Pippa Middleton Talks Fame, Charity And THAT Dress In First Ever TV Interview
Rex Features

Pippa Middleton has broken her media silence at long last to give her first televised interview for The Today Show in the USA. Watch the full video...

Pippa Middleton might have been thrust into the media spotlight when she acted as bridesmaid for sister Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding back in 2011, but it might surprise you to learn that she's only just broken her long-standing silence to give her first ever televised interview.

Speaking to The Today Show in America, Pippa chatted about her charity work, fame and, of course, about that bridesmaid dress... 

Talking about her sister's royal wedding, she said that she didn't realise the scale of the event until later on in the day. In the midst of getting ready and 'helping her sister', she and her family viewed the day as 'a regular family wedding'. Then, as the conversation shifted to her bridesmaid ensemble, Pippa set the record straight, saying 'It wasn't planned, the dress was almost meant to be insignificant. [It was] just to blend in with the train', referring to her sister's stunning lace wedding gown. Both dresses, designed by Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton, were made to match each other, and the attention that Pippa received due to the slim-fitting cut of her own was completely unexpected. And although she admits the buzz was certainly 'flattering', she also added it was 'definitely embarrassing'. With a figure like that, you don't have anything to be embarrassed about, Pip...

Later in the interview, Pippa is asked about what her new-found fame has meant to her and, while she says it definitely has its ups and downs, she's generally in awe at the 'amazing opportunities' it has presented her with, allowing her to do and experience things she would never have the chance to do otherwise. One of which being her recent charity work. 

Pippa has just completed an unbelievable feat: biking 3000 miles across 12 US states in 6 days, all in aid of The British Heart Foundation and The Mike Matthew's Foundation. If that's not an accomplishment, we don't know what is...
