When society pages aren't speculating on Kate Middleton's every move (oh wait, that's us), they're collectively asking, "But what shall Pippa Middleton do?" And now one has answered that question by being the answer: Vanity Fair announced that Pippa will be its newest contributing editor. Her first piece is on Wimbledon because she likes tennis a lot. And she's British.
According to the announcement, this is the first of many columns for the sister to royalty, and each one will explain to Americans the ins and outs of British pastimes. The mag's editor Graydon Carter noted, "We're delighted to have Pippa as a contributor to Vanity Fair. She's a keen observer of classic British pastimes. She is also an avid sportswoman, and we look forward to her take on traditional English pursuits, beginning with Wimbledon." That still doesn't explain why she would register a limited company in London, but regardless, time to celebrate getting a job, Pip.
