Guests arrive for the royal wedding
It has certainly been a busy few months for Carole – as well as Kate giving birth to Prince Louis in April, her younger daughter Pippa is pregnant with her first child with husband James Matthews. According to The Sun on Sunday, Pippa, 34, and 42-year-old James, a hedge fund manager, are said to be "overjoyed" with the news. They got engaged in July 2016, and tied the knot at St Mark's Church in Englefield on 20 May 2017. It is believed that Pippa and James told close family and friends the happy news after the 12-week scan. Pippa and Kate are famously close, with Pippa serving as Maid of Honour at her 2011 wedding to Prince William, where she dutifully held up the train on her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress.
