Pippa Middleton gives first ever TV interview

Pippa Middleton has filmed her first ever TV interview with US network The Today Show.

In a teaser video featuring the Duchess of Cambridge's 30-year-old sister, host Matt Lauer billed the hour-long interview as a preview of "what it's like to be Pippa."

Lauer joked that he had to fly to London to speak to the party planner, with Middleton replying: "I hate to say it but I was actually in America last week," laughing as she added, "Sorry."

The interview, which will be aired in two parts on Monday and Tuesday next week, will also cover Middleton's recent 3,000-mile charity bike ride across the US.

But she has written in The Spectator: "Team Johnson insisted that the match should be held at a venue of their choosing.

"I said by all means. And then — nothing.

"The Spectator has tried to follow up, but now it’s radio silence from the Mayor’s office. Is Boris scared or what? He should be."

Pippa Middleton has revealed how she was left embarrassed at Wimbledon after her father mistakenly cheered on Pete Sampras instead of British hopeful Tim Henman.

Writing for magazine Vanity Fair, she said: "When Tim Henman walked on to the court, the crowd cheered him, and as he walked near our seats my dad mistakenly yelled 'Come on Pete'."

Ms Middleton also recalled queuing for the Championships with her older sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, on People's Sunday in 2004 to get £35 Centre Court tickets.
