Pippa, 38, and James, 46, are already parents to Arthur, born in October 2018, and Grace, who arrived in March 2021. It is thought that their new baby girl arrived a couple of weeks ago, a month after Pippa was seen proudly displaying her bump in a flowing green dress at the Party at the Palace concert for the Platinum Jubilee.
Kate’s younger sister gave birth in the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London, the same place where George, Charlotte and Louis were born, reported PEOPLE magazine. There is no word yet on their new arrival’s name. This new baby will be a fifth cousin for the Cambridge children, alongside Pippa’s elder children and Harry and Meghan’s children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.
She will also be the sixth grandchild for Carole and Michael Middleton. Carole Middleton told Good Housekeeping about being a grandmother: “I want to run down the hills, climb the trees and go through the tunnel at the playground. “As long as I am able to, that’s what I’ll be doing. I cook with them, I muck around dancing, we go on bike rides.”
A source revealed that the Middleton clan will soon be much closer together, as Pippa and James are reportedly planning to move their family to a village near Bucklebury, in Berkshire to a property thought to be worth £15million.
This is where Pippa, Kate and their brother James grew up and where their parents still live.
It is also only a 50 minute drive away from Windsor, where Kate and William are said to be moving over the summer.
A source told the magazine that Pippa and James have been looking forward to settling down, “having children and leading a quiet life”. Pippa and James Matthews were married in May 2017 at St Mark’s Church in Englefield, also in Berkshire.
