Kate Middleton Worried Royal Family Doesn’t Approve of Pippa Middleton’s Engagement

As Life & Style reported earlier this week, Pippa Middleton‘s engagement to James Matthews has raised some concerns for older sister Kate Middleton — namely when it comes to the groom’s younger brother, Spencer, 28.

“Spencer has slept his way around London and left a lengthy trail of women in his wake,” an insider reveals. “The last thing [Kate] wants is for William‘s family to turn against her because of Spencer’s actions.”

The 34-year-old mother-of-two is increasingly worried about Queen Elizabeth II‘s opinion, especially since the monarch already finds the Middletons “tacky,” according to a confidant.
