Is Pippa Middleton's Baby's Name a Nod to Her In-Laws?

The name of Pippa Middleton's baby son has FINALLY been revealed

The Duchess of Cambrige's sister, 35, welcomed her baby boy weighing 8lb and 9oz at the private Lindo Wing, at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, last month but at the time his name had been kept under wraps.

The inspiration for his other middle name is thought to be from the new mum's brother-in-law Prince William.

Michael is thought to be a tribute to both Middleton's father and James Matthews' late brother, Michael, who died in 1999 at just 22 years old while climbing Mount Everest, according to the Mail.

James' younger brother Spencer also chose Michael as the middle name of his newborn son Theodore.

Rumours surfaced in April 2018 that Pippa was pregnant, shortly before Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince Louis.

On October 16, Middleton gave birth to a son just three hours after arriving at hospital.


Arthur will be first cousins with royals Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, along with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's future baby.

"James and Pippa have had a baby boy", it read.

Kate and husband Prince William were clearly over the moon for Pippa and James with a statement from Kensington Palace reading: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are thrilled for Pippa and James".

But the news wasn't made public until October 16, followed by a statement from Pippa's older sister, Kate Middleton, and brother-in-law, Prince William, saying they are "thrilled" for the couple.

On baby Arthur's birth certificate mother Pippa Middleton's profession is also listed as author.
