Kate Middleton may skip Princess Eugenie's wedding because of Pippa

It's been a busy past few months for the royal family, especially on the baby front.

While we're hopeful for some happy baby news from Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, at the same time, we're keeping our eyes peeled for Prince Louis sightings and our ears open for more adorable Lena anecdotes. And with Pippa Middleton's upcoming due date in October, it's no doubt going to be a bustling fall.

With Kate Middleton still on maternity leave, we were hoping for a duchess sighting at Princess Eugenie's nuptials on October 12. However, according to recent reports, the mom-of-three might have to skip out on this family affair because of Pippa.

Although Pippa's due date has not been announced, many are speculating that the birth of her child with James Matthews may conflict with Eugenie's wedding -- Kate will likely have to choose between the family nuptials or welcoming her sister's baby. Pippa was reportedly at Kate's side during the birth of Prince Louis.

Sources reveal that Kate has been supporting her sister through her first pregnancy with advice and has even shared hand-me-downs from Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
