Will Pippa Middleton get pregnant this year?

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, announced this month that she is expecting her third child.

And in August a source revealed that the Middleton sisters are dreaming of getting pregnant together.

According to US Weekly, Kate and William have been waiting for the right time to expand their family and the opportunity may just have arrived with the wedding of Pippa to James Matthews.

The sisters have always been close and have shared the desire of getting pregnant at the same time at some point in their lives.

“It’s long been a dream for Kate and Pippa to be pregnant at the same time,” a Middleton family friend told the publication. “To share that would be amazing.”

Long before their wedding, Pippa and Matthews, 42, were talking about taking the next step.

“Pippa’s always said how great it would be if they were to be expecting together,” the source added.

“Starting a family is something they’ve talked about long before they got married,” a friend of Kate’s little sister said. “Pippa has always meant how good it would be if they were expecting babies together.”

The announcement for a third royal baby has been made by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge this month. We can only wait for similar news from Pippa and James.
