    When I looked at the Herald online, three of the first six stories were about ‘Pippa.’
    “Pippa Middleton beamed with pride as she left the church as a married woman,” so I had to click in to find what it was all about.

    The second paragraph started, “It was the moment the world had been waiting for…”

    Because it was the moment I’d been waiting for I admit I needed to Google ‘Pippa’ to find out who she was! 😊
