Pippa Middleton has given birth to her second child, a daughter named Grace Elizabeth Jane. The baby was born at 4.22am on Monday 15 March, weighing 6lbs 7oz.

“Mother and baby are doing well,” a family spokesperson told The Independent.

She and her husband James welcomed their first child Arthur in 2018. Grace will be cousin to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The newborn shares a middle name with her Royal aunt Kate, her grandmother Carole Middleton and her cousin Charlotte. Jane, on the other hand, is the name of James’ mother.

Middleton married James in 2017 at St Mark’s Church in Englefield at a wedding attended by the Cambridges. The couple first met in 2007 in St Barths, but didn’t start dating until early 2016.

The family live in a five-storey property in London, which they renovated in 2017.

Pippa previously spoke openly about her first pregnancy, explaining that – unlike her older sister Kate – she didn’t suffer from severe morning sickness.

“I was lucky to pass the 12-week [mark] without suffering from morning sickness,” she wrote in a column for Waitrose magazine. “That meant I was able to carry on as normal and continue most of my sports with better knowledge and, more importantly, professionals to learn from.”
