As you might have heard, Pippa Middleton is the new contributing editor for Vanity Fair… on all things Wimbledon!
For her first piece, in a series of columns she'll be writing, she has a personal guide for those who watch Wimbledon — including a cute story about how she fell in love with the tournament at an early age!
Here's what she wrote:
"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."
While that might not have come true, her love for the tournament has never been stronger!
She continues with another story:
"Queuing from five a.m. on ‘People's Sunday' in 2004 with my sister for three hours and getting £35 tickets on Centre Court; my first time ever. Seats were a free-for-all—and I recall almost tripping over myself trying to get as close as possible to my birthday-twin British hero Tim Henman."
We think this is a fab opportunity for her, and it's nice to see that she's so passionate about it!
The column this month even even has a Q&A with Roger Federer!
