When Kate Middleton got married to Prince William back in 2011, her little sister Phillipa "Pippa" Middleton definitely turned heads as she served as maid of honor. But when it comes to Pippa's upcoming wedding to hedge fund manager James Matthews, the roles probably won't be reversed.

According to royals correspondent Judy Wade, Kate will likely not serve as her sister's matron of honor so she doesn't pull focus the bride. Wade told People, "It’s a tricky situation for Pippa. She would want her sister by her side, as who else would she trust to make things go well? But if your sister is a future Queen, she is going to upstage the bride and draw attention. Kate would want to be in the background as much as possible."

Good point. Pippa, or "Her Royal Hotness," as she was affectionately nicknamed, knows a thing or two about stealing the spotlight. She managed to get people buzzing about her at Kate's wedding, and she was getting married to a literal prince, for goodness sake.
