CELEBRITY British royal family
The British royal family has many reasons to celebrate recently. From Meghan Markle announcing her pregnancy, and Princess Eugenie's beautiful wedding, to Kate Middleton's sister, Pippa, giving birth to a baby boy!
While the news of the new addition to the extended family brings nothing but excitement, the Duchess of Cambridge has yet to visit her new nephew in the hospital, and likely won't at all.
The Kensington Palace released a statement that Middleton was attending an unannounced charity event on Tuesday, which kept her away from visiting her sister.
In addition, Express UK has reported that Middleton will stay away from the hospital as a way of avoiding a complete media frenzy and to give the new family some space.
Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews, gave birth to a baby boy, who weighed 8lb and 9oz on Monday, October 15, at 1:58 pm, just after a short three-hour labour. Congratulations to the new parents!
