Pippa Middleton 'offered $600k deal to become Royal reporter'
London, Dec. 16 (ANI): Pippa Middleton is tipped to become a Royal reporter for a US TV station for 600,000 dollars, it has been revealed.
Bosses on 'The Today Show' want the Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister to become a Royal correspondent, covering events such as 'Chelsea Flower Show' or discussing topics like the opening up of Buckingham Palace, the Daily Mail reported.
Executives are hoping that the 29-year-old socialite, who will only have to appear 20 times on the show to earn her fee, will be a big draw to US audiences following the announcement of the Duchess' pregnancy.
It had been rumoured that NBS bosses cooled on asking Middleton after her coffee table book 'Celebrate' failed to sell out as expected.
"NBC senior figures will bill this job to Pippa as a special corespondent in 2013," an NBC source told The Sunday Mirror.
"They see her appeal as huge as she is linked to the Royal family.
"A couple of offers are on the table. She would not focus on intimate Royal subjects like Wills and Kate's move to London or the family Christmas," the source said.
The source added that she has been promised editorial input on coverage and said that every item she were to record would be recorded so not to "catch her out." (ANI)
