With just weeks to go until they welcome their first child, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews have enjoyed a brief babymoon in Tuscany. The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister and her financier husband spent an idyllic three-day break in Italy, where they were pictured enjoying some quality time together under the sun.

Looking tanned, toned and positively blooming in a bikini, Pippa, 34, was seen caressing her baby bump as she soaked up the sun in Tuscany. The mum-to-be, whose baby will be a cousin for Kate’s children Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and four-month-old Prince Louis, relaxed on sun loungers with her husband at the excusive Il Pellicano hotel in Porto Ercole.

The couple, who married in May 2017, also enjoyed a spot of swimming, climbing into the ocean via a ladder from their hotel. Fitness fanatic Pippa took her goggles and swam laps along the coastline, taking breaks by lying on her back in the waves.

Pippa, who writes a fitness column in Waitrose Weekend magazine, recently told her readers how much she has been enjoying swimming during the latter stages of her pregnancy. “Swimming throughout pregnancy offers a wonderful feeling of weightlessness,” she said. “As the months pass, you feel heavier by the day, but being in water gives that floating, light-as-air feeling that soothes and relieves the body, counteracts increased back strain and stretches the legs from the growing bump.”

And she added: “As the summer weather contributes to feelings of bloating and swelling, swimming will keep your body cooler while exercising, something that is a relief in pregnancy.”
