Pippa's double trouble

Who should we believe? Is Kate ashamed of "off-the-rails and out of control" Pippa, as New Idea suggests? Or is she in fact proud of the fact that Pippa's getting married, as the country's recently crowned supreme magazine of the year, Woman's Day suggests? Due to a pictorial whoopsie in this week's women's mags, you can take your pick. 

In the mass market weeklies, the cover is a very important piece of real estate. So two competing titles using the same shot of Pippa Middleton certainly isn't ideal. And it's not very common either. Back in 2009, NZ Life & Leisure used a Photo New Zealand stock image that was had featured on an earlier edition of Kia Ora. Paul Dykzeul took the opportunity to stick the boot in. And the faux pas generated plenty of discussion. ​

His boot may be stuck somewhere else this time.
