Pippa Middleton has been caught up in a scandal in Paris after pictures emerged of her sitting in the passenger seat of an Audi convertible while the driver of the car, Arthur de Soultrait, can clearly be seen pointing what looks like a semi-automatic pistol at a photographer.
The images were captured on Saturday and are sure to leave the royal family red-faced.
Pippa is set to be questioned by police in Paris over the incident, according to reports coming out of London.
An insider told the UK Sun: “If the evidence points to her involvement, she will be prosecuted. Anybody involved in the illegal use of a handgun in public is liable to arrest and interrogation.”
If it is determined the gun is real, the driver could face seven years behind bars; if fake, it would be a two-year sentence.
The newspaper’s royal editor Duncan Larcombe told Good Morning America on Monday, “We’re told [the French photographer the man allegedly aimed the gun at] isn’t ruling anything out yet.”
