Satirical photographer recreates royal wedding with Pippa look-alike

London: New pictures have emerged that show Pippa Middleton openly flirting with Prince Harry at the royal reception of the Prince William and Kate wedding.

At one point Pippa even cheekily feeds Harry a bit of cake, smiling coyly as she pops it into his mouth, confirming what most of Britain had been suspecting.

In another shot Pippa is seen checking out her best asset – her backside – in a mirror.

But all is not as it seems, because the whole thing is a set up and the Pippa in question is actually a look-alike - 32-year-old hospital worker Sarah Carrington.

It is the work of British top photographer Alison Jackson, who has used her wild imagination as to what may have happened behind the scenes on April 29 this year.

The photographer said that she had a hard time finding a look-alike of Pippa because of her ‘unusual look’.

“Pippa actually has a very unusual look. I did a lot of castings for bum-alikes, face-alikes, and body-alikes, but it was getting quite desperate,” the Daily Star quoted Jackson as saying.

“It’s been almost impossible to find a decent double of her,” she said.

She found Carrington after her boyfriend sent her photographs to a look-alike agency.

“When I saw her, I knew she was ideal,” the photographer said.

“My friends were all telling me that I looked like Pippa but I could never see it,” the south London based Carrington said.

She said that she was once out with her boyfriend when a woman mistook her for Pippa Middleton.

“That’s when my boyfriend decided to send a picture into the agency,” she said.

Jackson’s website said that she makes convincingly realistic work about celebrities doing things in private using look-alikes.

“She comments on our voyeurism, on the power and seductive nature of imagery, and on our need to believe,” it said.
