Pippa Middleton ‘pregnant with her second child’ and ‘thrilled’

Pippa Middleton is pregnant with her second child, according to reports.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister already has a two-year-old son named Arthur.

She is now reportedly expecting her second child with husband James Matthews.

The couple are expecting, citing a source close to the family.

The baby will be another cousin for Kate Middleton and Prince William’s royal tots.

Prince George is now 7, Princess Charlotte is 5, and Prince Louis is aged two.

A source said to be close to the family told Page Six: “Pippa and James are thrilled, it’s fantastic news amid a difficult year. The entire family is delighted.”

The couple, who wed in 2017 and live in London, declined to comment to the New York publication on reports they are expecting a second child.

The couple are also reportedly said to be in the market for a new home closer to Pippa and Kate’s parents.

They are said to be eyeing a home near Michael and Carole Middleton’s Berkshire property.

Kate and William recently admitted they are facing difficult decisions on their Christmas plans like millions of others in the UK.

The Government is allowing people to form Christmas ‘bubbles’ of three households for five days over the festive period.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed the plan would continue despite ramping up restrictions today, including placing London in Tier 3.

While the relaxed festive period rules would allow Pippa and her family to travel across counties to be with family for Christmas, Kate revealed the Middletons’ plans were still being worked out.

Kate and William told students in Cardiff, Wales, that they didn’t know who to spend Christmas with during the period of relaxed restrictions.

William said: “It is so difficult, we are still trying to make plans,’ William said. “It’s difficult to know what to do for the best.”

The Queen, 94, will be spending Christmas at Windsor Castle, and not celebrating with family at Sandringham this year in a break with tradition.

The Government has urged Brits to celebrate carefully despite insisting restrictions can be relaxed briefly.

Ministers urged people to consider carefully whether they should include elderly and vulnerable relatives in their plans.

Mr Hancock told the nation in a press conference on Monday that people wanting to spend Christmas with family should reduce their social contact with others before visiting begins.
