It’s official: Princess Charlotte, Prince George and Prince Louis are getting a new cousin this year – Pippa Middleton has confirmed she is expecting her first child.
The younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge confirmed the news in her latest fitness column for Waitrose Kitchen, the UK supermarkets monthly magazine.
In the column about exercising during pregnancy, Pippa wrote about her experience of the first trimester – which was quite different from her sister, Kate Middleton’s experience.
Unlike Princess Kate, 34-year-old author and columnist Pippa did not suffer from severe morning sickness or Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG).
“I was lucky to pass the 12-week (mark) without suffering from morning sickness,” she wrote. “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.”

Kate Middleton suffered from HG and it gave her such intense morning sickness, she was unable to carry out her royal duties during the first trimester of all three of her pregnancies.
Pippa, on the other hand, has been able to maintain a fairly normal routine and even fit in a pregnancy exercise routine.
“I’ve noticed my body change, but through exercise I feel it’s being strengthened,” Pippa wrote of her pregnancy.
