Waitrose magazine has been singing new royal aunty Pippa Middleton's praises. Well, kind of.

Editorial director of John Brown Media, which publishes Waitrose Kitchen magazine, said Pippa "works very hard" when she's in the office for a couple of days every second month.

Hmmm, sometime we wish we only had to work every other month. *Sigh*. William told The New York Times that "she has impressed the whole team here" after she replaced 72-year-old Delia Smith as a regular columnist.

Some of the mag's long-time readers weren't exactly impressed when the Duchess of Cambridge's sister took beloved chef Delia's place with one taking to Waitrose's Facebook page to express their distain.

"Why oh why would you drop Delia?" they wrote. "We have used her recipes for years... Pippa is hardly a famous cook, perhaps a few cupcakes, does that qualify her for the job?" Meow!

Poor old Pips has been widely criticised for capitalising off her sister's fame and has been accused of making a mockery of the food and publishing industry.

"She is not a cook, not a writer and has not really done anything but get this all of the back of her sister," editor of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward has said. "Generally, there is a feeling that she is simply capitalising off the situation."

Would you blame Pippa for capitalising? We're pretty sure we'd make the most of the situation if we were her.
