Pippa Middleton dished to Matt Lauer — in an interview to air next week on the “Today Show — about her relationship with her sister Kate now that she is the Duchess of Cambridge.

In her first ever television interview, Middleton said her sister’s 2011 Royal Wedding to Prince William has “not particularly” changed their bond.

She noted that they have a “very normal, sisterly relationship.”

“We’re very close,” she said. “And, you know, we support each other and get each other’s opinions and things.”

Prince George’s aunt added, “I mean, obviously she has pressures that she’s taken on and things, but we spend a lot of time together.”

“We still do a lot together as a family,” Middleton explained. “And I think that’s really the heart for all of us is having a really close family that we can sort of be normal with each other, treat each other normally. That’s sort of kept us all, you know, affixed to the ground.”

The English socialite and author also shared her thoughts on the U.S. after biking across 12 states for charity as a part of “Race Across America.”

“Through the trip it was just amazing to go through so many different states and just see the diversity of the landscape, the countryside — it’s huge,” she said of the experience.

“I love it — It’s very friendly, very welcoming,” she added. “And we felt that the entire way.”

Middleton noted, “The scenery was incredible. And I think that’s 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.”

Lauer’s full interview with Middleton is set to air on the “Today Show” on June 30 and July 1.
