Fined: Pippa Middleton takes a parking ticket off her windscreen after she was spotted by a warden in London

Since she sashayed down the aisle at her sister's wedding, Pippa Middleton has become used to being the centre of attention.

But yesterday the 27-year-old must have wished her antics were not so eye-catching - after she was spotted by a parking warden.

Pippa parked her convertible £40,000 BMW Z4 outside Scott's Restaurant in Mayfair while she attended a meeting. But when she returned, she found a ticket on the windscreen.

It is not the first time Pippa - nicknamed Her Royal Hotness after her role as maid of honour at her sister Kate's wedding to Prince William in April - has had car trouble.

Just weeks ago, the same car was clamped near to her home in Chelsea.

There have been reports that Pippa is planning to upgrade the Z4 soft-top to an armoured car for protection.

Her millionaire parents Michael and Carole were said to want to buy Pippa a £95,000 bomb-proof Audi or BMW for her safety after she has been propelled into the spot light following the Royal Wedding.

Like her sister Kate, she has become a fashion idol with the clothes and accessories she wears flying off the shelves after she's pictured in them. So no doubt, hand bag makers Modalu were delighted she was carrying one of their bags, aptly named the 'Pippa', when she made her parking gaffe yesterday.

While her sister settles into a quiet married life on Anglesey, Pippa has been spotted enjoying nights out in the capital.

Last week, she partied with her boyfriend Alex Loudon at Public nightclub, favoured by young royals Prince Harry and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
