Kate Middleton gets a low-key bachelorette party from sister Pippa

March 29, 2011 |  3:37 pm

Prince William
reportedly enjoyed a "legendary" bachelor weekend recently, and now come reports that his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton, has had her final single-lady celebration as well.

The future princess attended a quiet "hen night," as our friends across the pond call it, thrown by sister Pippa, with several close pals in tow.

There's nary a detail from the affair — whether it included, for example, feather boas or bawdy girl games (Kate certainly doesn't seem the type to enjoy an X-rated scavenger hunt, anyhow) — but several outlets are saying the low-key celebration did indeed go down.

It was so on the hush-hush that even the guests are merely a source of speculation: Likely partyers include Princess Beatrice, Alicia Fox-Pitt (who shared an apartment with William and Kate at the University of St. Andrews) and Rose Astor, the wife of Wills pal Hugh van Custem.

We previously reported that Pippa, who will serve as Kate's maid of honor, booked four separate locations for the big night in hopes of throwing off paparazzi.
