Pippa Middleton is getting closer to welcoming her first child.

Pippa, who is due this month, was seen smiling as she entered the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital — the same place where her older sister Kate Middleton gave birth to all three of her children — on Monday. Her husband, James Matthews, carried large bags into the hospital, according to photos obtained by the Daily Mail.

Kate made three memorable post-baby debuts on the steps of the Lindo Wing as she introduced the world to each child soon after their births. Prince William and Prince Harry also made their royal debuts on the famous steps while in the arms of their mother, Princess Diana.

On Friday, Pippa arrived at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank‘s royal wedding. The first-time mom, 35, wore a green bespoke Emilia Wickstead dress and matching fascinator along with black heels.

The trip to the hospital comes the same day as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared they are expecting their first child.

A royal source tells PEOPLE that Meghan has had her 12-week ultrasound and is “feeling well.”
