Pippa Middleton says Serena Williams is Her Fit Pregnancy Inspo

pippa serena

Pippa Middleton is skipping her sis Kate Middleton and looking across the pond for her pregnancy spirit animal: Serena Williams.

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, who announced her pregnancy early in the year, wrote in her regular column for Waitrose Kitchen, the monthly magazine for the Waitrose chain of British supermarkets, Waitrose that she sees Meghan Markle‘s buddy Williams as exemplifying what she would like to do whilst preggers and afterwords.

“I’ve been a tennis fan since childhood, as a player and spectator, and have been keen to continue playing safely throughout my pregnancy,” she wrote. “Take Serena Williams. She famously proved that women can play a high level of tennis from two months (when she won the 2017 Australian Open) up to eight months.”

She also pointed out Williams’ perseverance as a source for inspiration.

“Few of us can relate to this elite excellence,” she stated. “But if you’re a healthy, well-trained player with an uncomplicated pregnancy there’s no reason why you can’t continue a good level of tennis.”

No lies told here, Pippa!

Daily Mail recently reported that Pippa has decided to continue playing tennis while pregnant. Well we know where she got that idea from…. (smile)

Williams returned to Grand Slam and passed the first round.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Married!

Today, Suits actress Meghan Markle and her fiancé married at the St. George Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The bride looked elegant and radiant in a simple but classic long sleeve satin gown by Givenchy with a cathedral train. She also wore a heirloom tiara, little make up and tiny silver  studded earrings with hair hair simple. Nothing ornate or over-the-top.

The ceremony infused her African American culture with British traditon. The Kingdom Choir, a predominantly black Christian gospel choir from South London performed a marvelous rendition of the Ben E. King R&B song “Stand By Me” during the ceremony and the Gospel version of “Amen” during the recession, and ended it with “This Little Light Of Mine” which is commonly sung in black churches.

An American Episcopalian clergy, Bishop Michael Curry, gave a spirited and passionate 20-minute love-themed sermon that invoked quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr. and scripture.

It has been the talk of the Internet because of how different it is from the usual stoic sermons heard at formal Royal religious ceremonies.

A 19-year old cellist with Sierra Leonean and Caribbean heritage from a large musical family, Sheku Kanneh-Mason beautifully performed a number of selection.

It was a preeminent event witnessed by thousands who lined the streets along the route to the chapel and the millions watching on Tv and screens across the globe.

Along with Markle’s brand new sister in law Pippa Middleton who is expecting her first child, also in attendance were new moms, Pippa’s sister Kate Middleton, Amal Clooney and Serena Williams with their respective spouses Best Man Prince William, George Clooney and Alexis Ohanian.

Vet Mom designer, tastemaker and Spice Girl alum Victoria Beckham and her hubby David Beckham were there too looking debonair and dapper. Oh Lady Oprah Winfrey attended along with the usual band of royals and British celebs!

Congrats!

Tomorrow morning, American actress Meghan Markle will marry her fiance, Prince Harry of Windsor at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle,  in London, England. The wedding is a much-anticipated event, more so for the fashion and the glorious fascinators that are commonly worn at formal events in the UK. .

The fashion world gets a little taste of these ornate head tiny hats are a selection of fancy millinery every time Duchess Catherine, formerly Kate Middleton, goes to Church!

I have been invited to be a witness to the wedding. And “by invited” I mean Buckingham palace is allowing  my local broadcast and video programming providers to stream or air it so me and all members of the worldwide public on our television screens and streaming devices and services. Ha!

I will be dressed to the nines, or my pajamas, depending on what’s comfortable  and have selected 7 fascinators to wear with my outfit. Which is your fave?

Kate Middleton Bumps It Up with Meghan Markle at Commonwealth Service

Third-time mom-to-be Duchess Catherine of Cambridge and her husband Prince William were joined by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and the other royals at the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey this week.

The former Kate Middleton recycled a coat she has worn before, a navy wool Beulah Chiara London coat with a matching Jimmy Choo clutch and Malory’ pumps by Rupert Sanderson.

In her third trimester, Kate’s bump was visible through her coat as she and the royal pair greeted children at the event.

Interestingly enough, whoever styles Kate must also style Former actress Markle because she too was outfitted in an A-line coat with clean lines and in a primary color, well off white but you know, classic solids.

Both women wore wool hats that matched their coats. All of the other royals wore variations of navy and white so I think it was planned.

It is a classic and conservative aesthetic that is unique to Kate’s style.

If you look at how Kate dressed compared to as a married duchess, you can see the evolution and change.

I like their look but if it is too similar, it will give off a Stepford Wives vibe to me.

Not Talked About as Much but Kate Middleton is In Her Last Trimester Already

While everyone has been obsessing over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s pending nuptials and the Jenner-Kardashian baby boom, the Duchess of Cambridge and former Kate Middleton has been busy making her royal duties while 7-months preggers.

That’s right, you could barely tell by how tiny her bump is that Duchess Catherine is well into her third and final trimester and a few weeks away from delivering another Royal baby.

The previously most talked about Royal is an official ambassador to Addiction and was photographed recently attending a charity center that helps adults overcome drug and substance abuse.  Now that her extreme morning sickness has subsided, Kate has been doing a lot of appearances of late.

You can nab her Eller Coat by GOAT in Marine Blue for £420 or $583.

Bump Speculation: Meghan Markle at Pippa Middleton’s Wedding Reception

89c946ff-d93a-4830-97f8-b6d4aa22dee8

The sister to our most popular bumpwatched alum Catherine Duchess of Cambridge (nee Kate Middleton) got married on Saturday, May 20 at St. Mark’s church in England:

Pippa Middleton married her fiancé of two years, hedge fund manager James Matthews, at a lavish ceremony where her niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in the wedding party, along with sister Kate and princes Harry and William.

The bride wore a jaw-dropping white lace gown courtesy of British designer Giles Deacon.

She also married into royalty as Matthews is the heir to a Scottish title. His father, David Matthews, is otherwise known as the Laird of Glen Affric, meaning that eventually, Pippa will be known as Lady of Glen Affric.

The ceremony was also notable for rumors that Pippa only permitted significant others who were fiance or married to a family member to attend- a so-called “no ring, no bring” policy.

William’s bro is famously seriously dating American actress Meghan Marke. While the Suits star didn’t make the ceremony, the Daily Mail reports that she did attend other wedding weekend events including a Bucklebury,  Bershire event and  air exhibition at the Middleton’s estate.

Markel attended while Pippa’s brother-in-law Spencer Matthews‘ girlfriend Vogue Williams did not. So…hmmmm

Also, we don’t think it is there, but a few folks thought they saw a slight bump on her recently, sparking Bumpwatch and marriage speculation widely.

Time will tell.
