Meet the 'Pipparettes'- Pippa Middleton's posse

June 8, 2011 - Washington

Pippa Middleton's may have a never-ending list of acquaintances, but the royal bridesmaid swears by her Pipparettes, Alice St. John Webster, Camilla Campion-Awwad and George Percy.

Her sporty girlfriend Alice St. John Webster is a close friend of both Pippa and Prince William's pal Guy Pelly.

An integral member of the 'Glosse Posse,' the 'fun, outgoing and bubbly' 9-year-old is fiercely protective of Pippa with whom she played tennis in the school team.

"Alice was part of "a very tight group [with the Middletons] and all best friends from the age of 14 upwards," People magazine quoted a friend as telling Britain's Daily Mail.

Pippa's second friend Camilla Campion-Awwad is known as being the high-maintenance party girl. According to friends, the 27-year-old is a regular visitor at Middletons' Bucklebury home.

"She's a nice girl, but she expects the finer things in life. Camilla always wanted to go to the best places and drink champagne and fine wines," revealed an acquaintance.

Completing Pippa's posse is 26-year-old George Percy, son of the Duke of Northumberland and who studied at the University of Edinburgh, even rooming there with Pippa.

Although romance rumours did not spare them, the pair is not currently a couple.

"If anything were ever to happen with George, Pippa would be the Duchess of Northumberland one day and probably richer than Kate," said an Edinburgh source.
