MEANWHILE, I can reveal that Pippa and James, 43, have given their son a very Royal name – Arthur. He has the middle names Michael and William, like Pippa’s brother-in-law. The former is a touching tribute to Pippa’s father and also to her husband’s younger brother, who died while climbing Mount Everest in 1999.
And it seems that Pippa hasn’t given up on her literary ambitions – on Arthur’s birth certificate she lists her profession as ‘author’. Her only book, party planning guide Celebrate, was panned for offering ‘painfully obvious’ advice when it was published in 2012.
