Pippa Middleton Wants "Pippa's Tips" Parody Twitter Account Shut Down

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Pippa Middleton is pissed about a Twitter account called "Pippa's Tips," which spoofs advice she gives in her party planning book and applies them to pregnancy and parenting.

With sister Kate Middleton on the verge of giving birth any day now (her rumored due date is July 23), Pips has launched a legal fight over the parody.

According to the U.K.'s Independent, the Twitter page calls itself "an obvious parody" and was started by writers Mat Morrisroe and Suzanne Azzopardi.

It pokes fun at Pippa Middleton by parodying advice she offers in her party-planning tome, Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends.

But with 50,000 followers, @Pippatips has become extremely popular.

So much so that it landed the duo a book deal, which led to the publication of When One is Expecting: A Posh Person's Guide to Pregnancy and Parenting.

The mock guide purports to offer answers to such "common" parenting questions as "Is caviar suitable for weaning?" one's very own little prince(ss).

Apparently, the younger Middleton isn't pleased with the Twitter page that started it all and put her legal team at Harbottle & Lewis on the case.

Her lawyers have since sent a letter to Icon Books, Morrisroe and Azzopardi's publisher, demanding it take down @Pippatips or face legal action.

Reps for Harbottle & Lewis and Icon Books were unavailable for comment. As was Pippa, who rarely if ever comments on anything Pippa related.

Gotta maintain that air of mystery, right?
