The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister gave birth to a baby boy at the Lindo Wing, on Monday 15 October, at 1.58pm, weighing 8lb and 9oz, according to The Daily Mail.

Pippa was reportedly spotted arriving with her husband James, who was carrying two overnight bags, at the private maternity unit at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington yesterday. 

In a short statement, Kensington Palace said: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are thrilled for Pippa and James.”
