Pippa Middleton for hire at R1.1m

15 May 2012, 09:39

Los Angeles - An American business is claiming it can hire out Pippa Middleton for R1.1m per appearance.

Celebrity Talent Promotions says Pippa - the sister of Britain's Duchess Catherine - is available for "corporate appearances, speaking engagements, endorsements and autograph signings" and has posted a picture of the 28-year-old beauty on its website.

Below the image it says: "We are a celebrity booking agency that also hires Pippa Middleton... as a keynote presenter for speaking engagements, trade shows, conventions and store grand openings."

It adds that, for a price, she can be booked for "event hosting, licensing deals, product endorsements, print advertising and television commercials".

However, Pippa is not connected to the Florida-based firm and cannot be hired out by them.

When newspaper the Daily Star Sunday phoned asking to book Pippa, they were told it would cost £62 000 (R808 000) to £93 000 (R1.2m).

Worker Adam Plotkin added: "You have to understand that she is connected to royalty so there are security issues here. The final figure might even be much higher.

"We're talking about two or three first-class round-trip airline tickets from London, plus five-star hotel accommodation while she's here. If you email me all the details about your event we will forward them to her."

An official spokesperson for Pippa - sister-in-law of future king Prince William - promised an immediate investigation, adding: "This company does not represent my client and has no authority to make these claims about her on its website. We will be contacting them about this issue."

Most men after many years of marriage are confused and if not many, let us presume maybe five to eight years. They start to wonder why the wife has changed and is no longer the sweet accommodating type. Read more...
