Pippa Middleton is considering a move New York City, reports say.
According to Grazia magazine, Middleton is contemplating decamping from London to the Big Apple sometime in the near future. The magazine claims that the younger sister of Kate Middleton has been considering a move away from London, where her every move is followed obsessively by paparazzi, for some time. While Middleton had originally envisioned herself in Paris, she has reportedly changed her mind following an incident in April in the city when she was snapped in a car alongside lawyer Romain Rabillard as he pointed a fake gun at photographers. While Middleton was not questioned by police in the incident, toy weapons are frowned upon in French culture and her reputation has been damaged, sources say.
"Pippa had been considering a move to Paris. But now that's off the list she has been investigating her options in America," a source tells the magazine. "She would love to move to New York as she'll be spending time there when her book launches in the autumn."
Since the April incident, Middleton has reportedly quit her job at the London catering firm Table Talk and has laid low in general. She has also reportedly employed the services of David Wynne-Morgan of the public relations firm Pelham Bell Pottinger to help her rehab her image.
Sources say that Middleton considers New York the perfect place to prepare for the release of her party planning guide, "Celebrate," which will be in bookstores in October. Sources further that the move would also help Middleton further repair her reputation.Follow @PageSix
