‘Thrilled’ Pippa Middleton tells sister Kate she is ‘PREGNANT’ ahead of a third royal baby
PIPPA Middleton has told her close friends and family that she is “pregnant” after her 12-week scan ahead of her sister’s birth of a third royal baby, it has been reported.
A friend of Pippa declared that the Duchess of Cambridge “could not have been more delighted” after being told that her younger sister was pregnant.
They added: “When Pippa found out she was pregnant, she was obviously thrilled and utterly overjoyed.
“Naturally, big sister Kate and parents, Carole and Michael, were the first people she told — James aside — and they could not have been more delighted.”
They also told The Sun that the news “provided some much-needed happiness”.
The friend went on: “It’s been a tough few weeks for the two families, so this has provided some much-needed happiness and light relief.”
It is understood that Kate Middleton was the second person to hear that her sister was pregnant.
Pippa’s husband, James Matthews, was the first to find out about the news.
The source detailed that the couple have “always known they wanted children”.
They went on: “They have made the most of their first few months of marriage and felt the time was right to expand their family.”
It is understood that Pippa’s due date is in October.
Pippa Middleton’s announcement comes shortly after her father-in-law found himself engulfed in accusations that he r*ped a teenager in the 1990s.
A source close to David Matthews reportedly described accusations he committed such an act as “outrageous” and claimed he was being “set up”.
The 74-year-old was alleged to have carried out two attacks between 1998 and 1999 in France and the Caribbean island of St Barts.
French officials had declared Mr. Matthews had been placed under investigation for the “rape of a minor”.
However, the father-in-law has vehemently denied the accusations against him.
While her sister is understood to have had a 12-week scan on her pregnancy, the Duchess of Cambridge could give birth to her third royal baby any day now.
The royal’s due date is on Monday 23 April.
