Are Kate and Pippa Middleton feuding over NBC Today Show talks?
Is Pippa Middleton currently on Duchess Kate and Prince William's bad side? The royal-in-law has reportedly upset her sister as she attempts to land a job on NBC's Today show. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are apparently none-too-pleased with the attention Pippa's new role may draw to the royal family, and aren't thrilled with her career ambitions.
Recent reports say that Pippa has been traveling through the states this week to meet with 'Today Show' executives in New York and discuss a new job. She was also seen down in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, filming an audition segment where she got decked-out in plaid and cowboy boots, and danced with the locals. (Seriously!)
We had a sneaky feeling that Queen Elizabeth wouldn't love the idea of Pippa becoming a correspondent for NBC, but now it seems Kate is equally discouraged. The royal family has never particularly loved the press, especially after the way Princess Diana was harassed by paparazzi -- so we wonder if Pippa clamoring to join the "dark side" is also a part of their issue with this new job.
This isn't the first time there's been some tension between Kate and Pippa, either. In the summer of 2013, Kate reportedly asked Pippa to tone down her public appearances, and take a step out of the limelight for a bit. At the time, she'd been attending a lot of high-profile events, and was also writing for several magazines including Vanity Fair.
A source told the Daily Mail that "Kate and William didn't want her to write her party planning book Celebrate, let alone a regular column in various magazines. They have spoken to her about this."
