Now that she’s one of the most famous women in the world, the Dutchess of Cambridge is a prime target for nutters. Kate Middleton had to undergo personal safety training on how to handle a kidnapping. The British Special Air Service, or SAS, trained Middleton on “key survival skills such as noticing anything unusual in routine surroundings, how to react when attacked and how to build a relationship with hostage-takers,” according to the UK’s Sun.

Is Pippa Middleton interesting enough to warrant her own hour-long TLC special? Someone thinks so! “Crazy About Pippa” will air August 9th at 9 p.m. (EST) and will dish about all fascinating things Pippa-related: her famous sister, her famous sister, her famous sister, and oh yeah, her butt.
