Pippa Middleton names son Arthur Michael William Matthews as tribute to her father and husband's younger brother
The Duchess of Cambridge's sister welcomed her baby boy, who weighed only 8lb and 9oz, at the private Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, last month
Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews have finally announced the name of their baby boy. The couple has named their child Arthur Michael William Matthews as a lovely tribute to Middleton's father, Michael Middleton, as well as her husband's younger brother, Michael Matthews, who tragically passed away while climbing Mt Everest.
The Duchess of Cambridge's sister welcomed her baby boy, who weighed 8lb and 9oz, at the private Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, last month. However, at the time, the newborn's name had been kept under wraps.
As per reports, Mathews' brother Michael went missing on Everest's notorious Death Zone while he was trying to achieve the title of being the youngest Briton to climb the world’s highest peak, back in 1999. After his death, Matthews, along with wife Pippa, dedicated themselves towards fundraising for poverty-stricken areas in Africa and Asia through the Michael Matthews Foundation.
Pippa and James' baby's arrival came right after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were expecting a child. According to the same report, Pippa has been named as an author by profession on herher baby's birth certificate.
It was last month that Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and her husband Prince William were seen emerging out from the same unit of the maternity wing where the Duchess herself had given birth to her three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The world last got a look of the youngest prince at his christening in July. And a new picture of six-month-old Prince Louis has been released, where the royal baby is seen holding his grandfather Prince Charles' hand, while his mother Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton holds him in the new BBC One documentary on the royal family, 'Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70'.
In this new picture, the royal mom-of-three, Kate Middleton, is seen in a navy blue outfit with white polka dots carrying the Prince who appears to have darker hair compared to his older siblings. The new documentary by BBC marks Prince Charles' 70th birthday on November 14 and his son Prince William has said that he is "brilliant" with his kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
“It’s something I’m working more heavily on, put it that way,” William, said in the documentary, which aired on BBC One last week. “I think he does have time for it, but I would like him to have more time with the children," William said.
