Kate and Pippa competed over boys
But within minutes of arriving at Westminster Abbey in that dress, Pippa, 27, overtook her sister to become the most sought-after Middleton.
Pippa‘s relationship with her sister Kate, 29, is clearly a close one – but that wasn’t always the case.
‘Pippa was always more liked at school than Kate because she was very outgoing while Kate was more of a loner,’ an insider tells Now.
‘This led to a bit of friction between them and Pippa would sometimes take pleasure in winding her up.
‘Things got better by the time Kate was 18 as she’d be invited to parties and Pippa would always want to tag along.
‘As always, all the attention would go to Pippa and she’d compete with her sister over boys.
‘In fact, Kate tended to get dating advice from her little sister.’
