  • Kate Middleton's sister, Pippa Middleton, apparently used a pseudonym when she called a taxi.
  • Apparently Pippa used a fake name that wasn't as incognito as it could've been.

As the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton regularly finds herself flung into the spotlight. So it's perhaps no surprise that the mother-of-one goes by a fake name when she orders a taxi.

According to the Daily Mail, a taxi driver got suspicious when a woman ordered a cab and used the surname Middleton. Per the publication's source, 'She ordered a taxi for Lucy Middleton and kept ringing, asking if I was there yet because she was hiding in a dark doorway.'

The driver continued, 'I later Googled the name and saw Lucy Middleton [Pippa and Kate’s cousin] in a picture with Pippa, and realised it was actually Pippa in my cab.' Whether or not Pippa definitely ordered the taxi under a false name is hard to prove, but we can imagine why she'd want to remain incognito.

In late 2019, Pippa revealed that she'd been taking her son, Arthur, for cranial osteopathy. Kate's sister wrote in Waitrose Weekend magazine, 'Soon after Arthur was born last year, I heard a few mums talking about seeing a cranial osteopath. It’s a popular alternative therapy for newborns, particularly those who have had a traumatic birth, are unsettled, or have trouble sleeping. It claims to heal, relax and promote sleep, digestion and body alignment through gentle head and body manipulation. While there is a lack of scientific evidence, after hearing positive things about it (and out of intrigue more than anything else), I took Arthur when he was seven months old.'
