Pippa Middleton is reportedly in talks to work as a correspondent on NBC’s Today show in the US.

The 31-year-old has been sent to Utah on a test shoot, according to the New York Post.

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge is said to be in talks to work on the popular breakfast show following her interview with Matt Lauer last June, which was a ratings hit for the network.

A source told the paper: “Today has been doing a test piece with Pippa in Utah, and if it works out well – and it looks like it will – they will hire her as a correspondent.”

But a representative for NBC denied reports when the New York Post first ran a story about Middleton joining the station in June.

“This is 100 per cent not true and it seems anyone suggesting otherwise is ‘royally’ jealous,” the spokesperson said.

Middleton currently works part-time for her parents’ company Party Pieces, editing the online magazine Party Times.

In 2012, she published a party planning book called Celebrate, which received lower than anticipated sales.

She is currently a contributing editor of Vanity Fair and previously wrote a fortnightly sports column for The Sunday Telegraph.
