Pippa Middleton has been criticised for cashing in on her relations with the royal family by trying to land a 1.5 million-dollar deal to write a party planning book.

It is rumoured that she is attempting to cash-in on her family's party planning business and her sister's fame.

“The sight of minor royals and royals-in-law… cashing in on their regal connections irritates the Great British public at the best of times,” Us magazine quoted Daily Beast website as reporting.

It said that given the country’s economy this is a wrong time to be touting a book on entertaining.

“(This is) hardly the perfect moment, culturally, for a privileged young lady who will one day be the queen’s sister to be bringing out a guide to entertaining in style,” the site goes on to say.
