When Philippa first met David Elliot, she was dressed in jeans, with no make-up and her hair all over the place - and the result was that he took her for a child and treated her accordingly. Piqued by his lofty attitude, Philippa decided to carry on with the deception for the time being - which unfortunately led to complications when she found herself gradually falling in love with him. But even when the misunderstanding had been sorted out, all was not plain sailing, for David still considered her too young for him and was reluctant to commit himself too far. At least, that was what she supposed was his reason - until she discovered that there was another even more serious barrier to his ever marrying her.
