Middleton, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, appeared to carry on a family tradition with the name “Elizabeth” in their daughter’s which also happens to be the middle name of her sister Kate’s and their mother Carole Middleton.

In December, reports surfaced the duchess’ sister and husband were expecting their second child together, Page Six reported.

Pippa gave birth in 2018 to a baby boy after revealing she and James were expecting their first child with a column she wrote in the Waitrose Weekend magazine, per the BBC. In the piece, she shared she had not suffered the same severe morning sickness that her sister had experienced with all three of her pregnancies.

“I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness,” Middleton wrote at the time. “That meant I was able to carry as normal and continue my sports.”

Pippa and James tied the knot in 2017 at a ceremony at St. Marks church in Englefield, England, that was attended by other members of the royal family.
