There’s a little cousin on the way for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, with Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa reportedly pregnant with her second baby.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister has a two-year-old son, Arthur, with husband James Matthews.
According to Page Six, Pippa and James are thrilled that their son is soon to be a big brother, with the happy news very welcome after a difficult year. It comes amid news of stricter lockdowns across parts of the UK, with many families – including the royals – unsure what Christmas holds.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge told students in Wales, they’re not sure who to spend the festive season with. “It is so difficult, we are still trying to make plans,” William said. “It’s difficult to know what to do for the best.”
Pippa and James married in 2017, with Pippa sharing the news of her first pregnancy via a magazine article. She revealed that during her first pregnancy she avoided the severe morning sickness that her sister Kate suffered throughout her pregnancies.
Pippa Middleton’s first birth
Just hours after Prince Harry and Meghan announced they were expecting a royal bub in 2018, Pippa Middleton became a mum.
Pippa and husband James Matthews welcomed their first baby, an 8lb 9oz boy, just after 1am on October 15, 2018 Australian time at the same hospital where her brother-in-law William and sister Kate had Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte.
A spokesperson for Pippa said at the time, “Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well. A Kensington Palace spokesman said Prince William and Kate Middleton are ‘thrilled’ for the new parents. Pippa was a guest at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank just days ago
