For all those journalists out there plugging away and never really getting where in the hope that one day a top magazine will snap you up, take a look at Pippa Middleton.
Because unbeknown to anyone, Pippa seem’s to have the skills to achieve top jobs with very little experience – unless having a relative marry in to the Royal Family counts as experience these days?
Yesterday it was announced that Pippa Middleton, famous for being the sister of Duchess of Cambridge, will be joining Vanity Fair as contributing editor. This will be in addition to her monthly column in Waitrose Kitchen Magazine which she has been writing for the last 10 months.
Who said breaking in to the media world was hard work?
“We’re delighted to have Pippa as a contributor to Vanity Fair,” says editor Graydon Carter. “She’s a keen observer of classic British pastimes. She is also an avid sportswoman, and we look forward to her take on traditional English pursuits, beginning with Wimbledon.”
Her first feature will be her personal guide to Wimbledon? Real,hard-hitting stuff!
“I first went to Wimbledon when I was eight years old and already a very keen tennis player,” she writes in the column.
“During this first trip I acted on my childish tennis dreams and bought myself a postcard of the women’s championship trophy, on which I wrote, ‘I will win this one day,’ with my signature below.”
