Someone is getting a little cheeky ahead of her wedding, and it’s Pippa Middleton. The bride-to-be was caught squeezing her fiancé’s butt. James Matthews doesn’t reciprocate, but he is gently resting his hand on the small of her back.

The happy scene is exactly the way any engaged woman would want to start off life with her fiancé. It's an off-the-cuff moment that's sweet and naughty all at once — except most moments like this aren't caught by a paparazzo's camera. That's when you know Middleton's life is just a little bit different than yours.

Come on, you know you want to see the photo. Popsugar posted the playful photo on Thursday and it's definitely worth seeing.

Now, while you and I think it’s a fun photo, how do you think the Queen would react? Even though she’s adapted to modern times — a bit — I doubt she wants to see anyone grabbing at body parts in public. There still is a sense of protocol even when you are only royal adjacent like Middleton is to her sister and brother-in-law.

As evolved as the Queen is in 2017, you know she thinks behavior like this is improper. But let’s face it, there’s nothing she can do. Middleton is not destined for the throne, she’s a commoner who is related to royalty by marriage.

Royal watchers are expecting a big price tag on the wedding with estimates already coming in around $318,888. That's an astronomical price for Middleton's wedding. She's sparing no expense from her gown to the invite list — even Prince Harry's girlfriend, Meghan Markle reportedly scored the golden ticket to the ceremony.

While it isn't a royal wedding, all eyes will be on Middleton's nuptials because of her family members in attendance. Prince George and Princess Charlotte are participating in the big day while big sister Kate will be sitting this one out. She’s not going to upstage the bride or the hopeful post-nuptial butt grab.
