Pippa Middleton jets to New York for job talks with US network NBC

Pippa Middleton jetted to New York this week for talks about working as a correspondent for US network NBC.

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, arrived in the Big Apple on Monday and less than 12 hours later caught an internal flight to Wyoming, where it is believed she filmed a test piece for the popular Today show.

There the 31-year-old was spotted at a hoedown dance with locals, where she got into the spirit of things and was seen laughing as she performed a routine which involved twirling and sashaying.


The pretty brunette dressed in a blue and white checked shirt, fitted jeans and ankle boots for the event, her trademark brunette locks glossy and loose around her shoulders.

The talks are understood to have been sparked following Pippa's interview with Matt Lauer last June, which saw a peak in ratings for the network.

She piqued NBC's interest when she chatted over tea about her sister Kate and baby nephew, Prince George – although it is believed she would focus on sports and lifestyle in her new role.

A source told the New York Post: "Today has been doing a test piece with Pippa in Utah, and if it works out well – and it looks like it will – they will hire her as a correspondent."

Kate's younger sister currently works part-time for her parents' company Party Pieces, editing the online magazine of the same name.

The author of Celebrate is also currently a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and previously wrote a fortnightly sports column for The Sunday Telegraph, as well as a column for supermarket Waitrose magazine, Waitrose Kitchen.

Pippa isn't the first with royal connections to dabble in TV. Charles Spencer, the brother of the late Princess Diana, worked on NBC in the 1980s and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex formed the production company, Ardent, in 1993.
