Talk about Princess Problems.

Kate Middleton is a Princess, and being a princess comes with great responsibility. Her sister Pippa recently announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend James Matthews. Although Kate is "absolutely delighted" at the news, it turns out she might not get to be in the bridal party.

Pippa was the breakout star of the royal wedding of the century, when she was famously criticized for wearing white and upstaging Kate.

In 2011, a People magazine cover featured her wearing white to her sister's wedding, with the headline reading "All About Pippa!"

So now that Pippa's getting married, you'd think her sister Kate would be an obvious pick for a bridesmaid. You'd be wrong.

Judy Wade, a veteran royals author, told People "If your sister is a future Queen, she is going to upstage the bride and draw attention. Kate would want to be in the background as much as possible."

Funny, considering it was Pippa stealing the show at Kate's royal wedding that put her in the spotlight to begin with.
