Pippa Middleton is reportedly set to become a royal reporter for US morning television in a $600,000 deal.
The brunette, younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge is wanted by producers of NBC’s ‘The Today Show’ to cover high profile royal events in the UK.
A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “NBC senior figures will bill this job to Pippa as a special correspondent in 2013.
“They see her appeal as huge as she is linked to the royal family and because of her popularity following the wedding when pictures of her went worldwide.
“A couple of offers are on the table, but they would like her to make as many as 20 appearances reporting on royal-themed events like the Chelsea Flower Show, the opening of Buckingham Palace and Opera House nights.”
However, Pippa will not focus on intimate royal moments such as the birth of Prince William and Kate’s first child and Prince Harry’s return from Afghanistan.
She will also not be appearing live as she will pre-record the segments.
The source added: “The offer gives Pippa the chance to have editorial input on what she says, and as most of this work would be pre-recorded she would not be caught out.”
