Just hours after Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child, a heavily pregnant Pippa Middleton has been spotted entering London maternity suite, Lindo Wing, with overnight bags.
The younger sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was seen entering Lindo Wing at St Mary's hospital earlier today. Lindo Wing is the same maternity suite where Duchess Catherine gave birth to Prince Louis earlier this year, and where the Duchess also gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
According to the Daily Mail Pippa, 35, was seen entering the Lindo Wing with financier husband James Matthews, 43. He was carrying what appeared to be two overnight bags.
Pippa, who was wearing a long blue coat, white shoes and sunglasses, was smiling as she entered the £7,500-a-night unit.
Pippa and James confirmed their pregnancy in June and in Pippa's latest column for England's England's Waitrose Kitchen magazine, the 35-year-old admitted "reality is finally kicking in" ahead of her due date.
"As the final month nears and the bump grows prouder each day, movement is certainly getting more awkward. The transformations to my body that are taking place as it prepares for childbirth have meant that the sound sleeps and the baby bubble effect have gone," she revealed.
We saw a heavily pregnant Pippa and husband James only on the weekend as they were photographed attending the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.
What a busy and exciting time it is for the royal family at the moment!
According to a Life and Style source Duchess Catherine has been giving her younger sister "lots of tips on what's to come and helping her with the nursery.
"She's also given Pippa some of Prince George and Princess Charlotte's hand-me-downs but is obviously keeping some for Prince Louis. Kate and Pippa have had so much fun shopping online for baby clothes and accessories!" the insider added.
The sisters are said to confide in each other about "everything".
"When they were younger they'd always share stories about boys and school life. Now they're sharing pregnancy stories!" the source said.
