Pippa Middleton is waging a legal battle over spoof publications which imagines Pippa Middleton’s advice on pregnancy and parenting.

Mat Morrisroe and Suzanne Azzopardi, the creators of the Twitter account @Pippatips,

The Twitter account was created in 2012, shortly after the October publication of Pippa’s book Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Family and Friends, and spoofed Pippa’s tendency to oversimplify lifestyle advice. The creators of the page quickly acquired more than 50,000 followers by tweeting tips such as:

“Form friendships by being nice to people you like,” and “A nice hat can help keep the sun off, simply place on your head et voila – your own personal, portable shade.”

Once Kate Middleton announced her pregnancy in December, the writers began tweeting pregnancy advice such as, “If your old clothes don’t fit, why not buy new ones with space for your bump?” and “During later pregnancy you may not be able to see your feet. They’re most likely still there, so make

Then  the pair decided to turn their project into book “When One is Expecting: A Posh Person’s Guide to Pregnancy and Parenting”.

The guide includes advice such as: “You will probably undergo lots of tests at this point. Don’t worry though, you won’t need to revise.”

Although the duo’s book was published in June, Middleton’s lawyers Harbottle & Lewis have written to the book’s publishers, Icon Books, to demand the @Pippatips Twitter account be deleted.

Icon Books declined to comment. Harbottle & Lewis said it did not comment on client matters.
