Pippa Middleton’s column in the Daily Telegraph has been dropped after staff reportedly discovered “readers just weren’t into it”.
According to US Weekly, the Telegraph “ran out of ideas” for what the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister could write about.
Middleton (pictured: Reuters), who still writes for Waitrose Kitchen and Vanity Fair, began working for the newspaper in September last year, and she hasn’t been published now since the end of March.
A source told US Weekly: “There was a lot of negative mail coming in after each column and there were too many off-limit subjects for her. They ran out of ideas.”
In her six months at the paper, Middleton wrote about an array of subjects, including the Oxbridge boat race, volleyball, pancakes, oysters, table tennis and, in her first column, boxing, which she described as a “pure but pleasing agony”.
Press Gazette is awaiting comment from the Telegraph.
