Much about the preparations for Kate Middleton's wedding to Prince William are being kept under wraps, but we can be assured of at least one thing: her bachelorette party will be the "time of her life."
That's because Kate's sister, Pippa, is planning a Dirty Dancing themed "hen party," as the British call it. The event will take place at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, England. The girls' mother, Carole, is expected to attend.
In addition to the gala in Bucklebury, Pippa, 27, also is busy arranging a second bachelorette party in London for her older sis Kate, 29, and her gal pals. The secrecy level on this one is high -- so much so that Pippa supposedly booked four venues to throw off snoopers. Even guests don't know where they will be headed, though the future Queen of England is said to have some favorite local pubs, including Eighty-Six, a trendy bar in Fulham, West London, and a nightclub called Public, located in Chelsea.
"None of the girls know where they will be going -- and won't until the actual day," a source tells London's Daily Mail newspaper.
Meanwhile, rumors abound that Prince William's bachelor party will be a watery affair, with a day of water sports with Prince Harry and other close friends, to be followed by a barbecue and a trip to visit pubs only accessible by boat.
