“It was her sister Pippa’s idea,” a friend of Kate’s told OK! magazine.
The insider added, “Pippa is in charge of decorations. Wine and beer will be available -- not that Kate will be drinking alcohol, of course there will certainly be none of the hard stuff.”
The younger Middleton is the right woman for the job. Last year she authored the book “Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends,” and has ample access to shower décor… thanks to her parents’ approximately $45-million business, Party Pieces.
While baby showers fall outside of typical royal tradition, the source said Kate still hopes the Queen will attend.
“While it’s all going to be very relaxed and fun, Kate is hoping the Queen will drop by, because the two are remarkably close," the insider said. "They bonded big time and really enjoy each other’s company. Since this is going to be a first for royals, Kate would love the Queen to be part of it.”
She’s nearly six months pregnant and Kate Middleton is already planning her baby shower! Luckily, the Duchess of Cambridge comes from a family of party gurus, including sister Pippa.
