There are reports going about that Kate Middleton wants to work in New York City, upon the advice of designer Tom Ford and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

The decision is said to have been precipitated by Prince William committing to an extended time in the Royal Air Force. Kate is reportedly keen to “expand her horizons” and gain more work experience. She has worked for clothing chain Jigsaw and is currently involved in her parents’ party supplies company, Party Pieces.

This is not the first time that Kate is rumored to have plans of moving to the Big Apple. Remember the Mario Testino stories? It was right at this time last year that reports came out that Kate would train with photographer Mario Testino in New York. The rumor was subsequently squashed by the lensman himself.

This latest round of reports may be just more of the same. Kate has never been in New York, as far as I know. If she moves away while Prince William is in the RAF, that would mean they would get even fewer chances of seeing each other.

What do you think of this rumor? True or not?
