The Duchess' main concern isn't with James himself, but with his younger brother Spencer Matthews, who has appeared on multiple reality shows and openly admitted to experimenting with cocaine and LSD.
"[Kate] is horrified about Spencer being Pippa's brother-in-law," a source exclusively tells Life & Style.

We foresee plenty of royal drama ahead!
