The Prince not keen on having his sister-in-law live with him and Kate

Kate Middleton’s relationship with sister Pippa came under strain in April when Pippa, 28, hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

She embarrassed Kate, 30, by attending a fancy dress party in Paris where a stripper jumped out of a cake to God Save The Queen.

Then the next day she was caught smirking as friend Romain Rabillard apparently pointed a gun at paparazzi.

But the sisters called a truce three weeks ago on the advice of Wills and Prince Harry.

Pippa – who’s just reunited with banker ex Alex Loudon – agreed to follow a set of rules laid down by Buckingham Palace to curb her partying.

But when Kate suggested moving Pippa into Nottingham Cottage, her and Wills’ two-bedroom home in the grounds of Kensington Palace, Prince William, 30, put his foot down.

Our source says: ‘Kate was disappointed, but she understood what Wills was saying.’
