The magazine announced Middleton’s new column when she debuted her first piece, detailing her (and her sister Kate’s) obsession with tennis.
“I first went to Wimbledon when I was eight years old and already a very keen tennis player. During this first trip I acted on my childish tennis dreams and bought myself a postcard of the women’s championship trophy, on which I wrote, ‘I will win this one day,’ with my signature below,” writes Pippa, also detailing how at one point she said she’d get married in her “tennis whites.”
“We’re delighted to have Pippa as a contributor to Vanity Fair,” says editor Graydon Carter. “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.”
Middleton also does an interview with tennis great Roger Federer for her debut in Vanity Fair. Will you be following her Wimbledon coverage this summer?
Wimbledon kicks off in London, England on June 24 and runs through July 7.
