'Gun' Incident: Pippa Unlikely To Face Inquiry
Pippa Middleton is unlikely to be investigated over an incident involving a gun or replica gun at the weekend in Paris, French police have said.
The incident, involving the Duchess of Cambridge's sister and her three male friends, saw the driver point what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol at a photographer in broad daylight.
Ms Middleton, 27, had been photographed attending a friend's birthday fancy-dress party in the French capital on Saturday night.
The following day while seated in a top of the range Audi convertible, the driver pulled out, brandished and pointed a gun on a pursuing photographer.
Police were not able to say whether the gun was real or a replica toy gun.
In the back seat of the sports car transporting Ms Middleton to the Eurostar terminal was her old friend and birthday boy Viscount Arthur de Soultrait.
St James' Palace would not comment on the actions of the Prince William's sister-in-law.
French police say they are aware of the photographs but said no complaint had been made.
The incident comes just weeks after seven people were murdered in Toulouse and four shot dead in Paris.
The police say they are continuing to look at the matter, but confirm they will not be talking to Ms Middleton.
There has been no comment from the Middleton family.
