Pippa Middleton 'likened to a dog' in best man's speech that leaves 'guests squirming'
The best man's speech is said to have ruffled a few feathers at Pippa Middleton and James Matthews wedding reception.
Best man Justin Johannsen's speech reportedly entered the realm of bad taste and left some of the 300 wedding guests "squirming in their seats".
Johannsen, who is a long-time friend of James Matthews, delivered his speech at 11.30pm after a five-course in the £100,00 glass marquee on the grounds of the Middleton family home.
He opened by thanking guests for making the journey to the wedding and paid tribute to the flower girls and page boys who helped make the day "special".
But it's reported the tone went downhill quickly with a string of lewd gags, including references to lads' weekends, gay bars and the bride's bottom.
The Daily Mail report that the best man compared Pippa to James' spaniel Rafa, quipping: "Now, to the love of James' life. Beautiful, energetic, loyal, soft mouth, comes on command, great behind - that's enough about James' spaniel Rafa."
Earlier in the speech, Johannsen was kinder to Pippa, praising her "gutsiness, spirit and beauty" and describing the bride as "the image of perfection".
