PIPPA Middleton is expecting her second child with husband James Matthews, according to reports.
And if the birth of her firstborn Arthur is anything to go by, Pippa, 37, will again enjoy a five-star birthing experience at the £7,500-a-night Lindo Wing ward – which big sister Kate, 38, loves too.
When Arthur, now two, was due to arrive in October 2018, pregnant mum Pippa checked into the swanky London private maternity ward for the labour.
The pricey ward is popular with royals, with Princess Diana having Princes William and Harry there, and Kate giving birth to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis there too.
The wing, in St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, is a stone’s throw from Pippa’s £17 million mansion in Chelsea.
The exclusive wing provides a premium service for expectant and new mothers, with all patients given a private room with an en suite, which comes with phones and fridges.
Deluxe rooms or suites are also available for anyone willing to fork out – and it’s thought Kate gave birth in one of these.
There are in-room services for new mums including massages, and there’s also a supervised nursery so you drop off your new-born while you indulge.
The wing also offers satellite TV with major international channels as well as radio, WiFi and newspapers.
They have extensive menus and can cater for any dietary requirement, and there’s also a wine list – with champagne – to accompany it.
If you’re still hungry, there’s also an afternoon tea service.
Prices start at £5,900-per-night for a standard room, while a deluxe will set you back £6,275.
A suite, where Kate is thought to have stayed, costs £7,500-per-night, and it’s thought Pippa followed suit.
The wing is known for catering for a range of famous and wealthy women, and many high-profile parents are willing to pay for their discretion.
Pippa and hedge fund manager James tied the knot in 2017, and they welcomed their son a year later.
Pippa and James named their firstborn Arthur Michael William Matthews.
The second name is of significance as not only is it Pippa's father's name but it also belonged to James' younger brother who died in a tragic mountaineering accident on Everest in 1999, just after becoming the youngest British man to climb to its peak.
On April 21 2018, The Sun exclusively revealed Pippa's pregnancy with their first child.
Pippa's new arrival with husband James Matthews, 45, will be another cousin for Kate and William's three children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five and Prince Louis, two.
"The entire family is delighted.”
A source close to the family told Page Six: “Pippa and James are thrilled.
"It’s fantastic news amid a difficult year."
The couple are believed to be close to buying a 72-acre country estate called Bucklebury Farm Park in Berkshire.
The property is not far from the Middleton family home.
Representatives for Pippa declined to comment.
