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.
