Royals, they're just like us! Looks like Kate Middleton stepped up for sister duty this weekend and attended Pippa Middleton's hen party — that's Brit for bachelorette party — right under our noses. Pippa, Princess Kate, and a few close gal pals enjoyed a weekend of skiing (Pippa happens to be an avid skier) in the French Alps. The Duchess of Cambridge's husband William was partying in Switzerland the same weekend, but we're almost positive Kate had a lot more fun!
A friend close to Pippa dished on some bachelorette details to The Sun. "Pippa loves skiing so it was her first choice for a hen weekend. They stayed in a really exclusive catered chalet with maids and chef, who ensured that they were totally spoiled."
The owners of the chalet, located in Meribel, France, made sure the girls enjoyed their stay to the fullest, and even showered the party with gifts. "The owners wanted to impress the royal guests so they were given Swatch watches, Ugg slippers, leather-bound notebooks and bespoke fragrances. It was a very small, private party and they had an amazing time," the friend continued.

Pippa and longtime love James Matthews are set to wed May 20, 2017 at the St. Mark’s Englefield in Berkshire, and will host a garden reception seven miles away at Carole and Michael Middleton’s home in Bucklebury.
Matthews got down on one knee last July while on the peaks of the Lake District, and popped the question with a stunning vintage-inspired engagement ring featuring an octagonal-shaped halo.
"I think James and I have the same spirit," Pippa previously gushed of her groom-to-be. "We are both competitive. We have had many adventures together. We have a lot in common and that helps. I don't think it would work with a couch potato."
The wedding will be here before we know it!
