Kate Middleton’s known for being the perfect royal who attends every big event no matter what – let’s not forget her fronting up to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding just weeks after giving birth to Prince Louis.

But the Duchess of Cambridge could be a no-show at the next hugely anticipated royal event, thanks to clashing family commitments.

With Princess Eugenie set to tie the knot with her wine merchant fiancé Jack Brooksbank on October 12th, it’s been revealed Kate might be forced to choose between royal commitments and her sister, Pippa Middleton.

It’s been reported Pippa is due to give birth to her first child with husband James Matthews in October, with the duchess no doubt keen to be close to her sister for the happy occasion.

“If Kate wants to be at her sister’s side at her home in London, it is to be hoped the timing does not clash with Eugenie’s wedding in Windsor,” reports the Express.

“[Pippa] will be nine-months-pregnant and due any day by the time Princess Eugenie’s wedding comes around.”

Pippa was in attendance at Harry and Meghan’s wedding back in May, with Kate’s family very much a part of royal life.

But given how notoriously close the sisters are – Pippa was Kate’s bridesmaid during her 2011 wedding to Prince William – insiders say it’s likely the duchess will make sure her family comes first when it comes to Pippa’s birth.
