It's all fun and games until someone pulls a piece on a paparazzo.

As we previously reported, Pippa Middleton is at the center of a gun scandal after she and her friends went for a spin in a convertible last weekend.

After partying at a raucous bash in Paris until 5 a.m., Pips was spotted leaving in a car with friends, when the driver took out what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol and aimed it at a celebrity news photographer. But was the gun even real?

Royal Scandal

Sitting in the passenger seat, Pippa Middleton laughed.

Nobody's laughing now. Especially not her in-laws.

"This is embarrassing for them," a royal source says. The surprising scandal "has put [Kate Middleton] in a very difficult position," the source adds.

However, it appears that the excitement, which included reports that Pippa Middleton could face criminal charges, may have been overblown.

ABC News reports that the photographer claims he knew all along that the gun was a fake and has been telling people he never felt scared by it.

Pippa Middleton could face criminal charges after a male companion was reportedly caught brandishing a gun and allegedly pointing it at a photographer.

The younger sister of Kate Middleton was in the passenger seat of an Audi convertible with three male friends Sunday in Paris when all hell broke loose.

The driver allegedly reached for a semi-automatic gun and jokingly aimed it at a celebrity gossip photographer following them, London's The Sun reports.

Pip Pip Hoo-ray

The image, released to the Sun by the French photographer at whom the pistol was aimed, shows Middleton looking back at the paparazzo and grinning.

The paper reported that the Paris Judicial Police department is "poised" to launch a probe into the incident. Charges could result in prison sentences.

Even if the gun turns out to be a fake, criminal charges are possible.

"If the evidence points to her involvement, she will be prosecuted. Anybody involved in the illegal use of a handgun in public is liable to arrest," a source said.

The French photographer is still weighing whether to file a formal police complaint, the Sun's royal editor, Duncan Larcombe, confirmed this morning.

The Royal Wedding couldn't have gone better for the UK's first family, but semi-racy Pippa Middleton pictures continue to surface and cause a stir online.

Pippa, the younger and less reserved sister of newly-crowned Duchess Catherine, is simply doing what a stunning, twenty-something party girl does.

But when your sister marries Prince William, everything is scrutinized.

One shows Pippa in a bra and short white skirt grinding with a guy who's clearly psyched. Not something Queen Elizabeth would be psyched about.

"They were taken a few years ago," says CBS News Royal Contributor Victoria Arbiter of the racy snaps. "Yes, Pippa is in her underwear, but she's not doing anything illegal. They're the sort of pictures that crop up for pretty much any college student."

"It's just unfortunate that Pippa's learning about fame the hard way. "

So how are Pippa and her royal in-laws handling the controversy?
