The 35-year-old gave birth in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, the same place her sister Kate Middleton has given birth to her three children.
Pippa announced her pregnancy in June, a little more than a year after marrying James in May 2017. She made the announcement in her fitness column in Waitrose Weekend, where she detailed the changes she was experiencing.
Though Pippa was not photographed arriving at the hospital, the Daily Mail posted photos of her husband carrying two large bags into the Lindo Wing on October 15, the same day of their son’s birth.
