THE royal family's most famous sibling, is to become a columnist for supermarket Waitrose's monthly magazine.
Kate Middleton's sister will pen a column called Pippa's Friday Night Feasts which will feature "casual dining ideas and recipes" and will be available in the UK supermarket chain.
Pippa, who was propelled into the spotlight as a bridesmaid at Kate's wedding to Prince William, said she was delighted to be writing for Waitrose Kitchen and looking forward to sharing her "own passion and enthusiasm for food and entertaining".
The first column will appear in the April edition, with Pippa featuring on the front cover.
Miss Middleton said: "I'm delighted to be writing for Waitrose Kitchen, a magazine that's always been a source of inspiration to me, for its extensive spectrum of food and beautiful style.
"My column, 'Pippa's Friday Night Feasts' will be an exciting opportunity to share my own passion and enthusiasm for food and entertaining and I can't wait to get started."
Last year, she launched her first book Celebrate - aimed as a one-stop guide to entertaining throughout the year.
But the publication was mocked by some for its over simplistic advice and even sparked a parody Twitter account @PippaTips.
William Sitwell, editor of Waitrose Kitchen, welcomed the appointment.
"Pippa will be an excellent contributor to the magazine, bringing with her a wealth of experience of entertaining, gained in part from working at her family's party business," he said.
"Readers will love her relaxed and easy entertaining ideas which will help with the preparation for all sorts of occasions."
