Our long, hot summer is coming to an end Monday with the autumnal equinox, which marks the beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere. Although some people claim the autumnal equinox is the "official" start of fall, there is no administrative or political organization that actually designates that. On the autumnal equinox, the amount of daylight and night are both roughly 12 hours long over most of the world.

Matt Lauer wanted to add a little royal flair to "Today" in the form of Kate Middleton's sister Pippa, according to a new report.

Page Six claims that the former host wanted Pippa to become a regular contributor, and even tried to recruit her to the morning show by shutting down a fancy restaurant, Donohue's Steak House in New York, for a meeting. The report didn't specify when the meeting occurred, but said the royal sibling was accompanied by her publicist at the time. Other "Today" executives were also there.

Lauer, according to the report, not only interviewed her, but he also set up a test shoot for Pippa at a ranch in Montana.

The result was "excruciating," a source said.

"Pippa wasn't comfortable with any of it. Buckingham Palace was putting her under tremendous pressure not to go forward or cause any embarrassment to her sister," the source added. "Matt and Pippa were never alone, and she wasn't really interested in the job, but nevertheless NBC staffers were nervous about Matt's interest in Pippa."

NBC ultimately decided not to offer a job to Pippa, who's now a happily married mother.

And that breaks my heart.'The 62-year-old journalist took to Twitter on Wednesday to express her support for Brooke Nevils, who claims in Ronan Farrow's upcoming book, Catch and Kill, that she was anally raped by Matt Lauer when they were both working for NBC at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Lauer has denied all allegations against him.

Lauer was eventually fired from NBC in 2017 following claims of inappropriate sexual behavior. His ouster was thrust back into the spotlight last week after the release of Ronan Farrow's newest book, "Catch and Kill." In the book, Brooke Nevils, who served as Meredith Viera's assistant on "Today," alleged that Lauer raped her during the 2014 Sochi Olympics. In an open letter, Lauer vehemently denied that accusation, indicating their relationship was consensual.
