Kate Middleton felt under ‘pressure’ after pregnancy, sister Pippa says

The Duchess of Cambridge felt 'pressures' after she gave birth to Prince George, her sister Pippa revealed.

Pippa Middleton, 37, who is known for keeping a low profile away from the Royal Family unearthed her sister's experiences during an interview in 2014.

She discussed their sisterly relationship and how that had changed since Kate joined the Firm in 2011, reports The Express.

When asked how things had changed, she said: "Not particularly, I mean obviously she has pressures that she's taking on and things but we spend a lot of time together.

"We still do a lot together as a family and I think that sort of the part for all of us is having a really close family that we can sort of be normal with each other, treat each other normally and that sort of keeps us fixed to the ground."

She added: "We have a very normal sister relationship, where we're very close and we support each other and get each other's opinions and things."

The interview first aired in 2014 on Today, a year after the Duchess gave birth to Prince George.

She was asked about what her new nephew was like, saying: "It's wonderful, he's amazing. He's a very, very dear boy and he's brought a lot of pleasure and fun for all of us, the whole family.

"He's very characterful and he's bringing us all together and we love spending weekends with him and he's very funny."

She added: "We have a very normal sister relationship, where we're very close and we support each other and get each other's opinions and things."

Pippa shares a special bond with the little prince, after he played a major role in her wedding in 2017, carrying out the role of page boy.

But he stole the headlines after he was seen crying during the proceedings, having to be taken off by mother Kate for a quick talk to calm him down.

The Middletons' mother Carole also discussed the pressures, including what it was like to be a parent in the build up to a royal wedding, especially when your daughter is to marry a future heir to the throne.

In 2018 she said: "I think the most important thing, as a parent, is to listen to what your daughter wants.
