The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's three children have just received another addition to their extended family, as Pippa Middleton gives birth to her third baby with husband James Matthews. 

Pippa Middleton has given birth to her third child with husband James Matthews, according to People magazine. 

The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister reportedly welcomed a baby daughter 'a couple of weeks ago', shortly after photos of her with an apparent pregnancy bump at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations circulated online. The images sparked quite the stir amongst royal fans, with many gushing about 'glowing' Pippa's new hair and green maxi dress during the Queen's Platinum Party at Buckingham Palace

It's understood that the 38-year-old delivered the infant at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London, which is the same maternity ward she gave birth to her two first children, Arthur, 3, and one-year-old Grace. Prince William and Kate Middleton also had their three children, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and four-year-old Prince Louis, at the luxurious Paddington clinic.

The heartwarming baby news comes shortly after it was revealed that Pippa and James have bought a £15m stately home in Berkshire, just a 20-minute journey from the Middletons' family home of Bucklebury Manor. 

It's understood that the Georgian mansion, which sits on 150 acres of land and boasts an incredible 30 rooms, was bought privately by the affluent couple after a multimillion pound restoration project. 

Prince William and Kate Middleton also have moving plans this summer, as they up sticks to the countryside with their children after living at Kensington Palace for more than ten years. It's understood that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are determined to give their children more privacy by raising them in Berkshire, whilst continuing to fulfill their royal duties in Central London. The move will also allow them to be closer to the Queen, who now resides permanently at Windsor Castle
