PIPPA Middleton has called in lawyers after menus from her star-studded country wedding were put on eBay for £500.

A seller using the name “guarko84na” advertised two tasteful cards – one marked “Pippa Matthews” and one “James Matthews”.

The mouthwatering three course meal included a trout starter, lamb main and cheesecake dessert.

They initially went on sale as royal memorabilia with bids starting at an eye-watering £499.

But they were withdrawn by the seller after threats of legal action from Pippa and James – who are thought to be out in French Polynesia enjoying their honeymoon.

The original eBay advert read: “Original Menus used during the wedding dinner of Pippa & James Mattews hosted in Backlebury May 20th 2017.

“They are printed on thick paper and have a light green line on the edges, the names are handwritten.

“Pippa menu is a bit dirty of food on the left side James one is clean.

The seller claimed similar photos of the invitations posted online proved the menus were genuine

“They are genuine and original, actually used for the dinner.

“As you can see in the second picture that I found online they have the same stile of the invitation to the guests.”

Security was extremely tight for the wedding – with ex-SAS soldiers called in to sweep for hidden cameras.
