Unlike her sister's children, Pipa Middleton's future offsprings will not have a royal title.

As reported by Town & Country, Middleton, 34,  and her husband, James Matthews do not have royal titles so their children will also not have one.

Matthews and Middleton have honorary titles - the Laird and Lady of Glen Affic. These titles came with the purchase of 10,000-acre Glen Affric estate in the Scottish Highlands by Matthews' father, David Matthews.

"Pippa is Mrs. James Matthews, [so] her kids will be Master or Miss Christian name Matthews. No titles whatsoever," Marlene Koenig, a royal historian and writer, told Town and Country.

"I was lucky to pass the 12 week scan without suffering from morning sickness. That meant I was able to carry on as normal," Hello Magazine quoted her as saying.

In all her pregnancies, her older sister suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition where a pregnant woman suffers from severe morning sickness.

"When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant I realised I needed to adjust my 4 to 5-day-a-week routine," the younger Middleton wrote.
