaign created a huge increase in orders.

&ldquoWe realised we needed a warehouse. In 1995, we moved to Child&rsquos Court Farm [in Reading], where we&rsquove been ever since,&rdquo Carole said.

Party Pieces is a family business, and Carole credits her three children for contributing to the company&rsquos success.

&ldquoMy children have all worked for the business. Catherine started the First Birthday brand &ndash she chose the products and looked after all the imagery and the catalogue production. Pippa set up the blog, as we didn&rsquot have one. James came up with the idea of personalised cakes and got them off the ground for us,&rdquo she said.

&ldquoBecause they all grew up with me working, Party Pieces has been very much part of our lives and what we talked about. I still ask their advice and say &lsquoWhat do you think of this?&rsquo&rdquo
