New York City may be getting the royal treatment! NBC is set to offer Pippa Middleton a high-paying role as a Royal Correspondent for “The Today Show,” according to the UK Mirror. The network is reportedly planning to offer the 29-year-old media rookie $600,000 for 20 annual appearances — the same amount that Penguin Group advanced her to write her party-planning book, Celebrate.
“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,” revealed a source. “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. 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.”
