She may have friends in high places, a bum that captured the world's attention, and enough free time to bike across the United States for charity, but when it comes to talking about her nephew, Pippa Middleton is just like the rest of us.
In an interview this week with the Today Show, the famous aunt couldn't help but gush over Prince George. When asked about the future king, Pippa burst into a smile so big, even interviewer Matt Lauer took note. She said being an aunt was "wonderful" and called the 11-month-old "a very dear boy" who's "brought a lot of pleasure and fun for all of us, the whole family." And like most babies, George has brought the already tight-knit Middletons even closer. "We love spending weekends with him," Pippa says. "He's very funny."
Also refreshingly normal was Pippa's description of her relationship with her royal sister. Apparently, despite the adorable baby, snazzy title, and fancy new home, Kate and her sister are still very close and spend plenty of time together. "We still do a lot together as a family," she explains. "And I think that's sort of the heart for all of us, having a really close family. We can sort of be normal with each other, treat each other normally, and that's sort of kept us all fixed to the ground."
