Pippa haters look away now. Mr Steerpike has learned that she has been included on a list of the most influential journalists in London. According to the Evening Standard’s Power 1000 (which has a section devoted to Fleet Street):
‘It says much about the state of modern journalism that Prince William’s sister-in-law is so in demand as a columnist for Vanity Fair and Waitrose Kitchen amongst others.’
Yes, and Mr S can think of another esteemed organ where Pippa regularly features...
There was uproar when Pippa replaced Christopher Hitchens as a contributing editor of Vanity Fair. This list is sure to sooth those sceptics.
