Pippa Middleton is currently is caught up in a legal battle with the author of a spoof book, The Independent has revealed today.




The book, entitled 'When One Is Expecting', was written by the creator of the spoof Twitter account '@pippatips', which has now generated over 50,000 followers. It offers advice on pregnancy, including posh tips on how to care for a royal heir.



Quotes include: 'At 27 weeks your baby is as long as a Magnum of Bollinger Special Cuvee,' and 'If you are overdue, the midwife may offer to induce your baby. This is a medical procedure in which doctors attempt to bride the baby out through inducements like toys and/or money.'



The book parodies Pippa's now-famous book 'Celebrate' which received much media criticism for its thought to be 'obvious' party-planning tips.





The authors behind the book and the Twitter account have not tweeted since 14 June, when they shared the post: 'Britons; save time by not bothering to watch weather forecasts and simply assuming it's going to be cold and overcast all the time.'



Despite the fact the book was published last month, The Independent states that Pippa Middleton's lawyers have written to the publishers, Icon Books, to demand that the accompanying Twitter account be deleted.
