NBC may offer Pippa Middleton, the younger sister to the Duchess of Cambridge, a spot hosting the “Today” show, according to Page Six.

Matt Lauer revealed Wednesday that Pippa is sitting down with NBC for her first-ever television interview, which will air Monday and Tuesday. The “Today” show previewed a teaser of the interview, with Lauer reporting from London.

The interview is meant to show “what it’s like to be Pippa,” her relationship with Kate, and her trek with her brother James for Bike Across America.

A source to Page Six said NBC and other major networks have fancied signing her “for some time.”

“NBC is set to make a fresh approach following the interview,” the source said.

The story also reports that NBC was allegedly going to offer her a $600,000 deal in 2012, but an NBC spokeswoman denied the rumor, and also denied the additional offer.

But, all hope may not be lost. In the preview of her interview with Lauer, Pippa had this to say about the United States:

“I love it. It’s very friendly, very welcoming. And we felt that the entire way. The scenery was incredible. And I think that what lifted our spirits when it really hurt, sort of grinding on the bike, was to see everything around us. From the mountains, the desert — through the flat plains of Kansas.”
