THE SIBLING'S RELATIONSHIP

Matt Lauer threw the "relationship" question to Pippa, who informed the anchor that her older sister did have her hands full of royal duties. Pippa referred to this as "pressures that she's [Kate] taken on" while going on to add that Kate tries to keep up a healthy relationship with her family. She told Matt:

"We still do a lot together as a family. And I think that's really the heart for all of us is having a really close family that we can sort of be normal with each other."

The socialite went on after Lauer asked if the two had a flexible sister-relationship; she replied in the affirmative while letting him know that she and Kate were close. She added that they still engage in sisterly talks while showing love, support, and asking opinions from each other.

KATE MIDDLETON BEFORE ROYALTY

According to the royal biographer, Katie Nicholl, in her book, "Kate: The Future Queen," the Middletons are an exceptionally close-knit family. Just as regular families enjoyed communing with one another, the Middletons were in line with this.

James was not left out as his old gimmicks while he was a young schoolboy were dug up. One of such was during his 21st birthday when he made news headlines after he "needed to be practically poured into the car."

While Pippa sat with Today in her 2014 interview, she mentioned that she felt fortunate about her older sister's fame due to opportunities she got, James, on the other hand, does not seem to enjoy the public attention as he once explained to Daily Mail.
