Pippa Middleton, younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby boy on Monday, October 15th. Middleton and the baby are said to be “doing well" following his arrival at precisely 1:58 p.m. weighing in at 8lb and 9oz.
Pippa, 35, welcomed her son with husband James Matthews, 43. This is the couple’s first child. Pippa gave birth at the prestigious Lindo Wing in central London, the same hospital her sister Kate gave birth to all three of her children.
Family members have already been spotted going into the hospital to meet the newest member. Pippa’s brother James was photographed arriving to meet his new nephew. It is expected that Pippa’s parents Michael and Carol will soon follow after to meet their grandson. But don’t expect big sister Kate to arrive at the hospital for her first meet and greet with her nephew.
Reports are saying that Kate Middleton will visit with her sister and nephew shortly after she is released from the hospital in a private setting. The family wants to avoid any media circus that follows Kate in any public setting. Kate walking up to the doors of the Lindo wing will ensure a media frenzy.
The Kensington Palace released a statement on behalf of the Duchess and Prince William on the arrival of Pippa’s and James baby. The statement read, “The Duke and Duchess are thrilled for Pippa and James."
Even though Pippa and James’ son won’t have an HRH title like his cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis we can hardly feel sorry for the newborn. The newborn may not be leaving the hospital for Kensington Palace but he is headed home to his $22 million five-story townhome located in the chic neighborhood of Chelsea.
Pippa and James’s son is practically guaranteed a life of extraordinary opportunities thanks to both of his parents elite pedigree’s but without the camera’s following him around like his cousins will have to endure.
