The Duchess, 38, and Pippa Middleton, 37, have always enjoyed a healthy bond as sisters. During their single days, the two women were often pictured socializing in Chelsea where they lived together in their parents’ house.
So when Princess Charlotte was born the following year and the Cambridges announced the name of their first daughter, some royal fans suggested there could have been more than a royal bond involved.
While Charlotte was considered one of the more obvious choices for a girl’s name as it is the female version of Charles, it is also Pippa’s middle name.
Speaking in 2014, Pippa said of the Middleton clan: “We can be normal to each other and that has kept us all fixed to the ground. ”
And of her bond with Kate, she said, “We have a very normal sibling relationship.
“We are very close and we support each other and get each other’s opinions.”

James’ father is Laird of Glen Affric, a 10,000 acre estate in Scotland.
When he inherits the title, Pipa will acquire the title courtesy of Lady Glen Affric.
The couple’s son, Arthur Michael William, was born in October 2018.
The family of three lives in Chelsea, not far from the Camrbidges’ apartment at Kensington Palace.
And it looks like another member of the Middleton family may soon be joining them in the exclusive West London neighborhood.
James Middleton and his fiancee Alizee Thevenet are said to be eyeing properties in the area.
The soon-to-be-married couple have been forced to postpone their nuptials due to the coronavirus crisis.
They announced their engagement last October.
James broke the good news to his Instagram followers after a friend told a newspaper that he gave the Frenchwoman a spectacular ring.
The boyfriend said, “They got engaged. Alizée wears a magnificent sparkling sapphire. ”
