The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa gave birth to a baby boy this week, but she is yet to receive a visit from her royal sibling.

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews welcomed their first child at the exclusive Lindo Wing, on Monday 15 October, weighing 3.8kg or 8lb and 9oz.

And while their brother James Middleton was one of the first to visit the new parents, Kate, who became an aunty for the first time, has yet to be seen at the hospital.

Despite the excitement of a new baby, Kensington Palace revealed that Kate actually was busy with an unannounced engagement on Tuesday. The 36-year-old held a meeting for one of her charity initiatives at her home.

“The Duchess of Cambridge this morning held a Meeting of experts convened by the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to inform Her Royal Highness’s charitable “Early Years” initiative,” a statement by the Court Circular, which documents the engagements of the royal family, read.

The Early Years initiative is part of the Duchess’ campaign to help children failed by ‘Broken Britain’. Because the meeting was a private engagement, no photographs were taken and it was not announced until after it had taken place. 

But while Kate is believed to have not yet met her nephew, she and hubby Prince William have expressed their joy over the arrival.

In a short statement, Kensington Palace said: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are thrilled for Pippa and James.”

No doubt we will be seeing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their new nephew very soon.
